CLA+ is an essential fatty acid, which means that our body cannot synthesize it and must therefore be taken via our diet or as a supplement. CLA has many functions, observed on experimental models.
According to numerous studies, in the animal, its supplementation can determine a reduction of the fat mass in favour of the muscle mass. This would happen reducing the processes that make up the fat mass, such as lipogenesis. This way, the mortality of the cells of the adipose tissue, and therefore of the fat mass, increases. Moreover, calorie consumption increases, as thermogenesis increases as well, which is the quantity of heat necessary to burn calories, promoting slimming. It has been verified that its effect is greater if it is taken during training, while during a sedentary period the effect is minimal.
CLA has also other important functions, such as maintaining the cell membranes intact, takes part in synthesizing some cells involved in coagulation and inflammatory response, and promotes muscle growth. It seems to have anticarcinogenic, antithrombotic and antidiabetic properties too.
Important is also its protective action of the cardio-circulatory system. If taken for a long time, it has shown that it interferes with the LDL and HDL cholesterol levels.
Finally, it seems to be able to regulate the quantity of immunoglobulins (antibodies) that cause the allergic response, playing an anti-allergic action.
