(Asano Tsuguyoshi (2001) Clinical report on root extract of perilla plant (Coleus forskohlii) ForsLean® in reducing body fat - Asano Institute. Tokyo, Japan.)
A standardized extract of Coleus forskohlii roots known as ForsLean® (10% diterpene forskolin) was evaluated in a 12 week open field study in overweight volunteers, 1 male and 13 females; average weight 74.7±11.98 kg, average BMI 29.9±4.31 and average body fat 38.2±4.87%. ForsLean® was administered in a dose of 125 mg twice a day. Total daily intake of ForsLean® was calculated as 25 mg of diterpene forskolin.
Total body weight showed tendency to decrease from an average 74.7 kg at the onset of the study to 73.5 kg on the third month (p<0.05). Body mass index improved from an initial average value of 29.9 to 29.4 (p<0.05) at conclusion of the study. The body fat was decreased from an initial average value of 38.2% to 37.1% (p<0.01) at conclusion of the study.
