About Forskolin Belly Buster

By HighYa Staff

Forskolin Belly Buster claims to be a premium quality natural compound that can help you burn fat quicker than with diet and exercise alone, and to be a “revolutionary breakthrough” that produces natural energy and boosts your metabolism. In order to accomplish this, Forskolin Belly Buster claims to provide you with the optimal dosage of 100% natural pure premium forskolin capsules containing Coleus Forskohlii root extract.

How Does Forskolin Belly Buster Claim to Work?

First described as a “rapid belly melt” by Dr. Oz on his popular daytime TV program in May 2014, forskolin is a root-based chemical derived from the Plectranthus barbatus plant that has been used for centuries to treat heart-related disorders. More recently though, it’s come under close scrutiny, thanks in no small part to Dr. Oz, for its weight loss capabilities.

According to the Forskolin Belly Buster website, forskolin raises cyclic AMP (cAMP) levels in your body, which regulates the release of an enzyme called hormone sensitive lipase and helps your body to burn more fat. Each capsule of Forskolin Belly Buster is claimed to contain 10% forskolin, which is the “optimal dosage” to help you lose weight.

Forskolin Belly Buster Pricing & Refund Policy

Forskolin Belly Buster is available in 6 different purchasing options, including free shipping:

  • 1 Bottle: $53.98
  • Buy 2, Get 1 Free: $104.97
  • Buy 3, Get 2 Free: $144.95

Keep in mind that of the 3 purchasing options noted above, each also has an identically-priced autoship option. If you choose an autoship option, this means you’ll continue receiving a fresh supply of Forskolin Belly Buster on a regular basis, and your credit card will be charged accordingly, until you call to cancel.

There is no refund policy listed on the Forskolin Belly Buster website, and even after checking the Terms & Conditions, there is no specific refund policy listed. However, it does state, “We want you to be satisfied with our products and services. If you are ever not satisfied with any product that you ordered, you may call our customer service department toll-free at 1-855-509-5720 OR e-mail us at support@forskolinbellybuster.com and request a refund. If you are calling about refunding a purchase, our customer service team will handle it on a case by case basis.”

Can Forskolin Belly Buster Help You Lose Weight?

If you exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet, but just can’t seem to lose those extra few inches, can you reasonably expect Forskolin Belly Buster to help you shed fat and lose pounds? Consider the following:

Does Forskolin Actually Work?

Nearly all Forskolin supplements, including Trim 250 Forskolin and ApexVitality Forskolin (but curiously not Belly Buster Forskolin), reference this 2005 study as proof that forskolin can help you lose weight. However, it’s important to note that the participants experienced a change in body composition, but they did not lose weight.

In addition, WebMD claims that while forskolin may be beneficial for asthma and certain heart conditions, there is insufficient evidence showing that it can help individuals lose weight.

Because of this, at nearly $55 per bottle, the cost to benefit ratio of Forskolin Belly Buster seems to be fairly low.

Nutritional Label

As we mentioned in our Nutritional Supplements Buyer’s Guide, less-than-stellar supplements manufacturers tend to leave off a list of ingredients or a product label on their webpage. Because this information is also missing from the Forskolin Belly Buster site, we can’t be sure if forskolin is the only ingredient it contains, or how much of any ingredients it contains.

Also, according to Dr. Oz (the celebrity who first brought the supplement into light), you should take at least 125mg of 20% forskolin in order to experience any benefits. However, Belly Buster Forskolin only contains 10%, which is half of the recommended dosage.

Getting You to Buy

In our How Weight Loss Ads Convince You to Buy article, we detailed some of the psychological tricks of they trade often employed to separate you from your hard-earned money.

In the instance of Forskolin Belly Buster, they claim that they’re “The only authorized forskolin dealer in the US,” which, as you can see from the numerous other forskolin supplements on the market, this simply isn’t the case. Also, when searching online for Forskolin Belly Buster customer reviews, we found several instances of fake websites masquerading as legitimate reviews (oh something along the lines of this).

What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About Forskolin Belly Buster?

Forskolin Belly Buster appears to be a relatively new supplement (URL registered May 2014), so other than the fake review websites noted above, there were no online customer reviews available at the time of our research.

However, the top customer complaints related to other forskolin supplements, here on HighYa as well as other consumer review websites, are failure to work and difficulties cancelling free trials/autoship programs.

We also learned that the supplement is manufactured by Forskolin Belly Buster, LLC based out of Las Vegas, NV, although the company is not listed with the BBB.

Other Misc. Concerns

Finally, according to the Forskolin Belly Buster Privacy Policy, your information may be shared with third-party companies for marketing purposes. Also, by placing your order for Forskolin Belly Buster, you’ll be bound to an arbitration agreement should you decide to take legal action against the company, which means you’ll be waiving your rights to become a plaintiff in a lawsuit or part of a class action lawsuit.

Bottom Line

Considering the lack of a nutritional label, the lack of clinical evidence showing forskolin can help you lose weight, the supplement’s recent appearance on the market, and the company’s questionable marketing practices, we would recommend speaking with your physician about more reliable methods of losing weight.

However, if you’re determined to try it out, keep in mind that forskolin supplements can be purchased elsewhere online (and even at local retailers in some instances), often for much less money than Forskolin Belly Buster.

    NO. Don't Trust This Company.

    • Columbus, OH,

    I ordered a cheap 14 day trial for $4.95. There were no warnings or information about an automatic subscription. Two weeks go by, and I never received any product. Then I got charged $79.95. I called to ask for the charge to be refunded because I never received any product and they refused.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Just as stated above, I just went to check out what this product was about, and went to try one bottle and before I even confirmed to complete the order, they took my information and charged my card. Again, I didn't even complete the order and before I knew it I was charged $204.00.

      When the box showed up at my door and didn't say where it was from so, I sent it back with the mailman. I tried to dispute the charges, but I was still charged. I tried to dispute it because I sent it back, even though I didn't know what company it was from, I never opened the box. The box didn't even have the company name on it. It was the only thing that came to my house, so it had to be from that company. Again, I called, and they refused my money even though it was sent back immediately.

      They are a disgrace to companies that are legit on the internet, and now I will not purchase anything on the internet again unless it's a company that I have dealt with and I know for sure they are legit.

    No Good

    • Jackson, MN,

    It did not work for me. I canceled and still am receiving charges on my credit card and when I call, I get put on hold and then disconnected after a lengthy hold period. It is a scam.

    Stop charging me...

    • SC,
    • Oct 1, 2015

    After I received this product, I also received Garcinia Cambogia, which you can purchase at any pharmacy. I have returned products un-opened and am still getting charged for this stuff. Phone calls don't help. The company now owes me 3 times the charges.

    Free sample my butt. Don't fall for this.

    Not happy

    • Missouri,
    • May 26, 2015

    I ordered what I thought to be the Forskolin. What I got was the Forskolin and in a separate package. I got Garcinia Cambogia as well. I did not order it so I thought, but I sure got charged for it. Their web site is very misleading. You really need to take a look at terms and conditions very closely as well. I did get the auto ship and on the second month canceled and they are to remove the charges. I do not like to be force fed anything from anyone. This kind of selling tactics are very wrong. They are not upfront at all. Please be careful with this company and companies like them. Bad company. As for the product, I am still not sure yet. I did lose 4 lbs.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Total Fraud

    • Lake Orion ,
    • Apr 22, 2015

    This product is useless especially when I haven't been getting my order. I got my first order, which I thought was the end of it but looking at my credit card statement, I have been charged monthly with no product. Fraud!

    Scam artists

    • Massachusetts,
    • Feb 25, 2015

    This company is a scam. You order, then without your permission they keep sending bottles every month and keep charging your credit card. And when you call, a recording puts you on hold and no one ever picks up the phone, and they never return calls. I highly recommend -- do not do business with this company. It is a complete SCAM.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
