When COVID-19 first hit, nearly every American was stuck in their house under quarantine. Because of this, most people fell off of their typical diets or exercise routines and gained some extra unwanted weight. While things are starting to open back up in most states, it still may be a struggle to gain back your motivation and lose the Quarantine 15. Supporting your body with proven supplements such as CLA can boost your ability to lose weight and strengthen muscle.
What Is CLA?
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a naturally occurring fatty acid found in meat and dairy products. Because the human body can’t produce CLA, we can only get it through our diet or supplements in order to reap the benefits. It is also a popular dietary supplement that is sold with claims of helping people lose fat, maintain weight loss, and retain lean muscle mass.
Benefits of CLA
Supplementing your diet and exercise program with CLA daily has been clinically proven to improve body composition. It has been scientifically shown to improve lean muscle tone, enhance diet, and support metabolism. Atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, is when plaque builds up in the arteries. This is a risk factor for heart disease. One 2018 study on obese mice suggested that taking CLA supplements could protect against atherosclerosis. Additionally, individuals who get a lot of CLA from foods or take CLA supplements are at a lower risk of various diseases, including type 2 diabetes and cancer.
