Clenbuterol is currently not legal for over the counter sales in the U.S. and is not approved for human use by the FDA. It has been incorrectly lumped in with steroids for three reasons. One is that it has seen wide use as an aid in bodybuilding. The second is that Clenbuterol can have dangerous side-effects if used carelessly. The third reason Clenbuterol is frequently miscategorized as a steroid is because of its adrenergic properties which can cause feelings of over stimulation and aggression.
According to used reviews, Clenbuterol has powerful stimulating effects on metabolic and cardiovascular functions. It is a very potent beta2 adrenergic agonist. Substances of this type are known for their ability to relax the involuntary smooth muscles found in all autonomic bodily systems, such as the blood vessels and intestines. It works by dilating bronchial tubes and by boosting the heat produced in cellular mitochondria. It causes the cells to burn energy more rapidly, producing more heat, consuming calories that would otherwise be stored as fat, and causing a generalized stimulating effect.
Conservative Clenbuterol reviews advise users to begin use at very low levels and to increase the dosage slowly. The average use cycle begins at 60mcg per day for males and 40mcg per day for females. This is meant to be increased by 20mcg per day until males reach 140mcg per day and females reach 120mcg per day. On the two week cycle, the dose is increased by 20mcg each day in the first week and decreased by 20mcg each day of the second week.

Other cycles often used by body builders are a two-day cycle and a three-week cycle. Trusted professionals recommend using the most conservative schedule possible and to restrict use to no more than 16 weeks out of the year. Check out the best Clen cutting cycles here.
Clenbuterol should be taken as early in the morning as possible in order to avoid sleep disturbance. Because Clenbuterol has powerful stimulating effects, and because it has a very long half-life, about 20-30 hours, it can cause insomnia if taken within 10 to 12 hours of bedtime. The body heals, grows muscle and eliminates fat primarily during sleep. If the Clen Cycle interrupts your sleep you are likely to negate your desired results and will risk damaging your health. You should be waking up very early during your Cycle and taking your daily dose as early as possible.
If you find yourself unable to sleep during this cutting cycle (as many Clenbuterol reviews say is the case) you can try using over the counter sleeping pills. If this does not restore you to a proper 8-hours of sleep each night you should stop the cycle.
Like any substance that changes the way the body or brain functions, The ability of Clenbuterol to boost metabolic function will be paired with an equal and opposite reaction. The body will respond to Clen. by curtailing the energy output of mitochondria. This natural response is the body’s way of maintaining homeostasis. Using this drug too much can have a long-term inhibitory effect on the functioning of your metabolism. This means that after using Clen, you may have a harder time staying lean than you did before using it.
Those who are involved in high-level sports should check to see if Clenbuterol is listed as a banned substance, as in all likelihood, it is – and can lead to punitive measures being taken against you should your use of it come to light. Because most Clenbuterol reviews are aimed at selling the product or come from the pro-risk perspective of extreme athletics, those who are looking for research on it are likely to find a lot of biased sources.
Closely related to Ephedrine, most of the research on Clenbuterol has been done in animal studies. Its mechanisms and the ramifications of social pressures related to use by humans are not well understood. Because of tight regulations placed on its use and distribution, most of the information available about it will come through channels filtered by the anecdotal stories of its users, sensational cases of injury and illness caused by careless use, and governmental statistics taken from instances where people are caught using it illegally or are punished by whatever sports league they may belong to.
Many find that this ‘depressive’ phase after the Clen Cycle has ended to be unavoidable. It is for this reason that it is recommended for high-level athletes, performers, models and actors use it before important events and to expect to lose some of the benefits after ‘crunch time’ has passed. Clenbuterol reviews do provide an impressive range of positive results, but you should consider the negative effects that are possible as well.
