Schooling on Forskolin


Thank you, Dr. Oz, for telling so many people about the wonderful benefits of the Ayurvedic herbal medicine called Forskolin. It’s an extract of the Coleus plant, the beautiful species that’s so popular in homes and gardens. Dr. Oz presents Forskolin metabolic booster, and it is that. Here I will add more depth and breadth to that description so you can see if it interests you.

In conjunction with a dietary regimen that Dr. Oz describes in his “Naked Diet” program, Forskolin can help to increase one’s metabolic rate so you can burn fat more efficiently. Most American adults want to use this because an increased metabolism will reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Like many herbal medical plants that have been respected for centuries in ancient societies, Forskolin is a broad-acting, potent medicine. It has been widely studied in modern medicine and found beneficial for allergies, respiratory problems, cardiovascular diseases, glaucoma, psoriasis, hypothyroidism, and weight loss.

That last benefit is of great interest to many people, particularly physicians helping patients with obesity-related problems and bodybuilders seeking to sculpt more perfect bodies. Because this concern involves such a huge market, studies on this plant and its biochemistry have been well-funded.

Naturopathic doctors and other fans of herbal medicine have found this herb to have additional benefits:

  • Inhibition of colon cancer growth and improved survival statistics.
  • Reduction of glaucoma by stimulating adenylate cyclase activity and increasing cAMP, which regulates the enzymes required to move fluid out of the eye.
  • Significantly increased lean muscle mass, bone mass, and testosterone levels.
  • Vaso-dilation in the glandular and sub-dermal tissues where external fat accumulates.
  • Increasing the skin’s natural resistance to burning by UV light.
  • Reducing urinary tract infections by helping antibiotics kill the tough bacteria that cause them.

Forskolin as an extract or herbal concentrate is a strong natural medicine. As such, it can be misused and hurtful. Please work with a physician or provider who understands and has experience using herbal medicines. If you are an investigator or an experimental type of person, start with very small amounts and increase its use until you notice an effect. The body appreciates slow and gradual changes in its metabolism, and a sudden change can be traumatic. Your body will communicate to you what it feels about any trauma you inflict on it.

You will want to further support your body to get the great results that you hope for. Particularly, avoid stimulant herbs and foods during this trial period, and continue intelligent dietary and exercise choices that support your metabolic health.
