Forskolin is a natural supplement that works with the body to utilize stored up fat, to convert it to energy. This all natural supplement is grown in India and produced from the root of the Coleus Forskohlii. Known for its contribution to a healthy body composition, by boosting Metabolism and breaking down fat cells, to help aid in the weight loss process.
Many studies have investigated the effects of forskolin on fat metabolism.
Most of them are test-tube experiments or animal studies, so the result may not be applicable to humans.
Put simply, forskolin stimulates the release of stored fat from fat cells. The same thing happens whenever the body needs to use body fat for energy.
On its own, the release of stored fat is not enough to promote weight loss – it needs to be accompanied by a calorie deficit.
In other words, for weight loss to happen, energy expenditure (calories out) must exceed energy intake (calories in).
Weight loss supplements can support a calorie deficit by:
Reducing efficiency of digestion.
Increasing metabolic rate (fat burning).
As far as we know, forskolin does not cause any of these things to happen.
However, clinical trials in humans have provided some promising results. It appears that forskolin may promote fat loss while preserving muscle mass.
