Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a modified form of the Omega-6 fatty acid, Linoleic Acid. The term CLA, refers to a mixture of fatty acids that have the general structure of linoleic acid. CLA is found naturally in the diet, the same as Linoleic Acid is, but the two are not to be considered the same thing. Linoleic acid is necessary for normal growth and development in human’s and is essential that we get it through our diet.
CLA has become very popular in the area of fat loss, in fact, it is one of the most popular weight loss supplements in the world. The reason for its popularity is its apparent ability to act on a specific receptor known as the Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptor (PPAR). PPAR is a family of molecular signalling receptors related to fat burning.
CLA is also understood to be involved in steroid signalling, glucose and lipid metabolism, as well as inflammation modulation.
CLA is naturally present, in comparatively small quantities, in fat-containing foods of ruminant origin, such as milk and dairy products.
