Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Many studies have investigated the effects of forskolin on fat metabolism.
Most of them are test-tube experiments or animal studies, so the result may not be applicable to humans.

Forskolin stimulates the release of stored fat from fat cells. The same thing happens whenever the body needs to use body fat for energy.

On its own, the release of stored fat is not enough to promote weight loss. It needs to be accompanied by a calorie deficit.

For weight loss to happen, you need to burn more calories than you consume. Exercise is the better way to burn body fat.
