Tonalin/ Conjugated Linoleic Acid?

  1. Tonalin/ Conjugated Linoleic Acid?


    I was just curious if anyone knows if Conjugated Linoleic Acid is good supplement to take or not? If so, what are some of the benefits?


  2. It's a very subtle working supplement, very nice for cuts, works to promote recomposition. By definition, it's actually considered a trans fat. It's found in large quantities in whole milk and buffalo meat, among other sources.

    Some interesting studies:

  3. Does it matter when you take it? or does it need to be like post or pre workout?

  4. I used to spread my doses out, 1g 3/day for 3g/day which is what is usually the dose used in most studies.

  5. I started using this about 3 weeks ago at 6 caps a day. I believe it is working. My diet has been pretty good so the results are not only from the CLA.

    Like I said, it's subtle, but effective It definitely can't replace a good diet. Keep up the good work!

  7. CLA is supposed to also have some anti-oxidant action as well as some potential anti-carcinogenic actions. CLA is one of those items where after reading a review of lit, I was left asking myself why isn't it marketed as more than just a supplement for weight management.

    Probably because of the dosing size, really couldn't have an effective dose from unless your taking grams. I do think it's a very underrated supplement.

    Let me grab my RoL and see if I can find the dosing they were using in some of the studies.

    Edit: 2-6 grams/day
