The American Journal of Clinical Nutritionhas published the latest clinical trial with Clarinol CLA. Researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison clearly demonstrated that Clarinol CLA reduces body-fat mass in 6- to 10-year-old children who were overweight or obese, using chocolate milk with CLA for 6 months.
Although the fat reduction effect of CLA has been observed in many clinical studies in both adult men and women, this study is the first to demonstrate the body fat-lowering effects of Clarinol CLA in overweight and obese children.
The population consisted of 53 children who were overweight or obese and was randomized into two groups: a CLA group (n=28) and a placebo group (n=25). They were provided one chocolate milk with either 3 grams Clarinol CLA or placebo oil per serving once a day for six months. The children consuming the chocolate milk with Clarinol CLA showed a significant decrease in body fat and an increase in lean mass vs. the placebo group. The children in the CLA group also showed a positive effect on the BMI. The blood parameters in both groups stayed within the normal range.
“Childhood obesity is a big problem associated with a large array of health problems later in life,” said Alfred Haandrikman, R&D director for Lipid Nutrition. “This first study into the application of CLA as food ingredients for children shows promising effect to reduce body fat and increase lean body mass and therefore has an enormous promise in improving the health of children.”
