Forskolin is harvested from the roots of an herb very closely related to Mint. After Clinical trials, researchers discovered forskolin helps promote the breakdown of stored fats in animal and human fat cells. And, it can help release fatty acids from adipose tissue, which gives You increased thermogenesis, and this results in loss of body fat and leaner body mass.
What is Coleus forskohlii?
Coleus forskohlii, which is commonly known as Forskolin, is indigenous to Ayurvedic Medicine. It is a perennial herb that has fleshy, fibrous roots.
It grows wild in the warm subtropical temperate places in Thailand, Burma and India. Very Recently, Coleus forskohlii was recognized as the only known plant source of the diterpene, Forskolin, which is an adenylate cyclase activator. This is an enzyme involved in the production (cAMP).
Cyclic Adenosine Monophosphate, or (cAMP), induces a chain of biochemical events that trigger metabolic processes and diet induced thermogenesis, thereby providing the means to maintain a healthy body composition and lean body mass level.
