- Coleus assist the body in recalibrating cellular and enzyme messages, thus regulating the pattern of skin imbalances, especially psoriasis
- Balances, regulates skin chemistry; decreasing inflammation.
- Helps to stabilise the mast cells in the lining of the lungs, preventing the over-production of histamine.
- Foskholin regulates insulin secretion, lowers blood sugar levels and helps with the metabolism of fats and proteins.

More on weight loss:
Factors such as stress, hormonal make up, lifestyle choices and diet can lead to the accumulation of fat around the belly. This belly fat is both unsightly and can foster low self-confidence and unhealthy. Coleus Forskhohlii is used to blast away this fat and leave a leaner, more balanced look. It is meant for adults over 18 years of age and has been proven safer than artificial products. Because different people might react differently, any unwanted effects may call for immediate cessation of the medication.
How it works
Coleus Forskohlii works by enhancing the discharge of fatty acids from the tummy’s adipose tissue. The makeup of this component fosters a sequence of responses that cause a thermo genesis effect. Through thermo genesis, the amount of an enzyme called adenylate cylate increases. Consequentially, this boosts an increase in the amount of another enzyme called the cyclic AMP. This enzyme brings further stimulates the Enzyme Lipase which burns up fatty cells that were discharged through a process called lipolysis.
Most obese and overweight people have inadequate levels of the cyclic AMP enzyme. This enzyme is important in triggering biochemical processes that cause the breakdown of fats to release energy. Since Coleus Forskohlii is a cyclic AMP agonist, belly fat is burned up and energy produced making the person more energetic. There is a very fast breakdown of fats because of thermo genesis therefore higher internal temperature that boosts metabolism so that calories burn faster and more excretion. This makes it necessary to keep hydrated while taking this supplement. Generally, there is loss of body fat and a boost in lean body mass.
