Forskolin acts like a hormone in the body; it activates the enzyme adenylate cyclasewhich results in increased cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) in cells. cAMP then activates other enzymes involved in varied cellular functions. Increased cellular cyclic AMP results in a widespread range of effects which result in:
- Decreased likelihood of blood clots
- Reduced Allergy symptoms
- Increased thyroid function
- Increased fat burning
- Relaxation of the arteries and other smooth muscles
- Increased force of contraction of the heart
Recent studies have shown that obese and overweight people have lower than normal cAMP production. Based on this alone, Forskolin has been found to be an effective aid for weight loss. By boosting the thyroid's metabolic hormone production, healthy body weight may be achieved. Forskolin has been found to be a very effective product for maintaining a healthy body weight.
