I googled this just the other day for CLA 'cause I was curious...Here is a wikipedia answer:
Most studies of CLAs have used a mixture of isomers wherein the isomers c9, t11-CLA and t10, c12-CLA were the most abundant ones.
Conjugated linoleic acid is both a trans fatty acid and a cis fatty acid. The cis bond causes a lower melting point and ostensibly also the observed beneficial health effects. Unlike other trans fatty acids, it is not harmful, but beneficial. CLA is conjugated, and in the United States, trans linkages in a conjugated system are not counted as trans fats for the purposes of nutritional regulations and labeling. CLA and some trans isomers of oleic acid are produced by microorganisms in the rumens of ruminants. Non-ruminants, including humans, produce certain isomers of CLA from trans isomers of oleic acid, such as vaccenic acid, which is converted to CLA by delta-9-desaturase.

So, it's a trans fatty acid? Heh, weird. It seems as everyone thinks trans fats are the devil. Apparently not all the time.

trans and cis are just a description of the double bonds.

cla is an omega-6 polyunsaturated fat.
the 'trans' is only referring to the molecular structure.

Now that is something a simple person like me can understand.

This is my interpretation (for me at least at 170):
8-10 Nutraplanet CLA Supreme Caps
10 Nutraplanet Omega-3 Caps
6 Sesamin Caps
That seem about right?

Oh, and sesamin can't be considered a poly or mono fat?

So the lignan containing oil is a mono fat?

half poly half mono

I have been experiencing some discomfort from the cla. It seems that my first dose is fine at two pills, but after taking my second dose I feel sick. My apetite is suppressed and I feel really grossed out and generally disinterested with food.
Does this happen often?

Problem is, my girlfriend accidentally double dosed CLA and experienced the same effects.

are you taking it with or without food?

Hmmm I've taken if without food before and just noticed some heart burn but not sick really
