Primaforce Forskolin 50 contains 250mg of the potent fat loss herb coleus forskholii extract, yielding 50mg active forskolin per capsule. Forskolin has been observed in scientific studies to help users lose fat and gain muscle at the same time, making it widely appealing to bodybuilders and athletes. Rarely in nature do we find substances that cause simultaneous fat loss and muscle gain, so when we do, we praise them as nature’s gifts to our bodies.
Primaforce Forskolin 50 works by activating the enzyme adenylate cyclase and increasing cAMP levels in the body. When cAMP rises, hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) is activated and stored body fat is mobilized into the blood stream where it can be burned as energy. Primaforce Forskolin 50 can be used by any bodybuilder or active individual looking to improve their body composition by increasing muscle mass and reducing unwanted body fat.
Forskolin is the powerful active found in the herb Coleus forskohlii. Forskolin is believed to improve body composition both through increasing lean mass and decreasing fat mass. Forskolin activates the enzyme adenylate cyclase, which in turn increases cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) levels. The increase in cAMP activates hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) which breaks down stored triglycerides (bodyfat) and releases fatty acids so they can be oxidized and body fat can be decreased.
Forskolin > Activates Adenylate Cyclase > Increases cAMP > Activates HSL > Increases Fatty Acid Release
In order to lose body fat, fatty acids must be released from triglycerides stored as fat tissue. Forskolin increases the release of fatty acids from fat tissue allowing them to be burned for energy, leading to a decrease in body fat.
Forskolin's ability to increase cAMP is also believed to have thyroid stimulating properties. Thyroid hormones govern one's overall metabolism. Increasing thyroid output will accelerate ones metabolic rate and lead to fat loss. In addition, it is believed Forskolin may increase testosterone levels in men, but more research on this is needed.
Forskolin doesn't appear to have strong nervous system stimulating properties, making it a great ingredient to stack with other fat burners such as Primaforce Caffeine, Lean Green, and Yohimbine HCL. Unlike stimulants which cause vasoconstriction, Forskolin is a vasodilator. Blood flow is an important and often overlooked aspect of fat loss as blood flow to fat tissue, especially stubborn fat areas, is vital to the transportation of fatty acids to areas where they can be burned.
