INTRODUCTION : Native to the subtropical regions of India, Myanmar and Thailand, Coleus root powder is a spice and medicinal herb with a long history of usage in Ayurvedic medicine. The root of coleus contains the highest levels of the active ingredient, forskolin. A perennial herb growing wild in the warm temperate areas in India, powder of coleus root, may help dilate blood vessels and improve the forcefulness with which the heart pumps blood.
MANUFACTURING PROCESS OF COLEUS POWDER: Coleus powder is processed from Dry Coleus Roots. The Coleus roots are first washed thoroughly to remove physical impurities. After washing, the Coleus roots are pulped. Pulping of Coleus roots is followed by sun drying to reduce its moisture content. The product obtained is then grinded and sieved to obtain fine powdered coleus root. After this , the dry Coleus root powder is packed airtight for storage and transportation.

 

HISTORY OF COLEUS USE IN INDIA : In India, it is cultivated for use as a condiment. It is also been grown as an ornamental herb.

 

PHARMACOLOGY : The main action of forskolin is to activate adenyl cyclase, an enzyme responsible for the convertion of ATP to cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP). Cyclic AMP is one of the most important “second messengers”, a signaling hormone system in cell regulation. Most water-soluble hormones cannot cross the cell membrane, but instead cause the acquired effects within cells via these second messengers.

Raised intracellular cAMP level will have physiological and biochemical effects like, parathyroid hormone causes the reabsorption of calcium from bone, vasopressin in kidney helps the reabsorption of water and trigliyceride (fat) breakdown in fat cells and increased thyroid functions.

Lipolysis (breakdown of fat) is largely governed by the amount of cAMP circulating in cells. Cyclic AMP will activates protein kinasea which stimulates the release of fatty acids from fat cells.
