Forskolin as cAMP Booster for More Energy, Weight Loss, Weight Gain and Psoriasis
Indian herb Coleus Forskohlii (contains the forskolin) is actually one of the best supplements that I have ever tried. Didn’t use it for psoriasis although there are people who cured themselves by taking forskolin daily for about 2-3 months. It is also used in ayurvedic medicine as treatment for psoriasis, asthma, increased intraocular pressure, hypothyroidism, low activity of immune system, and for inhibiting the platelet aggregation amongst the others.
I took it just for more energy multiple times for a few days so it did nothing to my psoriasis. However I think that after about 2 months course you could see an improvement since this herb is used as psoriasis remedy for the centuries.
You can feel the difference in energy in about two days of taking it on empty stomach in dose about 25 mg of forskolin (which is a 10 % extract in one 250 mg capsule or 20 % in one 125 mg capsule of dried powdered Coleus Forskohlii root) in the morning and before going to bed.
Since the herbs are really powerful in modulating various processes in the body you definitely shouldn’t take forskolin as supplement more than 3 months in a row.
It can definitely help you to loose some weight but the diet is always the most important factor! You can’t think that you can eat 4 pounds (2 kg) of junk food a day and some supplement in one little capsule will cure you or melt the fat away.
Forskolin can improve many health issues since it affects the cAMP (cyclic Adenosine Monophosphate) concentration in the cells through activating the enzyme adenylate cyclase. Psoriasis is the disease which is accompanied by increased cGMP levels (cyclic Guanosine Monophosphate) and low cAMP levels in the cells. However if high cGMP levels affect the psoriasis pathogenesis directly is not known.
Also keep in mind that you can also gain some weight using the forskolin. It all depends on your body and if you are overweight or underweight. It is not 100 % sure but those who are overweight despite exercising and normal Calorie intake should loose some weight taking the forskolin and those who can’t gain weight despite eating a lot of Calories should put on some weight thanks to forskolin. It is partially caused by improved digestion by very effective stimulating the stomach acid secretion as well as helping the pancreas to produce the digestive enzymes.
