Platinum Pure CLA uses ultra pure conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). This fatty acid is naturally found in meat and dairy products, but cannot be produced in the body. Research suggests that CLA works by down regulating the TNF alpha catabolic signaling molecule in muscle, helping to prevent your body from breaking down lean muscle mass. Our CLA is made through a highly specialized process that converts the linoleic acid of safflowers into premium conjugated linoleic acid. What?s more, Platinum Pure CLA is completely free of stimulants and is an excellent addition to your musclebuilding stack. It?s also perfect for people following gluten free diets!
