CLA is a naturally occurring essential fatty acid found mainly in grass-fed dairy and meat products.
In prior generations, most people consumed meat and dairy products from grass-fed or pastured animals. The CLA in milk and meat from those sources is 3–5 times higher than grain-fed animals.With today’s agricultural practices, most livestock are not raised on pasture, but are fed grain instead, meaning that meat and dairy products contain lower levels of CLA. Even if you sought out foods from grass-fed or pastured animals, the amount of CLA needed for optimal weight management may still not be adequate.
For example, to obtain 3.2 g of dietary CLA, you would have to consume more than four gallons of ice cream, seven pounds of beef, or four gallons of milk every day! Not a good way to lose weight! Supplementing with trunature® Tonalin CLA is a much smarter and easier way to get an effective amount of CLA.
