CLA - Get Ready To Get Ripped!
What is CLA and what is all the excitement about? CLA stands for Conjugated Linoleic Acid and is a fatty acid naturally occurring in dairy products, red meat, sunflower and safflower oil. Grazing cows and sheep have a microorganism that makes CLA, that is if they are free ranged! These days they are artificially fatted and farm feed. This has led to a drastic reduction in the level of CLA in these animals. However humans must get this from food sources if we are to appreciate the numerous benefits CLA offers. So how does a fatty acid help you lose body fat?
Let’s talk about one of the many benefits CLA has which is the ability to help control insulin sensitivity. Insulin is a anabolic muscle building hormone and helps transport fatty acids and glucose into the muscle cells and away from fat tissue. This equates to larger leaner muscles. CLA has also been found to not only reduce the size of large fat cells but more importantly has shown to have the ability to prevent small fat cells from increasing in size. Sounds too good to be true, in this case it’s the real thing. Research has confirmed that CLA not only reduce the percentage of stored body fat especially around the abdomen but it also stimulates lean muscle mass.
One of the many benefits of being a natural bodybuilder is that over time you learn to gain control of your metabolism without the assistance of illegal pharmaceutical dietary aids. CLA will help you gain that control even more effectively. Like any other natural supplement CLA works slowly but be assured that it works. Also it has a surprising number of added benefits that will further entice you to run out for your first bottle ASAP.
A Natural bodybuilder’s lifestyle is filled with positive energy, strength, endurance and most importantly longevity. CLA helps promote every aspect of this lifestyle. CLA has a number of effects on the health of the human body. We have discussed that fact that it reduces body fat and improves insulin sensitivity. But it also inhibits growth of prostate cancer, prevents development and spread of breast cancer, lowers cholesterol and triglyceride levels and has a very powerful antioxidant (prevention of cancer) effects on the entire body. It also has an effect on the body’s neurotransmitters that improves your mental clarity and overall focus. If you’re not in your car by now on the way to the health food store you should be.
