Origin: Derived from the herb Coleus forskohlii which is typically found in Nepal, Thailand, and India.
Also Known As:
Coleus Forskohlii Extract contains the bioactive ingredient forskolin which is responsible for its health benefit. It has been used traditionally for skin, lung, and heart conditions.
Coleus forskohlii stimulates the production of a molecule called cyclic AMP (cAMP). In our body, cyclic AMP helps our cells talk to each other. When an increase or decrease in cAMP is detected, it acts as a signal that causes the body to do something. One of the things that cAMP does is tell our cells to increase in an enzyme called hormone sensitive lipase—which burns fat. cAMP might also seems to stimulate the release of thyroid hormone which also helps burn fat and calories.
