  • What is Forskolin?

  • Forskolin is an extract from the root of of Plectranthus barbatus, also known as Coleus Forskohlii, which is a medium sized plant native to India.  In ancient human history, Ayurvedic healers made great use of this herb for the treatment of many health issues. Forskolin is a compound that is found in great concentration within the Coleus Forskohlii root. The roots of this plant have been ground up, eaten, and used in teas by Ayurvedic healers for centuries. Coleus Forskohlii grows to be about two feet in height, has beautiful purple flowers, and being a member of the mint family puts out a very pleasant scent.

Forskolin has shown the ability to help manage many health conditions such as obesity, hormonal issues, heart health, and even help with allergies. As with all plants, there are many more compounds found within the Coleus Forskohlii than just Forskolin. For those adhering to more traditional herbal practices, teas made from the tuberous roots of this plant offer a more symbiotic blend of compounds. Modern research has shown that the active alkaloid Forskolin is by far the most beneficial compound for health purposes.
