Anabolic drug often used by bodybuilders, the Clenbuterol can be found in gel or powder.
The Clenbuterol is a drug used as a bronchodilator-so is a coadjuvant in the treatment of diseases of the upper respiratory tract. However, there are more than 30 years athletes and technicians found that Clenbuterol helps fat burning and, since then, has been very used by athletes before competitions.
How does Clenbuterol
Stimulating the adrenergic receptor (present in many cells of the body), which are basically enabled by adrenaline and noradrenaline, the Clenbuterol acts as agonist, i.e. causes a nice reaction – fight or flight responses, in a similar effect, but potentiated, whatever we feel when we are faced by an imminent danger: pupils dilate, cardio-respiratory frequency increases and the blood flow is diverted from non-essential organs to skeletal muscles.

The Clenbuterol in gel is most easily handled; the two brands, the active ingredient is offered at a concentration of 20 mcg/ml. Technicians who value the results suggest the ingestion of 40 mcg/ml in the first day, increasing to 20 mcg/ml to the fifth day, the product can be used orally or intravenously. The dosage of 120 mcg/ml must be maintained until the 15th day, followed by a rest of 15 days until the return of Clenbuterol.
Some experts indicate the system “2on-2off” – two days of use followed by two days of rest. Most, however, agree that the use for 15 consecutive days (especially during periods of heavy training and competitions), since the half-life of Clenbuterol is 35 hours and a range of two days reduces the effects that the athlete seeking.
These doses vary from person to person, according to health, age, sex (in General, the maximum daily intake for women is, in General, of 80 mcg/ml). The evaluation should be made preferably by a professional.
