Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), found in butter, milk, and meat from pasture-raised cows (the higher the altitude the better), may be one of our most potent defenders against cancer. It also appears to encourage the buildup of muscle and prevent weight gain, and may be helpful in enhancing immunity and reducing inflammation. CLA is not a single substance, but a collective term for a class of conjugated dieonic isomers of linoleic acid. I recommend that you seek out CLA in its natural state, not the synthetic CLA sold in supplements. Among the many sources of intelligence I have found useful in researching CLA are The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and, of course, Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Traditions, as well as Jo Robinson’s website, eatwild.com. I am happy with the excellent grass-fed meat I have purchased from uswellness.com and strongly recommend these folk to you.
