SO many questions I get from readers and clients surround supplements. What to take, when to take them, how much, how long? You should ALWAYS get advice from a knowledgeable source and usually one who practices what they preach. (people who are fit, people who lift :) )
Conjugated linoleic acid is a naturally occurring fatty acid (found in dairy and red meats) and is known to help reduce body fat deposits, boost metabolism and improve overall immune function. If you ask someone at a nutrition store, they will tell you it will help you "tone." In COMBINATION with weight training, CLA is a gem for lean muscle gain and fat loss, I take it at night and right away in the morning for the best results.
