Astralean, chemically known as clenbuterol hydrochloride, is a sparking member of the sympathomimetic family. It mainly mimics the biological roles of adrenaline and noradrenaline. It’s a beta-2 agonist that is mainly used to invigorate the beta-receptors in fat and muscle tissue. The drug imparts a large part of its action on both of 2 and 3 beta-receptors.
Why to use:
Clenbuterol is therapeutically used in treating asthma. It is often used by body builders during their cutting cycles. It has an off-label use as a weight-loss drug. It manifests itself like other sympathomimetic amines as ephedrine. Clenbuterol also acts potentially as a performance enhancing drug.
For beginners, an initial daily dose of 40 mg for men and 20 mg for women. The best method for gradual increase in the intake of the drug is to increase the dose by 20 mg ever 14-17 days, as needed. Many users can continue up to 4 weeks without raising the dose. The cycle should not be continued beyond 6 weeks. Most users start to increase the doses after 2 weeks but with fair increase in the dosage. It helps the body to continue guessing and thus prevents the total adaptation of the body to the drug; it makes the cycle effective all through. For most effective yield, the commonly used method is 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off with a steady and incremental dosing plan. The basic plan involves minimum dosing initially and will reach the maximum intake after two weeks of the initial dose, followed by an interval of 2 weeks which is again followed by the normal doses.
The drug can cause the following side-effects:
- Subaortic stenosis
- High blood pressure
- Muscle tremors
- Gastric irritation
