Forskolin (from Coleus Forskohlii) is the powerful active found in the herb Coleus forskohlii. Forskolin is believed to improve body composition both through increasing lean mass and decreasing fat mass.* Forskolin activates the enzyme adenylate cyclase, which in turn increases cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) levels.* The increase in cAMP activates hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) which breaks down stored triglycerides (bodyfat) and releases fatty acids so they can be oxidized and body fat can potentially be decreased.*
Forskolin > Activates Adenylate Cyclase > Increases cAMP > Activates HSL > Increases Fatty Acid Release*
In order to lose body fat, fatty acids must be released from triglycerides stored as fat tissue. Forskolin encourages the release of fatty acids from fat tissue allowing them to be burned for energy, potentially leading to a decrease in body fat.*
Forskolin's ability to increase cAMP is also believed to have thyroid stimulating properties.* Thyroid hormones govern ones overall metabolism. Increasing thyroid output will accelerate ones metabolic rate and can lead to fat loss. In addition, it is believed Forskolin may increase testosterone levels in men, but more research on this is needed.*
Forskolin doesn't appear to have strong nervous system stimulating properties, making it a great ingredient to stack with other fat burners such as Primaforce Caffeine, Lean Green, and Yohimbine HCL. Unlike stimulants which cause vasoconstriction, Forskolin is a vasodilator. Blood flow is an important and often overlooked aspect of fat loss as blood flow to fat tissue, is vital to the transportation of fatty acids to areas where they can be burned.*
Forskolin is an effective supplement to improve overall body composition by supporting fat loss and lean mass gains.* Forskolin supports thyroid output, is a vasodilator, and may increase testosterone levels in men. Forskolin stacks well with other thermogenics and can help enhance your results.*
