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 energy levels in cells.1 These enzymes are perhaps the most important cell-regulating compounds. Once formed they activate many other enzymes involved in diverse cellular functions.
