Today we decided to review MusclePharm’s CLA Core, a weight-loss supplement consisting of Conjugated Linoleic Acid, Avocado Oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Manufacturers claim that their product is of high quality and purity. They stated it can help support healthy appetite levels, promote healthy metabolism, fat burning and help to build lean muscles. They also promise it can keep cholesterol levels in a healthy range, so we decided to research how true everything is.


The manufacturer does not use synthetic ingredients, which we find to be a good thing and a bonus. The product contains Avocado Oil, which is a good antioxidant, promotes blood vessel integrity and moisturizes skin and hair. One serving contains 1000 mg of CLA, and recommended daily serving surpasses 2000 mg. Virgin Olive Oil keeps the blood sugar levels at a healthy range and serves as antioxidant.


It is recommended to take this product as a dietary supplement and recommended serving size is one or two capsules per day, which they claim helps dieters to lose more weight. One important benefit for busy men and women is portability. It comes in two different packages, one consisting of 90 capsules, and another of 180 servings. The supplement should be consumed only after meals, in the morning, noon and at night with the dinner. Prior to any other kind of consummation, a doctor should be consulted. The product comes in the form of softgel capsules.

Possible Side-Effects

The manufacturer recommends not to exceed the recommended serving suggestion, but if you do want to try something else, they have stated to please consult a doctor first. The product is not for use by individuals younger than 18 years. Also, it should not be consumed if you are pregnant, nursing or contemplating pregnancy. Every person should consult their physician prior to using this product if taking any over the counter medications, and even prescription drugs, or if you have some heart condition, diabetes, thyroid disease, high blood pressure or any other serious illness. The capsules can hurt children so it should be kept far away from them.


The 90 capsule pack costs $21.99, and you can purchase bigger one consisting of 180 capsules for $29.99. As you can see, the bigger package is affordable and better deal if you are planning on taking the supplement longer.


We encountered information that the manufacturer offers a money-back guarantee, but could not find it on their website. There are some favorable customer reviews on their website and all over the Internet.


The product is natural, with good oils added. It is pretty affordable, and the comments on how it does the job it is supposed to do are mostly positive. We have found some comments on how bad and slow customer service is. Some users have reported increased cramping from the supplement when doing cardio training. The capsule is made from gelatine, so it is not suitable for vegetarians. If you are vegan, there are affordable and good vegan weight loss capsules out there, we suggest you to try something else.
