In its native India, coleus has been used in the ancient medical system of Ayurveda for centuries. Ayurvedic traditions recommend coleus to aid the health of the heart, respiratory system, and digestive tract, among other uses. Coleus forskohlii is the only plant known to contain the diterpenoid forskolin. Forskolin activates adenylate cyclase, which in turn activates cyclic adenosine monophoshate (cAMP), an intracellular second messenger responsible for inducing the cellular response to hormonal activation. Because forskolin effectively activates cAMP, it has been used in numerous research studies to explore the mechanisms and effects of cAMP.Ingredients:
