Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) patients are frequently unable to exercise due to a high level of discomfort and pain. Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is an excellent supplement to help reduce fat stores that have accumulated for those with an inactive lifestyle.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid, CLA, a substance not produced naturally by the human body, is an effective modulator of metabolism, reducing body fat and increasing muscle mass. CLA’s activity as a potent metabolic modulator was first recognized in studies of its anticarcinogenic properties. CLA may be one of the most potent cancer-fighting substances in our diet. In studies, CLA in the diet has reduced tumor burden by more than 50 percent.
Research has now expanded to include its ability to modulate lipid and energy metabolism, particularly control of body fat and muscle, as well as atherosclerosis. CLA has been shown to reduce body fat and body fat accumulation in people who are overweight. Studies have shown that the reduction in body fat occurs regardless of whether the diet is high or low in fat. Increased energy expenditure is responsible for the decreased fat accumulation.
A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, published in the December 2000 issue of the Journal of Nutrition found that CLA reduces fat and preserves muscle tissue. In the study, an average reduction of six pounds of body fat was found in the group that took CLA, compared to the placebo group.
For Fibromyalgia and CFS patients, CLA is an excellent supplement to reduce fat stores that have accumulated during inabilities to exercise and stay active without pain.
