How much of a difference Forskolin does on a cut?

  1. How much of a difference Forskolin does on a cut?


    Guys, is it worth it to be paying for 3 months of Forskolin when cutting, with a diet in check? I cannot decide for myself based on my Google searches whether and how much it works. What has been your experience? I'll be adding yohimbine and some caffeine into the mix. Money is a little tight and I am sick of wasting money on products that pretty much do nothing.

  3. It helps, but if money is tight would not recommend. Look no further than ECY for solid cutting stack.

  4. It's a good supplement, useful for body composition, but if money is tight, then IMO skip it. I like it and use it, but it doesn't do *enough* to make it worth the cost with a limited budget.

  5. The ECY stack is a Tried, True and Trusted fat loss combo. Look for the 95% extract products though, things like
    PerforMax Labs' OxyMax
    (95% Forskolin + Other Goodies)
    Performax Labs' AlphaMax XT
    (95% Forskolin + Other Goodies)
    Olympus Labs' Forslean
    (95% Forskolin Straight Up)
    PES' Shift
    (95% Forkolin + Other Goodies)
    PES' Forkolin 95+
    (95% Forskolin + Other Goodies)

    I would do a search on the web/supplement stores for it. I found some Swanson 250mg 20% extract (50 mg forskolin total) that came with 60 servings for pretty cheap (like 20 bucks I think). This would last you 1-2 months (I've heard 50-100 mg total forskolin per day is recommended)

    20% is also a lower extract. 95% is what you really want to grab.
    That is why it is cheaper for the 20% and 10%. If your going to shell out of the money, may as well get what is worth your dime. My 2 cents.... For dieting I would rather buy bulk Yohimbine-HCL (if tolerated) it is dirt cheap and effective for stubborn bodyfat. Besides that EC is hard to beat.

    These are the best options ^^^^ Personally if diet is in check I would skip on the f95. Think of it as an extra add on if funds are there.

    Aren't the studies done on a 10 or 20% extract which is why we deem it potentially beneficial? To my knowledge I believe so. Also, mathematically I'm not understand why 250mg of say 10% extract (forslean) is that much different than 95% of 25mg. Considering I doubt there would be much, if any difference in results, it would make sense to purchase the most economical one assuming you deem the source credible.

    "On the other hand, let’s say you are taking a “forskolin supplement” that is actually only 10% forskolin. In order to get the suggested amount, you’d have to take 250mg twice a day for a 500mg daily total dose. Welcome to diarrhea central.

    Worse, some of the cheap forskolin supplements don’t even state their standardization. Those aren’t even worth your time (or money).

    So it is important to take into account the percentage of forskolin, dose accordingly, and buy quality. This isn’t a simple herb, as you can imagine from reading this document."


    "It's only 20% forskolin which is why they use 250mg to supply 50mg of actual forskolin. Lower percentage extracts often cause GI distress which is why people opt for forslean 95% forskolin-both found in OL and PES products."

    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.

    Considering you can get Bottles of PES F95 for around $20 and get 30 servings worth out of it. Its not a bad buy at all, and you will save yourself from excessive digestion problems which a lot of people have when taking the product.

    Yeah I imagine it wouldn't be worth it if you couldn't get off the toilet lol. Luckily, some good companies do list the % extract and so far I haven't had any GI issues (knocks on wood). That's good information though in case that changes! Thanks for the insight!

  11. I personally enjoy it and suggest it when cutting. If money is tight and you do not know how you respond to it, then I would say skip it. However, I would look into supplementing with it at a later time to see if it would be worthwhile next time.

    Forskolin increases metabolism, burns fat, breaks down triglycerides, and increases lean-body mass
    The thyroid stimulating strength of forskolin has been compared to TSH (thyrotropin). Thyroid hormone levels are important for leanness.
    Forskolin has increased total testosterone by 16% in male subjects during a 12-week trial.

    Fat Mass:  The colforsin group lost 4.52 kilograms (9,94 pounds) of fat, plus or minus 5.74 kilograms, while the placebo group lost only 0.51 kilograms (1.12 pounds), plus or minus 1.91 kilograms.
    Lean Body Mass:  The colforsin group gained 3.71 kilograms of lean body mass (8.162 pounds), plus or minus 4.07 kilograms, while the placebo group gained 1.57 kilograms (3.45 pounds), plus or minus 2.56 kilograms.
    Testosterone:  The Testosterone of the colforsin group rose 33.7 percent, while it decreased 18.35 percent in the placebo group.

    The total body weight of a mixed group of men and women in a 12-week study decreased from 74.7 kilograms to 73.5 kilograms while experiencing increases in lean body mass (without weight training).

  12. Personally, I do not do a cut or recomp without Forskolin or a forskolin containing product (at some point during cut or recomp). We all have our own experiences with it. Like Solution said, if the funds are there for you, go for it. If they aren't, don't sweat it. It won't make or break the results you will achieve. If you do decide on a product to use, let us know and I can search to see which website offers the best deal for the product you are wanting.

  13. I seem to do fine with a 20% extract (although 95% is admittedly better) paired with rauwolscine, but when I pair it with Y HCl, that is when the diarrhea central occurs as well as the gamut of flu like symptoms, and goodnight, stay away from yohimbe. The standardization is all over the place, and you never know what you are getting.

  14. I've never noticed more from anything on the market other than Yohimbe HCL stacked with caffeine.

  15. A mouse study on coleus forskohlii using low % forskolin extract found unfavourable results regarding liver health, and this is likely due to other actives in coleus forskohlii other than forskolin; I would suggest getting 95% forskolin extracts for that reason

  16. There is not enought evidence to suggest that forskolin is working ,more research is needed.
    I wouldnt waste money until there is solid proof its working, far better options out there that work ( eca ftw ).
    Took many different forksolin supps ( solo ) , didnt do a thing for me.

    Problem is that Ephedrine is not as easily available in many countries and often even illegal.

    I am not sure either that forskolin does a lot, I have tried it several times now at different standardizations, etc.

    Agreed, it is pretty well established that it is over-hyped to say the least. I have taken 100 mg of F95 and sometimes more for months on end. I may as well have just been consuming a sugar pill.
