The amazing Alpha Cuts® formula!
CLA Conjugated Linoleic Acid CLA is an improved form of Linoleic Acid, an Omega-6 fatty acid extremely important to our health. It’s well known for it’s anti-catabolic effects on human muscle tissue along with being a potent anti-oxidant.CLA helps in naturally lowering cholesterol and triglycerides, increasing basic metabolism and boosting your immune system. It inhibits the activity of the enzyme lipoprotein lipase (LPL). LPL transfers fats from the bloodstream to the fat cells and consequently the transport of fat into fat cells is blocked. At the same time CLA also stimulates the breakdown of stored body fat (lipolysis). CLA increases the activity of the enzyme CPT (Carnitine Palmitoyltransferase). This unique form of Carnitine is present in muscle tissue and is responsible for the transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria where energy production takes place. Fat can now be used as fuel for energy production. With an increased activity of CPT in the skeletal muscle, CLA increases the transport of fat into the mitochondria where it can be used to full benefit.
Taurine is an an amazing amino acid pure and simple. It is a potent anti-oxidant and physical performance enhancer. It helps the body digest food, especially fats in a particular way by metabolizing fat cells, making them readily available for energy production. Taurine supplements can reduce the risk of hyperglycemia and insulin resistance.
