Summary of Our Essential Elements CLA Review
Essential Elements CLA looks has promise for people looking to cut weight and build a lean body. This product is made in the USA in a cGMP certified facility. It also undergoes third-party quality and safety checks.
However, the lack of customer reviews makes it difficult to attest to its effectiveness or potency. Also, while Essential Elements has a high concentrations of CLA ((80%) there other products out there that have a higher concentration. Finally, this product is very expensive compared to other CLA products on the market.
If you want an average product that is good enough, Essential Elements CLA, could be your choice. However, if you are looking for a supplement that delivers, and considers your wallet, keep looking.
