What is conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)?
CLA of HSN Essentials is a nutritional supplement made of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA). This is a type of essential fatty acid that the human body naturally synthesises in very little amounts.
Ruminant animals synthesize this type of fatty acid considerably, hence their fat and especially their milk are a rich source of CLA.
Note that the name of 'conjugated fatty acids' refers to various types of isomers depending on their structure, such as the cis-9, 11, which are the most abundant form in nature, and trans-10, cis -12, which they are usually found in nutritional supplements.
CLA encourages the body to use fat, enhancing fat loss within a low-calorie frame.
This action is enhanced by this fatty acid properties: CLA can block the uptake of fat by fat cells (adipocytes) by inhibiting the LPL enzyme (Lipoprotein Liapsa), and also promotes lipolysis (fat destruction).
To enhance the CLA benefits is advisable to establish healthy habits in terms of sport and nutrition.
