Forskolin-95 GI distress

  1. Question Forskolin-95 GI distress


    Anyone else experienced this? This is on Synthetic Supplements' Forskolin-95. I did read other less reputable brands had this side effect. I'm on 100mg daily (x2 morning, x2 pre-workout), only been on it a week, and it's not pleasant, proper Hershey Squirts lol. Should I dial back dosage, or am I just a bad responder to this stuff? Anything else I could take to alleviate this problem?


  2. Depends.

  4. No, you see that was sort of a joke - Depends (as either "it depends" or "wear Depends").

    Now that we've dispensed with that - when I have GI issues with a supplement, I usually take it together with sodium bicarbonate and I no longer have fecal emergency.

  5. Try starting with a lower dose and see how you get on.

    I have an extremely sensitive stomach and 50mg per day is absolutely fine with me.

  6. Would I still see benefits from that lower dose? I heard 75-100mg was optimal for F95.

    FWIW - I use 50.

  8. 50mg falls in line with the original study on males.

    100mg was Cyrus's theory and the recent study to back it up.

  9. OK, I'll try with that see how I go. Meanwhile, I already have some stomach salts that I can use lol.

  10. I will be buying and using potassium bicarbonate shortly, but I use now sodium bicarb and it seems to offer some help, stomach-wise.

  11. Yeah the salts I have contain magnesium sulphate, sodium hydrogen carbonate and citric acid. Have used before for stomach upset and they work well.

  12. Agree with starting with a lower dose and work your way up. You could also try taking it with food and see if that helps.

  13. Yeah I've been having it on empty stomach, so that certainly can't have helped!

    I believe most do. I do.

  15. Yeah, I read that was the optimal way to take it... but if it's going to cause me upset, then clearly I'm going to get upset the worst this way.

  16. ahhh! I was just about to get the 95%.. my stool gets loose 2-3 weeks in with 20% forskolin 50mg.. the worst time is in the morning later in the day not so much!

  17. Starting at 50 mg should help a lot I have a sensitive stomach and going with a lower dose and working my way up helped me.

    The higher % extracts are reported better (not worse) for GI issues.

  19. Starting using 100mg (2x50mg) for 6 weeks without any problems. Took it with my Alphamine/AT2 doses.

    Then the last 2 weeks I had pretty bad GI distress on and off .
    Spend like 3-4 times a day in the bathroom, but it isn't really consisting.
    One day it's fine.. next day - get outta the way.

    Anyone else experienced this?

  20. I spread my doses out throughout the day. I take 2 caps pre-workout and that is the only one I take on an empty stomach. The rest of the caps I take with food. Try taking just one pre workout and see if that helps. Spread the rest out throughout the day several hours apart(1 cap each time)...I started with taking only 1 cap at a time.

  21. Regardless of the forskolin product that Ive tried (and I havent tried the particular one you mentioned), Ive always gotten this side effect.

    Two tips from my experience:

    1 wait it out, that side effect seems to pass for me after a week or so

    2 eat with a large meal, that has seemed to help me avoid the squirts as well

  22. Maybe ill just avoid this product but seriously doesn't anabeta elite have this in it? Never had GI issues with ABE so why would this be any different

    ABE doesn't have as much in it, that's the reason people have suggested lowering the dosage.

  24. So ABE has 50 mg then?

    ABE is in a prop blend, we have no idea of knowing how much is in a serving of ABE. Unless PES has released this amount without me knowing.

    My "guess" would be it's lower than 50 mg, (25?) but that is just by looking at the ingredient label and is merely an assumption. I think ABE has a slightly lower amount of Anacylus extract than Anabeta, but with a prop blend getting precise information like you're asking is going to be impossible unless someone from PES gives it out to you.

    I'm not sure how much it has since it's a prop blend. Some people have guessed 25mg though.

    I asked Ben one time...he told me to go to h3ll...which I interpreted as ~50ish mg per standard ABE dosing...nothing to back that up though...

  30. You must really be prone to GI sides OP. Let me put it this way: if we put you on 100mg of 20% forskolin, you'd be hospitalized lol

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

  32. rank gas

    Excellent

  33. Well I read somewhere that due to the way Forskolin works, it reacts in such a way in the small intestine that means this side effect can be quite common (something to do with membrane permanent cAMP I think), so it's not a negative as much as a normal reaction, and you're lucky if you DON'T get it. Not sure if this is true or not though.

  34. ....Be careful while doing squats!.

    GI issues and Forsk have long been common, it isn't really a new supplement that no one has had trouble running. 95% is supposed to be nicer on the GI sides than the lower extract versions, but I have limited experience with taking a bunch of different extract amounts. Like anything else it's very user dependent.

    Completely false. The higher % forskolin, the more likely GI effects will occur.

    If a 95% forskolin extract does not cause increased motility/diarrhea, then it is bunk.

  38. Be careful what you squirt for.
