Interessierte Leser können in diesen Quellen weitere Informationen zum Hintergrund vor allem zur Wirkung von Forskolin in Bezug auf die Haut finden. Die Rolle des cAMP in der gesunden Haut habe ich auch in meinem Buch  „Das Psoriasis-Syndrom“ ausführlich beschrieben, mit vielen weiteren Literaturangaben  (ISBN 978-3745088403, eBook ISBN 978-3754937891).
