    Weight loss using Forskolin
    An_267419 posted:
    Can anyone provide information using Forskolin to assist with weight loss? Thanks
    CindyS858 responded:
    I have found that products like these containing one "miracle" ingredient like forskolin or garcinia cambogia (what I like to call the Dr. Oz products) are usually ineffective, and can possibly contain other harmful ingredients. If you are looking to use a supplement to help you with weight loss, I recommend something like Liporidex that has a combination of ingredients that work together for results and does not just have a lot of caffeine.

    I have lost my extra weight and body fat with the help of drinking an organic weight loss tea supplement called mummy magic tea. I'm now pregnant with my third one and will use the same product to lose my pregnancy weight because it's effective and works wonder with no side effects.

    Hi there and thanks for posting,

    I found forskolin in WebMD's Vitamin & Supplements section.

    Please consult your doctor before taking any vitamin or supplement.

    Also, please update us once you talk to your doctor. Also, if you do wind up taking forskolin, be sure to come back and tell us about your experience.
