Study shows CLA may reduce body fat in overweight children

April 7, 2010

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that Clarinol CLA may reduce body fat mass in six to 10 year-old children who were overweight or obese, using chocolate milk with CLA for 6 months.

The population consisted of 53 children who were overweight or obese and was randomized into two groups: a CLA group (n = 28) and a placebo group (n = 25). They were provided one chocolate milk with either 3 g Clarinol CLA or placebo oil per serving once a day for six months. The children consuming the chocolate milk with Clarinol CLA showed a significant decrease in body fat and an increase in lean mass when compared to the placebo group. The children in the CLA group also showed a positive effect on the BMI. The blood parameters in both groups stayed within the normal range.
