You've probably already heard of Forskolina, as it has found a place in many publications relating to weight loss properties. Dr. Oz even included him in his list of "top slimming supplements" thanks to his thermogenetic properties.
In our report, you will find out how this substance works, whether it is safe or not, and, above all, how effective it is when it comes to supporting the loss of weight.
Coleus forskohlia has attracted us to its potential to support weight loss and as an antioxidant.
Forskolin, also known as koleonol, is a compound that occurs naturally in Coleus forskohlia. It was used in cell physiology studies as a means of activating adenyl cyclase enzyme as well as stimulating intracellular level of cyclic AMP, or cAMP.
cAMP plays an important role in the transduction of the signal in the cells as well as has a direct influence on the way the cell reacts to various hormonal stimuli, which affects the function of the hypothalame-supervisor-adverse axis system.
What kind of Foskolin's message helps transmit to cells - it significantly enhances hormonal functions, stimulates the enzyme known as a sensitive lipase hormone.
If you have met the word "lipid", you probably realize that hormone-sensitive lipase has something to do with fat stored in the body and you are absolutely right!
It also appears that if it causes an increase in the production of cAMP, with a domino effect, it also causes an increase in the production of thyroid hormone, which also stimulates metabolism and significantly promotes fat burning.
Although all this may seem a bit complicated, we should all know that Forskolin stimulates the body to produce lipolytic enzymes or lipid burning enzymes, as well as to produce hormones that are responsible for burning fats.
All this sounds great for those of us who want to lose weight, but let us deepen our knowledge to see if it actually translates into real weight loss.
The results of the first study, which we present in 2005, were published in the Journal of Obesity Research. They concerned body mass and hormonal lesions associated with overweight men's intake of forskoline.
This examination included a randomly selected group that was subjected to a double-blind test and a placebo group. The study lasted 12 weeks and included 30 people taking 250 mg of 10 % of Forskoline extract twice a day.
The data from the study is very promising, with the following results for subjects:
Significant decrease in fat in the body and total body weight
Significant increase' of non-fatty body weight; including
Changes in bone mass, increase in bone density
Significant increase "of free testeron levels
All this indicates that Forskolin is not only a weight loss supplement, but is also a natural way to stimulate testerone levels in men, resulting in fat loss and fat free muscle mass.
A group of researchers conducting research has published the following statement:"The results of research indicate that forskolin is a therapeutic agent in the management and treatment of obesity.
Research on the results of the action of the forskoline in women is even more interesting. Let's start with a publication in 2005 from the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition.
Although "no significant differences" were not noticed and it was very interesting that Forskolin "held back the growth of body weight," so it can be concluded from this that the use of a rational diet and a good exercise plan is enough to keep the weight at stake.
Some of the subjects have also noticed a decrease in fatigue and hunger, so the same can be significant for people who use a low-calorie diet.
In addition, scientists also noted that "no clinically relevant interactions have been observed in the markers of metabolism, lipids in blood, muscle and liver enzymes, electrolytes, red blood cells, hormones (insulin, TSH, T3 I T4), heartbeat rhythm, blood pressure and anything else that would be found in weekly reports on side effects".
This indicates that there are no side effects in Forskolina's action, which makes this supplement safe in managing body weight for the population using it.
Many people suffer from what we call' persistent fat'. In men, it can be found in the lower abdomen regions and in the "Tyre" regions, and in women it is particularly stubborn on the hips and thighs.
The elimination of obese places has been identified as a myth and rejected by many. However, a series of studies was carried out on the topical oil, which included Forskolin. This study was described and evaluated by the Journal of Obesity Research in 1995, ro.
