How successful is clenbuterol

Clenbuterol is usually confused with steroids, but it is important to know that it is not a steroid. Though it is used in stack with other anabolic steroids by athletes and bodybuilders. It is essentially a stimulant or more precisely, a sympathomimetic amine like Albuterol and Caffeine.

Uses of clenbuterol:

Originally clenbuterol was used for treatment of horses because of its smooth muscle relaxant properties. But it is also used for various other purposes. For example:

  • Used as a decongestant (a decongestant thins the blood and reduces the blood pressure)
  • Used as a bronchodilator (a bronchodilator widens the oxygen carrying blood vessels, so as to increase the amount of oxygen in blood)
  • Earlier it was also used by the vets
  • Some farmers also used it to Beef up livestock (feeding it to animals so that they can gain more muscle and less fat)
  • As a weight loss aid
  • As a fat loss aid

It is popularly usedby the bodybuilders for its potential as a weight loss aid. Clenbuterol increases metabolism and helps in reducing fat without affecting the person’s muscle mass and body strength. Testimonials from men and women who used clenbuterol for losing fat and weight, affirm its potential as a stimulant for losing weight.

Though it is highly effective in losing weight, it is equally important to mould your diet and exercise plan in such a way that it accentuates the clenbuterol. It is necessary to burn more calories than you take for the weight loss to be apparent. Clenbuterol alone would not be as effective in losing weight as it would be with proper, less calorie diet and fat burning exercises.
