Once again it’s that time of year that I start getting bombarded with the same questions;
“What can I take that is safe to burn fat in addition to my diet and exercise regimen because obviously I have no patience and want to look good yesterday.”
“What’s your opinion on Clenbuterol for burning fat?”
These are the people I deal with every day from late February to mid-August, believe it or not. It seems like no one is ever happy with their physical appearance anymore and will do anything for that immediate gratification. . .
There are also a handful of people that are doing everything right and just can’t lose another pound. Be that as it may, as a medical professional I’m going to discuss clenbuterol since it’s been on everyone’s mind.
First of all, clenbuterol is not legal to possess or consume without a prescription.
But can it be obtained easier than a candy bar at the click of a mouse? Yes.
Is it safe? Well, it’s safer than acetaminophen and half of the fat burning supplements at your local vitamin store suppliers.
Does it work? Definitely, but for a very short time.
Clenbuterol is essentially what we call a Beta-2 adrenergic agonist. “Clen” as it is commonly called, belongs to the class of drugs known as sympathomimetics and works by latching onto and activating the Beta-2 receptor, which is found in various tissues, such as muscle and fat. Depending on which receptors are activated, it can produce a wide range of effects throughout the body.
Clenbuterol as a means for Fat-loss
As a fat-loss agent, you can’t get much better than Clenbuterol. Historically popular in bodybuilding and fitness communities, “clen” has earned a name as one of the most successful fat loss drugs available and with good reason. Functioning as both a thermogenic and lipolytic agent, clen stimulates fat loss through not one, but two potent, independent mechanisms. This allows the user to experience fat loss at a greatly accelerated rate.
