CLA: The Weight Management Game Changer
CLA is such a game changer for weight management because it’s nearly impossible to get enough from diet alone. So if you’ve been frustrated by other “miracle” solutions that haven’t delivered the results you want, it may be as simple as you not getting enough conjugated linoleic acid.
How exactly does CLA impact healthy weight loss goals? Clinical evidence shows linoleic acid helps modulate the metabolism of fat, which helps your body utilize food for energy. It has also been shown to support healthy levels of triglycerides in the bloodstream — in other words, it blocks your body from building fat stores.
The Secret Weapon for Healthy Weight
CLA may be a secret weapon for healthy weight because it acts as a “slim-signaling” prebiotic in your gut. It helps feed the good bacteria in your gut that play a direct role in body weight regulation, potentially protecting you against unwanted pounds.
CLA may also accelerate healthy weight loss and fat burning by upregulating your body’s metabolism while you sleep. It’s true — a study by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed that linoleic acid actually increased fat oxidation during sleeping hours in study participants.
CLA May Burn More Fat Calories
By increasing fat metabolism, conjugated linoleic acid helps your body burn more calories throughout the day, even at rest, and helps you utilize energy more efficiently.
What’s even more impressive, CLA “tells” your body to feed on its fat stores by using less protein for energy — meaning it plays a role in maintaining lean muscle mass.
Why You Need a CLA Supplement
So you may be wondering… why can’t you get enough CLA from diet alone? Conjugated linoleic acid is mostly concentrated in beef and dairy products, and even then — the source needs to be grass fed to get higher amounts of CLA. In fact, CLA levels are 300-500% higher in grass-fed cows when compared to grain-fed cows.
Here’s the kicker though: even if you eat a grass-fed steak every day and wash it down with a tall glass of grass-fed cow’s milk (and you know I don’t recommend dairy…), you would still only get a fraction of the linoleic acid needed to produce any weight management benefits. The problem is made worse by the change in livestock feeding practices over the last 50 years or so, which have stripped CLA from our diet even more.
Most People Don’t Get Nearly Enough CLA
The average American woman gets only about 151mg of CLA per day, while men get just a bit more. That’s not nearly enough linoleic acid to have any kind of effect on your weight or metabolism.
In fact, you need around 20 times that amount, or 3,000mg, per day to experience any weight loss benefits. This has been demonstrated repeatedly in double-blind, peer-reviewed studies (which are the gold standard when it comes to supplement testing).
Astoundingly, it would take you eating over 2 POUNDS of grass-fed beef every day to experience any metabolism-lifting benefits of CLA! Not to mention the fat, calories, and cholesterol that go along with all that red meat. Who wants to do that?
My pure mixed-isomer linoleic acid, on the other hand, delivers a waistline-cinching 4,000mg to your body every single day. What’s more, conjugated linoleic acid can cross the blood-brain barrier and support optimal serotonin levels (serotonin plays a key role in appetite control).
For healthy weight management and optimal metabolism support, CLA gets my endorsement as a medical doctor and functional medicine physician. I can’t wait to hear about your transformation!
*(BONUS TIP: Conjugated Linoleic Acid works synergistically with Lean Metabolism Support, which is the other supplement in my gut-brain axis approach to healthy weight control! Use both together to unlock maximum benefits!)

CLA is great for anyone who:
- Wants to support healthy weight loss goals

What makes Dr. Myers’ conjugated linoleic acid supplement different?
As a licensed medical doctor (M.D.), I take my supplements seriously. Every single one of my formulas features the most bioavailable nutrients that are not only of premium pharmaceutical-grade quality, they’re also difficult for non-M.D.s to obtain. You’ll find my CLA is standardized to 80% from safflower oil — most other products out there deliver far less (and don’t even list potency on the label).
How much CLA supplement should I order?
Even though everyone is different, clinical evidence shows that many people experience maximum healthy weight support and metabolism-boosting benefits with about 3 months or more of use. So I would recommend starting with 3 bottles or so if you want to experience the best results.
What time of day should I take CLA?
The time you take each dose will not change its effectiveness. I would recommend taking 1 dose with breakfast, and 1 with either lunch or dinner so you can begin integrating it into your daily routine easily.
Will I be forced into a subscription?
Absolutely not, this is a one-time purchase unless you elect otherwise. If you are interested in saving on your monthly supply, I do offer a Subscribe & Save option where you can save 15% on every order.
Why should I buy from you?
Having been failed by conventional medicine myself, I understand the hesitancy to trust someone new with your health. However, as a functional medicine physician and two-time New York Times bestselling author on the topics of autoimmunity and thyroid health, I have spent the better part of my professional life dedicated to empowering people just like you to take back their health.
Nothing is more important to me than helping you achieve your optimal health and I’ve done so by offering you my expert knowledge on this website, tirelessly working to ensure that all of my supplements are of the highest quality, and building a team dedicated to servicing all of your needs.

Why Buy from Amy Myers MD?
Finally, supplements from a source you can actually trust. After receiving my medical degree (M.D.) at Louisiana State University, I completed my residency in Emergency Medicine at the University of Maryland Medical Center. In 2012, I became a certified functional medicine physician, so I could help my patients get to the root cause of their health problems.
Since then, I’ve gone on to write 2 New York Times bestselling books, as well as the Amazon #1 bestseller The Autoimmune Solution Cookbook. I’ve been a guest on the Dr. Oz Show 7 times, have starred in my own PBS special, and been featured in dozens of television, radio, and magazine interviews.
Many other supplement brands are run by fly-by-night operations looking to turn a quick buck. Not so with Amy Myers MD® — it’s one of the only health and wellness brands owned and operated by a real medical doctor (that’s me)!
You’ll know exactly what you’re getting because all products are 3rd party tested and verified. You may be surprised to know that the supplement industry is not regulated by the FDA and it’s up to the manufacturer to ensure they’re delivering high-quality products that contain what they say they do.
All of the supplements I carry in my store carry the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) seal, meaning they have been 3rd party tested for purity, quality, potency, and composition, so you can rest assured that you’re getting the key nutrients you’re paying for and that your body needs.
High-potency, pharmaceutical grade supplements to maximize value and impact.
Because I am a licensed physician, the supplements I carry are pharmaceutical grade, meaning they are higher quality and typically higher dosages than you can find in a health food store or online retailer.
This is vital because cost per unit is a key metric to look at when choosing supplements. If you look at a supplement such as my 100 Billion probiotic, you will find that you may need to take nearly an entire bottle of other probiotics to achieve the same potency.
My supplements contain no gluten, dairy, soy, GMOs, preservatives, dyes, or toxic ingredients. You’re not eating these inflammatory foods or toxins so why would you want them in your supplements?! I source all of the ingredients in my supplements from pure, clean sources.
There are a few incredibly rare exceptions where products contain trace amounts of dairy or egg because of the way they need to be formulated, however they are clearly marked on the product page and are in such low quantities that even my very sensitive patients typically have not had a reaction.
The highest quality ingredients in the form that is best absorbed and utilized by your body. The form and formulation of the vitamins and nutrients in your supplements make a difference! I have specifically sourced and formulated the ingredients in my products to be in their most bioavailable forms for maximum effectiveness.
Every product in my store has been personally vetted by me. Not only have I researched and tested every product I carry, I have also worked with thousands of patients to determine which formulations that produce the very best results.
Shopping is risk-free with my 90-day return guarantee. I stand behind all of the products I carry in my store. If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase, simply send the unused portion back to me, and we will refund your money.*
