*Weight Burner Boost is made with conjugated linoleic acid, or “CLA”, which is derived from safflower oil. CLA is a naturally occurring fatty acid that is commonly found in foods such as milk. CLA intake of between 1.7 grams to 3.6 grams per day for eight to 12 weeks can lead to improved weight management when combined with a healthy diet and exercise program. Results will not be achieved with sporadic consumption. Each serving of Weight Burner Boost supplies two grams of CLA.
