Clenbuterol is not a steroid, but it is a steroid-like substance. It is in a class of drugs called beta-2 agonists. Clenbuterol is similar to stimulant drugs. It was initially used as a bronchodilator to treat symptoms of asthma in horses.
Weight loss is a side effect of Clenbuterol. It also has anabolic properties, which means that it can stimulate the growth of muscles. That is why athletes often use Clenbuterol alone or with other substances. It is very popular among female athletes because it does not cause the unpleasant androgenic side effects associated with using anabolic steroids. Anabolic steroids can cause excessive hair growth, acne and deepening of the voice in females.
There are not any human studies available to confirm whether Clenbuterol is effective. Clenbuterol has only been studied in animals. Animal studies have confirmed that Clenbuterol can stimulate muscle growth and promote fat loss.
The reason that Clenbuterol has not been studied in humans is because of the risk of side effects. Anyone who is thinking about using Clenbuterol to lose weight should carefully consider the side effects.
In Australia, the United States and most of Europe, it is only legal for horses to use Clenbuterol. In the United Kingdom and Canada, it is not illegal for someone to possess and use Clenbuterol.
There are also black market versions of Clenbuterol available in addition to the legal preparations. If you purchase a counterfeit version, then you probably will get a product with little or no active ingredients. You could also get a contaminated version of the product. In some cases, Clenbuterol is illegally into the United States from other countries, such as Canada or Mexico.
