Safety of ForsLean® Affirmed By Independent Expert Review

November 30, 2004

An independent review conducted by CANTOX Health Sciences International confirmed the safety of Sabinsa’s ForsLean ® ( Coleus forskohlii extract), ingredient for use in dietary supplements. Coleus forskohlii is the only known plant source of forskolin, a natural compound that has been shown to increase lean body mass and help optimize body composition through the activation of cAMP. US Patent #5,804,596 (international patents pending) held by Sabinsa Corporation describes the use of forskolin as a weight management ingredient and in the management of mood disorders.

A letter issued by CANTOX states “the available information supports the safety of ForsLean ® at the intake level of 500 mg per day resulting in a dose of 50 mg of forskolin.” CANTOX findings were based on scientific information and data, provided by Sabinsa Corporation and obtained from thirdparty literature, pertaining to the safety of ForsLean.
