Forskolin Friday: The 411 On This Powerhouse Supplement Ingredient

While most people take Forskolin for its incredible weight loss and fat burning benefits, this little gift from God has more health-boosting benefits and could help you reach a higher health potential than you might think.

Dr. OzYou may have seen my segment on the Dr. Oz Show a few years ago talking about Forskolin. That segment turned this humble natural botanical into a celebrity status supplement that I’ve been using in my weight loss formulas to help bust through stubborn plateaus and improve weight loss and fat burning for over 20 years.

Forskolin is one of the most efficient supplement ingredients (found in exactly the amounts needed, also known as clinical dose) and can be found in LynFit Accelerator Advanced.

These Forsklon facts will help you make a well-informed decision as to whether or not you should include it into your daily nutrition protocol.

What is it?
Forskolin has been a staple in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years to promote general health and wellness. Today its most popular use is that of a weight loss supplement because it helps create enzymes called lipase and adenylate cyclase that free stored fat from its cells so they can be burned as fuel without affecting lean body mass. It is especially effective when calories are reduced, helping prevent metabolic slowdown that can occur when trying to lose weight.

Where does it come from?
Forskolin is made from the root of a plant belonging to the mint family known as the Indian coleus that grows naturally in Nepal, India, and Thailand.

What else is Forskolin good for?
Forskolin is also known to:

  • Help treat cancers 
  • Improve heart strength in congestive heart failure 
  • Treat glaucoma 
  • Lower blood pressure 
  • Improve circulation 
  • Aid in correcting digestive disorders
  • Relieves muscle spasms and stiffness
  • Help treat idiopathic congestive cardiomyopathy and heart disorders such as high blood pressure, chest pain, and angina 
  • Help alleviate respiratory and asthma symptoms 
  • Provide allergy protection 
  • Help clear acne 
  • Reduce depression 
  • Help with hypothyroidism, which enhances stubborn weight loss 
  • Enhance immune function 
  • Help alleviate constipation 

Why does LynFit love Forskolin?
Forskolin is a natural way to improve the metabolic health issues listed above and improve weight loss and fat burning by addressing the underlying issues that are affecting it.

Because Forskolin is also combined with a team of the best and most effective metabolic boosting, natural botanicals, I almost always suggest that anyone who is trying to lose weight and struggling with high blood pressure (or any of the issues above) take two daily (one in morning as soon as they wake up and another midday). If you're one of those afternoon slump people, which leads you to the vending machine, Accelerator Advanced can help you too. For you, I suggest taking a third dose, but be careful not to take it too late as the b-complex it contains can keep you up. As a rule, I go to bed early, so I try not to take anything too late (after 1 p.m.) because I don’t want anything interrupting my sacred sleep.

Did you know that we should avoid all caffeine and any supplements that might energize us, including b-complex at least six hours before bedtime? Yes, even if you're one of those who says, “I can drink coffee and fall right to sleep" people. While you might think it doesn’t affect you, try not drinking any for a week and see how your sleep improves. You’ll quickly realize that you may fall asleep, but it interferes with deep sleep, which is where you receive the health-boosting benefits (like relieving aches and pains, rebalancing cortisol levels, and more).

The only supplements I suggest taking after 1 p.m. are:

What makes LynFit's Forskolin better than all the rest?
This clinical strength, standardized extract is more concentrated and maintains a minimum potency so that you can use less (saving you time and money) —clinically-dosed, pure, natural, organic, with no preservatives or fillers. 

And, we use the entire plant, which provides better nutrition. Since you’re consuming the entire herb, you get its full spectrum of plant chemicals, called phytochemicals. That’s a good thing because the herb’s phytochemicals not only provide health-boosting nutrition, but they also work in synergy together providing ten-times more effectiveness than a single plant chemical that performs on its own.

Then, LynFit takes it a step further by drying the forskolin into a powdered extract. Powdered extracts are made by soaking the herb in a natural solvent (LynFit uses a natural solvent, but the "cheapo" companies don't use natural ingredients) that is later evaporated. What’s left behind is a super-concentrated powder of plant chemicals that we then mix with some other whole herbs in powder form to add consistency. We then sell it in an easy-to-swallow capsule.

Dried powdered extracts are by far the most potent herbal preparation—they’re even stronger than liquid extracts. They are also easy to take, portable, and easier on the stomach, making them the most versatile option, so you can be consistent.

Because the extracts we use are so strong, some can only take one a daily, or even less. If you're super-sensitive like me, you'll appreciate it being in capsule-form. You can open them up and sprinkle the amount needed to avoid uncomfortable feelings like nausea or dizziness that can occur when improving blood pressure or raising nutrient levels in the body. One out of 10,000 may feel some of these (I'm one of them) and often, the more you need the nutrient, the more apt you are to experience some of these. The capsules allow you to start using very small amounts if needed.

Why not just buy the store-bought brand (the super-low price is the giveaway)?
Most companies use harsh chemicals in the soaking solvent that can be unsafe for consumption, whereas LynFit uses natural methods. Plus, most brands don't take their own products... my whole family does, and so do I! I answer to a higher calling, and I want to help people get the results they seek and feel better the same day they start.

Whenever you hear someone say they didn't get results, you can always translate that to inferior quality and lack of consistency. Quality is paramount! You can easily avoid the drama by buying from a reputable company like LynFit that tests to ensure the solvent chemicals are fully evaporated. While it looks more expensive, you use less but get better results in the long run. When your health improves, so does your savings.

Who should take Forskolin found in LynFit Accelerator Advanced?
Anyone who wants to lose weight, lose their love handles and improve health and wellness.

I hope this inspires you to reach for God's natural pharmacy instead of relying on health-harming, metabolic-slowing, man-made drugs that can cause more problems than they fix.
