CLA POWDER

CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) from THE PROTEIN WORKS™ is a special kind of fatty acid that’s been shown to aid fat loss by interfering with a substance in the body called lipoprotein lipase which is mainly responsible for storing fat. It's also been found to help the body use existing stored fat as energy.


Unlike most thermogenics on the market that speed up the metabolism, CLA helps promote muscle mass whilst simultaneously attacking fat stores. As a result, CLA is one of the most popular supplements for those looking to reduce their body fat.



  • Helps promote fat loss

  • Can improve muscle to fat ratio

  • Excellent source of Omega 6

CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) is a naturally occurring free fatty acid which is found in small amounts mainly in dairy and meat products. It’s become one of the most widely researched fat loss ingredients in recent years due to its ability to favourable interfere with the enzyme called lipoprotein lipase which in turn restricts the fat cells from getting any bigger. This coupled with the research that shows it can increase the amount of stored fat the body is able to use as energy has meant CLA has become one of the most widely used fat loss supplements in sports nutrition.

Secondly and perhaps most interestingly for athletes wanting to maintain lean muscle whilst lowering their body fat, some studies on CLA supplementation found that subjects actually increased muscle mass whilst at the same time lowering their body fat. This has meant CLA is often taken by those who don’t want to just lose weight but rather than want to change their body composition (i.e. lowering body fat and increase lean muscle).

The Expert's View of CLA

"The fat loss properties of CLA have proved so effective that researchers from I-Shou University in China have been investigating it as a potential treatment for obesity. The study, led by Chih-Kun Huang, took 63 subjects and gave them either 3.4 grams of CLA or a placebo. Following 12 weeks they concluded 'the consumption of CLA (3.4 grams per day) significantly decreased the body weight, BMI, body fat mass, fat percentage, subcutaneous fat mass and the waist-to-hip ratio in subjects.' These results from the I-Shou University study seem to also be supported by those at Uppsala University in Sweden where it was discovered healthy, young subjects taking 4.2 grams of CLA a day displayed a 3.8% decrease in body fat compared with individuals not taking the supplement."

After reading the reviews, I was unsure about whether or not I would regret buying the powder. I do have to agree with the below reviews, the taste is quite overpowering - kind of like plastic? But I was able to drink my shake without it really being that awful as I mixed it in with my flavoured protein shake. I'd reccomend that you have a large drink afterwards to stop the powder repeating on you afterwards!
This was my first shake with it in, so i'll report back with results!
I ignored the other reviews on this product and thought it couldn't possibly taste too bad. Actually it was even worse than expected added to a protein shake I couldn't get past the first sip. Taste way too overpowering .Possibly could work better with super green. Given 4 stars as the supplement itself is fantastic if you can get past the taste.,although I will stick to TPW CLA capsules as they really easier to consume. 110% for customer service yet again, no quibbles return and help!
Although not tasty on its own I add mine to super greens and can't taste it! getting good results from it too

It taste disgusting but actually works, really good, and recommend taking it with either a juice or a flavoured liquid to take away the taste of it.
Really effective product when used properly and alongside your training , would not be withiout it.
Staple product in my cupboard, good value from a very reputable company
Whack it in some juice and in it goes, I stack this with some isolate and get good results.
After reading the previous reviews i was wondering why i ordered this, but don't know what all the fuss is about Lol . Granted it doesn't give you the same pleasure as a cold beer in the sun , but mixed up in a fruit drink and it is fine . I prefer to take powders over pills so suits me just fine.
Sorry to say this is my least fav purchase from TPW, tried every way of taking it and just cant do it. The burp afterwards it barbarrick lol I am still quite happy to pay a little extra to take the tablets and despite having a little moan the product works for me
Works great and is cheaper than pills BUT tastes positively awful!
Impossible to drink with protein, will make your shake gag-inducing.
I thought it would be more practical that pills but the taste is so terrible than drinking it is every day's ordeal.
Agreed, it does taste like crap but it's great stuff none the less. Body fat coming down nicely :)
Tastes absolutely vile, but naturally vile! Easier and cheaper than taking a lot of the pills. Personally I find it just about palatable mixed with fruit juice, followed by more juice to help rid the taste, just can't swallow it in protein. At least it's natural. :-) If anybody else has hints on how to best take, please share.
