What is Bio-C.L.A.?
Bio-C.L.A. are soft gelatin capsules with conjugated linoleic acid (T10,C12 & C9,T11) in the form of easily absorbable free fatty acids.
What is CLA?
CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) is a naturally occurring, polyunsaturated fatty acid found in the meat of ruminants (cows, sheep, etc.) and dairy from these animals. CLA is also a natural part of our diet. it is formed in the rumen of grazing cattle in a process where linoleic acid from grass is transformed into CLA. Some of the best sources of CLA are beef and dairy products like milk, cheese, and yoghurt. CLA is a GRAS-certified (Generally Recognized as Safe) food additive.
What is free fatty acids?
In our diet fat occur as triglycerides that must be broken down to “free” fatty acids before the digestive tract is able to absorb them. This process is enabled by a digestive enzyme called lipase. Bio-C.L.A. contains conjugated linoleic acid in the form of free fatty acids that have already been broken down and are ready for use. The advantage with this type fatty acids is that they can be absorbed directly even by individuals with impaired lipid absorption.
CLA is a natural part of our diet, and the meat and dairy industries have considered adding CLA to certain foods as a way of restoring the natural CLA content at levels, which one could find in those days where nearly all cattle went free-range and got sufficient linoleic acid from grazing.
