    Coleus Forskohlii


    Patrick,

    What's your opinion and experience with coleus forskohlii? Is the research behind it any good(is the testosterone boosting study funded by the forskolin patent holder=biased?)?

    Isn't forslean, the standardized extract well known for raising cAMP? Also, doesn't it help with mitigating blood glucose levels as well or is that a result of the cAMP being upregulated? I know I read this before I just don't know for sure so I figured you may chime in. It is so commonly included in test boosters and some diet type pills but I wonder how effective it really is and what MOA is relevant to say helping with fat metabolism?
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

    yeah its used in research to raise cAMP. I suppose that is where its MOA in fat burning is supposed to lie

    you are privy to the same human studies done on the stuff that i am. i am sure you have read them and if you have not you can find them and read them. some appear favorable but nothing monumental. if you want a definintive yes or no on the stuff i am afraid you arent going to find that. i know uncertainty makes life difficult and not knowing if forskolin is worth taking can be a very distracting thing in our lives. its right up there on choosing whether to run a yellow light and which flavor of mochachino to order

    You're hilarious but I get your point through the sarcasm. It's not the end of the world for no definitive answer just wondered if you knew something that I didn't. What is most funny is the amazing write ups for supplements claiming it is the best thing ever when in reality most of what is stated is hard to definitively back up. Anyways that is all I need, thanks.
