By Leesteve19

Clenbuterol was initially used by vets in the 60's to help livestock control their breathing patterns better! (Also know as Equine). Mainly used on horses because of their size and well-known respiratory issues. Yes! another drug that was discovered helpful to athletes because of its use on livestock! Weird coincidence, Right?

Clenbuterol – Dangers, Side Effects & The TRUTH!
Mentioned earlier is its ability to improve oxygen distribution because it expands your airways. But, it also has many other benefits for a user looking to up their game and workout for longer periods. Listed below are the known effects Clenbuterol creates:

  1. Improved oxygen levels because of expanded airways
  2. Greatly speeding up a users metabolism rate for much quicker weight loss

  5. Vomiting through stomach irritation and digestive complications
  6. Much higher levels of blood pressure

How Does Clenbuterol Aid Weight Loss?

Clenbuterol has been used by many celebrities because it does make the user shed weight at a rapid rate. Although these celebrities are very foolish to use a dangerous drug for weight loss they do claim to have lost a lot of weight! Clenbuterol speeds up the metabolic rate. Your metabolic rate regulates how fast you burn calories, by speeding up this process you will lose weight. Simples. Added with the increased energy levels and the lack of foods you can shed a lot of weight at a dangerous level!

  • Speed the metabolic rate of the user
  • Encourages your heart to beat faster
  • Give you a huge kick of energy

Yes, you are losing weight. But at what cost? Your health will suffer and you are putting your organs under great stress. Although you may not see this physically at first! You will pay for this later on in life because your heart is not designed to be put under that amount of pressure over longer periods.

Why Bodybuilders Use Clenbuterol?

Clenbuterol – Dangers, Side Effects & The TRUTH!
Bodybuilders use Clenbuterol because it seems the perfect fit for a cutting cycle! A cutting cycle is undertaken after the bulking phase. When bodybuilders cut they want high energy, less calorie intake, and better performance. Because you are lifting lighter weights for longer periods compared to a bulking phase, Clenbuterol seems to offer all these benefits.

  • Speeds up the rate of weight loss for that defined physique
  • Helps users lift for longer periods
  • Burn fat at an exceptional rate

Several decades ago, many professionals did not have rules against the use of these performance-enhancing drugs. There is no doubt they may provide a temporary boost in performance and quickly build lean muscle. However, the prices you end up paying in return for these temporary results are permanent health problems and extreme mental disorders.

  • Steroid Cycling: Cycling is a method where users set a defined schedule of weeks or months when they will use steroids. It's a set schedule of starting, stopping and then restarting again over a longer period of time. All this is in vain because side effects will always catch up with them.
  • Pyramid Steroids: Pyramid involves increasing the number of steroids taken over a certain period of time up to a maximum allowance. Once the maximum level is reached, the user will begin decreasing the amount taken over a period of time.
  • Stacking Steroids: Stacking is a method where users take two or more types of steroids at the same time. This way users get benefits from a range of steroids!

IMPORTANT: Created in unregulated and unlicensed labs quality is another major risk that adds to the dangers of Clen.

Clenbuterol produces results that are far beyond what one would be able to accomplish by using natural methods of training alone. With fame and big money contracts available at various levels, some athletes turn to Clenbuterol to get that edge.

While it may seem like a good idea at the time and some athletes do indeed experience a high-level of success. it's a shame to say that these effects are very short lived. Sooner or later, all the dangerous side effects begin to surface. With many physical problems occurring such as emotional and mental complications!
