We review the dosage of forskolin that this supplement contains and determine if it is a good value for money.
There is one active ingredient in this supplement which is Coleus forskohlii extract. Extract from Coleus forskohlii contains a substance called Forskolin. Forskolin acts on a piece of cellular machinery called adenylate cyclase. Activation of adenylate cyclase causes various outcomes depending on the cell that it is in. In fat cells, activation of adenylate cyclase causes the breakdown of stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol which can be used as an energy source.
In some brain cells especially those which control hunger, it’s activation results in the release of amphetamine-like chemicals. Amphetamine chemicals act on other brain cells to reduce the feelings of hunger. In cells of the sympathetic nervous system, activation of adenylate cyclase speeds up their activity which results in (healthy) increased heart rate, and nutrient breakdown to provide energy. This is what is considered to be the boost in metabolism.
The manufacturer suggests taking 2 capsules per day, each with a meal. The daily serving of Coleus forskohlii extract present in the supplement is 400 mg standardized to 20% concentration. This dosage is just slightly under what researchers who conducted a clinical trial found to be the optimal dosage – 500 mg.

Our Final Review of Just Potent Pharmaceutical Grade Forskolin Extract
Forskolin is definitely a well-researched natural supplement that exhibits some really great effects. The minor problem in this supplement is that the dosage of forskolin is slightly lower than what was tested in a clinical trial that proved its effects.
The manufacturer does offer the supplement at a reasonable price, but it is unfortunate that they don’t offer bulk purchasing options because that means long term use of the supplement will end up being more expensive and more tedious. What is quite disturbing about this manufacturer is that they claim to offer a satisfaction guarantee but they do not accept open products, which leads you to wonder how the customer can determine whether they are satisfied or not.
