What is Tonalin® CLA?

Tonalin® provides

  • The most fully researched of all CLAs
  • The most proven health and nutrition benefits

How Tonalin® works

When you consume fat that your body does not need to use for energy, it is absorbed by fat cells with the help of an enzyme called lipoprotein lipase. CLA blocks this enzyme and diverts unused fat to your muscle cells. The CLA then activates another enzyme which helps your muscle to burn this fat, especially during exercise.

That’s why, when used in balance with a healthy diet and regular exercise program, Tonalin® CLA is so effective in helping you lose body fat, and keep it off.

Because it is so effective, Tonalin® CLA can also help eliminate the unhealthy “yo-yoing” pattern of losing and gaining weight. Clinical studies have proven that Tonalin® can prevent fat regain.

Research behind Tonalin®

Tonalin® is the world’s most carefully researched CLA, with currently 18 major studies proving its safety and effectiveness. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration has recognized Tonalin® as FDA GRAS, which means it has passed their highest safety standards for a food ingredient. That’s why Tonalin® CLA is the brand that’s trusted by healthcare professionals.

The clinical studies have shown that Tonalin® CLA reduces body fat in four ways:

  • Decreases the amount of fat your body stores after eating
  • Increases the rate of fat break-down
  • Increases the rate of fat metabolism
  • Decreases the total number of fat cells

Clinically tested Tonalin® CLA is the highest quality way to supply the CLA that your body is missing, and a healthy way to help achieve your fitness goals.

Examples of clinical studies

1. Journal of International Medical Research

Conjugated linoleic Acid reduces body fat in healthy, exercising humans.

Research: Volunteers received either CLA or a placebo for three months, and were asked not to make any other changes in their diet and lifestyle for the duration of the study.

Results: The CLA group had a significant reduction in body fat percent from 21.3% to 17.0%, and a modest reduction in body weight (from 153.1 lbs to 151.6 lbs).

2. International Journal of Obesity

Conjugated linoleic Acid reduces abdominal fat in overweight adults.

Research: Volunteers received either CLA or a placebo for four weeks, and did not make any other changes in their diet and lifestyle during the study.

Results: The CLA group had a significant decrease in abdominal diameter, an average of one inch from their waistline.

3. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition

Conjugated linoleic acid supplementation for 1 year reduces body fat mass in healthy overweight humans.

Research: Overweight volunteers received CLA each day over a one-year period; control group received a placebo each day.

Results: At the study’s conclusion, average body fat mass in the CLA groups was 6.9% – 8.7% lower than that in the placebo-control group. Long-term supplementation with CLA was shown to reduce body fat mass in healthy, overweight adults.

4. Journal of Nutrition

Conjugated Linoleic Acid for 24 months is very well tolerated by and reduces body fat mass in healthy overweight humans.

Research: In a follow-up of a 12 month placebo-controlled study, moderately overweight volunteers received CLA each day.

Results: Subjects who lost body fat mass in first year of the study maintained their body reduction, and subjects who previously had received placebo and were switched to CLA, then also showed significant reduction in body fat mass. Leptin levels decreased over the whole period of supplementation by more than 20%.

5. British Journal of Nutrition

Tonalin Conjugated linoleic Acid in milk reduces body fat mass significantly.

Why Tonalin® CLA?

Getting the right amount of CLA in your diet is difficult. Beef and dairy foods were once a good source. However, during the past 30 years changes in how cattle are raised (grain fed vs. grass fed), combined with the trend toward low-fat dairy, have greatly reduced the amount of CLA we get through our normal diets.

Today, the recommended daily dose of CLA is 3.0 grams, for maximum effectiveness. To achieve that level in your diet, you would have to consume more than 4 gallons of ice cream, seven pounds of beef, or almost 4 gallons of whole milk every day!

Therefore, to retain effective amount of CLA, you need to take a dietary supplement or consume functional foods fortified with Tonalin® CLA.

Tonalin® CLA can help you:

  • Decrease the amount of fat your body stores
  • Maintain lean muscle mass by burning calories more efficiently
  • Prevent fat cells from refilling, so you remain toned and lean

Your diet, health and fitness

For maximum results you should take diet, health and fitness into consideration. Your fitness plan should include cardiovascular, weight training and stretching to strengthen and tone your body, along with balanced nutrition.

Customize your fitness plan to your individual needs and interests. Be sure to consult your doctor before starting any new exercise program.

SONTAL Tonalin® CLA offers you safe, natural and effective body shaping.

Pharmacological classification

Western Complementary Medicine.

Pharmacological action

The term conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) describes a group of conjugated, octadecadieonic acid isomers of linoleic acid.The two isomers with known biological activity are cis-9,trans-11 linoleic acid and trans-10,cis-12 linoleic acid, providing 50:50 ratios of the two isomers.

Evidence suggests that the cis-9,trans-11 and trans-10,cis-12 isomers of CLA exert different effects within the body when taken individually and together. Beneficial body composition changes have been associated primarily with trans-10,cis-12 CLA in vitro and animal studies. In vitro and animal studies have also shown that trans-10,cis-12 CLA reduced adipocyte lipid filling, increased lipolysis, and decreased lipoprotein lipase activity. The mechanism of action has been well studied: if fat consumed is not used for energy, the triglycerides are taken up by fat cells – a mechanism for which the enzyme lipoprotein lipase is responsible.

CLA inhibits this enzyme, and instead the triglycerides are diverted to the muscle cells to be burnt. Here the CLA induces the activity of another enzyme, carnitine palmitoyl transferase, which is responsible for oxidation and the burning of fat.
