Know its safety, legality, and the positive as well as negative effects that it can contribute to our body.


What is Clenbuterol?

Since Clenbuterol is a bronchodilator, what it does is to relax smooth muscle tissues of the bronchus that is found inside the lungs. This is effective to treat lung disorders such as asthma, COPD, and much more. Clen also has an effect on autonomic functions like metabolism, breathing and heart rate and also affects the production of energy because of its beta-adrenergic receptor binding capability.

Clenbuterol Stacks: Effective or Not?

Clen is often combined with other drugs in bodybuilding. The most popular are winstrol, Dbol and Clen stack. However, Clen is not a steroid. Clenbuterol is for fat burning with stimulant properties. Clen stacks are common practice in bodybuilding especially for PCT or post-cycle therapies. This is usually stacked with other substances at the end of a cycle to lose those extra pounds.

Dosage requirement for men is up to 140 mcg a day and 40 mcg to 120 mcg daily for women. It is often used in 2-days on 2-days off cycle that can last up to three weeks.  After the cycle, take another three weeks off to rest the body and prepare to start another cycle. Combining Clen with testosterone is the most common stack preferred by bodybuilders to lessen the estrogenic side effects of synthetic anabolic steroids and testosterone supplements.

Clen is also stacked with bronchodilators to increase oxygen intake. The increase in oxygen level helps with energy production as well as some metabolic processes. Through this process, the recuperation period of the muscles during and after a workout is also reduced.
