There have been two significant studies surrounding the weight-loss, fat burning and weight-prevention properties of Coleus Forskohlii extract (the active ingredient in LEAN Nutraceuticals Forskolin).
The first study concluded
“Forskolin was shown to elicit favorable changes in body composition by significantly decreasing body fat percentage (BF%) and fat mass (FM) as determined by DXA compared with the placebo group”
“There was a trend toward a significant increase for lean body mass in the forskolin group compared with the placebo group”
The second study concluded
“CF (Coleus Forskohlii) has the potential to positively influence the loss and management of overall body weight possibly as a means of maintaining weight after weight loss. Still, future research is needed to further explore its capabilities.
LEAN Nutraceuticals Forskolin capsules contain 250 mg of 20% Forskolin and have what you need to help you burn fat, build lean muscle and keep the weight off.
Forskolin as a Testosterone Booster
Let’s take a look at four different studies that all seem to suggest that there is some merit to using Forskolin as a testosterone booster for men.
1. The first study didn’t relate directly to testosterone, but rather to Forskolin’s ability to activate the levels of cAMP in the body. Since cAMP is an intercellular messenger that helps biologic signals transfer between cells and hormones it makes some sense that increased cAMP activity could help increase the body’s ability to utilize hormones (such as testosterone). You can read more about that here: Forskolin and derivatives as tools for studying the role of cAMP.
At the end of the 12 week period, the Forskolin group noted a 33% increase in testosterone when compared to placebo as well as significant reductions in BMI (Body Mass Index). It should be noted that this study was sponsored by a Forskolin supplement company and used a relatively small sample size. Still, it is cited often in academia as a good example of the positive impact Forskolin can have on obese men in particular.
Is forskolin some sort of miracle pill that will allow me to magically lose weight?
No! What we have found is that Forskolin seems to work quite well for some people and not at all for others.
Would it help if I altered my diet and increased my exercise?
Yes! While forskolin has shown to be beneficial in promoting weight loss and fat burning you will have better results if you approach your weight loss goals with a healthy flexible diet (see The LEAN Synergy diet) and a sound exercise program.

Best brand I've used.
I have been so tired and sluggish. Although I bought this for weight loss. Because forskolin was featured on the Dr Oz show. It has done so much more for me!! I can actually get out of bed now and get moving!! I truly haven't felt this good in months!!
