Isomer-specific effects of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) on adiposity and lipid metabolism.

Abstract

Isomers of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), unsaturated fatty acids found in ruminant meats and dairy products, have been shown to reduce adiposity and alter lipid metabolism in animal, human, and cell culture studies. In particular, dietary CLA decreases body fat and increases lean body mass in certain rodents, chickens, and pigs, depending on the isomer… (More)
