Here are 5 benefits to this versatile supplement!

Forskolin Boosts Levels of Cyclic AMP to promote weight loss.

Forskolin has a long history as a folk remedy for asthma and research supports that. Modern and conventional asthma drugs work by boosting levels of a compound called cyclic AMP.  Cyclic Adenosine Monophosphate is important in many biological processes and plays a key role in the functions of many airway cells, which is why boosters of cAMP are used in asthma medicines. A by-product of cAMP enhancement is an increased heart-rate, increased adrenaline, and thus, increased energy expenditure! [1]

Forskolin can relieve pressure in the eyes

Through the reduction of aqueous inflow, studies show that Forskolin helps reduce eye pressure! This means that Forskolin represents a potentially useful class of antiglaucoma agents that is as safe and natural as it gets! [2]

Forksolin increases testosterone levels in males

Forskolin is shown to not only increase testosterone levels, but also bone mass, and resting metabolic rate. Generally speaking most men with hypogonadism or a condition of lowered testosterone levels are also over-weight, and have reduced amounts of muscle mass. It is speculated that as a result of the body fat lost from Forskolin supplementation, hormonal levels are restored. [3]

Forskolin treats high blood pressure

By serving as a vasodilator, Forskolin expands blood vessels, relaxes smooth muscles thereby lowering blood pressure and improving blood flow.

Forskolin lowers blood sugar

Forskolin blocks two proteins responsible for glucose transport, thus helping to decrease blood sugar levels! [4][5]
