CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) is a form of the omega-6 essential fatty acid linoleic acid. Discovered in 1987 by Dr. Michael Pariza and colleagues at The University of Wisconsin Department of Nutritional Sciences, CLA is credited with many health benefits but was initially recognized for its ability to support normal, healthy cell growth. CLA is found in high concentrations in meat and dairy foods. Beef and dairy used to be our most significant source of CLA, but diets have changed over the past 20 years. We consume more low-fat and fat-free dairy as well as beef from cows that consume more grain than grass. These changes have drastically reduced the amount of CLA in our diet. Fortunately scientists developed a proprietary process to convert linoleic acid from pure safflower oil into CLA-making it easy to take advantage of CLA’s many health benefits.*
