Ainsley’s CLA + Coconut Oil + Aminos Refresher
October 29, 2017
Ainsley Rodriguez is a smoothie-making pro, but this refresher may take the cake. The fruity mix is the perfect start to your morning, and the benefits of adding CLA + Coconut Oil + Aminos last all day.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a fatty acid that studies show helps burn stored body fat for fuel. When combined with weight training, it’s also beneficial for anyone trying to build muscle and increase strength. For the best results, take it for at least 12 weeks with breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Coconut oil is made up of about 65% medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). Your body absorbs these shorter chain fatty acids faster than other fats, which may result in increased energy and a boost in metabolism. For best results, use coconut oil in place of fats found in vegetable oils and animal products.
Amino acids are the building blocks of muscle. Adding them to your supplement regimen can help you build muscle, optimize muscle recovery and prevent muscle loss, even when you’re on a diet. Plus, studies show that lifters taking branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) lose about twice as much body fat as those taking protein without added BCAAs.
To get the benefits of all three of these ingredients, simply add one scoop of CLA + Coconut Oil + Aminos to this refresher. Don’t have the time? Simply mix it in with your water and it’s just as delicious!
