Clenbuterol Hydrochloride (Clen) is a bronchodilator that was created to treat breathing disorders, mostly asthma. The drug has never been approved by the US FDA because there were already several very similar medications, with almost identical properties, which had already been approved in the US by the time Clenbuterol was released. However, Clen is legalized in lots of countries around the world, including European Union countries, as an asthma drug.
In the bodybuilding industry, Clen is commonly used as a thermogenic drug. That’s because Clenbuterol stimulates beta-2 receptors as a beta-2 agonist the same as ephedrine. Nowadays, Clenbuterol is used more frequently in fat loss plans than for its original purpose. Among Clen users aren’t only bodybuilders, there are also models, singers, actors, sportsmen, housewives etc.
Clen is classified as a beta-2 sympathomimetic drug, it stimulates beta-2 receptors in your body by imitating your body’s natural adrenaline. Such stimulations actively remove airway obstructions and enhance the metabolic rate of the person. The results of those stimulations are improved breathing and greater fat loss.
Effects of Clenbuterol
The effects of Clen on the patients who are using it to treat breathing diseases are very simple. The medication opens up the airways and allows the person to breathe.
In bodybuilding, Clenbuterol is almost always used as a fat burner in cutting cycles. The drug increases the body’s temperature by stimulating beta-2 receptors. When body temperature goes up the metabolism is enhanced, which allows the burning of calories at a greater rate. Most users noticed a significant increase in lean mass after Clenbuterol use. Clen has valuable properties: it’s a fat burning medication, and has the ability to aid in muscle retention, which reduces muscle loss. So, the pills basically allow you to stay big and ripped, which is why lots of professional bodybuilders include Clen in their cutting cycles.
Though Clenbuterol is a proven powerful fat loss medication, it’s not going to work without proper nutrition and workout program. The drug isn’t going to melt fat off your body, but it can help you to lose fat at a greater rate with the right diet.
Clen works the best when you’re already relatively lean and you just want to remove the last fat from your body. Clenbuterol can’t be used for a long period of time, so I would recommend using Clen only if your body fat is less than 20%, otherwise you should start losing fat without it. When your body becomes leaner you can add the drug to your plan.
Side effects of Clenbuterol
Clenbuterol is a stimulant and therefore has a stimulating nature; its side effects are quite different than those of steroids. The side effects of Clen are often very annoying and unbearable for some people. Moreover, almost all Clenbuterol users will experience side effects in one way or another.
The most common side effects that will occur for most users are: Shaky hands, this side effect generally appears in the beginning and fades after a few days. The next most frequent side effect is anxiety, or wired feeling, the same as with the previous side effect, it usually goes away after a few days. The third most frequent of Clenbuterol’s side effects is cramps, this side effect isn’t exceedingly common among housewifes, but athletes are at the greatest risk due to hard training. Consuming a huge quantity of fluid can help to avoid or soften this side effect.
Less common side effects that can appear are:
- abnormal sweating
Some severe side effects are also possible, however such side effects are typically associated with huge dosages and long periods of use. The severe side effects of Clen include: heart palpitations, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, and even panic attacks.
There are several methods of administering Clen in bodybuilding. The most popular one is a two week rotation. This method is so popular simply because Clenbuterol stops working after 2 weeks of use for most people due to a deregulation of the central nervous system’s beta-2 receptors; in simple words, the body quickly adapts to Clenbuterol. This type of use can last until the goal is achieved. You should start using it in small doses and gradually increase it until it reaches the needed dose. The problem with this method is that during the 2 week break there will be no Clen in your system, therefore your metabolic rate will not be enhanced.
Typical example of administration
|Week||Clenbuterol (Men)||Clenbuterol (Women)|
Another popular method is to start with small doses, usually 10-20mcg daily, and increase the dosage every 2 weeks by 10-20mcg daily. This method can work for a long time because when your body adapts to 20mcg per day, by the end of the second week, you will increase the dosage. This method lets you enjoy an enhanced metabolism during the entire period of use.

How to buy Clenbuterol
There are a few ways to buy Clenbuterol in the US. You can purchase Clen from a local steroid source, online steroid source, or research chemical lab (RCL). While Clenbuterol is not an androgenic anabolic steroid and it isn’t a controlled substance in the US, the only legal method of purchasing it is through a research chemical lab (RCL). Some RCL’s are selling SERM’s, peptides, and other drugs that aren’t controlled but are for research purposes only.
Purchasing Clenbuterol through an RCL isn’t always the best decision because lots of those labs do not produce high quality products. The drugs can be underdosed or overdosed. So, if you decide to buy Clen from one of the RCL’s you should spend some time doing your research. If you have a proven high quality steroid source it would be smart to obtain Clenbuterol there.
