NOW CLA Extreme is a fat-burning dietary supplement that is meant to boost energy, burn fat, and decrease the amount of fat that gets stored in the body.

Created by NOW, a huge company to say the least, CLA Extreme is apparently the ultimate CLA product that will sweep you off your feet and help you to lose more weight than ever before through the unique use of CLA, a clinically proven weight loss ingredient. Supposedly, CLA Extreme will help you achieve the results you’re looking for without diminishing overtime.

But does CLA Extreme actually work? Let’s do a little research to find out.

About the Ingredients

NOW CLA Extreme contains two sources of caffeine: green tea extract, and Guarana. Both of these ingredients will provide clinically proven fat burning and appetite suppressing results, and both are commonly used in the most popular name brand products and pills on the market. Additionally, Green Tea and Guarana also contain a wide variety of antioxidants, which can eliminate free radicals from your system and naturally spark thermogenesis.

Unfortunately, in order to be effective, a supplement needs at least 400mg of 50% caffeine per serving, but CLA extreme only offers 50 mg total. While this may give you an extra kick during the day, it might not be enough to provide any solid fat burning results.

This supplement also includes an interesting substance called L-Carnitine, which is believed to increase the creation of insulin in the body. Insulin is a hormone in your blood that regulates fat and carbohydrate metabolism. With increased insulin in your system, your metabolism will skyrocket, which will let you burn fat more quickly and easily, and will result in there being less fat ending up in stores around the body.

This sounds like a great addition to any fat-burning supplement, but studies still need to be done in order to be able to know if the use of L-Carnitine in a supplement will benefit a body that is trying to lose fat The recommended dosage of CLA is 4500mg, but CLA Extreme only offers 750mg, so the results might not be as strong as you might think.

As for the main ingredient itself?

Conjugated linoleic acid, the “CLA” in CLA Extreme, is a naturally occurring nonessential fatty acid in the body that has been proven in over 30 clinical studies to be a successful fat-burner, which is definitely a good sign.

When used correctly, CLA can prevent the hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) while simultaneously decreasing the total number of fat cells. If abused, however, CLA may cause negative side effects such as stomach upset, diarrhea, nausea, and fatigue.


NOW CLA Extreme is a pretty good product. The ingredients are all relevant, though it is uncertain whether they will all actually aid you in seeing results as you try to burn more fat. There are probably better products out there with more reliable ingredients in it, but NOW CLA Extreme might at least be able to get you started as you seek a healthier new you.

I’m not 100% sold on it yet but I’m hopeful. Just don’t take it if you have to go anywhere. I had to cancel all appointments because I’ve had diarrhea since 3 hours after taking the first pill. That’s not normal for me. I’m hoping it’s just my body cleansing itself and needing an adjustment period to the CLA but for now I can’t leave the house. :/

Yes, I recommend this product
