Clenbuterol Hydrochloride or Clen is a widely used powerful bronchodilator that is used to treat breathing problems like asthma. Clen is widely used as a prescribed drug in many countries, especially in Europe and Asia to improve asthmatic symptoms. Other than its application as prescribed drug, Clenbuterol is widely used as a thermogenic, i.e. it is used to lose excess fat from the body and control unnecessary fat formation in the body. Due to its unique efficiency to control and reduce body fat, it is widely used by body builders, athletes, other sports persons and cine stars to get attractive body shape and developed muscles.
How does Clen work in the body to lose fat?
Clenbuterol Hydrochloride directly works on the sympathomimetic nervous system. There are numerous receptors in the body which depends on the neurotransmitters released by the sympathomimetic nervous system. Clenbuterol actively stimulates the beta-2 receptor. In this way, Clen vigorously reverses airway blocks and provides an improved breathing system in the patients suffering from asthma. This same beta-2 stimulation can also boost up the metabolic rate of the individual using Clen regularly. The positive aspect of Clen is that it doesn’t burn fat on its own, rather stimulates the metabolism by increasing the temperature in the body.
As the beta-2 stimulation stimulate the mitochondria of the cells, more heat is produced within the body as whole. In turn, this increased heat in the body, enhances the metabolism leading to increased rates of burning fat. As such Clen’s working process in the body is very simple.
Besides, several studies have proved that Clenbuterol has a strong anabolic effect. Due to this characteristic of Clen, many individuals use Clen for gaining lean tissue. Usually, many anabolic steroid users use Clen as an anabolic protective ingredient during their post cycle therapy.
Administration of Clenbuterol
Experts fix therapeutic doses of Clen depending on the individual needs and metabolic capacity. Most commonly, for treating asthma, Clenbuterol doses vary from 20mcg to 40mcg per day. In some situations, patients may need more than this common dose, but that is not used for a long time.
The body takes sometimes to adapt to Clenbuterol. So, it is generally administered in low quantities at first and then the doses are increased slowly. For men, 40mcg per day is considered as a perfect dose to start this steroid, and for women 20mcg is fixed as the perfect initial dose. After every 2-3 weeks the doses can be increased slowly. For men, doses can be increased up to 100mcg daily and for women 60mcg daily.
The most effective cycle for Clen, as opined by the experts, is 2 weeks’ continuous use of Clen and then 2 weeks off. But, Clen should not be used for more than 12 months’ period at a stretch. Clen has fewer side effects than other steroids when this cycle is implemented seriously.
Clenbuterol is absolutely safe and have fewer side effects than other steroids when the doses and cycles are maintained as advised by an expert. However, bodybuilders and all other individuals should also take care of their eating habits and need to maintain a strict exercise regimen to get maximum benefits from this very efficient anabolic steroid.
