Forskolin, unlike many other weight loss remedies, have been know to help in not only belly fat but a number of other functions. Forskolin was shown to elicit favorable changes in body composition by significantly decreasing body fat percentage and fat mass. Forskolin helps to increase lipolysis (breaking down of fats) in fat cells. Various studies have proved that Forskolin is an effective fat burner and since obese people have low levels of cAMP production, Forskolin helps to increase it. Bodybuilders and athletes are also advised to take Forskolin, since it supports thermogenesis (the body's ability to increase heat) and promotes natural fat loss without loss of muscle mass. It has no proven clinical side effects. It also increases stamina and can be taken along with caffeine or any other thermogenic supplement. Forskolin is found in many thermogenics and fat burners, since it has fat-burning enhancing properties and can be found in some highly effective cellulite gels. Forskolin also increases thyroid hormone production. It stimulates thyroid hormone release, which results in increased metabolism and has proved to encourage normal body weight. It is always advisable to consult your medical practitioner before taking any dietary supplements.
