Linoleic acid is one of many fatty acids that make up fat. Linoleic acid is not only one of the indispensable fatty acids for humans and animals, but also a substance that cannot be synthesized by humans and animals, and must be taken from food. Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is an isomer of linoleic acid. It is a series of positional and geometric isomers of linoleic acid with a double bond at the 9, 9, or 10 or 12 carbon positions. It is commonly found in humans. And nutrients in animals.
A large number of scientific studies have proven that conjugated linoleic acid has many important physiological functions such as anti-tumor, antioxidant, anti-atherosclerosis, immunity enhancement, bone density, and prevention and treatment of diabetes. Triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol can also reduce animal and human fats and increase muscle mass. Recently, more and more clinical research reports have proved that CLA’s excellent performance in weight control. If people who lose weight can cooperate with the use of CLA, they can effectively reduce the ratio of adipose tissue to lean tissue in the body, and truly reduce To fat, and increase the lean meat ratio, the benefit is that the more lean meat, the higher the metabolism capacity in the body, so a virtuous circle is formed, and the goal of weight loss will be easier to achieve.
At present, conjugated linoleic acid has been added to some weight-loss foods, which is a natural weight-loss product, it can also applied in beverage ingredients, cosmetics additives and health products.
