The Benefits of Coleus Forskohlii Extract
Many assume that just because you’re vegan or vegetarian, it’s easy to stay slim. Whether you’re trying to lose a couple extra pounds to keep your figure, are trying to get in the best shape of your life, or are just trying to reach your athletic goals, you need something that’s going to be able to help you get there.
CF, or Coleus Forskohlii, is a natural plant found in India whose extracts have been used for weight loss for many years. It’s a supplement that is completely natural and likely safer than most weight loss supplements out there.
But how well does it actually work?
It’s just as easy to be skeptical about natural remedies as it is to be about medical ones. But many studies have been done to answer this question in particular, and the results have been pretty promising.
In an article, it was pointed out that not only did CF help animals with weight loss, it also helped people lost weight - a test that many natural weight loss supplements likely won’t pass.
We saw this actually happen in a study published in “Nutrients” journal, where participants took a CF supplement for 12 weeks. The result was significant weight loss with no real negative effects.
But how does CF cause weight loss so easily?
CF has the ability to curb your appetite, allowing you to feel fuller for longer and completely stop the urge to snack and overeat. Just that alone is enough to help with weight loss, but that’s not all that CF can do for you.
According to Obesity: Epidemiology, Pathophysiology, and Prevention, when you take CF, it causes a series of chain reactions in your body, allowing your body to actually be able to use up energy from fat first, instead of carbs and proteins like it normally does. This helps the fat to break down, helping you to shed those extra pounds.
Plus, in one study published in the “Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition,” not only did it show promising results in helping the participants achieve a desirable body weight, but they also simply felt less hungry and less tired throughout the days.
So if you’re trying to lose weight, taking CF extract can help you out. While cutting calories can be a hard thing to do, it’s sometimes necessary to reach your weight goals. Then when you add in the lethargy that comes with getting less calories each day, it brings on feelings of fatigue that are hard to shake and bounce back from.
How are you supposed to keep up a strong workout routine when you feel sluggish from eating smaller, less fulfilling meals?
CF extracts might be just what you need. After all, studies show that it does more than just help you burn fat. It also makes you feel more full and more energetic, allowing you to tackle that low-cal diet at the same time that you take on that hardcore workout to get the ultimate results that you’re looking for.
