Shed fat with Clenbuterol

Clenbuterol is a popular supplement for losing body fat among bodybuilders, models, celebrities and fitness professionals. Clenbuterol is not known to increase muscle mass but some increase in lean muscles mass has been reported by its users. There are many users who have showed before and after pictures of using Clenbuterol to indicate the amazing fat loss potential of the drug.

How does it help in losing fat?

Clenbuterol acts by activating the beta2 receptors which increases the temperature of the cells by enhancing the energy produced by the cellular mitochondria. As a result, the metabolic rate is increased which causes lipolysis of the stored body fat. Lipolysis is a process in which the trigycerides are converted into free fatty acid and glycerol. This is the process of fat burning which helps in reducing weight. Clenbuterol helps in losing fat mainly from the fatty tissues. Bodybuilders use Clenbuterol during cutting cycles to get a hard toned look. They have showed before and after pictures of using Clenbuterol on various platforms to prove its efficiency as a fat burning drug. On an average, a loss of four to five percent of body fat can be expected in an individual per month even though it depends upon diet, strength of the cycle and exercise. Clenbuterol is also referred to as “size zero” pill due to its ability to burn fat.

 Clenbuterol is also known to decrease appetite. It is known to promote weight loss while protecting the lean muscle mass. Clenbuterol has the potential to drastically decrease visceral and abdominal fat.

 Medical use

Clenbuterol is used in the treatment of Recurrent Airway Obstruction and Inflammatory Airway Disease. It is also used in the treatment of Bronchopneumonia. In fact, it was originally used for treating various breathing problems such as asthma. Clenbuterol is also used by athletes suffering from exercise-induced pulmonary haemorrhage.


The most common cycle of using Clenbuterol is a 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off cycle. This means that an individual uses Clenbuterol for 2 weeks and then ceases the course for 2 weeks.

During the first 2 weeks, the recommended dosage is 20 mcg for beginners while it is 40 mcg for individuals with more experience. During the second phase after 2 weeks, the dosage is increased by 20 mcg which is continued until the dosage reaches 100 mcg per day. When the second phase of 2 weeks at 100 mcg per day is complete, the supplement should be avoided for several months.

Clenbuterol is not solely for use by men, it can also be used by women. Women can start with 10 mcg instead of 20 mcg during the 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off cycle. The maximum dosage can be 80 mcg instead of 100 mcg.
