ForsLean® – New Study and NSF Certification

A study published in the December 2005 Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (www.theissn.org) entitled “Effects of Coleus forskohlii extract supplementation on body composition and markers of health in sedentary overweight females” confirmed that ForsLean®, Sabinsa Corporation’s patented Coleus forskohlii extract and the only known plant source of forskolin, promotes favorable changes in body composition.

The 12-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 23 overweight women conducted by researchers in the Exercise & Sport Nutrition Lab at the Center for Exercise, Nutrition & Preventive Health Research at Baylor University revealed that individuals receiving ForsLean showed decreases in body mass and reported less fatigue and hunger. Additionally, no clinically significant interactions were seen in metabolic markers, blood lipids, muscle and liver enzymes, electrolytes, red cells, white cells, hormones (insulin, TSH, T3, T4), heart rate or blood pressure. Study participants were given either 250 mg of ForsLean (standardized to 10 percent diterpene forskolin) or a placebo twice daily for 12 weeks.
