CLA is the most abundant polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) found in human tissues. Most of the CLA in the body is of dietary origin, obtained mainly from dairy and meat products. CLA is formed principally within the digestive tracts of ruminant animals, whilst human production of CLA does not occur to a significant degree. Changes in modern farming practice, particularly from grass fed to grain fed cattle, has resulted in large reductions in dietary levels of CLA in dairy and meat products.
What does Bio-CLA do? CLA is a component of cell membranes, and cell signaling pathways. The action of CLA is reliant on zinc, therefore supplementation of CLA is of no benefit if there is a zinc deficiency present.
