What Is Clenbuterol?
Clenbuterol is a beta-2 agonist used medically as an inhaled aerosol to
counteract bronchial constriction in the treatment of asthma. Animal studies
have shown that clenbuterol increases skeletal muscle mass and reduces
body fat. Its misuse has become widespread recently and it is readily available.
In the livestock industry beta-2 agonists have been used to some success in
increasing lean muscle mass and reducing adipose disposition and this has
led to its popularity in the illicit AS-using market. The pharmacodynamic
effects of clenbuterol have yet to be established, with studies producing
conflicting data. However, it is believed that clenbuterol increases the rate
of muscle protein deposition and promotes lipolysis in skeletal and cardiac
muscle only. It exerts a suppressive effect on protein degradation and increases the intramuscular concentration of proteolytic proteinase inhibitor
What are Clenbuterol’s Effects?
Clenbuterol most specifically binds to the beta-2 receptor, which is directly related to fat loss. When this receptor is activated, the body is prompted to release fatty acids into circulation (lowering fat stores). Clenbuterol also acts as a strong CNS stimulant, and users quite commonly report associated side effects like shaky hands, insomnia, sweating, increased blood pressure and nausea during treatment. Such side effects generally subside after a week or so once the user becomes accustomed to the drug. Only consider clenbuterol when the stimulating effects of Phenyltropic PPA have subsided.
