    Didnt read the study, but that's probably what made me emotional and bloated on it.

    No the study is claiming an increase in aromatase that would mean more estrogen. Although I have not read the study yet.

    It appears that anything that increases cAMP increases aromatase activity.

    Relevance to non-oncogenic cell lines? Nil. cAMP is a known second messenger in growth and potentiation of oncogenic cascades. It's similar to the study showing that arachidonic acid would make cancer worse...yes, it would, because certain cancers are associated with high ArA levels.

    Further, a trial in women noted no change in estrogen levels

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

    Using transformed cell lines as a predictor as to what happens in normal can be dangerous. It also wasn't the purpose of their study. They were just trying to see if this cell line was viable or not. Forskolin was just used to figure out a potential mechanism. Whether ingestion of forskolin would achieve these concentrations in vivo and whether it would result in increased estradiol levels in normal tissues isn't known.

    What is known that a study in healthy males (not cell lines) showed an increase in testosterone.

    Weren't they overweight though? Not trying to argue it is far and away my favorite compound anecdotally. That could skew results slightly because as they lose weight and abdominal fat test would likely increase.

    The mechanism of T elevation is through the testes and various enzymes

    I think he was going for the "higher levels of adipose tissue (% BMI) are correlated with a propensity for higher individual's rates of estrogen as opposed to healthy BF ranges..." Not necessarily speaking in terms of natural test production.

    I could be wrong though, he DID go full retard...

    Haha yes that is what I was alluding to all the while completely disregarding the MOA of forskolin. Guise, forgive me.

    Wow I didn't know people were experiencing E related side effects, I never had a problem even at 100 mg. Could explain the anabolic effects it has on bone.

    Alphamax uses 50mg 95% Forksolin but we pair it with 75mg Arimistane(among other things), so may be a good option especially if you stack with Forskolin-95 to get high forksolin doses.
