FitStrong has added a new product to their weight-loss line: CLA. The company claims it is an all-natural option for fat loss and muscle growth.

I’m always ready for new compounds to give me that extra boost in the gym, so I was excited to take a look at FitStrong CLA.

What’s Inside?

Keeping up with their reputation, FitStrong kept the ingredients in CLA simple. In fact, there’s only one: conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).

CLA is an omega-6 fatty acid, similar to omega-3s found in fish oil. It’s usually used to promote healthy cardiovascular function and tissue repair.

However, various studies have found that CLA significantly increases short-term fat burning potential, helping subjects lose weight in a 12-week period. [1]

Other studies have found that CLA also improves the body’s ability to regenerate and grow lean muscle, although the studied dosage is slightly higher than what is found in FitStrong CLA. [2]

How Much Does It Cost?

FitStrong CLA is surprisingly affordable for a new supplement. New products are generally available through a limited number of retailers. While FitStrong CLA is no different, the price isn’t prohibitively high.

The official FitStrong website offers CLA for $54.99, plus shipping.

The only other retailer with CLA is, which has it for $44.99, with free shipping and a money-back guarantee.

That comes out to about $0.50/serving, which is pretty low for a high-quality supplement.

How Do I Take It?

Dosage is very easy: 1 capsule per day, taken with water. That’s it, no complicated schedules or required times.

Who Makes It?

FitStrong Supplements is a relatively new company, started in 2013. They set themselves as unique by offering pre-make stacks of products for general goals, for both men and women.

I was honestly surprised by the quality of FitStrong’s products. Nearly every supplement contained high doses of simple, proven ingredients, no fillers or complex blends.

Should I Use It?

I think FitStrong CLA is an excellent product and highly recommend it for anyone looking to shed fat or gain lean muscle mass. It’s available at a good price, easy to take, and pure.
