Twinlab Forskohlii Diet Fuel is a nonprescription weight loss pill based on the primary ingredient, forskoli, also sometimes called forskolin. This substance has been used for hundreds of years in Ayurvedic medicine.
According to the official Forskohlii Diet Fuel webpage on the Twinlab site, this herb has been combined with “clinically tested levels” of green tea extract and chromium. The result is meant to be an energy boosting supplement that supports weight loss when combined with proper diet and exercise.
It claims to provide a formula that balances the ancient traditions or Ayurveda with more modern scientific developments. Technically speaking, this is true as forskolin has been used for centuries but has, more recently, been studied in early research. This preliminary study has suggested that there is some significant promise to using this ingredient for weight loss and that it is worthy of further research.
The product is designed to be used along with regular healthy eating and exercise. It should be taken twice per day at a dose of one capsule each time. The official website recommends that users take the capsule 20 to 30 minutes ahead of a meal.
That said, it is interesting that the product label doesn’t specify which meals as this product contains caffeine, a stimulant, and could cause users to risk sleep struggles if it’s taken too late in the day, it may be assumed that the product should be taken before the dieter’s two first meals instead of the two largest ones. In fact, there is 100 mg of caffeine in each capsule. This is about the equivalent to one regular cup of coffee. This means that some dieters will experience side effects from using this product, particularly over the first few days and if they have a sensitivity to the effects of stimulants.
Every bottle of Twinlab Forskohlii Diet Fuel contains 60 capsules. Since two of these pills are taken each day, each bottle represents a one month supply.
This product also contains green tea extract and chromium. While green tea has seen some very positive results in clinical testing, chromium does not have that same degree of scientific support. In fact, the Mayo Clinic and certain other reputable medical organizations have identified chromium as a substance that requires further study, at best. There simply isn’t enough research behind chromium to indicate that it can be directly linked with weight loss results.
