I don't remember where i read this so maybe someone could tell me if its true and supply me with some viable source of info on it. I recall reading that someone was using 2-3 grams of gla at bedtime as a nonstimulant fatburner. How would this be effective and has anyone given it a try.
thanks in advance for your responses!
I have tried cla at high dosages with no success, also i remember reading at avantlabs that it causes insulin sensitivity issues.
thanks for your response anyways.
anyone else with any info on the GLA.
I've heard of people using GLA/R-ALA in a kind of anarchy stack actually. I think Fonz talks about this on another board.
Also, I found that CLA helps more in keeping off new fat while gaining... I don't know if it's really a fat burner though. I used 4-5g with larger meals, so the daily dosage was sometimes around 12-15.
I can't really warrent spending that much money for a little fat prevention on cla.
as for fonz, from what i have read at a few boards the general concenses is he is a shady bastard. has anyone else heard of any one using gla
as always thanks to all those that reply
I'll send you a PM. The (old) comments from that board say to take 2-3g GLA solo at bedtime, and that it's a non-stimulative thermogenic.
(this leads to a) reduction in PGE2 levels, therefore shifting the prostaglandin spectrum to the PGF2A side, ultimately boostin lipolysis NON-STIMULATIVELY.
It will also lower Blood Glucose levels slightly(not like R-ALA so you don't get hypo), therefore lowering insulin and increasing FFA breakdown and burning(My opinion is that this is a direct consequence of BAT thermogenesis caused by the pGF2A).
Also, remember that prostaglandins are always produced at a 1:1 ratio, so by reducing PGE2 via GLA you increase overral PGF2A:total prostaglandin level differential.
Its not much.....maybe 3-4% increase in BMR but it makes a BIG difference when you're sub 10% BF and trying to drop further
down ther BF ladder.
