Functions and Ingredients
CLA is a mixture of conjugated derivatives of linoleic acid from safflower oil. Conjugated linoleic acid is found mainly in meat and dairy foods; however it can also be found in certain vegetable oils. Its presence in human tissue comes not only from dietary sources, but also from the oxidation of linoleic acid in the body. Research of CLA’s metabolic activity has shown that it has the ability to modulate fat and energy metabolism, particularly control of body fat and muscle, as well as atherosclerosis. Research in several animal models has demonstrated that CLA reduces body fat accumulation. Some studies have shown that the reduction in body fat occurs regardless of whether the diet is high or low in fat. It appears that increased energy expenditure is responsible for the decreased fat accumulation. Researchers have observed an increase in fat oxidation, but not a decrease in the synthesis. CLA may increase energy expenditure and metabolic rate which is what may be responsible for its role in decreasing body fat stores. CLA’s antiobesity effects have also been suggested to involve an inhibition and/or apoptosis of (pre)adipocytes.
Green tea (Camellia sinensis) has been used for many centuries as a popular beverage worldwide. . Green and black tea are made from the same plant, with black tea being created by the oxidation of green tea leaves. The polyphenols contained in tea, often referred to as catechins, appear to provide the primary health promoting benefits associated with green tea. One such catechin, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), has many antioxidant properties, in addition to supporting the body’s normal response to inflammatory processes as well. Tea catechins also act as antimicrobial agents and as antioxidants. Green tea has been attributed to assist in weight loss, possible due to its diuretic and thermogenic effects. It may also increase calorie and fat metabolism.
True A.B.S. is a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support their weight control efforts and enhance fat loss.
