Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

For the benefit of our readers, forskolin is an herb - from the mint family.

It is taken in supplement form for many reasons, from weight loss to helping with upper respiratory conditions and asthma.
It's very on-trend at the moment as a weight loss aid but nothing works as well as a healthy diet and exercise.
There is no conclusive evidence to say it works for any condition. We can't say if it's safe or not as studies are few to none with this herb. Side effects may occur if one has a mint allergy but again, it's not well enough studied to know more.
