Clenbuterol Hydrochloride is a powerful bronchodilator that is used to treat breathing disorders like asthma. Upon activation of beta-2 receptors in the cell lining of the bronchial tubes, it initiates bronchial dilation (the opening and expanding of the airways) in the lungs, nose, and throat.
Clenbuterol is not an anabolic steroid, it does not express or exhibit any of the known side effects that are associated with anabolic steroid use. Instead, clenbuterol expresses side effects that are common to all drugs and compounds in the stimulant class. Perhaps the most unique of clenbuterol side effects is the commonly reported side effect of muscle cramping. The cause of this is through Clenbuterol’s depletion of taurine in the body. Taurine, alongside magnesium, potassium, and sodium, play very crucial roles in the regulation of bioelectrical nerve impulses and signals that govern the contraction and relaxation of all muscle tissue types.
In bodybuilding clenbuterol is most commonly utilized in cutting, pre-contest, and fat loss cycles. Clenbuterol can bind to receptors on fat cells and initiate lipolysis.
