Forskolin, The Best Fat Burner?  What science has to say about how it may help you Lose Weight, Energize, Detox and Balance Hormones

Happy, Healthy NEW 2016 YOU!   

HOW FORSKOLIN WORKS!

The stimulating effects forskolin has on weight loss:

1. Forskolin has been proven to break down stored fat, including stubborn cellulite.

It is arguably the most successful inducer of natural lipolytic activity available today.

2. Forskolin boosts sluggish metabolisms, encouraging weight loss and energy.

It does this by urging the body's natural enzymes into action, doing what they love to do - convert fat to fuel.

 3. Forskolin induces thermogenesis, to vigorously help fuel your body.

It has a unique effect on your body's ability to power itself by burning more stored fat faster, providing energy and weight loss.

 4. Forskolin helps rebalance hormones.

It has proven in studies to help stimulate thyroid production of T3 and T4, which are essential in keeping weight and other hormones in check.

 5. Forskolin has shown it's ability to suppress appetite / build lean body mass / increase bone density.

It uses it's adaptogenic properties to regulate hormonal pathways and help reset fat hormones, (Leptin, Ghrelin, Insulin, Cortisol...), while building lean (fat burning muscle) and increasing bone density for better strength and health.

Not Making Me Shake -- Big Plus
Lutz, M on Sep 10, 2015

"One thing that makes Flower Power stand out for me, is that I do NOT have the jitters and irritation I've had from other diet products. I lost four pounds in two weeks with just this. I'm very happy with it and will keep going. Oh, yes, and I've noticed a more "smoothed out" feeling while detoxifying on this. Thank you for weight loss without the craziness."

My thyroid / energy is better!!
michelle v on Aug 15, 2015

"This product doesn't make me OVER-energized but its doing something to make me get more done and there is not any doubt or whatever that the dumping of toxics started in just a couple days. I lost weight the first week alone 3 pounds."

WHAT'S UP DOC! SCIENTIFIC STUDIES REVEAL JUST HOW FORSKOLIN WORKS!

Much of the research done with forskolin has looked into its effects either in animals in vitro or in vivo or preclinical studies with human tissue. However, there are several published abstracts that have examined the effects of forskolin on body composition, though 85% of the subjects examined were women. Three of these studies indicate that forskolin can have a positive effect on body composition, resulting in a significant reduction of body fat. The fourth study shows a significant reduction in body mass, meaning more fat burning ability.

More good news is that no change in lean body mass is shown in any of the preliminary studies. This means that you keep your fat burning muscles, turning them into faster fat burners!

Scientist working on weight loss breakthrough.

Of particular interest is the dosage of Forskolin in our potent 20% Forskolin FLOWER POWER.  In many of the studies, the dosage used was 250 mg (or less) of 10% extract. FLOWER POWER delivers 250 mg of our bioactive standardized 20% extract.  Many people have reported excellent results on this improved extract.

As a cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) stimulator, forskolin leads to the production of the active form of hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL). HSL is directly involved in the mobilization of triglyceride stores that release free fatty acids to be used for fuel within the body. Read more about cAMP.

FORSKOLIN CLINICAL RESEARCH

FORSKOLIN WEIGHT LOSS STUDIES

Science is revealing more and more of the fascinating effects forskolin root extract has on our metabolism. A concentrated forskolin extract has been shown to burn fat. component experienced a significant decrease in both body fat and fat mass, with a trend toward a significant increase in lean body mass. These men also experienced increased bone mass while taking forskolin.

Forskolin Shows Ability to Reduce Risks of Metabolic Syndrome with Positive Effect on Insulin

In this 2015 randomized controlled trial, forskolin showed promise for reducing risks for Metabolic Syndrome in overweight and obese subjects. This study was conducted with the same dosage (250mg) in each capsule of our FLOWER POWER, the participants took it twice a day as suggested. Looking at the charts, you can see what an impact the forskolin had on insulin and insulin resistance in just a 12 weeks.

Forskolin: Stimulation of Thyroid Secretion of T4 and T3

Forskolin is a potent activator of adenylate cyclase in many tissues including the thyroid gland. We compared the effects of 10(-5) M forskolin and 100 mu units/ml TSH on the dynamics of T4 and T3 secretion from perfused dog thyroid lobes. Both agents induced pronounced increases in T4 and T3 secretion. The increase in secretion was significantly steeper during forskolin than during TSH stimulation. This may suggest that early processes such as TSH-receptor interaction and the subsequent activation of the catalytic unit of adenylate cyclase are of importance for the pattern of very gradual increase in hormone secretion during TSH stimulation of the thyroid. In other respects forskolin seems to induce absolute and relative secretion of T3 and T4 very similar to those obtained by cAMP and TSH.

Forskolin Study: Body Composition and Hormonal Adaptations in Men

Forskolin was shown to elicit positive changes in body composition by significantly decreasing body fat percentage (BF%) and fat mass. There was a trend toward a significant increase for lean body mass in the forskolin group compared with the placebo group. Serum free testosterone levels were significantly increased in the forskolin group compared with the placebo group. Oral ingestion of forskolin (250 mg of 10% forskolin extract twice a day) for a 12-week period was shown to favorably alter body composition while concurrently increasing bone mass and serum free testosterone levels in overweight and obese men.

FORSKOLIN'S ADDITIONAL BENEFITS:

Forskolin’s numerous medicinal qualities make this plant an extraordinarily beneficial one. It has been used in Asia for thousands of years to asthma and other lung conditions. It has also been used to treat allergies, skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, obesity, painful menstrual periods, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), urinary tract infections (UTI), bladder infections, advanced cancer, blood clots, sexual problems in men, trouble sleeping (insomnia), and convulsions.

Forskolin Benefits on Asthma

 Forskolin has been shown to have potential as a  treatment for asthma and other lung diseases. In studies, it had a bronchodilation effect in both children and adults, decreasing asthma attacks. In two controlled trials, conducted by NYU Longone Medical Center, forskolin demonstrated an ability to work as a stabilizer for the cells which release histamine. It also relaxed smooth muscle tissue. Forskolin was also compared to prescription asthma medications with good results.

Forskolin's Antibacterial Properties

According to research conducted by MSKCC (Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center), laboratory mice infected with E. coli and treated with forskolin experienced a decrease in the numbers of this dangerous bacteria.

Fosklolin's Anti-Cancer Properties

This study from 2015, demonstrated that forskolin induced cell death in myeloma cells. Multiple myeloma is cancer that starts in the bone marrow's plasma cells. Activation of the cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) pathway, which forskolin has been shown to do, kills multiple myeloma (MM) cells both in vitro and in vivo.

FORSKOLIN AND THE INSULIN-FAT CONNECTION. IS INSULIN OVER-STUFFIN' YOUR FAT CELLS?

Another way in which FLOWER POWER may help control fat is through its effect on the release of insulin.  Insulin is an essential hormone produced by the pancreas. Its main role is to control glucose levels in our bodies.  When these levels are controlled we store less fat, when they aren't, we see excessive fat storage and diabetes.  Forskolin has been shown, in vitro, to be able to release insulin (as well as glucagon and somatostatin) when incubated in pancreatic cells. This means increased fat utilization, hence less fat storage.

SO, WHERE DOES FORSKOLIN COME FROM? AND, HOW TO KNOW YOU'VE GOT THE "GOOD STUFF!"

PURE Forskolin (Coleus Forskohlii Root 20% Extract) is derived from a beautiful flowering member of the mint family. This remarkable plant has been used in ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years, but is now being utilized in more and more ways, including weight loss / weight management. Forskolin is a labdane diterpene produced by the Indian Coleus plant (Coleus forskohlii), which is why is is also known as "Coleonol".

FLOWER POWER contains FORSKOLIN, in its BIOACTIVE plant form, extracted from the root of coleus forskolli, (a flowering member of the mint family, also known as, Plectranthus_barbatus).  Yes, it comes from the root, but we celebrate the beautiful

FLOWER POWER contains the highest potency of Standardized Coleus Forskohlii Root Extract - 250 mg per capsule. (And, remember, this is the dosage used in all the newer studies. Some older studies used 10%.) This per cap amount of Coleus Forskohlii root yields a powerful 50 mg of bioactive forskolin.

SAFETY FIRST!  (NEVER START A "PROJECT" BEFORE PUTTING ON YOUR GOGGLES!)

Are you asking, "Is it safe?"
Well, my mom would be proud of you.

Since coleus forskohlli has been in traditional ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years, we would not be taking a huge leap of faith to believe it is generally safe. And, we'd actually be right. However, like every other supplement, food, prescription drug, herb, in other words, everything we consume - every individual is different. Please take into account your own body. You know it better than anyone else. If you have a serious medical condition, see below.

Stay safe.

In the clinical trials conducted thus far, none of the users have complained of serious adverse side effects. However, there have been a few isolated cases where someone experienced a rapid heart beat, intestinal distress or rapid detox symptoms.

Pay attention to your body. Slow down. Take less, or let your body rest for several days to a week. If you have serious medical conditions, never start any nutritional supplement without asking your doctor.

 

SO, HOW MUCH FORSKOLIN SHOULD I TAKE FOR BEST RESULTS?

FLOWER POWER Supplement contains the highest potency of Standardized Coleus Forskohlii Root Extract - 250 mg per capsule. This per capsule amount of Coleus Forskohlii root yields a powerful 50 mg of bioactive forskolin each.

Our Flower Power forskolin is STRONG!

Begin with one capsule daily for a few days to see how rapidly you detox. Take two a day once you feel ready. (If detoxifying too quickly, wait a few days, begin again. This is more likely to happen if you have heavy toxic build up and/or you are 20 plus pounds overweight.)  Adjust accordingly. And, remember, 18-20% is the dosage used in all the newer studies.

I like it
August B on Aug 14, 2015

"This isn't like the other ones I tried. I noticed that it was WORKING right away because I started eliminating toxins and losing weight because of it. I didn't notice this with the other two similar products that I tried, maybe it has to do with bioactive product?"

Getting good results!
Jill on Aug 21, 2015

"Working for me. Detoxing is definitely happening, with energy, skin and weight ALL improving. When I first started taking Flower Power, I decided to start with one just to see how fast, or if I noticed cleansing happening. I noticed the very next day, so I stuck with just one capsule for a week, then went to two. This forskolin extract says it is bio-active and I believe it! When I hit my maintenance weight, I will stay on one a day for good hormonal balance and other good stuff it does. Really like it!"
