This Trans Fat Is Good For You

Aug 13, 2010


After all this talk of staying away from trans fats, and seeing the "no trans fats" on just about every food product I had to throw in an exception to the rule. Conjugated linoliac acid (CLA) is a naturally occurring trans fat found in nature that is healthy and that even helps burn fat. I supplement with it myself in times of competition. Unlike all other forms of unhealthy trans fats, this is a great trans fat (cis-9 trans-11) with tons of benefits including helping prevent cancer, heart disease and even promotes fat loss.

CLA is found mostly in grass fed beef, raw milk and eggs. A grass fed cow will have 300-500% more CLA then one fed grain and other mixtures so make sure to buy grass fed. CLA helps burn fat by inhibiting fat storage in adipocytes coupled with elevated b-oxidation in skeletal muscle. It can also be found in capsule form and is a great addition to any vegetarian diet.
