It seems there is some research showing it reduces insulin sensitivity, while others showing it improves it. Many seem to indicate it reduces fat mass, decreases fat accumulation, and even induces adipocyte apoptosis. Is there any final verdict on CLA?

I wouldn't. How many people do you know singing it's praises? And it's fairly pricey. To the garbage it goes.

I've heard a number of reputable coaches recommend CLA (Poliquin, Berardi), and the research is intriguing. And sources I see aren't pricey.

Clearly the right isomers are important, the 10 and 12 isomers. However what ratios in supplemental form are beneficial since none of them are just the 10 and 12 isomers?
