It looks like the supplement Forskolin is here to stay. Studies have shown a great result without harmful side-effects. Forskolin acts as an agent to awaken sleeping cellular messengers for the purpose of raising thyroid hormone levels and testosterone production.
A recent study at the University of Kansas (Lawrence) showed that men who used the product for 12 weeks burned way more fat and created more lean muscle without a workout regimen while raising testosterone levels far higher than those patients using a placebo. Suddenly, the possibility of a new miracle pill for weight loss and muscle gain was revealed.
The action of Forskolin is to stimulate the enzyme called adenylate cyclase which increases a certain cellular messenger called cyclic AMP (cAMP). This little messenger delivers information to several different types of cells. It is nice to have this little guy in abundance. An active supply of cAMP is what stimulates the body to increase thyroid hormone levels and activate the burning of fatty tissues.
These messengers are normally in great supply when we are young, but seem to decrease when age hits a certain level. This whole process has just recently come to light. Research funds are inadequate at best. The new miracle pill for weight loss and muscle gain may wait until investors become aware of the marketability and for government approval.
To be fair, a form of the product has been on the market for some time without any runs on the product. It turns out that the marketed bottles have been so low in the active agent found in the herb that the effectiveness of the supplement has been greatly reduced. The current method of production for the common mans market is to simply grind up pieces of the dried plant, an herb called Coleus Forskohlii, bottle it, and send it on its way.
Such methods of distribution provide an inconsistent product with a very low effectiveness potential. In order to be effective, the freshly picked herb should be crushed and distilled to release the active ingredient which can then be distributed in pill form. This would activate the blessings of weight loss, lean muscle gain, and higher testosterone levels. Otherwise, it is just beneficial a product waiting to happen.
It will be interesting to see what form future marketing of this necessary agent will take. Will it be a full functioning and viable agent, or will it be a watered down version? It is a wait and see game now. Wait, see who is interested in making a huge profit, and see what restrictions the government chooses to put in place. The answers are in the bottle. We only need to wait for its delivery to find out what those are.
