Finaflex ALC+CLA™ combines two of the most sought after non-stimulant based weight loss ingredients into one essential product. CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) is a fatty acid that has been shown in clinical studies to help maintain healthy body composition by reducing body fat and increasing lean muscle mass. ALC (Acetyl -L -Carnitine) is a highly bioavailable form of the amino acid L-Carnitine that supports cellular energy by enabling cells to oxidize fat cells and turn them into energy. Finaflex ALC+CLA™ will help you on your journey to weight management and lean muscle acquisition. Use Finaflex ALC+CLA™ with Finaflex Pro-Xanthine™ to further enhance effective weight management.*

Conjugated Linoleic Acid [CLA] is a fatty acid that has been shown in clinical studies to help burn fat, increase lean muscle, and enhance fat burning. Finaflex has combined these two phenomenal ingredients into one easy to swallow tablet. the 3:2 ration of CLA to ALC provides the body with the ammunition needed to burn fat!

What is Acetyl L Carnitine (ALC) and Why Should I Care?
L-Carnitine is derived from the amino acids lysine and methionine. It is mainly synthesized in the liver and the kidneys, and must be transported for uses to other tissues in the body. It is found in the highest concentrations in tissues that use fatty acids as the main dietary fuel, such as the skeletal and cardiac muscles.*
One of the key uses of Acetyl L-Carnitine supplement is for fatty acid oxidation - helping users burn unwanted body fat. Fatty acids are one of the key energy sources of the human body, and oxidation is the process by which they are broken down in order to create energy. The fatty acids cannot penetrate the inner mitochondria membrane (where they are burned for energy), and the key role for L-Carnitine is to transport fatty acids across the mitochondria membrane to allow for oxidation of fat.*
In English... it frees up fatty acids in the body making them more readily available for energy use, which means more energy and less fat.*
What is Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) and Why Should I Care?
January 2001 -- Major news for people with thyroid problems who are facing weight loss challenges is the news that the natural dietary supplement conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) reduces body fat in people who are overweight.*
A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study, published in the December 2000 issue of the Journal of Nutrition found that CLA reduces fat and preserves muscle tissue. According to the research project manager, an average reduction of six pounds of body fat was found in the group that took CLA, compared to a placebo group. The study found that approximately 3.4 grams of CLA per day is the level needed to obtain the beneficial effects of CLA on body fat.1
Dr. Michael Pariza, who conducted research on CLA with the University of Wisconsin-Madison, reported in August 2000 to the American Chemical Society that "It doesn't make a big fat cell get little. What it rather does is keep a little fat cell from getting big." Pariza's research did not find weight loss in his group of 71 overweight people, but what he did find was that when the dieters stopped dieting, and gained back weight, those taking CLA "were more likely to gain muscle and not fat.'' In a separate study conducted at Purdue University in Indiana, CLA was found to improve insulin levels in about two-thirds of diabetic patients, and moderately reduced the blood glucose level and triglyceride levels.*
CLA has been the subject of a variety of research in the past several years, and findings also suggest that some of the other benefits of CLA include the following:
- Increases metabolic rate -- This would obviously be a positive benefit for thyroid patients, as hypothyroidism -- even when treated -- can reduce the metabolic rate in some people.*
- Decreases abdominal fat -- Adrenal imbalances and hormonal shifts that are common in thyroid patients frequently cause rapid accumulation of abdominal fat, so this benefit could be quite helpful.*
- Enhances muscle growth -- Muscle burns fat, which also contributes to increased metabolism, which is useful in weight loss and management.*
- Lowers cholesterol and triglycerides -- Since many thyroid patients have elevated cholesterol and triglyceride levels, even with treatment, this benefit can have an impact on a thyroid patient's health.*
- Lowers insulin resistance -- Insulin resistance is a risk for some hypothyroid patients, and lowering it can also help prevent adult-onset diabetes and make it easier to control weight.*
- Reduces food-induced allergic reactions -- Since food allergies can be at play when weight loss becomes difficult, this can be of help to thyroid patients.*
- Enhances immune system -- Since most cases of thyroid disease are autoimmune in nature, enhancing the immune system's ability to function properly is a positive benefit.*
If you're interested in taking CLA to help with weight loss, keep in mind that it's not a magic pill, and you will need to start a program of diet and exercise in order to successfully lose weight and keep it off.*

ALC+CLA Review Summary
Goal: Burn Fat
Great non-stimulant thermo. Helps shed fat and manage weight. The nutrition facts stated on for the 120 capsule bottle is wrong on here though, so I recommend spending the extra $4 for the 240 capsule bottle *
