Effect Of Conjugated Linoleic Acid On Body Fat Accretion In Overweight Or Obese Children
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
Over 7+/-0.5 months in prepubertal overweight/obese children given 3g CLA daily, CLA reduced the increase of BMI seen in the placebo group from 1.1+/-1.1 to 0.5+/-0.8, with statistically significant but clinically irrelevant fat loss (0.5kg over 7 months, whereas placebo gained 1.3kg).
HDL-cholesterol decreased by 5.1+/-7.3mg/dL in CLA and by -0.7 +/- 8mg/dL in placebo, which was significant.
