Bronson Nutritionals Tonalin CLA Review
The focus of our review today is a dietary supplement from Bronson Nutritionals called Tonalin CLA. The manufacturer of this product claim that daily use of CLA is associated with reduced visceral fat as well as increased muscle. This product might be particularly effective for individuals who suffer from diabetes because it also helps to lower blood sugar levels.
- Tonalin Safflower Oil – 3000mg
- Vegetable Glycerin
- Natural Caramel Color
- Purified Water
This supplement only offers a 78-84% concentration of conjugated linoleic acid. Similar products offer a guaranteed 85% concentration of the active ingredient in each serving. The manufacturer does not state the source of the gelatin so it is unclear if it is suitable for vegetarians to use.
Take two softgel capsules twice daily with food. This dose provides a daily dosage of 8000 mg of conjugated linoleic acid. This is too high an amount according to our research. An overdose of CLA can cause an accumulation of fat in the liver and the development of insulin resistance. The dosage instructions don’t specify if there is a preferred time of day to take the supplement, or whether it’s ok if you take all the capsules in one sitting.
You can buy this product from the manufacturer’s website for $14.99 per bottle of 120 softgel capsules. This is enough for a one month’s use when taking four capsules per day. There is currently a 40% off promotion on this product so the regular price is $24.99. There are no bulk buying options for this size bottle but there are other sizes of bottles available where you can buy multiple bottles for a discount. Shipping is free if you spend over $49.

Bronson Nutritionals Tonalin CLA Review – The Bottom Line
There are a number of encouraging features of Tonalin CLA. We liked that it is ame in the USA at an FDA cGMP registered facility. There is a strong one year long manufacturer’s guarantee that also allows you to return opened bottles of capsules. This supplement contains all-natural ingredients and is free from additives, preservatives, and fillers. Pricewise, this is a well positioned product costing only $14.99 per bottle of 120 softgel capsules which is a one month supply of capsules. However, we do have some concerns. The dosage instructions recommend a very high dosage of this supplement which means you are getting a potentially harmful daily dose of CLA in your body which can lead to serious side effects. There are no bulk buying options for this size bottle and no new customer incentives. Shipping is free but only if you spend $49 or more. The dosage instructions don’t specify if there is a preferred time of day to take the supplement, or whether it’s ok if you take all capsules at one sitting. This supplement only offers a 78-84% concentration of conjugated linoleic acid instead of 85% that other products have. The manufacturer does not state the source of the gelatin capsules so it is unclear if it is suitable for vegetarians to use. We suggest that you try to find an alternative CLA supplement with a safer daily dosage, that offers bulk buying discounts, and free shipping.
