    EAS CLA side effects

    Hello

    From the moment i started taking CLA capsules...around 5-6 grams per day.. I got gastrointestinal bloating....I also had to go to Hospital during my vacation in Vienna and the doctor diagnosed that I was extremely full of gas.(hell i was bloated with so little food)
    Does anyone know if bloating is a CLA side effect to some people?

    Thanks

    3 grams of CLA per day should be sufficient IMO.

    Regarding my previous post....
    I found this post in a forum..

    http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/ar.../t-122042.html

    It seems that people had gastrointestinal problems with CLA...and if you do some google research you can find some side effects like this in some studies........

    Well....I also have a bottle of NOW FOODS CLA.....gonna skip the EAS (not many left)....i will try reintroducing again by having this one hour before meal and not with the meal like i used to......and 3.5 grams instead of 6

    i hope i do not get the same gassy problems......destroyed my vacations...



    note: some manufactures state 'preferably with meals' , some others ...one hour before meal......

    cheers

    well
    i do not know if you care at all but I would like to let you know that,
    only by taking 2 CLA pills for 3 days , I felt slight gases and bloated and slight indigestion most of the time....and this by taking a new brand of CLA (Primaforce).
    As soon as I stopped it there was a huge relief the next day...

    I probably have an allergy at it........If people have similar effects just be aware of this
