Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Just to be clear, by CLA are you referring to conjugated linoleic acid? And is your intent is using CLA as a weight/fat loss supplement?

Thats correct conjugated linoleic fatty acid. I really want to use it as "anti-atherogenic"
I understand, thank you for that information. Biochemically CLA is CLA, so on a chemical level, yes CLA from vegetable oil is just as “good” as that from dairy and meat. That assumes that your body absorbs each kind equally well. So for instance, if you have no problems digesting meat, dairy and oily foods, then you’re good to go. However, let’s say you were lactose intolerant. Then I would say don’t use the dairy form. Or if you had pancreas and gall bladder problems and had trouble digesting fats, then I would say avoid the vegetable oil forms. I hope that is clear and makes sense. Can I help with anything else?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
