also help treat obesity, according to a small study published in Obesity
Research in 2005. For the study, 30 overweight or obese men were assigned to
receive either forskolin or a placebo daily for 12 weeks.
At the end of
the study, members of the forskolin group showed a greater decrease in body fat
and a greater increase in lean body mass (compared to members of the placebo
group) - weight loss naturally. Study participants treated with forskolin also
experienced a significant increase in bone mass.
