Positive effects of Clenbuterol
There are two types of adrenoreceptors in adipose tissue and muscle tissue – alpha and beta. Stimulation of the first group of receptors causes the active accumulation of adipose tissue, and, on the contrary, the second group regulates the work of the body in such a way that fat begins to be used as a source of energy, the speed of its separation increases dramatically.
Clenbuterol is a beta2 agonist. Stimulates beta-adrenergic receptors. Its use activates the mechanism of biochemical reactions improving lipolysis – the breakdown of fat components.
Taking the drug, in addition to burning fat, accelerates metabolism, increasing its rate by about 20-30%. This allows you to get another undeniable advantage in the drying period. Lipoprotein lipase is more active when you use Clenbuterol, which prevents fat from forming in the body.
The use of this drug stimulates the function of the thyroid gland to increase the production of fat burning hormones. These Clenbuterol properties are good for removing excess body fat.
Produced in the form of tablets, this medication becomes an excellent aid for any athlete in the dry period, allowing them to accelerate metabolism and the secretion of hormones synthesized by the thyroid gland. These and other effects allow you to lose body fat on a low-calorie diet.
Clenbuterol is used medicinally to widen the airways and reduce shortness of breath. It works as a beta-2 agonist, similar to ephedrine. After receiving:
- Fatty acid release.
- Reduces adipose tissue, increasing adrenaline production.
- The human temperature is rising.
- The metabolism speeds up.
- Appetite is reduced.
- It inhibits the production of the catabolic hormone cortisol. This means that it helps to prevent muscle breakdown.
It also has a weak anabolic property. But it is less pronounced than its fat burning and anti-catabolic properties.
Overall, Clenbuterol helps burn fat while protecting your muscles from breakdown. The perfect combination for drying!
Side effects of Clenbuterol
Like any drug, the use of Clenbuterol can have some negative effects. They are not so important if the athlete strictly follows the daily norm.
The side effects of taking the bodybuilder drug are as follows:
- nausea, which occurs in 3% of athletes;
- indigestion observed in 5%;
- high blood pressure and heart rate occurring in 6% of cases;
- causal anxiety and insomnia, observed in 7% of athletes;
- increased sweating, manifested in 10% of cases, and colicky convulsions, seen in 20% of cases.
Many negative consequences, based on the frequency of occurrence, almost always occur. You shouldn’t worry too much about these risks as they only appear in the first few days after starting Clenbuterol and then disappear. The presence of side effects is a consequence of the body’s reaction to the increase in the rate of metabolic processes.
To get the maximum benefit from this medication, in order to reduce any risk to zero, two conditions must be met. First, do not exceed the recommended daily dose (up to 120 micrograms), starting with the lowest dose. Second, use several medications at the same time during the drying period.
Side effects usually develop early in the course and gradually disappear. Ketotifen, Bisoprolol, Metoprolol completely help to eliminate the unpleasant effects of the fat burner. Men taking Clenbuterol should be aware of its toxicity to testicular tissue (in significant doses). Substance abuse can be dangerous to the heart muscle. However, when taken as per the recommended regimen, the health risks are minimal.
The likelihood of side effects is higher when you use thyroxine, caffeine, and other drug-based stimulants. Clenbuterol should not be used by pregnant or lactating women, cardiac patients, patients with thyrotoxicosis, glaucoma, bronchial asthma and young children. For a complete list of contraindications, see the drug annotation.
Contraindications of Clenbuterol
- obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy;
- angle-closure glaucoma;
- myocardial infarction (acute period);
- pregnancy (1st and 3rd trimester);
- the period of breastfeeding;
- children up to 6 years;
- hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
Be careful in the following cases: immediately after myocardial infarction, in case of liver and kidney failure, cardiac arrhythmias, myocarditis, mitral valve defects, hypokalaemia, unstable or uncontrolled diabetes.
Clenbuterol syrup is not used in the first three months of pregnancy, as well as in the last trimester, because of its dominant effect on childbirth. Clenbuterol Syrup is not used while breastfeeding. The use of the inhaled form of Clenbuterol is recommended in the second trimester of pregnancy and during breastfeeding.
Clenbuterol can negatively affect the heart
The most common question about Clenbuterol side effects is, “Is it bad for the heart?” Sadly yes.
First, because Clen is a powerful stimulant, it can raise your blood pressure and keep it at that level for a long time.
This, in turn, can increase the risk of left ventricular hypertrophy, a condition characterized by thickening of the left ventricular wall.5 Hypertrophy is a factor in the development of heart disease and is also associated with an increased risk of arrhythmias and sudden death .
Second, there is evidence that Clenbuterol can kill heart cells, which naturally increases the risk of heart disease. It is noteworthy that in these cases the subjects received very high doses of Clenbuterol (several times higher than those used for “drying”). But lower doses could theoretically harm your heart, even if the science isn’t ready to answer that question just yet.
Clenbuterol depletes potassium
Evidence suggests that Clenbuterol may cause the body to excrete large amounts of potassium and taurine from the body.
Potassium plays an important role in muscle contraction and heart function, and taurine helps prevent muscle spasms.
This explains why Clenbuterol can cause heart problems and muscle spasms.
