Here are some questions we most frequently get asked about Tonalin® CLA. If you can't find the answer you need, just ask us!
CLA is conjugated linoleic acid, a fatty acid known to promote optimum body composition. Tonalin® CLA is derived by a proprietary process from natural safflower oil, a vegetarian source of linoleic acid. Tonalin® is the highest quality form of CLA on the market. It is a patented product, uniquely consistent in purity and quality.
CLA works in four ways:
Research shows Tonalin® CLA may promote other aspects of wellness. Benefits may include higher energy levels, an enhanced immune system and protection against catabolic effects of immune stimulation. Initial studies have also suggested that CLA may aid in the maintenance of blood glucose and insulin.
Everyone from athletes and bodybuilders to dieters or people who just want to stay healthy and fit can enjoy the benefits of Tonalin® CLA. The most effective approach is to supplement a healthy diet and exercise program with the recommended dosage.
The suggested daily intake is 3.0 grams of CLA daily. This dosage can be from dietary supplements or from functional foods fortified with Tonalin® CLA. A minimum dosage of 1.7 grams of CLA/day is needed to achieve body fat reduction. Tonalin® can be taken at any time of day, but it is suggested that the dietary supplement form be taken with meals. NOTE: Tonalin® CLA can have benefits without exercise. But it is more effective, and much more beneficial to your overall health, when combined with regular exercise and a healthy diet.
Tonalin® CLA has not been studied in conjunction with specific diets. However, studies show that Tonalin® CLA does enhance the results of an exercise regime, especially when combined with a balanced, healthy diet including plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
The oil inside most dietary supplement capsules is 100% vegetable sourced; however, most capsules are produced from bovine sources. If you wish to avoid gelatin capsules, Tonalin® is also available in a triglyceride form which can be taken by the spoonful. Tonalin® is also available in functional foods that may be vegetarian sourced.
No clinical studies have been performed on the interactions of Tonalin® CLA with prescription medications. Please consult your physician before taking this or any other dietary supplementation.
