Forskolin is a very promising ingredient for fat burning.
Forskolin is an interesting alternative to stimulant based fat burning ingredients like ephedrine, yohimbe, and similar compounds. Forskolin acts differently. Instead of revving up your system, forskolin actually activate the enzymes responsible for fat burning. Forskolin increases the levels of cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) within cells. cAMP is a signal for the body to turn on its fat burning enzymes.
Healthy thyroid function is critical to fat burning
The primary function of the thyroid is to produce two hormones called T3 and T4, which control metabolism. One way forskolin appears to help increase metabolism is by stimulating the thyroid to produce T3 and T4. T3 and T4 increase metabolism, which increases the amount of calories that the body burns. T3 and T4 act on the most basic level called the basal metabolic rate, which is the minimum amount of calories needed to keep the body functioning, e.g. “keep the lights on” or “keep the engine in idle”. Forskolin appears to mimic the effects of hormone that stimulates the thyroid to produce T3 and T4. In lab tests Forskolin was shown to be able to stimulate fat burning in cells subjected to low levels of T3 and T4. Forskolin was also shown in the lab to be able to stimulate thyroid cells to release T3 and T4.
Forskolin increased fat burning in men.
A study published in 2005, showed that forskolin caused changes in the hormone levels and body composition in overweight and obese men. The objective of the study was to examine if forskolin increased fat burning, improved body composition, boosted testosterone levels, increased metabolism, and lowered blood pressure in men who were overweight or obese. The subjects were randomized in to two groups, placebo and forskolin, and followed for 12 weeks. The forskolin study was double-blinded so that the researchers and the participants did not know if the received forskolin or not.
The results showed that the forskolin group had an increase in fat burning and in lean body mass. There was a slight increase in the testosterone levels in the men receiving forskolin, which may account for the lean body mass improvements and fat burning effects. Although the effect were modest, the researchers reported that forskolin showed real promise.
Forskolin kept women from gaining weight
A study published in 2005, showed that forskolin caused changes in the body composition and is safe to use in mildly overweight women. The results showed that there were no significant differences in calorie intake, while the placebo group gained weight during the study, the forskolin group did not. In fact, there was a trend towards a reduction in body mass and fat mass in the forskolin group. Subjects in the forskolin group reported less fatigue, hunger, and more fullness. The forskolin group also did not report significant levels of side-effects.
Forskolin applied topically promoted fat burning under the skin
Three studies were performed by researchers at Johnson & Johnson Consumer group in France. They explored the effects of a topical cosmetic slimming product, which contained both forskolin.
In the first study, researchers tested effects of caffeine and forskolin on skin in the lab. They applied the compounds to the skin to observe their effects. Both caffeine and forskolin stimulated glycerol production in the skin. Glycerol production is the first step in fat burning, and an increase in glycerol production is a byproduct of fat burning.
The lab study was followed by a randomized, placebo-controlled, clinical trial where they measured the effect of the topical cream on body fat around the waist, thighs, buttocks, and other problem areas. They found that significant fat burning had occurred leading to reductions in body girth and cellulite. While one cannot definitely say that the results seen in a topical study proves an effect when the product is taken orally, it does add another data point of support.
Advantages of forskolin over other fat burning supplements
The most common type of fat burning supplements are stimulants, which promote or enhance nervous stimulation. All stimulants make you jittery or rev you up. The main challenge with these ingredients is that they tend to increase the heart rate and raises blood pressure. These increases are more pronounced in the products containing one of these stimulants and caffeine. Long-term elevation of blood pressure and heart rate raises the risk of cardiovascular problems and stroke. In fact, almost all of the drugs or supplements that raised blood pressure have been pulled off the market due to safety issues.
To be effective an effective in fat burning, a weight loss pill doesn’t have to raise a person’s blood pressure. There are supplements like forskolin, which do not. Anvanca uses forskolin and another non-stimulant green tea to increase metabolism and to enhance fat burning without over stimulating the body.
