What is Clarinol CLA Softgels?
This is a review of BlueBonnet’s Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) product. CLA is said to aid in weight management when used in conjunction with a proper diet and exercise. It is said to work by reducing the amount of fat that is broken down, deposited and stored by the body.
BlueBonnet claims that the unique profile of Clarinol CLA can help to “sculpt or reshape” your body by reducing body fat and helping to build lean muscle.
There are many CLA softgel products on the market and we took a close look to see how BlueBonnet’s formulation measured up. Read on to find out what we discovered.
- Safflower Oil 1000mg
- (which provides Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) 780mg
Gelatin (bovine), glycerine, purified water, natural coloring.
There are 60 softgel capsules in a container, but there is no indication of how many softgels one should take daily, or how these should be taken.
As there is only 780mg of CLA per serving – that is per softgel – and based on what we know of other CLA products currently available, it would seem that one should take at least two softgel capsules per day – possibly even three – to obtain any real effect.
What is the Cost?
BlueBonnet does not appear to have a retail purchasing option on its website. The product can be obtained from other online suppliers for around $20. This seems to be quite expensive when compared to similar products, with similar potency, available from the various online retailers.
We were unable to find any information from BlueBonnet about its position regarding a guarantee for its Clarinol CLA Softgels. We were also unable to find any reference to its return policy. We recommend, therefore, that you establish what the returns policy is of the supplier from whom you purchase this product.
Our Final Review of BlueBonnet Clarinol CLA Softgels
What’s good about this product? Well, it does contain a pure form of CLA which is derived from non-GMO Safflower oil. And it is free of allergens such as corn, yeast, gluten, barley, rice, sodium and sugar.
That said, there is little to recommend it when compared to other CLA products currently available. It appears to contain lower amounts of the active ingredient and there is no clarity as to how many and how frequently you should consume the softgel capsules.
We should also point out that while this is not specifically stated by the manufacturer, we would recommend that Vegetarians do not take Clarinol CLA Softgels as the gelatin used in the softgel capsules is probably of bovine origin.
The manufacturer does not provide any information (that we could find) about its manufacturing process; not does BlueBonnet provide a clear statement of its confidence in the product by offering any kind of guarantee – or even a return policy.
