I've tried CLA pills in the past, but decided to try it in powder form. I felt that the pill form did have a small effect on me, but it is always hard to tell how much as I was exercising a lot at the time. I am hoping the powder form will have the same effect, though I have not used it long enough to notice anything yet. I found it mixed very well with whatever I put it in, though I would recommend mixing it with something that tastes quite strong as the flavour by itself is not pleasant. I've mixed it with other flavoured protein powders and found it masks the taste of the CLA quite well
Bought this instead of tablets as it was on offer and I much prefer the tablets. It mixes well but doesn't taste great however my rating is not reflected on taste as it is unflavoured after all. The pro is that you can take it in the morning and you are done for the day as I had an issue forgetting to take the tablets with my food and it does Mix well - you could add to a morning protein or smoothie and not notice it at all. I have been using CLA for over 4 months in conjunction with a heavy weightlifting regime and diet plan so am unable to effectively comment on if it specifically has given me results.
It's worthy to purchase for all serious competitor.As you know about effects of CLA,I always take that all through the year.So the cost performance is important as well as quality.This product,I promise,satisfies our demand.Goes Well With:I sprinkle it over salad or beans.You like that way.
Not sure why people are saying it tastes to so bad. I have it every morning in water with a effervescent Vitamin C, and Creatine. All I taste is the orange flavour of the VitC! Not sure how well iut's doing yet as I've only been using it a few days.Goes Well With:Vitamin C.
I haven't had any problems with the taste of this, I mix it with protein powder, 150ml almond milk and a teaspoon of cinnamon and can drink it easily. Seems to be working too! Goes Well With:Almond milk
A lot of people saying it tastes bad but all you have to do is have it with milk and a few drops of vanilla essence or Myprotein flavdrops, mix it in a protein shaker as it dissolves much better. This removes the taste. I have noticed some fat loss around the stomach but you have to have a clean diet and plenty of exercise or else you will see no difference. I lost 1.5kg in a week with this, the powder is better value for money than the pills.Goes Well With:Myprotein flavdrops toffee flavour, vanilla essence
Vile taste an the smell is even worse. I couldnt choose softgel form because i cant take them. You can get rid of the taste slightly with juice but dont use the full amount of cla just have it in little bits troughout day. Or like a shot. The smell reminds me of something you put on the walls paint or glue. Excellent in what t does. So reccomendGoes Well With:Juice or a shot of water
I was recommended this product on the build up to summer, to cut off some winter fat. I does work really well within a COUPLE DAYS of taking it with good diet and exercise I'm already able to see my summer body. As a VEGETARIAN I cannot take the soft gels so this is the next best thing. This product does TASTE BAD, unfortunately. Personally I thought it tasted worst mixed in a protein shack because it contrasted with the shack flavor so much. Whereas with water it only has a brief after taste. I have over come this through TAKING IT LIKE A SHOT, with a small amount of water in one gulp. Then chasing it with coffee or whatever your morning drink is. Goes Well With:small amount of water
Well I bought this product with the intention of losing fat quickly. I was recommended CLA softgels but they were sold out at the time, so I went for the powder thinking it would be fine as an alternative. And boy was I wrong. It said on the packet to mix with 150-200ml of water or fruit juice, so I decided that an orange lucosade sport would be fine. I measured out the liquid, and then measured out the CLA powder (as mine did not come with a scoop) and as soon as I stirred the mixture once, it turned my orange diluted looking drink into a white milk looking liquid. The smell was atrocious and I couldn't handle more than two sips due to the thickness of this mix and the taste of plastic too. Straight after, I ordered the soft gels (as they had come back into stock) and I have been taking them since. I do not regret that decision at all. Softgels all the way. They do the job which CLA is known for and I have lost 3 inches of fat off my stomach area. Great success, but definitely wouldn't go back to using the powder so it'll now just sit in my cupboard gathering dust.Goes Well With:nothing
This product is helpful only if you stick to Ur eating habits :) I have been on this for a week and I can see slight difference to my weight. Taste is not good but mix it with other liquids . Goes Well With:Juice & soya milk
This powder tastes discussing and there is nothing you can mix it with to make it drinkable. It also leaves s00ome horrible aftertaste.Goes Well With:Nothing
I've just bought this product and therefore don't know how effective it is. I can say that it smells and tastes really bad, worst of all supplements I have ever come across.Goes Well With:Doesn't matter, the taste and smell is still there.
Mixes well, in to food or drinks/shakes. Scoop included. Prefer to tablets as taking lot of tablet can be a chore, good price too.
great value for money. I mix it with keytones and green tea powder, only used short while but think it has made a difference, will buy again
Mixes very well, and it does work as intended. But it is the fowlest smelling & tasting supplement I've ever encountered. A supplement that smell & tastes as it does is beyond flavouring I guess. Neck it & try not to gagGoes Well With:Green tea extract
This powder is really great. I simply hate the flavor. I cannot even describe it. But if you can take it, you’ll see results really quick. I take 1 small scoop before training with 1 small scoop of L-Acetyl Carnitine and 2 capsules of MP Thermo Max and my body is getting leaner than ever. Overall it deserves 5 stars because is excellent in effectiveness that it’s what matters for me.Goes Well With:Water. Taking it with L-Acetyl Carnitine boosts results.
The taste takes a bit of getting used to, but I can manage to drink it mixed with just a bit of water now. Mix with cordial or even your protein shake if you want to mask the taste. In terms of effectiveness, i've only been using it for a few weeks and i've lost weight. But this may also be due to me being at a calorie deficit. The research behind CLA is very convincing though so I am sure it is doing something!
The taste is definitely not the greatest, the smell reminds me of paint and that same smell is the same taste you get. I mix it with chocolate soy protein and it mixes perfectly well, no issues on that front, but you can still taste the CLA through the protein. Noticed the love handles vanish a little bit. Would most likely get again, just be prepared for an odd taste.Goes Well With:Soy Protein + HMB
Taste isn't great, but you soon get used to it. After a couple of weeks (mixed into my main protein shake) I dont even notice the taste anymore. I'm not sure how effective it is as a weight loss supplement, however it seems like it is helping me add a small amount of extra mass, giving my muscles a nice little 'pop'Goes Well With:Impact Diet Whey
great if you dont like or cannot take tablet form. Taste is okay if mixing with fruit juice or something similar - would not take on owen with water. Would buy again.
I can't tell of the effects just yet, but it seems to have some or little effect, but it has a weird taste, that you just have to get used to. Nothing bad if you just swallow without enjoying..
CLA Powder is very good, it gives you extra strength.Goes Well With:water
Great for Vegetarians who cannot consume the gelatine capsules nor if you want to swallow large pills. You can also eat it without mixing it with water, the taste is not that bad! I would recommend it.
I started using CLA Powder on recommendation from a friend while cutting - it really works! It mixes very well, taste is not brilliant but is definitely very manageable.Goes Well With:Water, soya milk, almond milk
I've been using CLA Powder for over 6 months now and I do feel the difference. This is recommended, the taste however isn't great yet I got used to it!
Only been using CLA Powder for a week and I can feel the difference already. It doesn't mix very well, gets a bit lumpy, but if you mix it with juice the awful taste is masked. I would recommend this product to anyone trying to cut weight, you do still need to keep a good diet though. If you don't and you try and use this as a quick fix, it will not work.Goes Well With:Cordial
This CLA Powder is a good, standard product. It does what it says.
CLA Powder is a fantastic product, if you can get over the bitter chemical taste that seems to overpower almost everything I have tried mixing it with. Personally I find the taste seems to linger also and feels chalky. Instead of incorporating it into my regular supplement shakes, I just mix it separately with a small quantity of milk and some green tea extract. It works for me. Goes Well With:For me, nothing. Use a small quantity of water or milk.
I previously had the soft-tabs, but needed to save money. After reading this CLA Powder unflavoured, I didn't actually check the ingredients until after receiving the bag. As this product is only 50% CLA - 2.5g of CLA per 5g of product, the remainder been sweetener, this works out £8 more expensive then the soft-tabs per 250g of CLA, but with all the hassle of mixing and storing a powder. Otherwise, CLA seems to help me stay low fat. This product has only a mild taste, so no problems there.
I would not recommend this if it's your intention to mix it with a shake. The horrible taste renders any flavour virtually undrinkable. Results are good with CLA but I'm having to investigate other ways of consuming the remaining powder I have. Goes Well With:Nothing.
CLA powder has no taste! I need to order my second pack. I mix it in warm water or warm milk, it mixes perfectly and has no taste as well. It works well, especially if you like the occasional fats i.e. butter, biscuits, cakes. You have to have a good diet and have CLA, but a cheat day is good to keep cravings away. I have it 3 times a day and I am loving it, especially before I go to gym. I have a lot of energy! It's good stuff!
"Have gone through numerous CLA powders from many suppliers, and this by far is the best. Ignore what people say about taste...because who cares? Its CLA powder from my Protein, not a Steak from a 5* restaurant...the potency of this product is the best I've had, and it really helps with cutting fat! "
"Received it today, intrigued to know what it tasted like after the reviews! ...It hardly tastes of anything. If you think CLA powder tastes bad you should try BCAA or HMB powder. Haven't notice any effects yet.....mind you, i've only had one dosage haha."
Cla is effective. Usually get tabs but thought id try the powder and just add it Into my shakes. Safe to say i will be sticking to tabs as it is one of The worst tasting things to ever grace my stomach.
"I have only just started using this so can't comment on its results, but one things for sure it is one of the most vile things to ever pass my lips. Tried it with water and promised myself never again, so mixed with juice and it helped mask the flavour. So the stronger the juice the less you can taste it which is a good thing. Plus side it mixes ok. I will leave further feedback in a couple of weeks with its results which I hope are worth it."
"I haver been using CLA for a while now and although its a different more expensive brand the ingredient profile is practically identical. With that said the only part f this review that info will be applied to is the Effectiveness. CLA doesnt MIX very very well in liquid. It always leaves a little froth which some people may find unpleasant texture-wise. The TASTE however is quite milky, almost like the dust off the old fashion milk bottles. Taking this into consideration for those that may find the mixability an issue, you can always sprinkle/dust CLA over food. It has a pleasant and mild taste and will go almost unnoticed. The effectiveness for CLA is well documented. I wont go into the research but this brilliant product has shown to decrease body fat whilst increasing lean mass... All without any other intervention. This means its a must for ALL athletes/practitioners of good health. HOWEVER - to be effective CLA should be taken regularly for quite a few weeks to be effective. Research shows 8 weeks minimum - now at £16.99 for 250g this is AMAZING value for money. So if you cant afford Grass fed meat and want to take advantage of this great opportunity, jump on - CLA has worked for me and I will definitely be buying from MP again."
