Pure Advantage CLA
Thyroid Support Supplement
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is an omega-6 essential fatty acid.
Omega-6 EFA’s are essential to human health but cannot be made in the body.
For this reason, they must be obtained from food.
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.
CLA has been the subject of a variety of research on the past several years.
Findings also suggest that some of the other benefits of CLA include the following:
Increases metabolic rate* -- This would obviously be a positive benefit for thyroid patients, as hypothyroidism -- even when treated -- can reduce the metabolic rate in some people.
Decreases abdominal fat* -- Adrenal imbalances and hormonal shifts that are common in thyroid patients frequently cause rapid accumulation of abdominal fat, so this benefit could be quite helpful.
Enhances muscle growth* -- Muscle burns fat, which also contributes to increased metabolism, which is useful in weight loss and management.
Lowers cholesterol and triglycerides* -- Since many thyroid patients have elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels, even with treatment, this benefit can have an impact on a thyroid patient's health.
Lowers insulin resistance* -- Insulin resistance is a risk for some hypothyroid patients, and lowering it can also help prevent adult-onset diabetes and make it easier to control weight.
Reduces food-induced allergic reactions* -- Since food allergies can be at play when weight loss becomes difficult, this can be of help to thyroid patients
