Does anyone here have protocols for the optimal use of CLA and ALA for athletes?

Is that necessary No23? explain your rationale…

Well I was skeptical at first but …
Give me a minute and I’ll get some literature for you Clemson - but there are reports of adding fat loss - or at least lean body maintainance.

Research in Louisiana State University
Mice & CLA for 12 weeks
Conclusion - “Supplementing CLA helps reduce body fat”

Journal of Nutrition - Scandinavian research - Br J Nutr 2000 May
Conclusion - “CLA showed significant reduction in body fat and increase in lean muscle”

Journal of Obesity Aug 2001
Conclusion - Reduces abdominal fat

There are others if you want I can chase more down.

Have you any experience of it?
