    New Forskolin Study


    A third human trial demonstrating body recomposition effects from forskolin? Yes please.

    This time, it was done in totally normal, fairly young volunteers.

    Two things to note:

    This was 8 weeks at my favorite dose of 100mg.

    Secondly, due to the 10% extract, 1/5 of the participants had to drop out due to GI issues.

    In 8 weeks, subjects lost an extra >4 lbs of pure fat mass over baseline and 0.9 lbs LBM. Since they were not weight training, weight loss that is 80% fat mass in NORMAL volunteers is extremely impressive and likely actually indicative of a muscle-sparing effect (demonstrated in other studies).

    Moral of the story:

    Forskolin is good. 50mg is the lowest proven dose; 100mg, my favorite dose, is now backed by science.

    Get a high quality, high % extract. It will limit GI issues while maximizing active constituents for fat loss and such.

    This is great. I think this is something I'm going to continue to cycle on and off of for the foreseeable future. Just hope that the price doesn't go up.

    Curious as to your dose timing at 100 mg Coop, are some times better than others? Currently taking 50 mg upon waking, 25 before lunch and 25 pre workout

    Almost linked you to this study when I saw the write up on Ergo Log a couple days ago. Glad to see a study done at 100mg.

    When people mention staple supplements (multi, fish oil, creatine, b-Alanine), I think forksolin and betaine anhydrous should be mentioned in the same breath. Body composition and/or performance data in repeated human trials

    Good to see another positive forksolin study, the ingredient is underrated.

    Good stuff. I can attest that of all the herbal supps I have tried, only Forskohlin and Anabeta gave me impressive recomp effects when training and being on a "slightly cleaner than average guy" type diet.

    Just ordered 500g of Betaine and am stoked to experiment with higher doses.

    I just hope the price doesn't go up. With the popularity increasing that is what usually happens.

    I was actually just thinking about that yesterday. TMG has found its way to always be in my stash and my client recommendations quite frequently over the last year or so (forskolin already had that status for me). Nice to see more data on both of these recently since I already recommend them a ton.

    I honestly have no idea. It may be that you simply have less bulk in your stools (less fiber) so the diarrhea manifests more rampantly. But nothing about low-carbs would mechanistically interfere with the means by which forskolin induces GI distress

    any idea how much F95 is in ABE per full dose (4 caps)? or even Oxy AF (2 caps)? Would it be safe to assume they are both at 50 mgs each per daily dose?

    I would guess that in a days serving of ABE, it contains 50mg Forskolin. 100% guess.

    That's what I'm also guessing. On separate cycles Ive used ABE and F95 and for my next one after reading that many ppl dose upwards of 100mg of F95 without GI distress I'll probably be using this dosing scheme.

    It's actually ~ 350 milligrams. I just got off the phone with the company and a rep confirmed it. I believe her actual words were "bout tree fitty"

    I have ulcerative tissue and tolerate F95 perfectly well (apart from the very first two days when I started it).

    I do not recommend using it though. I just thought I would add personal feedback as I am in a similar situation.

    I would just assume there's enough Forskolin in ABE to not need the Fors-95....

    Yeah, that is the point of having an "all in one". Or elite version, so you don't have to spend more on extra stuff.

    What if you formulated something to meet the studied dose and new research came out which supported an even higher dose?

    Just saying.

    In that case I would get the original anabeta and stack it with some F95. That way you could control your dosage better and probably save some moola.
