But what exactly is Clenbuterol and how does it work?
Clenbuterol is a β2 agonist that possesses both structural and pharmacological similarities to epinephrine and salbutamol, also known as Albuterol. Clenbuterol is especially popular with athletes and sportsmen as the effects are more potent and last longer when used as a thermogenic drug and stimulent.
Clenbuterol is renowned for providing a dramatic increase in aerobic capacity levels, vibrant stimulation of the central nervous system and improvements of oxygen transportation in the blood stream. Clenbuterol is an effective bronchodilator and tocolytic because of its ability to smoothly relax muscles.
Clenbuterol is also noted for its ability to burn fat by increasing the basal metabolic rate of the body.
Clenbuterol is also recognized for its ability to promote cardiovascular exercise. Patients have successfully used Clenbuterol to help lose stubborn fat deposits. Studies have shown that Clenbuterol helps break down protein stored in muscle cells and redirecting loss of fat in areas to be emphasized during a fat loss plan.
Clenbuterol is known for its ability to suppress appetites for up to 9 hours.
Clenbuterol is also recommended for patients with a variety of health conditions including: ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), cardiovascular shock, hypertension. anaphylactic shock, migraine headaches and asthma and asthma-related respiratory conditions.
Because of Clenbuterol’s unique properties, it can help with the loss of adipose tissues to help increase physique developments with cuts and striations. Used as a weight and fat loss drug, Clenbuterol can be beneficial by freeing up more glucose in the body by inhibiting insulin and reversing glycogen storage on the cellular level. Clenbuterol is also invaluable in repartition, a physiological process in which fat is separated from the body to increase muscle mass.
Combined with a proper diet and healthy exercise, Clenbuterol can lead to an increased sense of well-being. The selective beta-2 agonist has been proven to stimulate both type 2 and 3 beta-receptors in order to consume body fat and rapidly increase muscle mass.
Several studies have demonstrated that careful use of Clenbuterol can lead to reduction of 5-10% in maintenance calories when trying to reduce body fat.
Albuterol – the milder version of Clenbuterol
Albuterol, also known as Salbutamol, is a short-acting β2-adrenergic receptor agonist that is used to provide relief from bronchospasms as part of a treatment regime for asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other respiratory illnesses.
Albuterol can be taken orally, as an inhalant, or intravenously. The onset of effects is usually between five and 20 minutes from dosing, although many patients report a noticeable effect immediately.
Patients using Albuterol are advised to also consume amino acids, particular taurine, Omega 3, CLA, ALA, and milk thistle to prevent concomitant liver toxicity and the depletion of taurine and potassium levels in the body.
Albuterol is designed to bind with beta 2 andrenergic receptors found on cells to activate lipase. This body enzyme is then free to break up and blast fat into floating free fatty acids. Just as with Clenbuterol, Albuterol is a potent lipolytic (fat burning) agent and can increase the basal metabolic rate to speed up the burning of free fatty acids as fuel. Many patients use Albuterol to treat reversible obstructive airway disease and to help reduce or eliminate exercise-induced bronchospasms.
Albuterol offers many of the same advantages as Clenbuterol but with less exposure to associated side effects such as sleeplessness, excessive sweating, shaking and an increased heart rate. Albuterol is also used to increase protein synthesis and prevent muscle catabolism. Albuterol places less strain on the heart and cardiovascular system, however, the drug has a shorter effective period.
The so-called “half life” of Clenbuterol is 7-9 hours while Albuterol has a “half life” of only 3-4 hours.
Many patients who currently use Albuterol and previously used Clenbuterol report that they suffer from less diminished cognition and feel a “cleaner” type of stimulation than with Clenbuterol. Many users also report that overall body strength and endurance gains made with Albuterol are better and quicker than with Clenbuterol.
So which one is better? Clen or Albuterol
Clenbuterol is the preferred choice for individuals looking to gain body strength and increase muscle power. Many savvy users have caught on to the fact that Clenbuterol is cheaper and easily available with longer-lasting effects.
Albuterol has fewer side effects but many users will require more frequent dosing to achieve the desired effects.
Clenbuterol can achieve its maximum potential when consumed on a 2-day or 3-week cycle, consumed once or twice per day during the “on” period and then usage is reduced to zero on the corresponding “off” period.
Regular Clenbuterol users are advised to consume 7-9 glasses of water per day to ensure ample hydration. Discomfort in the form of muscle cramps may be the result of a taurine and potassium deficiency. The consumption of natural foods or approved nutritional supplements containing taurine and potassium is recommended.
Clenbuterol is commonly concomitantly consumed with T3 Cytolmel of between 12.5 and 25 micrograms per day. A diet that includes moderate carbohydrate intake (0.5-1g per lb of bodyweight), high protein (1.5g/lb of bodyweight), and low fat (0.25g/lb of bodyweight) is recommended for Clenbuterol users to achieve their maximum potential in realizing personal goals and dreams.
Clenbuterol is an excellent choice for prudent users who have carefully analyzed their needs and are ready to ameliorate some of the side effects. Albuterol, with its milder side effects and more forgiving treatment regime, is slowly gaining popularity but still has much ground to gain before achieving the widespread usage of Clenbuterol.
