BioCor Nutrition Forskolin is typically used as a weight management supplement, but is also sometimes used to assist with symptoms from asthma and allergies, help improve immune system function, as well as provide heart health support.
Found in the roots of the plant Coleus forskohlii, Forskolin is an entirely natural, herbal extract used for thousands of years to treat a multitude of health problems from high blood pressure to asthma. But it was the discovery of its amazing weight loss benefits that really propelled Forskolin into the public eye.
By helping to promote the breakdown of stored fats and increasing metabolism, Forskolin can help you lose body fat and increase your lean body mass.
It does this by encouraging the production of cAMP, a molecule that tells your cells to increase the fat breaking enzyme hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL).
HSL breaks down the fat stores within your cells. This release of fatty acids causes a thermogenic (heat producing) reaction, meaning you’ll burn even more calories whilst retaining your lean body mass. With your cells in fat-breaking overdrive, you’ll lose weight quickly and easily!
cAMP also stimulates your thyroid, which regulates your metabolism, meaning your metabolism is increased, allowing your body’s fat breaking rate to intensify even further.
