Forskolin is the powerful active found in the herb Coleus forskohlii. Forskolin is believed to improve body composition both through increasing lean mass and decreasing fat mass. Forskolin activates the enzyme adenylate cyclase, which in turn increases cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) levels. The increase in cAMP activates hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) which breaks down stored triglycerides (bodyfat) and releases fatty acids so they can be oxidized and body fat can be decreased.
Forskolin > Activates Adenylate Cyclase > Increases cAMP > Activates HSL > Increases Fatty Acid Release
In order to lose body fat, fatty acids must be released from triglycerides stored as fat tissue. Forskolin increases the release of fatty acids from fat tissue allowing them to be burned for energy, leading to a decrease in body fat.
Forskolinís ability to increase cAMP is also believed to have thyroid stimulating properties. Thyroid hormones govern ones overall metabolism. Increasing thyroid output will accelerate ones metabolic rate and lead to fat loss. In addition, it is believed Forskolin may increase testosterone levels in men, but more research on this is needed.
Forskolin doesnít appear to have strong nervous system stimulating properties, making it a great ingredient to stack with other fat burners such as Primaforce Caffeine, Lean Green, and Yohimbine HCL. Unlike stimulants which cause vasoconstriction, Forskolin is a vasodilator. Blood flow is an important and often overlooked aspect of fat loss as blood flow to fat tissue, especially stubborn fat areas, is vital to the transportation of fatty acids to areas where they can be burned.
Primaforce Fat-Burning Stack
The recommended dosage for Forskolin is 50-100mg per day. We recommend taking 1 capsule Forskolin 50 (along with your fat-burner or other thermogenics) pre-workout and 6-8 hours before/after your pre-workout dose (depending on if you workout in the morning or evening):
- 1 Primaforce Forskolin 50
- 1 Primaforce Caffeine (200mg)
- 1 Primaforce Lean Green (500mg)
- 1 Primaforce Yohimbine HCL (2.5mg)
Forskolin is an effective supplement to improve overall body composition by supporting fat loss and lean mass gains. Forskolin supports thyroid output, is a vasodilator, and may increase testosterone levels in men. Forskolin stacks well with other thermogenics and can help enhance your results.
