Clenbuterol is a drug used in medicine to treat asthma. In recent years, clenbuterol has found widespread use in bodybuilding and fitness due to its ability to burn fat, which is why it is often used by athletes for weight loss and drying. Clenbuterol cycles often include thyroxin and ketotifen to speed up the process of losing weight. Clenbuterol is not related to anabolic steroids and belongs to the group of adrenergic mimetics, which exert their physiological effect by stimulating beta-2-adrenergic receptors, as a result of which the sympathetic nervous system is activated and lipolysis is triggered.
May be administered by women without the risk of developing androgenic side effects inherent in anabolic steroids.
Clenbuterol inhibits lipoprotein lipase activity, with the result that fat deposition in adipose tissue becomes impossible. Acting on the beta-2-adrenoreceptors of the central nervous system, this drug enhances the secretion of thyroid hormones - the body's natural fat burners.
A unique feature of clenbuterol is that it is not only a powerful fat burner, but also has a pronounced anti-catabolic effect, protecting muscles from destruction, which is very important during weight loss and drying in bodybuilding.
Due to the above mechanisms, the drug has a moderate anabolic effect, which has been proven in human experiments and practical use in bodybuilding.
Given the fact that the drug almost does not interact with beta-1-adrenergic receptors, there is an expansion of the bronchi and easier breathing, as well as a much lower incidence of cardiovascular side effects compared to non-selective agonists, such as ephedrine.
