Coleus forskohlii is an ancient Ayurvedic plant and member of the mint and lavender family. Recent research has shown that the active ingredient in coleus is forskolin, which plays a major role in a variety of important thyroid function, and increasing fat-burning activity. (fat blocker) Though scientists are only just confirming the many benefits of coleus, there's definitly a new "buzz" circulating about its potentials. The problem with the herb is finding a organically grown product. *Careful where you buy from and whom. Some Forskohlii has been noted laced with heavy metals in some coleus products. The price of this herb varies from $8.00 - 100. i.e. and found in many formulas. The root, seed, flower, leaves and/or stem in order of strongnesses of its product. Don't waste good money on stems. There's a lot of Petronia's in the health foods and pharmacy's with this herb.
8- And, make sure it has a least 10-20 percent forskohlii extract.
It's a perfect herb for my; Asthma, eye, congestive heart, obesity and bipolar-depression, all in one herb. The following reasons is why.
Forskolin may act synergistically with epinephrine, ephedrine and pseudoephedrine. It is possible that the use of forskolin may decrease the needed dosages of beta-agonists.Forskolin is in the Ayurvedic familly. Mostly grows in India, Burma and Thialand. Mostly used for allergies, respiratory, cardiovascular diseases, glaucoma, hypothroidism and even weight loss (fat blocker.) It's known to increase energy and works with the hormones in the body. (Asthma, Psoriasis, angina,congestive heart failure, obesity, hypertension,depression, glaucoma.) An Indian pharmaceutical co. is engaged in trail for an eye drop product.
Depression is believed to be associated with an imbalance of neurotransmitters in the brain, serotonin and dopamine primarily. Where there is a shortage of serotonin, the supplements 5-HTP or tryptophan or the SSRI drugs like prozac or Zoloft may be beneficial. If the catecholamine neurotransmitters (epinephrine, norephinephrine) are deficient the amino acids L-Phenylalanine or L-Tyrosine, or monoamine oxidase inhibitors like GeroVital (GH3) or Deprenyl are may be helpful. Recent research has also been evaluating drugs that increase Cyclic AMP as a means of elevating the catecholamines. Since forskolin elevates Cyclic AMP, it may improve neurotransmitter function and thereby
Forskolin appears to exhibit potent immune system enhancement by activating macrophages and lymphocytes.Coleus also increases cerebral blood flow, indicating that it may be beneficial in cerebral vascular insufficiency, and in enhancing post-stroke recovery. The platelet aggregation-inhibiting effects of coleus also adds to its value in cardiovascular disorders.
Because forskolin inhibits platelet aggregation and clotting, it may enhance the effects of anti-clotting medications such as warfarin, clopidogre, aspirin, enoxap.arin, and dalteparin.

Ma Huang-Ephedria (Wondered why his herb worked on weight...or did it really? These folks are still over-weight. You need to calm-down not speed up the adrenals which causes stress. Stress causes weight gain i.e.

What you really need to know is that this herbs goes in a different route then Ma Huang that can over work the adrenal glands Ma Huang eventually makes you wake up tired feeling in the mornings after dosing the previous day with ephedrine - Ma Huang.
"forskolin initiates a similar cascade of chemical reactions as this ephedrine. Where coleus differs from ephedrine is ephedrine stimulates adrenergic receptors (which is the primary mechanism for ephedrine, even though this process is not totally accountable for its fat-burning effects) before it reaches cAMP. Unfortunately, many negative side effects can be experienced when some of these adrenergic receptors are stimulated, such as increased blood pressure, anxiety, etc.
(This is basically why users of ephedrine-based supplements oftentimes experience unwanted and sometimes dangerous side effects.) " To the coleus user's advantage, however, coleus bypasses the adrenergic receptors and goes straight into the cAMP cycle, which is the next step in the ephedrine fat-burning process and subsequently also bypasses all of the potential unwanted, adverse effects associated with ephedrine. It leave a calming effect instead of a adrenia high."
Start with only one then add and follow direction. It's effectiveness will depend on your product in how it was formulated. Keep with a good product and watch out for formulas that may weaken the coleus. Do research...a lot!
