EFA/CLA with fat burner

Is there any point to taking an EFA/CLA supplement along with a fat burner?

Of course. The use of a thermogenic doesn’t cut out the need for essential fats in the diet.

Um, yeah, because Essential Fatty Acids are called essential for a reason, they’re needed by the body for important cellular functions and they’re not produced by our body alone. Plus, most people really don’t get that many omega-3’s and there’s a lot of growing evidence that they may be important for a vast range of health aspects. So, taking EFA’s with a fat burner (a misnomer, by the way) is like taking a multi-vitamin or eating a balanced diet with a fat-burner. Still essential for optimal health.
