Dr. Oz has talked about it and many celebrities have made claims that it has helped them lose a lot of weight, but does it really work? Many of us will try anything for weight loss and most of us want that quick fix. Firstly, let me say that I have never tried a single pill without any dietary changes and lost weight and believe me I have tried them all. However, some of them show much promise for weight loss but only alongside a healthful diet. If I had a magic pill, I would be rich and retired, sipping Mai Tai’s on a beach in my skimpy bikini (sigh) but there is no such thing.
We have sold Forskolin in our stores (nutrition house) for many years and many of our customers have said that it helps them to lose weight. It is added into many body building products as it helps to increase testosterone (up to 30%) and build muscle as well as burn fat. Forskolin has shown marked ability to affect muscle/fat ratios in the body and regulate blood lipid levels. As well it helps promote healthy hormone levels which in turn will help you lose weight.
Forskolin is a natural compound found in the root of Coleus Forskohlii, which is a purple-flowering botanical herb. It has been used for centuries in traditional Ayurveda medicine as a means to treat digestive issues, hypertension, chest pains, allergies, eczema, obesity, IBS, urinary tract infections, ‘advanced’ cancer, and even erectile dysfunction in men and it has been shown to help heal the heart.
It has very few reported side effects and is generally considered safe for use by nearly everyone.
If you want to try Forskolin, go for it! Just remember that if you want to lose weight, you still need to keep your carbs low, your protein moderate and your good fats high. Add MCT oil to your daily diet as a salad dressing, added to your protein shake or drizzled over your steamed veggies and you will lose weight even faster!
