Clenbuterol has been topping the fat burner charts recently. This is in part from the publicity it is getting from the magazines about the many celebrities who are using it to burn fat.
Originally, it was meant to be a bronchodilator for treating asthma along with other conditions. Generally, the tablet form is preferred over the liquid, and the usual dosage is 20mcg. However, 40mcg is now available as well.
It seems that more and more people are beginning to look to drugs like Clenbuterol, which happens to be used in the US to treat asthma in horses. What makes this work is that it has a side effect that builds muscle and results in weight loss.
The medication Clenbuterol works best in a pyramid scheme. Establishing a tolerance to the dosage is more important than slowly discontinuing the cycle. For first time users, 20 to 40 mcg per day is considered a good starting point and most people in general find 120 mcg to be sufficient.
Over the course of 3 to 4 weeks, Clenbuterol attributes such as nerve stimulation and fat burning slowly diminish unless combined with Ketotifen.
However, using Clenbuterol for long durations is not advised. A Clenbuterol cycle should last approximately 2 to 3 weeks before discontinuing its usage and repeating the process.
However, Clenbuterol is often combined with other fat burning products to achieve weight loss quickly.
For such purposes, Cytomel is usually taken in addition to Clenbuterol while overlapping and alternating the cycle by a period of 3 weeks, since there are some known side effects that accompany a dosage increase such as: raise in body temperature, blood pressure and in some instances jitters and insomnia.
However, most side effects experienced while taking this drug are known to diminish once the body becomes acclimated to the drug. Consulting with a doctor is highly recommended. Particularly, for those who have had previous cardio-vascular or high blood pressure issues.
Clenbuterol actually causes your body to increase its production and secretion of catabolic hormones. These hormones come from the adrenal region. One of the things that they do is alter the characteristics of smooth muscle.
Some muscles become stimulated, while others become inhibited. The smooth muscles in the bronchial tree are among the ones that become inhibited, so this explains why it helps those with breathing problems.
The main contributor to weight loss is the fact that Clenbuterol increases thermogenesis. What this does is temporarily raise the blood pressure, stimulating the heart and thus raising the body temperature.
Another effect is that Clenbuterol reverses the effect of insulin, inhibiting its action. This results in a release of glycogen back into the blood stream as glucose, and an inability to keep and utilize more glycogen. Clenbuterol then increases the rate of protein and fat getting burned inside the body.
The combination of thermogenesis with more fat being burned will generally result in a higher metabolic rate. This means the person will burn more calories. Burning more calories results in the shedding of fat, this is the result that everyone desires.
