Clenbuterol is a selective beta-2 adrenostimulant. At its core, it is a thermogenic, adrenomimetic and anorexic. Along with ephedrine, it is a powerful and working component for fat burning. The action of clenbuterol is mainly associated with the stimulation of the body’s beta adrenergic receptors. This leads to an increased production of stress hormones by the body – adrenaline and noradrenaline, and an increase in basic metabolism. By the way, I wrote in detail about how and why this happens in an article about lipolysis.

Benefits of clenbuterol
Clenbuterol is able to speed up the basic metabolism by 30%. This effect is its most important and valuable benefit. Also, the advantages, in terms of fat burning, when taking clenbuterol include:
1) Decreased appetite.
2) A slight increase in body temperature.
3) Increased endurance.
Of course, such a powerful drug cannot have only benefits. Clenbuterol also has side effects, and often they cause discomfort when taking it.
Side effects of clenbuterol
The most common side effects when taking clenbuterol are: heart palpitations, anxiety, tremors of the limbs, sweating. By the way, the tremor, especially the hands, is a sign that the drug is definitely working for you and your body responds very well to the drug. After a few days (appr. 3-7 days), the body adapts and the tremor disappears.
Is clenbuterol banned? Where can I buy clenbuterol?
Clenbuterol is banned in most countries. You cannot buy it legally in pharmacy, for instance. Particularly, it is banned in: the USA, Canada, Australia, Europe (Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland, etc.), Russia, China, India and other countries. The only way that you have is to buy clenbuterol at steroid dealer shops in the Internet.
In some countries, at the same time, you can buy clenbuterol and other anabolic steroids legally, even in pharmacy. For example, in Mexico.
Anabolic and anti-catabolic effects of clenbuterol
In the Internet, you can find a lot of the information that clenbuterol has anabolic as well as anti-catabolic effects. Actually it is not. Studies that confirm these effects have been conducted in animals. And research data showed that clenbuterol does have anabolic and anti-catabolic effects, though only in animals, and at dosages of about 1000 mcg. Meanwhile the maximum daily dosage for a person is 320 mcg. Therefore, people who use clenbuterol to get anabolic and anti-catabolic effects from it are fools. Not only will they not gain anything on it, but they will also burn much more muscles. It is also not correct to use clenbuterol for PCT (post cycle therapy) for these purposes. It is strictly forbidden to do this, because you will lose everything that you have gained on steroid cycle if you add clenbuterol to your post cycle therapy.
The best clenbuterol cycle for weight loss
The most popular and working for weight loss (fat burning) is the cycle of clenbuterol + yohimbine + ketotifen. I described the effect of clenbuterol on the body above, so we will dwell on the effects of yohimbine and ketotifen in more detail.
Yohimbine is an alpha adrenergic receptor blocker. Yohimbine is a drug that blocks the body’s alpha adrenergic receptors, the very ones that block (suppress) the process of fat burning in the body. Yohimbine increases basic metabolic rate.
Yohimbine can be bought freely available in the form of tablets. By the way, it is best to buy the hydrochloride form, that is, yohimbine hydrochloride (HCL). As a rule, you can buy yohimbine in a sports nutrition stores or pharmacies.
The side effects of yohimbine most often include the fact that it increases libido, in my opinion this is not such a side effect 😀
Ketotifen is an antihistamine, its main advantage is that it does not allow receptors to adapt to the action of clenbuterol and yohimbine. In addition, ketotifen reduces the side effects of clenbuterol, such as tremors, sweating, and anxiety. Ketotifen causes drowsiness, so it should be taken at bedtime. Ketotifen allows you to use the clenbuterol + yohimbine combination indefinitely, but due to the load of clenbuterol on the cardiovascular system (CVS), your heart will not allow you to do this. Therefore, it is better to limit the cycle of clenbuterol + yohimbine + ketotifen to 6 weeks, and ketotifen should be taken starting from the 3rd week of the cycle.
Clenbuterol cycle for weight loss. Dosages for men and women
So, the cycle itself, which lasts no more than for 6 weeks, consists of:
Daily dosage for men: 120-160 mcg, for women: 40-80 mcg. The maximum allowable daily dosage is 320 micrograms, I do not recommend you to exceed the dosage of 240 micrograms if you are a man and 120 micrograms if you are a woman. The entire daily dosage is taken in the morning. Clenbuterol starts with a minimum dosage of 40 micrograms for men, or 20 micrograms for women, and then rises to the recommended one within a week. Such a drug intake is called a “slide” and for a man it will look like this:
Day 1 – 40 mcg
Day 2 – 40 mcg
Day 3 – 80 mcg
Day 4 – 80 mcg
Day 5 – 80 mcg
Day 6 – 80 mcg
Day 7 and until the end of the cycle – 120 mcg
The entire dosage of clenbuterol should be taken at one time – in the morning. It is worth noting that at the end of the cycle, the entire dosage of clenbuterol must simply be stopped. No reducing dosages, called “reverse slide” (120 – 80 – 80 – 80 – 80 – 40 – 40) need to be done.
Daily dosage for men: 20-30 mg, for women 10-15 mg. The maximum allowable daily dosage is 50 mg. The dosage of yohimbine is calculated relative to the dosage of clenbuterol. The higher the dosage of clenbuterol you have on the cycle, the more yohimbine should be, but you should not exceed the dosage of 50 mg. For example, if the working dosage of clenbuterol is 120 mcg, then the dosage of yohimbine should be 30 mg. If you use a large dosage of clenbuterol, for example 240 mcg, then the dosage of yohimbine should be large – 50 mg.
The dosage of yohimbine should be divided into 10 mg portions (for women, 5 mg portions) and taken every 2 hours, in the morning. The first dose is with clenbuterol. It is worth noting that taking yohimbine should be started immediately with a working dosage. “Slide”, like clenbuterol, you do not need to do. At the end of the cycle, the entire dosage must simply be stopped.
Daily dosage 1-2 mg, depending on the dosage of clenbuterol. The more dosage of clenbuterol you have on the course, the more ketotifen should be. For example, if the working dosage of clenbuterol is 120 mcg, then the working dosage of ketotifen should be 1 mg. If you use a large dosage of clenbuterol, for example 240 mcg, then the dosage of ketotifen should be large – 2 mg.
The entire dosage of ketotifen should be taken at one time – at bedtime. Ketotifen is taken starting from the 3rd week of the cycle, and at the end of it, the entire dosage must simply be stopped.
