History and Overview
First of all, we would like to make it clear that Clenbuterol is by no means an anabolic steroid. Instead, it belongs to a vast ‘drug family’ known as sympathomimetics which also comprises widely known compounds such as amphetamines, Albuterol, ephedrine, and caffeine.
Originally used in the treatment of asthma, Clenbuterol is a highly efficient bronchodilator frequently administered as the main active drug in inhalers. The medical use of Clenbuterol also includes the treatment of various other conditions such as cardiovascular shocks, hypertension, heart arrhythmias, anaphylactic shocks, allergic reactions and swellings, migraines, and histamine reactions.
Is it legal to use and buy Clenbuterol in the UK?

What about the USA and rest of the world?
Though Clenbuterol is not FDA approved for human use, its possession for personal use is currently legal in the U.S.
It is also illegal to purchase in Canada and Australia.

What results can I expect?
Since recent studies have demonstrated its minimal anabolic activity in muscle tissue, this fat burner has become an attractive drug for many athletes.
Due to its thermogenic properties, Clenbuterol directly stimulates fat cells and accelerates the breakdown of triglycerides, thus forming free fatty acids. Its increased efficacy makes Clenbuterol a very attractive pre-contest drug, promoting body fat loss, enhanced aerobic capacity, as well as strength and muscle mass increase.
The stimulant effects of this drug on the nervous system and on the heart practically resemble the effects of amphetamines and adrenaline, leading to reduced fat deposits and increased lean muscle mass.
Since it works both at the level of the muscles and fat cells, it is able to combine both lipolytic (the release of stored body fat) and thermogenic (calories are burned through heat production) properties in one single pill.
However, despite its amazing efficiency, special attention should be paid to the side effects it causes, especially if you suffer from cardiovascular disorders. So make sure you thoroughly educate yourself in its correct use and dosage.
How it works
Since it has proved to be rather inefficient during bulking phases, most athletes use Clenbuterol exclusively in fat loss, cutting, and pre-contest cycles.
Among this drugs main benefits, we can highlight:
• Dilation of arteries which leads to skeletal muscle (due to an enhanced oxygen transportation to muscles)
• Promotes lipolysis and increases the metabolic rate
• Improves the aerobic capacity by relaxing the muscles in the bronchi
• Improves the protein storage in the muscles
• Reduces visceral and abdominal fat
Unlike in the case of other weight loss supplements, the results become visible rather quickly. After only one week, you will start to notice your body being able to cope with longer and more intense workout routines. After all, losing weight easily, and, at the same time retain lean muscle is something any athlete would want to enjoy.
Clenbuterol dosage and use
Popular among both men and women alike, Clenbuterol can be used either on its own or in conjunction with other compounds. Whether run alone or not, this does not influence the way in which these cycles should be run.
Men may use the drug in Clenbuterol only cycles in split dosages of 60-140 mcg/ day, while female athletes may use it in split dosages of 40-120 mcg/day. However, the dosage should be adapted to the particular conditions of each athlete.
Due to the fact that, after ingestion, it remains in the body for almost 48 hours, it should be ideally used in 2-day on/2-day off cycles. Since it may deplete the Potassium in the body, many athletes complement the cycles with 3-4 bananas or potassium tablets every day. While on this drug, athletes should consider following a low fat, high protein, and moderate carbohydrate diet.
Since the body gets used to this drug rather quickly, it is advisable to use this drug during short periods of time (i.e. 4-6 weeks) and complement the cycle with compounds such as Ketotifen to avoid receptors down-regulation.
Potential Clenbuterol side effects
Despite its amazing fat burning effects, it does come with a series of potentially serious side effects:
• Cardiovascular side effects: high blood pressure, tachycardia, severe headaches
• Psychological side effects: since it acts on the nervous system, Clenbuterol may cause nervousness, insomnia, anxiety, tremors
• Cramps: since it depletes the Taurine amino acid, it may cause cramps
However, the severity of these side effects depends on each individual’s health condition and his/her ability to integrate the cycle into a proper dieting and workout routine.
Abuse may lead to severe muscle cramps, headaches, heartburn, excessive sweating, anxiety, face flushes, or restlessness.
Can it damage the heart and other organs?
As already explained, the use of this fat can have severe side effects. It is extremely important to understand that you will not lose fat by simply taking – or, even worse, abusing these fat burner pills.
Giving up poor diets and setting up exercise programs should always accompany these cycles. It is also advisable to ask for your physician’s opinion before using this drug, especially if you suffer from cardiovascular or thyroid disorders.
Will it make me aggressive?
It can cause nervousness and anxiety. People who already suffer from psychological disorders such as depression may experience these side effects to a higher degree.
However, Clenbuterol will not annihilate your free will and your capacity to discern between good and evil.
