How Does Clenbuterol Work for Weight Loss
Having an appearance like an asthma victim probably isn't something that you ever thought about before. But, as it turns out, there is a drug that is used by asthma sufferers which is being touted as an excellent tool for weight loss. Yep, you can believe it. Clenbuterol, a drug originally designed as a combination bronchodilator and decongestant, has recently been reported to work for weight loss when taken by people who aren't necessarily suffering from asthma. It should be noted that Clenbuterol is an asthma drug only in other countries, not the U.S. (although it is used for respiratory problems in horses here). In the U.S., it is used only as a weight loss drug.
The reason that Clenbuterol works for weight loss is that it is a drug which is designed to rapidly increase bodily functions. Taking the drug speeds up aerobic capacity, blood pressure, oxygen motion in the body, fat burning and protein burning. People who are interested in the use of Clenbuterol are primarily seeking to lose a large bit of weight rather quickly. Clenbuterol is shown to be effective for rapid weight loss (although it should be noted that there are always health concerns to think about when you lose weight quickly through any means). Because of the way that Clenbuterol works, it has side effects which include increased blood pressure and body temperature as well as uncontrollable shaking of the body.
In 2006, Clenbuterol gained attention in the media as a weight loss drug used by celebrities. Much of this media attention was negative attention about the thinness in the industry and the risks of rapid weight loss from such drugs as Clenbuterol. See this CBS News article for one story in which the tragic death of an overly thin model was used to negatively portray Clenbuterol in the media.
But you're reading this article in part because you want to know whether or not Clebuterol works for weight loss. If it does, you might be willing to take some risks with it, since people will pay some hefty prices for a thin body. So, does it work? Clenbuterol is reported to work for short periods of time amongst people who are looking to lose weight rapidly. Usually, weight loss is best achieved by starting with a moderate dose and increasing it steadily each day over a period of three to four weeks. This will allow you to lose a significant amount of weight and be noticeably thinner for a short period of time.
If you are looking to lose weight for a special occasion - such as a honeymoon vacation - then Clenbuterol might work for you. Of course, you'll want to think about the possible consequences. If the worst case scenario happens and you get sick from its use, your vacation will be a lot worse than if you didn't fit in the smaller size bathing suit you wanted to wear on the trip. And if you're looking to lose weight and keep it off, Clenbuterol is not your answer. The truth is that dieting isn't easy and there's no pill, including Clenbuterol, that is going to help you lose weight without some work. But, does it work for awhile? Yes, it does.
