Clenbulol is a popular drug that is best known by the pharmaceutical name of Clenbuterol hydrochloride.
It originates from an established, yet hard to find laboratory in Thailand.
This name might seem a bit familiar in that Clenbuterol is also a prescription medication for those suffering from a number of respiratory conditions, namely asthma.
A number of steroids that have grown in popularity are derived from other sources – such as veterinary medication or prescriptions designed to boost performance and aid in the recovery process.
Clenbulol is a suitable performance-enhancing drug to use during the cutting – or fat loss – stage in bodybuilding.
Some fitness enthusiasts will stack it with other steroids to build muscle mass, while the Clenbuterol melts the fat.
To achieve muscle mass growth, anabolic androgenic steroids are ideal as they encourage fat loss, while boosting muscle growth.
Similar to most steroids and supplements, a lack of studies means that very little scientific evidence is available to prove the effectiveness of oral supplements, such as Clenbulol.
How Does Clenbulol Work?
This particular structure works in the body by promoting the release of catecholamine hormones from the adrenal glands.
These hormones include:
Once these hormones are released, the nervous system is stimulated, boosting the body’s natural responses. This means:
- Enhancing the nervous system
- Improving oxygen flow throughout the body
- Boosting thermogenesis for fat burning
- Stimulating certain muscle groups in the body
Clenbulol is designed to burn fat through a number of natural responses – such as increasing heart rate, rising body temperature and improving oxygen flow throughout.
Most Clenbuterol users include it into a cutting cycle, as the benefits are designed to enhance muscle tone and promote definition.
It also affects the body’s beta-2 receptors, which help to promote muscle growth through enhanced metabolism. In addition to steroid use, a healthy diet and ample exercise plan is required to achieve desired results.
SB Laboratories provides the Clenbulol steroid in containers of 200 pills at 20 mcg/tab.
Originating in Thailand, it is rather hard to find both in the country itself and abroad, as it is not marketed.
Bodybuilders typically secure the product through underground channels or by obtaining it through forum boards and other bodybuilders.
Clenbulol is an oral product – SB Laboratories does not create injectables.
For best results, it is best used in cycles of four to eight weeks.
This means the drug is consumed for four to eight weeks, with an equal amount of time off to give the body a chance to return to its natural state.
Stacking with Clenbulol
Bodybuilders will often stack Clenbuterol hydrochloride with other steroids to boost results even further.
Typical stacking combinations include:
This drug is typically effective even in small doses. For best and safest results, it is always a good idea to start with the lowest dose possible and increase gradually until you find a level that works best for the individual.
Starting at a high dose at first increases the risk of side effects.
Standard Clenbuterol dosage recommendations are 40 mcg for men and 20 mcg for women. For those interested with increasing dosage, experienced users suggest raising the dosage by 20 mcg every two to three weeks during the cycle.
Though a cycle can go up to eight weeks, most experienced steroid users recommend sticking to six weeks at a maximum, as the results do not seem to extend past that time.
It is important not to exceed Clenbulol use – here are the recommended limitations for this drug:
- Men – No more than 140 mcg of Clenbuterol hydrochloride
- Women – No more than 120 mcg
Keep Clenbulol use limited to only 16 weeks each year – and always cycle off as recommended to reduce the risk of long-term side effects.
There no proof that taking the steroid longer increases results – in fact, it could prove to be quite useless to subject the body to extended amounts of time on the steroid.
Side Effects of Clenbulol
Due to the nature of steroid like drugs, it is difficult to find studies that prove safety and effectivity of Clenbulol in humans.
One limited study highlighted the toxicity level of Clenbuterol hydrochloride – the study, which was done on rats, showed that it caused a dangerous increase in respiration and heart rate. 
If you have a heart condition, it is advised not to consume steroids of any kind.
Before taking supplements, always undergo a physical exam to determine overall health – knowing any underlying conditions could help you prevent damaging side effects.
Typical Clenbulol side effects include:
- Muscle cramps
Many of the side effects are caused by the thermogenic nature of the drug.
Minor side effects should subside after a few days – once the body gets used to it. If side effects worsen or continue over a period of time, stop taking Clenbulol.
