    Powders VS Pills


    I have been looking into coleus forskholii for awhile as it is the main ingredient in the product Bio Forge, and a lot of people love it. Now I was simply wondering would there be any difference between taking the powder form of this that you can buy on NutraPlanet, rather than taking it in pill form? Or when something is taken into the body is it absorbed differently depending on whether it's a powder or pill?

    i think powder is absorbed better but im not sure. and the only difference i see is that the powder your gonna have to taste it unless you can mask it somehow or maybe the powder doesnt doesnt have taste.
    The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

    Yeah I figured there would be no difference. The taste however may be unknown.. Chocolate protein powder + additional chocolate syrup = goodnight sweet prince. If not then dayum that's strong!

    Yes there would be a difference. According to it's ingredient profile only 25% of it's actives are actually ForsLean®

    Supplement Facts
    Serving Size: 2 Capsules
    Servings per Container: 42
    Amount Per Serving % Daily Value
    ForsLean® (20% forskolin) 250 mg *
    Epimedium (40% icariin) 400 mg *
    Indole 3-Carbinol 300 mg *
    Opti-Zinc 50 mg *

    Otherwise, yes, NutraPlanet does have the bulk powder Coleus Forskholii (20%)

    Encapsulating a product is for convience wether that means taste or convience is measuring dosages.
