Commercial presentation

Clenbuterol is a bronchodilator used a few years ago in veterinary medicine, particularly for racehorses. At the time, it was marketed under the name Ventipulmin.
Nowadays, its use has been hijacked by athletes and it is used as a fat burner. Its appeal lies in its ability to metabolize adipose tissue while supporting muscle fibres.


Clenbuterol, advantages and disadvantages

  • Due to its action on thermogenesis and its anti-catabolic properties, the ClenbuterolAllows you to lose fatty tissue while preserving muscle mass.
  • Clenbuterol is harmful to heart function, and can cause ventricular arrhythmia, various heart problems including organ enlargement and eventually heart attack. These side effects are irreversible.
  • Clenbuterol induces cramps, particularly at night. They can occur at any time. Some users supplement with Taurine to reduce these undesirable effects.
  • It is not recommended to perform cardio type activities with clenbuterol, it has a negative effect on endurance.
  • Possible side effects include: uncontrolled shaking, high blood pressure, headaches, swollen joints, allergic reactions...
  • There's no point in taking Clenbuterol for more than 14 days in a row, as it saturates the cortisone receptors and induces a tolerance that renders it ineffective.


Clenbuterol, our opinion and recommendations

- To avoid cramps, we recommend drinking plenty of water and taking Taurine and electrolytes.

- To counter unwanted effects, it's customary to start with a low dosage for the first few days, then increase in stages.

- It is advisable to avoid drugs and alcohol during treatment, to avoid a potentially dangerous (even fatal) antabuse effect

- Taking clenbuterol in alternation, two weeks ON then two weeks OFF or two days ON then two days OFF, helps to avoid saturating the receptors too quickly.


Association ideas

- Combining Clenbuterol with winstrol for an effective dryness cure is a very popular treatment for bodybuilders.

- the use of T3 cytomel is probably the most popular stacking method, as it achieves maximum dryness thanks to the synergistic effect of the two products.

- It may be useful to combine testosterone with Clenbuterol, to reinforce the anti-catabolic effect which will limit muscle loss in the dry phase.
