Clenbuterol hydrochloride - the basis of a single-component supplement and the drug "Clenbuterol" - is an adrenergic stimulant with a bronchodilator effect, manifested due to the excitation of adrenoreceptors. For this reason, the drug is included in the group of beta-adrenomimetics, as well as high performance broncholeptics. And for the same reason it is recommended ... for weight loss. How to take clenbuterol for this purpose, and is it worth the risk?
"Clenbuterol": general characteristics of the drug
Release form - clear syrup, 100 ml bottles have a measuring spoon in the set.
- The key auxiliary components in the preparation are sorbitol, glycerol, propylene glycol, ethanol at a concentration of 96%. Pure clenbuterol is not produced, due to the ban on its use as an adrenergic stimulator. And for the bronchodilator effect, mitigation in the form of auxiliary components is required.
The main focus of Clenbuterol is the treatment of respiratory diseases associated with viscous sputum. Due to a complex chemical reaction, the bronchi are relaxed, as well as inhibition of their inflammation and new spasms, reduction of puffiness and prevention of stagnation of the mucous membrane. The drug has a high degree of efficiency: relief comes in 10-15 minutes. after inhalation or 1-1.5 hours after taking the syrup. The maximum concentration of the active substance is observed after 3 hours, with a duration of effect of 12 hours.
- Indications for use "Clenbuterol" - bronchial asthma and obstructive pulmonary disease in the chronic or acute stage. The drug is approved for use in children older than 6 years. However, the course should not last more than 3 days, since “Clenbuterol” is not focused on long-term therapy: its task is to remove acute states.
As it turned out, the active substance has a lot of contraindications and side effects: besides the fact that it is prohibited for pregnant and lactating women, as well as young children, its use is unacceptable for thyrotoxicosis, tachycardia, arrhythmia, myocardial infarction.
- Side effects were recorded by the nervous and cardiovascular systems (increase and decrease in pressure, instability of the pulse, tremor, headache), the digestive system (nausea, vomiting, dyspepsia), and skin allergic reactions (itching, rash). In case of overdose, the drug must be discontinued.
Bronkholetik - in bodybuilding?
The active substance and the drug itself are not only used for coughing: the chemical reactions that take place in the body with its help have led to clenbuterol being found effective in burning the fatty layer. Because of this, they began to include it in sports supplements for those who needed to change the percentage ratio of muscle and fat mass by decreasing the latter - “to dry”. However, it is not considered anabolic (substances that trigger testosterone production), since it has no effect on protein synthesis in muscle tissue.
- The physiological effect of clenbuterol is based on the excitation of adrenoreceptors, which drive lipolysis - the very splitting of fat cells. When this occurs, the inhibition of lipase synthesis and an increase in the production of thyroid hormones occurs. It is noteworthy that it does not allow the destruction of muscle tissue.
- In sports medicine, as a result of scientific experiments, clenbuterol was not only able to burn fat, but also improve endurance (especially the respiratory system, which is associated with its bronchodilator effect), activate the nervous system, increase body temperature and block hunger.
It was these moments that became the main ones in the subsequent practice of using “Clenbuterol” for weight loss not only among athletes, but also among ordinary girls who want to correct their figure. It should also be noted here that in sports, clenbuterol has been banned as an active component since 1992, and is defined as doping in tests.
Instructions for losing weight with Clenbuterol
If we are not talking about the professional use of the drug (which is punishable by disqualification or withdrawal from the national team), then among fans it is still in great demand. They resort to sports supplements based on it (a prescription is necessary for acquiring a doctor) and to a classical bronchodilator syrup, however, the effect of it usually does not meet expectations. And from the positive aspects - only a decrease in the proportion of adverse reactions to the active substance. For the active breakdown of fat cells requires clenbuterol as a sports supplement. How to take clenbuterol for weight loss?
- The drug should be combined with a diet for drying or losing weight (the minimum requirement is the restriction of simple carbohydrates, a change in the balance between proteins, fats and carbohydrates): otherwise the result from its use may be absent or insignificant.
- The duration of the drug is 10-14 days, after which the course is interrupted. If the effect is insufficient, it is allowed to repeat after 14-28 days. Such a requirement is caused by the addiction of the organism to clenbuterol. It is also undesirable to exceed the dosages given below, since this will not affect the result.
- For women, the maximum daily amount of Clenbuterol is 100 mcg, for men - 140. At the same time, the lower limit varies depending on body weight and body sensitivity, the upper one is prohibited.
- The effectiveness of the course of weight loss with clenbuterol may be influenced by ketotifen, contributing to more active splitting of fat cells. According to the instructions, for weight loss, the dosage of Clenbuterol is increased gradually, with an equal “step”: i.e. if it was decided to add 10 micrograms per day, this is maintained throughout the course. An organism with a high sensitivity is recommended to start with a "step" of 5 µg. The chart below is for girls.
- The daily dose of clenbuterol on the 1st day is 10 mcg. Up to the 6th day (inclusive) increases by 5-10 mkg.
- The interval from 6 to 12 days keeps the same daily dose, maximum at this stage. The total amount of the drug is divided into 2 parts: for the morning and for the afternoon use.
- On the 13th and 14th day, "convergence" is produced by reducing the amount of clenbuterol. "Step" is 10-20 mcg: 2 times more than it was when lifting.
Since the drug has a stimulating effect on the nervous system, it is not recommended to take it later than 6 hours before sleep. When increasing the dose it is desirable to carry out the reception in the morning. We should also mention about ketotifen, whose task is to restore the lost susceptibility of the body to clenbuterol. With it, you can significantly extend the course of weight loss (up to 30 days) or to accelerate the appearance of the results of the 14-day course.
- Reception of ketotifen begins on the 5th day, when 1 μg of this substance is injected.
- On the 7th day, 2 µg of ketotifen is already taken, and this dose is maintained up to the 12th or 28th day (depending on the selected course duration).
- On the 13th and 14th (29th and 30th) days, 1 µg of ketotifen each.
In this case, the schedule for taking clenbuterol remains unchanged, and ketotifen is taken in the evening, you can just before bedtime - it facilitates falling asleep due to the sedative effect on the nervous system.
Reviews of girls
Opinions about the drug are mostly positive, and if one analyzes them, it can be argued that he is rewarded with a negative assessment only in case of non-compliance with rules and precautions.
Tatyana: She didn’t know anything about sports supplements before, so she started taking clenbuterol with caution. I tried with a minimum dose - 1/2 tablet, which is equivalent to 10 μg. During the week I increased the qualification; there were no problems. Has sustained the whole course (14 days), the body has really become much more attractive: more prominent, more toned. Combined with a low-carb diet. A month later, I decided to repeat it, but I took the already recommended universal scheme - with a full pill (20 μg) and with a “pitch” of 20 μg. On the 3rd day, I was shaking inside and out, so that I had to cancel the course and return to the original gentle option in a week.
Yuliya: With clenbuterol, I began to gradually lose weight after giving birth. Severely afraid of side effects - heart problems that could get worse; start drinking the drug with 1/2 tablet. The week passed quietly, I think the rest will stretch the same way. The result is gradually manifested - combined with yoga and the rejection of sweets.
Summarizing the above, it should be said that clenbuterol can be considered a sufficiently high-quality and relatively safe preparation for splitting fat cells, which can be used not only by athletes, but also by ordinary people who want to correct the figure. However, it requires careful monitoring of the condition during the course and strict adherence to instructions. A weight loss program to avoid excesses must be drawn up with a specialist.
