For many people, Clarinol™ CLA - produced by Lipid Nutrition, is an important part of their daily health and well-being regime. As part of a balanced diet and exercise program, Clarinol™ CLA has been proven to play a role unequalled by any other ingredient in the market today in helping to reduce body fat, improve body composition and increase lean muscle mass. Clarinol™ CLA is available in both liquid and powder form, offering even more ways to integrate the weight management benefits of CLA into dietary supplements and food products, providing manufacturers with great new market opportunities. Clarinol™ CLA contains the highest concentration of the two active CLA isomers, c9,t11 and t10,c12, that have been identified as being helpful in: Reducing the amount of body fat Increasing lean muscle mass Additionally, Clarinol™ CLA has also been shown to reduce the side effects from a low calorie diet, such as skin rashes, irritability, depression, and hair loss. Clarinol™ products are made from natural safflower oil. Due to the unique manufacturing method the inclusion of isomers other than c9,t11 and t10,c12 is suppressed. Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) with the highest available concentration of these two active isomers is thus obtained. Clarinol™ is available in three forms. The free fatty acid form offers the basic CLA benefits. Triglyceride CLA delivers the well-known benefits, along with better taste and easier digestibility. The third form is Lipid Nutrition's innovative Clarinol™ Powder. Specifically formulated with triglyceride CLA, it allows fortification of taste-sensitive consumer foods and beverages. Beneficial effects on body fat mass Several studies have demonstrated that CLA can positively affect body mass In non-obese and overweight people, CLA reduced body fat mass and body weight. It has been shown that CLA prevents fat from being deposited into the cells. It appears that CLA reduces the activity of lipoprotein lipase, an enzyme that is needed for fat cells to take up fats from the bloodstream. The storage of fat is therefore reduced, leading to significant reductions in fat mass.
