Coleus Forte Description

Coleus Forte is made from the root of Coleus forskohlin, which contains the forskolin as a major constituent. This product is standardized to contain 18.7 mg of forskolin per tablet to ensure optimal strength and quality.

Why Coleus Forte is very important

Scientists at the Department of Health, Sport and Exercise Sciences, University of Kansas conducted a clinical trial using standardized Coleus extract in overweight men. Over a period of 12 weeks these men took either Coleus extract (providing 50 mg/day of forskolin) or an inactive compound (placebo). At the end of this time those taking Coleus extract lost 4.5 kg (about 10 pounds) in fat mass, but their weight did not change. But those taking placebo gained weight (1.57kg (about 3.5 pounds) and fat mass did not change. All participants consumed their normal diet and they were not physically active.

In Waco, Texas another group of researchers also conducted a clinical trial using a standardized Coleus extract, this time with mildly overweight women. The Coleus extract used contained SO mg/day of forskolin, and was given for 12 weeks in a regimen that did not include diet and exercise. Although both groups of women ate the same amount of food, at the end of the trial those taking Coleus experienced an average weight loss of 0.7 kg (about 1.5 pounds). But the placebo group gained an average of 1 kg (about 2.2 pounds). This suggests that standardized Coleus extract helped the body to maintain healthy weight by tending to prevent weight gain.

Standardized Coleus extract achieves its effect on fat mass because of how forskolin interacts with fat tissue. Forskolin helps the fat cells to release free fatty acids to use as a fuel in the body. Biochemists have known for some time that forskolin is able to directly increase cyclic AMP in cells. Cyclic AMP is a cellular messenger and regulator, so forskolin supports and maintains the health of the body's cells and tissues.
