In this section I would like to introduce conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). I recently stumbled upon this item when browsing through the supplement store and thought I would share with you what this product can bring to the table. As some of you know, when you consume fat that is not used for energy it is absorbed by other fat cells by an enzyme called lipoprotein lipase. What CLA does is block this enzyme from occurring and diverts the unused fat into your muscle cells.
Conjugated linoleic acid also activates another enzyme that helps you naturally burn fat, especially during exercise. When this product is used in correlation with a healthy diet and regular exercise regiment, it will lower your body fat and maintain this drop. Another benefit of CLA is that it prevents the fluctuation of fat regain if you lose focus on your diet for a few days or weeks. So if you are looking for a healthy way to kick start your process to a lower body fat percentage, CLA can help you.
