CLA - conjugated linoleic acid
Nov 9, 2000

There's been much noise in the news about CLA - a natural substance supposed to increase muscle and reduce fat in dieters. The implications for those suffering from lipodystrophy and muscle wasting are clear: another ingredient in the supplement cocktail. So, the question is, does it work?

Response from Dr. Fisher

All this stuff is anecdotal (word-of-mouth). I have not seen anything even nearly definitive regarding CLA.
