What can Tonalin® CLA do for me?
Laboratory research has indicated that Tonalin®™ CLA can help you achieve your diet goals in two ways: first, CLA increases lean muscle which naturally slims your body. Secondly, the added muscle tissue automatically burns more calories than fat tissue, which in turn increases your metabolism. The result is losing inches in the right places and dropping clothes sizes without the dreaded yo-yo effect of losing and regaining. Why? Because you’re reducing body fat not just water.
How does Tonalin® CLA work in the body?
Tonalin® CLA prevents fat from being deposited into the cells by speeding up the body’s fat metabolism. CLA also helps the body metabolize existing fat deposits. This fat then returns to the blood stream where it is used as energy by muscle cells and the liver.
What is Tonalin® CLA made of?
Tonalin® CLA is made through a proprietary process that converts the linoleic acid of safflowers into conjugated linoleic acid. Safflower is the richest source of linoleic acid. CLA in supplement form is necessary since it is exceedingly difficult to obtain an optimal level of CLA through diet alone.
Ruminate animals, like cows, have a special digestive system that converts linoleic acid into CLA. Normally we would receive CLA by eating beef and dairy foods. However, changes during the past 30 years in how cattle are raised (grain fed vs. grass fed) coupled with the trend toward low-fat dairy have drastically reduced the amount of CLA humans acquire through diet.
Is Tonalin® CLA safe?
Human safety and dose response trials proved Tonalin®® CLA is safe and efficacious. Numerous clinical studies have been conducted on the safety of CLA and no adverse side effects have been observed.
Unlike many supplements for weight loss, Tonalin® CLA DOES NOT contain any stimulants (contains NO Ephedra or Caffeine). In contrast, Tonalin® CLA is not only safe, its other and equally important health benefits make it a sound supplement choice for overall better health.
Do I take Tonalin® CLA with or without food?
Because Tonalin® CLA is delivered in the form of an oil, it is best if you take it with food.
How long before I should expect to see results?
Some people see results as soon as two weeks. Other people see results in about six weeks. What people typically notice before an earth-shattering decrease in weight, is that their clothing begins to fit more loosely. As people take Tonalin® CLA, especially when exercising, they begin to add lean muscle. This muscle is carried more naturally, so clothing fits more loosely. This is very encouraging when it begins to happen.
Are there any other health benefits of Tonalin®™ CLA?
Research shows Tonalin® CLA may now play an important role in helping reduce the incidence of breast cancer, helping improve asthma and allergy control, help control blood sugar levels (diabetes), and may help limit the extent of artherosclerosis which can lead to heart disease.
According to Delbert R. Dorscheid, M.D., Ph.D., a cancer and asthma researcher on faculty at the University of Chicago in Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, when a certain cell functions improperly this usually marks the beginning for the disease process. CLA alters the cellular signaling performed by certain fatty acid molecules, a pathway common to all cells.
CLA’s benefit to these cells and the disease process related to that cell’s function may be the alteration in this signaling pathway. For this reason, Dr. Dorscheid calls Tonalin® CLA a significant “health promoter.”
What do I look for when purchasing CLA?
The short version: Be sure it is 100% Safflower Oil as sunflower oil or a blend will probably be cheaper, but will cost in the long run as it will have less of the fat loss ingredients you are looking for.
Each capsule should have at least 1250mg of oil to get a total of 1000mg of actual CLA. This part is a little tricky, but read further and we’ll do our best to explain.
The long version… or Isn’t all CLA the same anyway?
Actually, no. CLA was originally made from sunflower oil. After it was discovered that Safflower Oil produced much more of the fat loss ingredient than sunflower oil, the companies that were concerned with the effectiveness of their product switched to using Safflower Oil.
Because sunflower oil is less expensive most companies still use it, even though it won’t produce the same results as Safflower Oil. So be sure you are getting 100% safflower oil in the product you buy.
To use the same product that was used in the clinical studies on fat loss, you need to purchase Tonalin® brand CLA. Shopping around and asking questions. You will find that most companies selling CLA don’t really know what’s in it.
In a collaborative study where a diet high in cholesterol was fed along with CLA to animals, the data suggested that CLA could help prevent atherosclerosis. By week 12, the LDL and total cholesterol and triglyceride counts were markedly lower in the blood of the animals fed CLA.
Other studies have indicated that CLA reduces plasma lipoproteins and early aortic atherosclerosis in the animal model. According to Dr. David Kritchevsky at the Wistar Institute, another significant finding is the apparent ability of CLA to reduce the severity of preinduced atherosclerosis lesions in the animal model.
Overall, CLA has considerable potential for the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis, and studies continue to reveal its potential health benefits.
