Abstract

We examined the effect of dietary conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) on lipid parameters in the liver, white adipose tissue (WAT) and brown adipose tissue (BAT) of Sprague-Dawley rats and found that it reduced the levels of triglycerides and non-esterified fatty acid in the liver and WAT without significant change in the BAT lipid levels. These results suggest that CLA has an obesity-preventing action.
