Effect Increase
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 30
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29, 30-44
Body Types Obese, Overweight
Notes for this study:
Overweight and Obese men were given two doses of 250mg Coleus Forskohlii (10% Forskolin by weight) over a period of 12 weeks in a double blind manner.

Lean mass increased 3.71+/-4.07kg in Coleus group and 1.57+/-2.56kg in control, and fat mass decreased 4.52+/-5.74kg in Coleus and 0.51+/-1.91kg in control. High variance was noted, but the fat loss was significantly different between groups.

Bone mass increased significantly, and favorable body composition changes were seen via DXA. Testosterone increased in the Coleus group relative to placebo, but high variability was seen.
