Yeah, I Like Conjugated Linoleic Acid

by Tim, No Comments »

Check out this article on a study done on the quality of milk from grass-fed cows. The study found “grazing cows on organic farms in the UK produce milk which contains significantly higher beneficial fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins than their conventional ‚Äòhigh input‚Äô counterparts.” It also went on to note that during certain periods CLA was 60% higher!

Numerous studies have found conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) to fight cancer, preserve muscle, and reduce fat. Basically CLA makes you a lean mean fighting machine. Ok, I just wanted to say that. The best way to get your CLA is through high quality grass-fed beef and raw dairy. I do believe all plant eaters like sheep and cows produce CLA. I have heard lamb is an excellent source of CLA as well and I have had the taste for lamb lately and when I have it I will blog about it and let you know smile. Well… I am gonna go have a glass of real milk.
