Pharma Nord Bio-CLA: Bio-CLA contains the fatty acid Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA). Scientific studies suggest that CLA may help fat loss, maintain weight loss and retain lean muscle mass. Research suggests that is can increase the production of prostaglandins, the fatty acid molecules linked to elevated synthesis of growth hormone.
In athletes, increased growth hormone levels are helpful in promoting enhanced muscle growth and strength. Some prostaglandins can increase blood circulation to the muscles and adipose tissue; this can improve muscle function and fat mobilisation.
CLA is the most abundant polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) in human tissues. CLA can occur in several chemical variants (known as isomers); Bio-CLA is a dietary supplement containing the two isomers of CLA which are known to be the most biologically active within the human body. CLA is an important component of cell membranes. CLA helps maintain normal immune function, being a precursor of the hormone-like prostanoids, which have an important role in the immune/inflammatory response.
CLA levels in food are reduced by modern farming methods and food processing; modern diets with a high fast food content tend to have high levels of potentially harmful saturated fats, and are frequently lacking in beneficial PUFAs.
