A recent Meta Study analyzing 18 studies with CLA for weight loss gives us the definitive guideline for using CLA.

The University of Wisconsin has published a study in the Journal Of Clinical Nutrition summarizing the research on CLA. Here is what you need to know.

CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) will help you use body fat.  The weight of evidence in favor of CLA for fat loss is clear.

You need to take a dose of 3.2 grams per day in order for it to work effectively. It will work pretty consistently for 6 months and finally taper off at 2 years.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid refers to a family of molecules from Linoleic Acid. There are over a dozen different molecules in this family. The two that are involved in fat loss are called the CIS 10, and CIS12 isomers.
