I received this note from Shawn Wells, of BioTrust Nutrition. ?I thought it is appropriate for our patients:
…?Today we need to talk to you about a rather uncomfortable truth:? the vast majority of good folks all around the world, perhaps just like you, are carrying a significant amount of excess weight around their mid-section.
Now, not only can this excess belly flab be demoralizing, carrying a devastating physical and emotional toll, but excess abdominal fat is even DEADLIER than you might imagine. In fact, research has shown this type of fat to possess more potentially fatal health risks than any other type of fat?a reality that could very well steal decades of your life well before its time?
The fortunate news, however, is that there is a brand new blend of exotic fatty acids that has been shown through research to help you flatten your belly and even AVOID fat storage to boot.? Fats that BURN fat?? Yes, it’s true, and we’ll tell you all about these unique fat-burning fats, along with the undeniable science supporting their waist-slimming power in the next few minutes, so be sure to keep reading…
The main fatty acid in this group is called conjugated linoleic acid, and while you probably haven?t heard of conjugated linoleic acid, it?s been around since the beginning of time as this ?super fat? is actually a healthy and naturally occurring fat found in beef and other dairy products such as yogurt, milk, butter, and cheese.
Beyond that, and of prime importance to today?s conversation, conjugated linoleic acid has been linked to an array of health benefits, most noteworthy being its unique ability to burn more belly fat than any other fat known to man…
Just how effective is conjugated linoleic acid at burning fat and slimming your waist?
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled human study (the gold standard of research design) published in the Journal of International Medical Research, 20 participants were either given conjugated linoleic acid or an imposter (in the form of vegetable oil) daily for 12 weeks.? At the end of the study period, the conjugated linoleic acid group lost 20% of their body fat while the placebo group lost no fat at all.
In another double-blind, placebo-controlled human study conducted by renowned Swedish researcher Dr. Annika Snedman, those receiving conjugated linoleic acid lost 400% more fat than the placebo group over the course of 12 weeks?and this was all done without any change in diet and without the implementation of a regular exercise program.
Want more evidence? There?s no shortage when it comes to the belly-fat-blasting effects of conjugated linoleic acid?
A third study conducted at the University of Barcelona, Spain measuring the effects of conjugated linoleic acid intake in 60 healthy men and women age 35 to 65 found that subjects receiving conjugated linoleic acid lost significant body fat (78% of which was from the belly region) while the placebo group actually GAINED weight…
A fourth double-blind, placebo-controlled human study published in theAmerican Journal of Clinical Nutrition with more than 175 total participants?resulted in the conjugated linoleic acid group losing 8.7% of their total body fat while the placebo group once again GAINED weight. Subjects were asked not to change their diet or exercise routines during the study, further validating the intake of conjugated linoleic acid as the only explanation for the vast difference in results between the two test groups.
And as if that wasn?t enough, yet another study performed by the leading research team at Upsalla University in Sweden and published in the prestigious International Journal of Obesity resulted in the conjugated linoleic acid group significantly reducing their abdominal girth in only 4 weeks, while the placebo group experienced no change in abdominal measurements whatsoever.
Now of course – BioTrust has a product that they recommend for CLA, but before you get that – we recommend you have your blood work tested. ?Since there are several other factors that can lead to excess belly fat.
