Clenbuterol is a very interesting and remarkable compound. It is not a steroid hormone but a beta-2-symphatomimetic. Its effects,however can by all means be compared to those of steroids. Similar to a combination of Winstrol Depot and Anavar, Clenbuterol can cause a solid, highly qualitative muscle growth which goes hand in hand with a significant strength gain. Clenbuterol, above all, has a strong anticatabolic effect, which means it decreases the rate at which protein is reduced in the muscle cell, consequently causing an enlargement of muscle cells. For this reason, numerous athletes use Clenbuterol after steroid treatment to balance the resulting catabolic phase and thus obtain maximum strength and muscle mass. A further aspect of Clenbuterol is its distinct fat-burning effect. Clenbuterol burns fat without dieting because it increases the body temperature slightly, forcing the body to burn fat for this process. Clenbuterol, in the meantime, is not only a favorite competition compound among professional bodybuilders. An especially intense fat-burning occurs when Clenbuterol is combined with the LT3-thyroid hormone compound Cytomel. Due to the higher body temperature Clenbuterol magnifies the effect of anabolic/androgenic steroids taken simultaneously, since the protein processing is increased. The dosage depends on body weight and can be optimized by measuring the body temperature. Athletes usually take 5-7 tablets,100-140 mcg per day. For women 80-100 mcg/day are usually sufficient. It is important that the athlete begin by taking only one tablet on the first day and then increasing the dosage by one tablet each of the following days until the desired maximum dosage is reached. Following, there are several schedules for taking Clenbuterol.
On the one hand, emphasis is placed on the burning of fat; on the other hand, importance is placed on a balanced relationship between strength and muscle growth as well as fat reduction. The compound is usually taken over a period of 8-10 weeks. Since Clenbuterol is not a hormone compound it has no side effects typical of anabolic steroids For this reason it is also liked by women. Possible side effects of Clenbuterol include restlessness, palpitations, tremor (involuntary trembling of fingers), headache, increased perspiration, insomnia, possible muscle spasms, increased blood pressure, and nausea. Note that these side effects are of a temporary nature and usually subside after 8-10 days, despite continuation of the product. In the meantime, Clenbuterol is well distributed on the black market and costs between $0.70 and $1.20 per 0.02 mg tablet. Throughout Europe the substance Clenbuterol hydrocloride must be prescribed by a physician. Clenbuterol is not officially available in the U.S.
