AST Sports Science CLA 1000 | Conjugated Linoleic Acid
CLA - Conjugated Linoleic Acid - is not a new discovery as some magazines would have you believe. However, better understandings of its effects are leading to potential applications that are extremely new and exciting. AST Sports Science was the first company to report on CLA's possible benefits to the athlete over two years ago, and recent studies are backing up our predictions.
CLA was discovered by accident in 1978 by Michael W. Pariza at the University of Wisconsin while looking for mutagen formations in meat during cooking. CLA, found naturally in many animal products, consists of positional and geometric isomers of linoleic acid. The difference between the two centers around CLA,s conjugated double bonds at carbon atoms 10 and 12 or 9 and 11. The 9 cis, 11 trans isomer is considered the most biologically active form of CLA.
