About science behind CLA(conjugated linoleic acid): When you consume fat that your body does not need to use for energy, it is absorbed by fat cells with the help of an enzyme called lipoprotein lipase. CLA blocks this enzyme and diverts unused fat to your muscle cells. The CLA then activates another enzyme which helps your muscle to burn this fat, especially during exercise.

Regarding the difference between these two brands (and other CLA-containing brands): I'd say the difference is not significant.
