Forskolin from Motherland Medicinals

Forskolin is now starting to get a lot of press in the herbal and weight loss community due to the benefits people are noticing, and the glowing reviews Dr. Oz has made of the product. Dr. Oz claims that it is literally "lightning in a bottle" and burns away stubborn belly fat. On a Dr. Oz episode that aired last spring, he set fire to a paper representation of a fat belly to show how forskolin “works like a furnace inside your body.” The paper ignited, went up in flames, and revealed a non-flammable model of muscle tissue inside to show how forskolin burns fat, not muscle, and to illustrate how quickly it works. In a previous episode, in January, he called forskolin “lightning in a bottle,” and a “miracle flower to fight fat.” His guest, a weight loss expert, reported that it had doubled the weight loss of her clients. She said “if your metabolism is sleeping, forskolin is gonna wake it up.” She doesn’t claim that it will work miracles all by itself, but recommends it as an addition to gentle exercise and “cleaning up the diet”. Dr. Oz says he pulled up all the research and was impressed by the evidence that it “ignites your metabolism.

What is Forskolin? Forskolin is found in the roots of an herbal plant from the mint family. Web MD cites that this plant has been used since ancient times to treat health problems such as high blood pressure and chest pains as well as asthma. 

How Does Forskolin Break Down Body Fat? Essential fatty acids, along with fats and carbohydrates, are required to produce enough metabolic energy for your body to move, think, talk, breathe, produce body heat, and everything else your body needs to do to survive. Biochemistry explains the rest. Dr. Oz said that forskolin may also release fatty acids from adipose tissue, which results in increased thermogenesis, resulting in the loss of body fat and, theoretically, increased lean body mass. Thermogenesis is the generation of heat in the body.

How Much Forskolin Should I Take? Dr. Oz said that only one dosage of 125 mg of forskolin in the morning is enough to give you the amount you need to potentially help lose that excess belly fat. Make sure that the forskolin supplements you purchase contain 20 percent forskolin. Anything else will have a reduced impact on fat burning, said Dr. Oz.
