CLA and L-Carnitine Tartrate for Fat-Loss

Quote  |  Reply
Hey have any of you guys tried CLA and L-Carnitine for fat-loss? I'm thinking of trying both of them since lots of research back them up as good supplements for fat-loss in combination with healthy eating exercise of course.

"CLA has been shown to decrease body fat in many scientific studies to date. Therefore, when used in combination with a sensible diet and moderate exercise, this may result in safe and effective weight loss.

A number of studies in animals and humans indicate that CLA supplementation decreases body fat and increases lean muscle mass. The increase in lean muscle mass is most pronounced in individuals who are exercising regularly, which makes it an ideal aid for maintaining desirable weight after extra pounds have been lost. The impact of CLA on fat metabolism comes from its effect on the interaction between fat storage cells -adipocytes- with skeletal muscle, the principal site where fat is burned to meet the body's energy needs. CLA appears to reduce the adipocytes. At the same time, CLA enhances the breakdown of fat molecules in the skeletal muscle cells, and it may mitigate the breakdown of muscle tissue to provide energy. Thus, fat is burned at a higher rate, while muscle is both fueled and preserved, leading to a reduction in fat and an increase in lean muscle mass. CLA is a vegetable oil with a unique structure. Following digestion CLA is absorbed and metabolized by the body - as are all types of oils. Studies in animals and humans have shown that if the amount of CLA in the diet is increased this will result in an increase in the CLA levels in the body tissues.

Scientists now believe that CLA may have a unique effect on body fat by many means:

  • By blocking the transp
  • ort mechanism of fat into fat cells. This way the size of these fat cells is reduced, which may lead to an improved body shape.
  • By enhancing the activity of an enzyme present in the muscles. By stimulating this enzyme, it helps the body to burn more fat.
  • Fat cells in the body may remain smaller and do not mature. This reduces the level of fat in the body. "
