Clenbuterol, or as it’s otherwise know Clen, is a potent fat loss drug that is typically used in cutting cycles.
Clenbuterol is not a steroid, but instead a central nervous system stimulant that belongs to the large ‘drug family’ known as sympathomimetics which also include well known compounds such as amphetamines, caffeine, cocaine and ephedrine.
Clen B’s original use as a ,medicine was to help treat asthma and other conditions, working by stimulating special receptors called Beta 2 receptors that help improve the obstruction of airways for better breathing.
In recent years, the fat burning properties of Clenbuterol have made it the drug of choice for athletes in cutting, pre-contest and fat loss cycles.
Popular among bodybuilders and athletes for its thermogenic and anti-catabolic effects, Clenbuterol directly stimulates fat cells and enhances the breakdown of triglycerides. Clen B is also popular with female athletes as it doesn’t produce the androgenic side effects that come with anabolic steroids.
Clenbuterol works by slightly increasing the body’s core temperature which in turn burns more calories. The effects on the nervous system and the heart mimic those of amphetamines and adrenaline, resulting in the reduction of fat deposits and increases in lean muscle mass.
This means that Clen B works at the level of muscles and fat cells combined, and is highly effective at releasing stored body fat and growth of skeletal muscle.
As Clenbuterol is not classed as a steroid, it doesn’t render any of the side effects one would experience with the use of anabolic steroids. Instead, the side effects that can occur include those related to stimulants.
The side effects that can come from taking this drug range from mild to severe depending on the individuals make up.
A common side effect that has been reported in users includes feeling of “jitters”, anxiety, shaking hands, cramping and increased sweating.
The effects of one dose can last for 36 hours and other people have reported headaches and sleeplessness.
Some of the more dangerous side effects include a rise in blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, episodes of panic and in rare cases, cardiac hypertrophy. Cardiac Hypertrophy is a condition where the size of the heart is enlarged due to an increased workload.
Clenbuterol is commonly used on its own, or can be used in conjunction with other compounds. The typical dosage for a man is 60-140mcg split through the day and 40-120mg for women. Ideally this drug should be taken 2 days on and 2 days off.
