Notes for this study:
In healthy overweight humans, CLA taken at 3.4g for 2 years was able to reduce fat mass and did not influence lean mass.

Aspartate Amino transferase (liver enzyme) increased, but alanine amino transferase did not. Glucose was unchanged, body fat mass was reduced by 1.7+/-2.8kg over 2 years with no effects in the first year; bone mineral density and lean mass were unaffected.
