Ecological Formulas | Forskolin | 60 Capsules
Ecological Formulas’ Forskolin capsules primarily contain an extract of the ayurvedic herb forskolin‚ which effectively sensitizes cell receptors by stimulating an enzyme called adenyl cyclase‚ while increasing the level of cyclic AMP (cAMP) in your cells. This‚ in turn‚ works to promote lipolysis; this is the process that leads to the breakdown of fat cells‚ which may result in weight loss. Clinical research on humans has found that when overweight subjects took a Forskolin supplement—in addition to a complementary diet and exercise program—reduced their body weight and body fat to a markedly greater extent than those who didn’t receive the Forskolin supplement. Other potential health benefits of Forskolin include recently documented positive effects on the heart and lungs‚ as well as help in maintaining healthy blood pressure levels when they are already within the normal range).
Forskolin is naturally derived from a plant called Coleus forskohlii‚ which is used in the practice of Hindu and Ayurvedic traditional medicine. It’s also the source of an amazing compound with unique biological importance. Forskolin increases thyroid hormone production‚ in addition to stimulating the release of those thyroid hormones. As you may know‚ the thyroid and the hormones it releases are responsible for regulating your metabolic rate. Therefore‚ increasing production in the thyroid results in an increase in metabolism; a faster metabolism burns more calories‚ making weight loss easier.
The forskolin compound—also known as coleonol—is a labdane diterpene that is produced by the Indian coleus plant. It restores the sensitivity of cell receptors by activating the enzyme adenylyl cyclase and increasing the intracellular levels of cAMP. cAMP is an important signal carrier necessary for the proper biological response of cells to hormones and other extracellular signals. It’s required for cell communication in the hypothalamus/pituitary gland axis‚ and for the feedback control of hormones. It acts by activating protein kinase A.
By raising cAMP‚ forskolin contributes to:
- Increased force in the contraction of your heart muscle.
- Relaxation of the arteries and other smooth muscle.
- Healthy levels of insulin secretion.
- Optimal thyroid functioning.
- Increased lipolysis (breakdown of fat).
