There has been a buzz has been about Tonalin CLA with a number of manufacturers choosing this form of CLA in their supplements. For those that do, what differentiates them is their customer service, clinical research on the particular product in question, whether it has side effects, as well as the other ingredients used. So we decided to review Natrol Tonalin CLA to see how it measures up.
Natrol Tonalin CLA modestly and simply claims it can help maintain a healthy body weight when combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise. Read on for the details about Natrol Tonalin CLA.
Natrol Tonalin CLA contains
- Tonalin Conjugated Lineolic Acid (CLA) FFA 80% obtained from safflower oil
- Mixed Tocopherols (functioning as a preservative)
- Carmel Color
The active ingredient, Tonalin Conjugated Linoleic Acid or CLA is purported to be effective in reducing body fat while helping to maintain lean body mass. The product web page mentions that Tonalin CLA has been clinically tested but does not reference any particular studies.
The recommended dosage is one softgel three times a day with a meal, resulting in a daily intake of 3600 mg of CLA.
At the time of this review you could purchase a bottle containing 90 softgels (a month’s supply) of Natrol Tonalin CLA on Amazon.com for $12.99. Per softgel it was more expensive at Walmart where you could purchase a 60-softgel bottle for $12.35.
We were unable to find a return or refund on the manufacturer’s website. Check the return policy of the individual retailer from which you purchase.
Conclusion – Natrol Tonalin CLA
Natrol Tonalin CLA contains a recognized, trademarked formulation of CLA and it is Ephedra-free. But it has garnered only fair Amazon customer ratings which, at the time of our review, were 71% positive and a notable 21% negative. We were also not impressed by the lack of a return/refund policy. We would recommend looking at other CLA products which provide clear customer service guidelines.
