Forskolin activates cAMP. But what’s cAMP?
Forskolin contains 3 substances which stimulate cAMP (substances colforsin daropate, NKH477 and FSK88)(study).
cAMP is important for the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is a very small part of the brain (size of a pea) right in the middle of the brain mainly controlled by mainly dopamine hormones (study). Forskolin activates cAMP and this makes forskolin improves memory, attention and mood.
cAMP promotes nerve-cell growth and nerve-cell regeneration after trauma (study).
cAMP is necessary for the normal development of sight (study).
Forskolin will also be improving your hearing (study).
Forskolin increases the production of TrkB protein in mice, allowing lost memories to be retrieved (study). This makes it likely that forskolin improves memory in humans as well. Mice and humans are alike according to www.genome.gov: On average, the protein-coding regions of the mouse and human genomes are 85 percent identical.
Tim Ferris told Joe Rogan during an interview on YouTube that the combination of forskolin and artichoke is an natural alternative for modafinil.
You can find forskolin and artichoke as ingredients in the natural Omnimind nootropic.
