The following is a review for a dietary supplement from Bronson Nutritionals called Tonalin CLA. This product has an active ingredient that is called conjugated linoleic acid. This fatty acid supplements weight loss by providing the metabolism with a boost. It can be found in meat and dairy products and is often extracted from safflower oil. The manufacturers of this product claim that daily use of CLA is associated with reduced visceral fat as well as increased muscle. This product might be particularly effective for individuals who suffer from type-2 diabetes because it helps lower blood sugar levels
- Tonalin Safflower Oil
- Vegetable Glycerin
- Natural Caramel Color
- Purified Water
At first glance, this seems like quite a good list of ingredients especially because it only contains only natural ingredients. However, we were concerned about the fact that this supplement offers 78-84% conjugated linoleic acid. Similar products offer a guaranteed 85% concentration of the active ingredient in each serving. We were also worried about the gelatin that is included in this supplement. The manufacturer does not state the source of the gelatin so it is unclear if it is suitable for vegetarians to use.
The recommended dosage for this supplement is two softgel capsules taken twice daily. The manufacturer states that you should consult a healthcare professional before beginning to take it on a daily basis. According to our research, a dosage of 8000 mg of conjugated linoleic acid is excessive. An overdose of conjugated linoleic acid has been associated with an accumulation of fat in the liver and the development of insulin resistance.
You can buy this product from the manufacturer’s store for $18.19 for a bottle that contains 90 softgel capsules. There is currently a 30% off promotion on this product so the regular price is $25.99. Unfortunately, there are no special offers available for people who wish to make bulk purchases.
The manufacturers of this product offer a 100% guarantee on their product for one year. If you are at all unsatisfied with the quality of the product, you can return it for a full refund. Additionally, refunds are also available for products that have already been opened. The unused portion of the product can be sent back to the manufacturer for a full refund.
Conclusion – Tonalin CLA
After we completed this review for Tonalin CLA, we concluded that it was a rather good supplement to include in a weight loss program. This product contains only natural ingredients and is free from any additional additives, preservatives, and fillers. However, we were rather concerned about the safety of this product as the recommended dosage is significantly higher than the recommended daily dosage for conjugated linoleic acid. Taking such a large amount of this product on a daily basis could leave you with lasting health issues. Additionally, there are no customer reviews available for this product, which really made us question if this product is effective.
