Forskolin was featured on Dr. Oz TV show. Like Garcinia Cambogia, Forskolin is also effective as a weight loss supplement. Long ago, Garcinia was very popular and bought by myriad of people across the globe. Now, it has been outnumbered by the latest, most prominent weight loss supplement, pure Forskolin.
What do science and experts say about Forskolin?
Forskolin is herb extracted from Coleus Forskohlii, which is a plant belonging to a mint family. It promotes the growth of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (AMP) that increases the contraction of heart muscles. The evidence for that matter is yet unknown since it is still preliminary.
Nevertheless, a speculation arose from experts. They think the production of cyclic AMP could affirmatively affect the other cells in the body, such as thyroid cells and platelets. It could prevent platelet adhesion and aggregation. In addition, it could also prevent metastatic breast cancer and tumor cell growth. That said, these hypotheses are still analyzed whether the increase of cyclic AMP is safe for those purposes.
Experts from the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database describe pure Forskolin as perhaps effective to be used as an inhaled treatment for asthma and as an intravenous medicine for idiopathic cardiomyopathy. It has also been said that it probably reduces intraocular pressure except glaucoma. In the study, the use of Forskolin is possibly safe.
Also, in the aforementioned study, the experts did not mention about weight loss. Much of the researches today do not focus on pure Forskolin as a weight loss supplement. But how come it has been introduced on the Dr. OZ TV show and bought by many people? How true is it as an effective fat loss?
The Scientific Evidence behind Forskolin For Weight Loss
A certain scientific trial assessed the body composition of 15 men for twelve weeks with the intake of pure Forskolin. According to the study, men who took Forskolin showed significant effects in their body composition. This means that they lost body fat mass, and the lost fat was replaced with somewhat improved strong lean muscle mass.
A non-fat loss related study showed great results in men who took Forskolin. Experts found that the subjects who took pure Forskolin gained an increased free testosterone levels and bone density. For that matter, they believed that men will be benefited more than women in line with the intake of Forskolin.
Dr. Oz also proved that Forskolin worked for weight loss. He resembled it to a fire burning the fat in the human body.
While there are not enough evidences of Forskolin research for weight loss, it seems that it works wonders for reducing body fat. No adverse effects were mentioned in all trials and studies. But individuals who plan to take Forskolin should always consult their doctor before taking it.
