My name is Christine Marquette and I'm a registered and licensed dietitian with Marquette nutrition and fitness and I'm going to talk to you about Coleus Forskohlii side affects. Coleus Forskohlii is an herb that has been used in anorectic Indian medicine for many years, it has been used for a variety of conditions. Here in the United States it's primarily used as a weight loss supplement. There actually have not been any significant reports of side affects with this particular herb. There haven't been a lot of human studies either so there is that potential that there will be down the road, however in the few studies that have been done, there haven't been any negative reports of, for example blood pressure. No negative affects of blood pressure, or cholesterol, or blood sugar, or liver function, kidney function, your white blood cells, your red blood cells. In the study that has been done they looked at all of these different factors. They also surveyed the people who were taking the supplement for potential problems with nausea, dizziness, vomiting, diarrhea and they didn't find any significant reports of any type of side affects. So as far as we know at this point in time there are no significant side affects with Coleus Forskohlii, again it is relatively new in human research so there is that potential. If you choose to use this supplement just be very mindful of your own body be cautious of possible allergic reactions and pay attention to how you feel. But as of right now there are no reported side affects of Coleus Forskohlii.
