When this review was written, the plant-derived, Non-GMO and gluten-free formula contained no artificial ingredients or preservatives. The active ingredients per serving (1 liquid softgel) are Safflower Oil (1,250 mg) and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) (1,187 mg).
CLA is a common ingredient found in many non-prescription weight management products. It is believed to help lower body fat deposits as well as improve immune function. Conjugated linoleic acid is a group of chemicals found in the fatty acid, linoleic acid. Beyond supplements, the major dietary sources that contain CLA include beef and dairy products.
Some research suggests that CLA may help treat obesity, as it may decrease body fat in adults and may also lower feelings of hunger. That being said, it doesn’t seem to decrease body mass index or body weight in most people and even if it decreases feelings of hunger, this doesn’t mean that taking CLA will lead to the ingestion of fewer calories.
Safflower Oil, on the other hand, is a plant and many people know it by its more common name, saffron. The linolenic acids in safflower oil may help to lower cholesterol and lower blood pressure. It is possibly effective for helping to lower bad cholesterol. That being said, it doesn’t appear to offer any benefit for weight loss.
The suggested use for Max Potency CLA 1250 is to take 1 liquid softgel 3 times per day, 30 minutes prior to a meal or as directed by a qualified healthcare practitioner.
Users are warned to first check with their doctor before using Max Potency CLA 1250, especially if they are pregnant, nursing, have existing medical conditions or are taking prescription medications.
While this dietary supplement does not contain stimulants, like caffeine, which means there’s no risk of side effects like insomnia, jitters, heart palpitations, etc., this doesn’t mean side effects won’t occur. Although most people can take CLA and safflower oil without an issue, the most common adverse effects are stomach upset, fatigue, diarrhea, and nausea.
Overall, Max Potency CLA 1250 appears to be a well-designed and quality product, there’s just no guarantee that taking it will help you achieve your fat loss goals.
