Coleus forskohlii has been used for centuries in traditional Ayurvedic medicine, but it wasn’t until 1974 that the active ingredient, known as forskolin, was identified by researchers. Still yet, it wasn’t until Dr. Oz featured forskolin on his popular daytime TV show in early 2014 that everyone started talking about it—and supplements manufacturers started producing the product in droves.
