I was wonering if anyone has ever taken Conjugated Linoleic Acid
(CLA) & had results from it? The best brand I heard was by Tonalin. Also I'm wondering if it has effects on anyone with thyroid dysfunction & synthroid medication. It apparently helps the body use fat for energy & also helps increase lean muslce mass. It is also listed as an anti-oxidant.
That's all I know about as well. It helps the body use the fat for energy while promoting lean mass. But it takes at least 4 weeks to work. I just not sure if it would intertfear with my thyroid. The pharmacist said no but my family doctor doesn't believe in these things or any supplements just calcium, vitamin c & a multi vitamin.
He doesn't even believe in Whey protein & has found studies proving creatine is bad for your kidneys in the long run believe it or not.
I went through a supplement phase about 6yrs ago. I must have wasted over $1k on crap that didn't even do what it was supposed to do & I learned from that. I tried almost everything from the Andro/Nor-Andro stacks to Vanadyl Sulfate. They were all garbage. The only thing that helped me was a good whey protein & a good glutamine. The creatine made me look like sh!t with all the water retention & my doc told me it was bad for your kidneys. So all I buy now are Whey protein, flax seed oil, & omega 3 as well as my glucosamine, calcium, vitamin c & multi-vitamin. I'm still looking into CLA.
