CLA for FAT LOSS, BUT CAUSES FATTY LIVER?

  1. CLA for FAT LOSS, BUT CAUSES FATTY LIVER?


    had been taking CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) for fat loss and many other benefits and just read that it can cause fat to accumulate in the liver while your abdominal fat decreases. Anyone have more info or experience on this?

    Recent literature suggests that CLA is just as unhealthy for you as other trans-fatty acids.

  5. At moderate to low doses, CLA is safe. Dont go overboard with it..

  6. Never rely on a secondary source; ever moreso when it's written on a meta-study.

    the whole ihealth thing is based off two conflicting papers - one in mice and another in rats. Neither included work in a human model or trial. Both species of rodent responded differently - the rats saw improved insulin sensitivity and lower liver fat while the mice responded oppositely.

    There is evidence from Belury 2003 that CLA improves insulin sensitivity in humans, which in turn relates to body mass. This would imply that the rat model is more inline with human data.

    The point? Not all species necessarily react identically to a given substance, and there is good support for the correlation of moderate CLA to insulin sensitivity and body mass.
