What You Should Know
Conjugated linoleic acid is derived from safflower oil. The first well-known CLA supplement was Tonalin CLA. This supplement was tested as a weight loss product with good results – in the athletic community. Despite this fact, manufacturers constantly push CLA onto dieters claiming it will help them melt away fat. Luckily, CLOmega 369 is marketed to athletes. It may help the market audience slim down, reduce fat and increase lean muscle mass, but it will not have that same effect on the average dieter. However, the ingredients in CLOmega 369 are strong enough to support cardiovascular health for anyone taking the supplement.
List of Ingredients
CLOmega-369 Blend, Tonalin CLA (Yielding 80% Or 1000mg Conjugated Linoleic Acid), Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Refined Fish Oil Concentrate (From Mackeral, Sardine & Anchovy), EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid 33%), DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid 22%), Borage Seed Oil (20% GLA), Lecithin (From Soy And Rich In Phospholipids, Phosphatidyl Choline, Phosphadityl Ethanolamine, Phosphatidyl Inositol), Omega 3 Fatty Acids (EPA, DHA,ALA), Omega 6 Fatty Acids (Linoleic Acid & GLA) and Omega 9 Fatty Acids (Oleic Acid).
Want to lose weight without lifting a finger? Try conjugated linoleic acid, according to tons of product descriptions we have reviewed over the years. CLA is not a miracle ingredient or supplement, but it is backed with some clinical support for athletes using the supplement during exercise. Imagine being a percentage or two from the ideal body fat. No matter how much you work out, you cannot slim down that last bit. CLA may help you achieve those goals, but it will not help a dieter lose weight.
In addition to CLA, CLOmega 369 includes some pretty impressive omega fatty acids. There is one problem, however. The western diet contains all the omega 6 and omega 9 fatty acids the body needs. There is an imbalance between these omega acids and omega 3s, so most omega supplements forgo omega 6 and 9 and just add omega 3 – not CLOmega 369. Omega fatty acids will not support fat loss, so we’re not sure why they are needed in this supplement.

We love fish oil and omega fatty acid supplements. The clinical research on omega fatty acids is phenomenal and most people have no idea how important these oils are for heart health. Moreover, some fatty acids, like CLA, may help athletes achieve the perfect body in less time. It is important to remember that CLA is not for everyone. It may cause stomach discomfort and gas and there are no supportive studies on weight loss using the supplement by overweight dieters.
