Forskolin Extract Review

on January 9, 2015

I was sent a 90 Capsule bottle of Forskolin Extract by Sonora Nutrition to review through Tomoson.

So I’ve been finding it pretty important to start googling all the diffrent extracts that I am getting sent to review. So First let me start by giving you a breakdown on what Forskolin is.  (AND LET ME TELL YOU EVERY SINGLE TIME I MISS READ FORSKOLIN AND GET TRAUMATIZED) 

Alright So Forskolin is an herbal extract from the Coleus Forskohlii a plan that belongs to the mint family.

Its said that this plant helps with different heart conditions as well as asthma. I checked out Web MD and strongly encourage you to check it out before you start taking this supplement if you are on different medications as it looks like this plan can have interactions with different medications, and As always (Captain obvious here) Check with your doctor before taking a new supplement.

  • HIGHEST POTENCY AVAILABLE: Lab tested and verified, our 20% Forskolin formula is the strongest available anywhere, yielding 50 mg of active Forskolin to super-charge your metabolism.
  • PROVEN TO WORK: Called by a famous TV doctor a “Miracle Flower to Fight Fat,” Forskolin is proven to speed up your metabolism, burn fat, and increase lean muscle mass.
  • BEST FORMULA: 100% pure, highest quality Coleus Forskohlii Root Extract. No fillers, binders, or artificial ingredients.
  • NO SIDE EFFECTS: 100% natural and safe thermogenic fat burner without the side effects. Won’t cause jitters, nausea, headaches, or dizziness.

This product is reasonably priced on Amazon for $19.95.

The Company says on the amazon site that:

Clinically Proven To Work

Scientists confirm that Forskolin provides the following benefits:

-Speeds up metabolism instantaneously
-Burns calories at a faster rate than with exercise alone
-Replaces fat with lean muscle
-Suppresses appetite and cravings
-No side effects

So… I tried it and found that

  • I had no side effects.
  • It kind of had a funky rooty smell and a odd aftertaste (con)
  • I’m sure if I put more effort in working out I would have seen a larger weight loss however this does help keep my hunger in check and because of that a quick way to drop 5 or so pounds.
