Tonalin CLA Supplements: Information

Tonalin is a trademarked brand of CLA. CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is an omega 6 fatty acid found in small amounts in foods such as milk, cheese and red meat. Some research has shown fat-loss and lean body mass enhancement effects from CLA and this has formed the basis for CLA's use as a dietary supplement.1

Tonalin CLA's Health Benefits

Tonalin CLA is used primarily by those who want to decrease body fat and increase or preserve lean body mass. Tonalin CLA's mechanism of action is incompletely understood. One possibility is that Tonalin increases sensitivity to insulin, making the metabolism much more efficient. Another is that Tonalin CLA may affect the liver enzymes that regulate fat-storage and fat-burning in a way that promotes the reduction of body fat. Tonalin CLA is a good choice for dieters trying to avoid stimulant-based fat burners.

Using Tonalin CLA Supplements

To get the best results from CLA, take it on a consistent daily basis for 8-12 weeks or longer. The best dose for fat loss is 3.4 grams per day or more. That works out to 5 typical CLA softgels, which provide around 75% CLA per 1000 mgs of oil, usually safflower oil. Tonalin CLA can be taken all at once or in divided doses. Review the label of your Tonalin CLA product for the amount of CLA it supplies per capsule.
