MetaSlim® CLA 950 mg Plus Chromium may be a suitable choice for anyone seeking a natural health product to help support body composition and healthy glucose metabolism. Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a naturally occurring fatty acid found at low levels in some foods, such as beef and dairy (1,2). It is clinically proven to support a modest reduction in fat mass and a modest improvement in body composition (the ratio of fat mass to lean mass) when used with a program of reduced intake of dietary calories and increased physical activity (3,4).Chromium is an essential trace mineral that supports multiple biological functions with key roles in the maintenance of good health (5). Studies show that supplemental chromium provides support for healthy glucose metabolism (5,6). It helps to maintain normal blood glucose levels and the body’s ability to metabolize nutrients (5).Features and Benefits:Made with high-potency CLA derived from 1000 mg of non-GMO premium safflower oilProvides 950 mg of CLA and 100 mcg of chromium per softgelNo glutenSugar freeNon-GMOFree of artificial colours, preservatives, and sweetenersNo dairy, starch, wheat, yeast, soy, corn, egg, fish, shellfish, salt, or tree nutsGelatin – bovineNPN 80081170Recommended dosage (adults):2 softgels 2 times daily or as directed by a physicianConsult a physician for use beyond 6 monthsServings:60 daysCautions or warnings:Consult a physician prior to use if you are obese or have cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors (e.g., high blood pressure, high cholesterol and/or triglycerides), if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if your goal is to achieve weight loss.
