Forskolin (Coleus Forskohlii) - Weight-Loss, Side-Effects, Obesity, Testosterone, Dose - Page 1
by Dusty R. Green, M.Ed.

As seen on the Dr. Oz Show

Forskolin (coleus forskohlii) has been implicated in the scientific literature as a weight loss supplement and lean muscle promoter.  In addition, it has shown to be helpful with leukemia, high blood pressure (hypertension), asthma, low testosterone, eczema, psoriasis, angina, and obesity ... virtually side effects free.

In a study published in Obesity Research1, forskolin (coleus forskohlii) was shown to increase bone mass and free testosterone levels while significantly lowering body fat percentages in overweight and obese men.  During the 12-week trial, those taking forskolin resulted in a change in bone mass compared with the placebo group (p < 0.05).  In addition, there was a trend toward suggesting an increase in lean body mass in the forskolin group compared to the placebo group (p = 0.097).  Positive side effects of free testosterone levels significantly increased in the forskolin group compared with the placebo group (p < 0.05).

The actual change in serum total testosterone concentration was not significantly different among groups, but it increased 16.77 + 33.77% in the forskolin group compared with a decrease of 1.08 + 18.35% in the placebo group.

In another study, scientists at the Penn State University College of Medicine2 found that Forskolin might be an effective weight loss agent ... especially for those with impaired cAMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate) production.  Decreased intracellular levels of cAMP (cellular cyclic AMP) can include asthma, eczema, psoriasis, angina, obesity, hypertension and the negative side effects associated with these conditions.  Many obese people have lower than normal cAMP production.  Based on these findings along with in vitro studies (in the lab), scientists theorized that forskolin may be a safe, side effects free, useful adjunct to weight loss and maintaining normal body composition.

These results may indicate that forskolin may be a weight loss and lean mass agent along with supporting healthy testosterone levels.

This ancient medicinal plant possesses unique biological activity.  The basic mechanism of action of forskolin is the activation of an enzyme, adenylate cyclase, which increases cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) in cells.  Cyclic AMP is perhaps one of the most important cell-regulating compounds in the body.  Once formed it activates many other enzymes involved in diverse cellular functions.3
