Forskolin is an all natural plant extract (coleus forskohlii) used to increase intracellular levels of cAMP and therefore cause fat burning and increased energy levels. Studies show that coleus forskohlii stimulates lipolysis (breaking down of fats) in fat cells. Additionally, scientists at the Penn State University College of Medicine have found that many obese patients have lower than normal cAMP production. Coleus Forskohlii increases cAMP levels and therefore is an effective weight loss agent, especially for those with impaired cAMP production. Studies confirm this conjecture and it was also found that blood pressure levels trended lower during the trials. Coleus Forskohlii is a safe, useful adjunct to losing weight and maintaining normal body composition.
In the 1970s, researchers isolated a chemically active ingredient in the herb and called it forskolin. The research revealed that some components of forskolin include hypotensive (low blood pressure) and spasmolytic (muscle relaxant) properties. From 1981 to 2008, Forskolin was used in more than 18,000 in vitro and in vivo studies due to its effect on a key cell-regulating substance called cAMP (cyclic adenosine monophosphate). In one of these landmark studies, the basic mechanism of action of forskolin was deemed to be the activation and stimulation of an enzyme (adenylate cyclase) that increases levels of intracellular cAMP. (1) Decreased intracellular cAMP levels can often lead to the development of several adverse medical conditions, such as asthma, angina, hypertension and some skin conditions like psoriasis, so the stimulation of this compound may be beneficial in preventing and treating these conditions.
