CLA: The Simple and Effective Way To Lose Weight?

CLA from safflower Axis Labs simple solution to weight loss

When it comes to bodybuilding, or even just living a healthier life, we’re all focused on losing weight, cutting fat, and building muscle. It’s natural to focus on these elements, as they provide that lean, cut appearance that helps us look good and feel better. But even with diet and exercise, sometimes our body needs a little help to lose that extra weight. That’s why Axis Labs has researched fat loss supplements and nutrients for years before we developed our amazing CLA product. By utilizing the natural properties of conjugated linoleic acid, our CLA softgels can help you blast fat and lose weight.

What Is Conjugated Linoleic Acid?

CLA is a form of fatty acid that is naturally found in beef and dairy products. Linoleic acid is a very common form of omega-6 fatty acid that can be found in a variety of foods, including vegetables and meat. This nutrient is formed naturally as animals graze, and then stored in the animal’s muscles and milk. While CLA is a type of polyunsaturated fatty acid, it is technically a trans fat, but because it is a naturally occurring trans fat, found in many healthy foods, it’s not a bad trans fat like the many industrial trans fats that are found in prepackaged or fast foods.

CLA And Fat Loss

When it comes to losing weight and flushing fat out of your body, CLA has been shown to have great potential. It is a rigorously examined supplement, and many studies now suggest that it can result in significant fat loss, as well as improve body composition. In some cases, this results in a reduction in the amount of body fat and an increase in muscle mass. Studies have often found that incorporating CLA into a diet can burn excess fat and decrease the formation of fat deposits which leads to weight loss.

Including CLA In Your Diet

When paired with a healthy diet and regular exercise, CLA has been found to have promising results in reducing fat mass in targeted areas like hips, legs, and waist. As an added benefit, CLA has shown to improve muscle mass. Together, these effects allow individuals to exercise more effectively, as they are in better shape.

Why You Should Use Stimulant-Free Weight Loss Products

Many fat loss supplements rely on stimulants like caffeine to jump start your body and burn fat by providing it extra energy. While this tactic might work for some, it doesn’t work for everyone, and indeed, it comes with a suite of issues that make stimulant-based fat loss supplements less effective. In some cases, including stimulants in a fat loss product may actually have a negative impact on the individual using them. Stimulants of any kind may affect those who live with sleep issues like insomnia. A lack of sleep has been linked to increased weight gain. This is likely because sleep impacts ghrelin and leptin, the hormones that regulate hunger. Those who don’t get enough sleep augment their lack of energy by consuming more calories. Similarly, those who don’t sleep enough are too tired to exercise and gain weight as a result.


Stimulant-based fat loss pills also leave you vulnerable to the dreaded “crash.” We’ve all put back that big cup of coffee in the morning to perk us up and help us crush that office work. But by 2:00 p.m. we’re yawning harder than when we got up. That’s because stimulant fat burners work by releasing a burst of energy throughout the day, replacing the need for you to get your energy from food. While you might find yourself ripping through the day without feeling hungry, when that fat burner wears off, you’ll crash hard, resulting in low energy that keeps you from hitting the gym. Axis Labs’ CLA is stimulant free, meaning that you’ll enjoy the weight loss benefits of our softgels, without that unwanted crashing sensation during the day, or right before your next work out.
