CLA,ALA have Anabolic properties?

Post by Christianiron.com » Fri Sep 23, 2011 7:36 am

I have used these in the final weeks trying to make contest weight in the past, and have been using more steadily in recent weeks without really dieting. This is the only substantial change to my supplement regimen other than adding liquid D-3 recently also. I have been feeling good & able to train heavier with less soreness & quicker recuperation, and it seems the supps have been a factor. Any experience like this out there?

I suppose that supplementing with any nutrient that you're deficient in will be anabolic. Once you've met your needs, extra doesn't really help. CLA from supplements is less effective that that found in grass fed meat and ALA can compete with EPA fouind in fish, so I would suggest that increasing your consumption of grass fed meat and fatty fish should be more effective than supplementing with CLA and ALA.
