      I started taking Tonalin 4 months ago along with digestive enzymes after each meal. I have lost 12 pounds (only had 15 to loose). I never miss taking it!! It took about 6 weeks to really see the difference but, it works. Also, I have a constipation problem, taking Tonalin with the enzymes, I go to the bathroom within 1 hour...every time I eat!! for the first few weeks my stools were tary...it gets better. I am a R.N. and a Holistic Doctor recommended these to me :)also,If you have any stomach upset, just take 1 ginger Root capsule, it will take care of it until your body gets adjusted.

      This product did nothing for me. After taking it for one month, I did not notice any significant changes except black stool. So gross!! I will no longer be using this supplement.

      Black stool is one of the more serious side effects that can come from use of CLA and you should have ceased use and contacted your doctor immediately.

        Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Tonalin CLA 1,000 MG - 180 Softgels:

        After reading reviews, pros and cons, and doing my own research I tried Tonilan CLA. I found, in my research a common thread that those who didn't exericise or were generally not very active had the most negative reviews. Since this product is meant to increase the body's ability to metabolize and burn fat (it actually shrinks the fat cells keeping fat from expading them) it seemed logical that the more active person is the better result they would see. I was already working out daily; 30-45 min. of circuit training: cardio with 5 lb. weights. I noticed a definate impact within the first 3-5 days of using the CLA at the suggested dosage of three times per day with meals. I also started using Indole-3-Carbinol a few days later because I'm post menopausal and can become estrogen dominant causing that fatty settling around the lower stomach/hips/thighs area when y hormones shift (I only take the I3C once per day rather than the suggested twice). Once I added the I3C the results intensefied and continued to bring steady results as well as significantly reduce hot flashes. I then added, to my regular workout routine, a higher intensity cardio circuit training and was shocked at the rate the inches were coming off and even more, the definition in how my body was shaping; unlike my premenopausal state of being out or proportion (prior to menopause I wasn't overweight but neither was my torso shape defined as it is now, I was out of proportion; when menopause started, several years ago, I gained 2 sizes over the course of that time and now, in 2 1/2 months of regular cardio type exercise and using the CLA and I3C for a month of that time I am back in my size 4 and my clothes fit better than before, I'm porportioned better now).

        Was I having results prior to using CLA? Yes. Was the CLA benefit enhanced by the increase in cardio? Yes. Was I benefitting from CLA prior to adding I3C? Yes. The I3C isn't for everyone, it's for those who are estrogen dominant, mainly females and I found, personally, that using two per day, the recommended dose, was adjusting too much estrogen for me. It doesn't rid the body of excess estrogen, it just makes it metabolize differently so it's 1) not becoming harmful, cancerous and 2) not settling in those fat cells causing that out of proportaion stubborn belly/hip/thigh and butt fat...

        Bottm line: my experience with CLA is that it does work very well with proper diet and exercise; it's not a quick fix but it does work as an enhancement and tool for fat redistriution and muscle toning bringing better definition. I don't count calories; I simply eat a proper balance of carbs, potein and fat (reduced fat foods as often as possible); I also make a protein shake after working out using Plant Fusion, a vegan, plant based protein powder (it's different in taste so use a banana and a few strawberries with some ice in a blender to make it palatable). The only thing I changed when I started exercising was using reduced fat when possible and using Sprouted Grains flourless bread. Cutting out processed flours, excess fat and never ever using fake sweetners is key for balancing hormones. If I use sugar, which is rare, I use pure coconut palm sugar. I also use Extra virgin cold pressed coconut oil and/or cold pressed olive oil rather than other oils.

        One last thing: several reviews I read on the internet, by women, listed a con of this product causing issues with menstrual cycles. It is made of safflower seed oil which has historically been used as a natural way to treat amenorrhea (absence of menstruation). That wasn't an issue for me because of my age and menopause.

          I used this product as directed, with a mostly healthy diet, and regular exercise, but did not see any results either good or bad. It may have helped me maintain my weight, but I was maintaining already so I don't really know. I didn't notice any bad side effects either.

            I was using for a long time (years) FAT BLOCKERS from other supplement store. I wanted to try a new one since your are supposed to rotate and I found this one on vitamin shop. Is very accurate , affordable and does the job. I exercise regularly(6 days a week). I would definitely buy this again.

              I'm giving this 2 stars bc someone told me they lost a lot of weight with it. Made me really sick though! The first 1000 mg I took (on a full stomach) gave me a painful headache and feeling of nausea that lasted until the following day!! I've never experienced such a thing with any other supplement I've taken over the years! I'm now taking another CLA brand and I get no headaches even with 2000 mg at a time!
              Even though it looks like both products contain the same ingredients, the other brand gave me no side effects. Bottom line, everyone reacts different to different brands so try different ones!

                  I took the product daily and am still taking the product daily i take one tab 3 times a day and have yet to see a drastic weight loss. I have been on this for almost a month so i am hopeful for the results. I have gained weight but i also increased my workout so i dont feel i am gaining fat but feel more solid with muscle weight. my diet has not changed but my workouts have increased instead. will continue to use.

                      This didn't work in assisting in weight loss but I did notice that it helped somewhat with preventing weight gain. I used this for about a week until I noticed my face was breaking out in cystic acne HORRIBLY and my skin became really oily. After I stopped taking this I noticed my skin starting to get back to normal.

                      My skin is more important than needing to take a pill to assist in weight loss

I kept my diet the same and my exercise regiment the same. I've taken this product for one month and have not lost any weight. I continued to fluctuate between 170 and 169 lbs the entire month.

                            Started using product 1 capsule with each meal as directed. NO RESULTS after 6 weeks. Started using 2 capsules with each meal. Still, NO RESULTS after additional 3 weeks. I'm not heavy @ 162 lbs, 5'9". I desire to reduce waistline from 34 to 32. I exercise regularly...even doing planks. Tonalin Cla has not help me at all.

                                Just finished a bottle and I can tell no difference. I Crossfit at least 5 times a week and eat healthy usually 6 days a week. I wouldn't buy again.

                                  It's hard to tell just how well these types of supplement really work, however.. after reading the so-called positives of CLA, I've been using these for a few years, take 1 after each meal and are happy with my results.. with zero side effects. I have recommended this product to friends.

                                                Eat right and exercise......you'll see a difference. When I slacked off with doing right I started to regain what I lost. If you don't move your body you won't get results. At first I took 2 pills per day, then I upped my intake to 4 a day. 2 for breakfast then 2 at dinner time.

                                                    Someone mentioned taking 2 pills upon waking up, before going to bed and right before working out and it has done wonders for me that way. Just be careful, you'll go through the bottle quick.

                                                      I said that I would do an update after week 6 and it definately works. This product has reduced the fat around my obliques a lot. I still have some stubborn fat in my middle section, but it'll go away if I continue to eat low carb, eat sugar every once in a while and work out 6 days a week as I have for years. It's doesn't control your appetite, so you'll need something for that. A Vitamin Shoppe guy told me he took these and a weight loss supplement, but first ask your doctor if it's ok. I never ask, because my I don't have any health issues that prevent me from taking them.

                                                        Tonalin CLA has been very helpful in losing weight for last three months, and I will continue to take them until I will have reached and maintain the ideal weight. I exercise and maintain a vegetarian diet; however, I still have cravings for starches, sugars, and carbs. They are quite difficult for me to control at times. Regardless of the intake recommendation, I prefer to take one capsule in the morning and again one capsule in the afternoon. I of course take each with the meal.

                                                        After only two days of taking this I have had SEVERE headaches.

                                                        Is this normal? I took 3 pills a day. The pain was so bad. HAs anyone else evperienced this? Is it normal?

                                                          I'll give it 5 stars for now, cause it seems to be working. The guy at the Vitamin Shoppe and a friend stated they've taken them and they do work and I take their word. Since the Vitamin Shoppe has a sale this month, I bought two bottles. Today is day 4 and my muscles feel tighter when I do weights, so I guess it's working. I've lost 20lbs thus far by eating low carb and exercising 6x a week, but I want to lose 14 more lbs that's in my middle section, obliques and a little in my thighs. Will do another update in 5 more weeks.

I am tiny as it is but always had some fat around my stomach that I could not get rid of. This has completely tighten me up and my clothes fit so much better. I recommended working out and with this product because it will really improve your results.

Also going to start taking CO Q 10. Wow, seems like a lot.

I actually have energy after the workout, sometimes I would be really sore but now I still get sore but I feel so much stronger. Love the product and will continue using

The only update I have is that you need to be mindful of the balance of your Omega 3's to your Omega 6's. Tonalin is rich in Omega 6's which can cause inflammation in the body if out of balance with Omega 3's. If I missed my Omega 3 dose, I had joint soreness the following day. Other than that - I am still sold on Tonalin.

I have lost 12 pounds (only had 15 to loose). I never miss taking it!! It took about 6 weeks to really see the difference but, it works. Also, I have a constipation problem, taking Tonalin with the enzymes, I go to the bathroom within 1 hour...every time I eat!! for the first few weeks my stools were tary...it gets better. I am a R.N. and a Holistic Doctor recommended these to me :)also,If you have any stomach upset, just take 1 ginger Root capsule, it will take care of it until your body gets adjusted.

It's been keeping my body fat under control. I've been very satisfying with the product. Again, it has been keeping my body lean all year long with no side effect for my body type....Best thing is check with your doctor prior to use it. You might be allergic to it!

I recently started taking it again and now whenever I take it, my body rejects it and I throw up until the pill is out of my system. Was the formula changed recently?
                                                                                Trey A on Dec 31, 2013

Getting rid of materials through the intake or output in a non-normal fashion usually indicates that the body needs to get rid of it ASAP. You may want to mention this to your primary care physician to make sure nothing else is going on internally that is interfering with your body's ability to handle the supplement. The question I would pose: Is it the supplement or a fortunate early warning?

                                                                                Thanks!

I take them with water about 20-30 minutes before I eat. It gives your body time to absorb it and enter your blood stream. I hope this helps!
