This product is not available directly for purchase on the manufacturer’s website. Sisu does provide a list of stores in which you can purchase their products both online in in-store, but all stores are in Canada. We had a difficult time navigating the online stores their listed, as many of them do not carry this specific product. We did find one store that carries Tonalin CLA, and at the time of writing was on sale for $29.98 (originally $36.48), not including shipping and handling.
Possible Side Effects
The manufacturer does not provide any information on potential side effects from taking Tonalin CLA. However, as with any other supplement, it is recommended you consult with your healthcare provider prior to use. If you experience any adverse reactions, discontinue use of this product immediately and seek medical care. If you are pregnant or nursing, under the age of 18, or take medications for other health conditions, speak with your healthcare provider before taking any supplement.
Sisu states that it is dedicated to producing the highest quality of products to promote good health. It does not, however, have any indication of money-back guarantees or satisfaction guarantees on its website. There is information on how to contact customer service, so we would recommend inquiring about product return/refund policies and guarantees.
The Bottom Line
Sisu’s Tonalin CLA has, the company says, been proven to promote fat loss and lean muscle gain, and increase energy expenditure. By taking 3 softgel capsules per day, consumers can expect a modest reduction in body fat. However, this product was difficult to locate for purchase, as it is not available directly on the manufacturer’s website. Because this is a Canadian product and most of the available stores are in Canada, shipping and handling may be quite expensive for consumers ordering outside of Canada. In addition, the manufacturer does not provide any guarantee of its product, making it difficult to determine the effectiveness of the product. With a lack of availability or any guarantees, we would recommend exploring other CLA options available on the market.
