CLA is another “OLD” supplement.  It probably has been around for over 10 years.  I believe the first branded CLA was called Tonalin.  You can still buy it today as it is widely sold.  CLA is mostly used as a fat loss supplement.  However if you have ever taken the product you will agree with me that the results are disappointing.  If you think you are going to lose 10, 5, 3, or even 1 pound of fat good luck, you wont!  But that does not stop supplement companies from selling it.  Myself, I do not recommend CLA for fat loss.  I pointed out about 10 other supplements I would rather use to support my weight loss goals than CLA.  Read about them here.

However if you still want to use CLA you have to be aware of three things.

1) the dose:  You need at least 3 grams in divided dosages through out the day.

2) you should only buy TONALIN CLA

3) you should never buy it as a blend with other ingredients. only buy by itself

4) you can use CLA with weight gainers as well.



Remember I’m a supplement expert with over 15 years experience in buying and manufacturing supplements.  Anyone can recommend a supplement but isnt the next question always, “What BRAND is the best?”.  Well that is the problem.  You have sites like that tell you about the ingredients but stop there.  That is pretty much worthless because you have no clue what to BRAND to BUY after that.  So you’re left with searching forums and asking self-proclaimed experts or looking at reviews that most of the time are biased.  The real answer is to ask an expert like myself.  Asking questions on a forums only gets you amateur consumer responses which is quite frankly a ridiculous way to take a recommendation with something you’re putting into your body. But you’re in luck because I am a REAL supplement expert.  I have over 10 years dealing with FDA lawyers, manufacturing consultants, employing dietary supplement experts, knowledge of the Code of Federal Regulations 111’s for dietary supplements, and much more!  I am a qualified supplement expert manufacturer, not just a science guy.  I am the real deal when it comes to recommending quality supplements because I take it a step further and recommend a brand and give you the reason(s) why!
