The ancient medicinal plant Coleus forskohlii is the source of the compound forskolin which possesses unique biological activity.
The basic mechanism of action of forskolin is the activation of an enzyme, adenylate cyclase, which increases cyclic adenosine
monophosphate (cAMP) in cells.1 Cyclic AMP is perhaps the most important cell-regulating compound. Once formed it activates
many other enzymes involved in diverse cellular functions.*
