Clenbuterol is a Î˛2 adrenergic agonist with some similarities to ephedrine, but its effects are more potent and longer-lasting as a stimulant and thermogenic drug. It causes an increase in aerobic capacity, central nervous system stimulation, and an increase in blood pressure and oxygen transportation. It increases the rate at which fat and protein is used up in the body at the same time as slowing down the storage of glycogen. It is commonly used for smooth muscle relaxant properties. This means that it is a bronchodilator and tocolytic. It is usually used in dosages anywhere from 20-60 micrograms a day when prescribed. A dose of about 150 ÎĽg should never be exceeded in a day. It is also prescribed for treatment of horses; however, equestrian usage is usually the liquid form of clenbuterol. Clenbuterol is also a sympathomimetic in the peripheral nervous system.
Clenbuterol is approved for use in some countries as a bronchodilator for asthma patients. Recently though, the drug has been publicized for its off-label use as a weight loss drug. It is commonly used as a slimming aid despite lack of sufficient clinical evidence supporting such use,. With many major diet review websites talking about clenbuterol, and given its accessibility via the internet, the drug is widely used as a \\\"dietary supplement\\\". In fact, nowadays it is recommended by many physical trainers as the primary solution for those bodybuilders who desire to achieve sufficiently low body fat in order to look \\\"cut\\\". In many cases, it is introduced into the training regime not as an illegal drug, but simply as a weight loss aid. This reduces some of the negative connotations attached to illicit drug use and thereby decreases any hesitation to take the drug on the part of the trainee.[
