Since being featured on two episodes of the Dr. Oz show, Forskolin is flying off the shelves everywhere. You can learn what people say about it at TrySkinnyPills.com | Forskolin Reviews. It has also been featured on ABC, MSNBC, CNN , BBC Fox News, and USA Today. Sales are skyrocketing with online exposure on Facebook and Pinterest.
Forskolin is a hot topic in the news.
What is this new sensation in the world of weight loss?
We find forskolin in the roots of Indian Coleus, an herb in the mint family with a longstanding reputation for improving people’s health.
It has been used through the ages for treating heart ailments like chest pain (angina) and high blood pressure, as well as lung related problems like asthma. There is also some evidence that it is helpful for people with glaucoma. Moreover, some new research has found that it can breakdown fats in our bodies.
People world-wide are struggling, seemingly in vain, against the increasing levels of obesity. This may be the scientific breakthrough we’ve been waiting for. A recently released 12-week clinical study published in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health showed changes in body composition and reduction of fat mass. As we burn fat, we can change the ratio (BMI) of our lean body mass to fat resulting in greater health overall as well as more beautiful, sculpted bodies.
In addition to Dr. Oz discussing the weight loss supplement (always a media magnate in the health world) other celebrities have lent support to the Dr. Oz “belly-blaster in a bottle.” Rachael Ray has added her recommendation- indicating that she lost 25lbs and 4 dress sizes while using Forskolin. Body builders, naturally, are jumping on the bandwagon as well. Matthew McConaughey is reputed to have used it to re-sculpt his body in preparation for the part of a male stripper in the movie “Magic Mike.”
Do Forskolin reviews indicate there any side effects for the use of Forskolin?
Just because it is a natural plant substance does not mean that Forskolin side effects don’t exist, but they are less likely and less severe than they can be with pharmaceuticals. There are very few mentions of side effects online in reviews. Naturally, pregnant or breastfeeding women are warned not to use it. There may be danger for people with low blood pressure and warnings before surgery in case of increased blood loss. Also it may increase testosterone level (a plus for the bodybuilders, but not everyone). Overall, it seems very safe for the majority of people.
How is Forskolin to be used?
Dr. Oz does not endorse any particular brand. If you are interested in finding out for yourself whether forskolin can work for you, he says that the label should say “standardized to 20% forskolin.” Otherwise, the herbal extract may not be effective. Read the label as to the dosage. Dr. Oz recommends 125 mg taken in the morning.
So, do the Forskolin reviews prove it is really a miracle pill in the weight loss battle?
The evidence is certainly not in. There is the study that shows that it can help people to reduce fat percentage and fat mass with a trend (non significant) towards increased bone mass and lean body mass. However, this was a small preliminary study. It is fortunate Forskolin has proven relatively safe historically, since the mass testing is going to be among the buying public. As consumers try it and decide on it’s efficacy, I’m sure there will be more evidence to support or refute whether Forskolin is a viable solution to our obesity crisis.
