A meta analysis study in 2007 showed that ingesting 3.2gm/day of CLA resulted in fat loss of 1lb in 5 weeks.
A previous double blind, placebo controlled study in using humans found an inverse correlation between levels of plasma CLA and leptin, and plasma levels of CLA and body weight. Leptin is a hormone released by fat cells that go up when the fat cells sense starvation, increasing the appetite. These results mean that the higher levels of CLA supplementation, the lower the levels of leptin and body weight.
Kangaroo meat has the highest concentration of CLA, but food products from grass fed ruminants, such as sheep and cows are also good sources. Grass fed animals can produce 300-500 % more CLA than those fed half hay and half grains.
Metabolics Conjugated Linoleic Acid is from safflower containing the isomers 9, 10, 11 and 12.
