Clenbuterol is a sympathomimetic amine primarily used to restore breathing disorders. It is a boon for asthmatic patients as they use it as a bronchodilator. It eases the tissue inside bronchi so that the lungs can accommodate more oxygen. The most common form of it is Clenbuterol hydrochloride. Apart from easing breathing process, it is commonly used as a means to lose weight as it has major impact on fat metabolism. It is neither anabolic steroid which helps in muscle building nor androgenic steroid. It can stimulate sympathetic nervous system and hence, used by the bodybuilders and athletes before they can go for an event. It is important to understand Clenbuterol before and after results before its usage.
How It Functions?
Clenbuterol affects the beta-2 receptor which in turn helps in removal of any air blockage and improves breathing process for asthmatic patients. It is this stimulation of beta-2 receptor that affects the metabolism rate. Clenbuterol increases the temperature of the body rather than attacking fat cells. Due to beta-2 stimulation, the mitochondria of the cells release more heat and this rise in temperature enhances metabolism rate. Due to enhancement in metabolism rate, the fat stored in the body gets burned at a faster rate. Many people use it as anabolic steroid but it does not work as it cannot help in the development of lean tissue. It works in human only as bronchodilator and thermogenic only.
Clenbuterol Before and After Results:
When it comes to patients who have breathing problems, the before and after results are remarkably. It opens up the airway and eases the breathing process.
But those who take it to gain muscle mass, the before and after effects are insignificant. It does not work in muscle building as it is not an anabolic steroid.
Athletes can take in the post cycle therapy to cut down a few pounds of weight. But if someone is excessively overweight, the before and after effects of weight loss would not be encouraging as it works best for people with lean body composition. It can easily cut down a few pounds and hence, very popular among athletes.
The reason it does not work on overweight people is because it does not attack fat cells directly which should have been the case. Rather, it just increases metabolism rate and heats up body to stimulate the breakdown of triglycerides and hence, fat breakdown is inevitable in rather small quantity. Therefore, the best time to use it is when you are already in fairly lean state of body structure. It is prescribed towards the end of fat loss procedure.
Another reason why it is popular among athletes is because it enhances cardio vascular endurance. One can go the extra mile after its intake.
As it is a stimulant, it causes excessive sweating. It also makes hands shaky and makes the mood of a person quite jittery. But as one get used to using it, the side effects go down significantly. In case of athletes, it causes muscle cramps at times.
