Clenbuterol is a sympathotmimetic amine peptide. It is occasionally referred to a Spiropent, Clen, and Ventipulmin. It is not to be confused with the similar sounding peptide albuterol.
Mechanics of Clenbuterol
Clenbuterol is a β2 agonist whose structural and pharmacological build is similar to that of epinephrine and salbutamol. According to scientific study conducted on animal test subjects, the peptide causes an elevation in aerobic capability, meaning it increases an organism’s efficiency in taking in and processing oxygen to meet energy demands during periods of activity. It also works to increase the stimulation of the central nervous system and oxygen transportation.
Additionally, scientific research based on animal test subjects has determined that Clenbuterol has the capability to promote the rate at which body fat is metabolized while at the same time increasing the body’s basal metabolic rate. The peptide has this capability because it promotes thermogenesis; a process in which an animal test subject’s body increases the metabolic rate, which allows for a greater release of energy, which in turn leads to the burning of fat.
Clenbuterol has also been determined through scientific research on animal test subjects to boost catabolic secretion from the brain’s adrenal region. These secretions enable for an elevated release of molecular energy, which in turn provide the chemical energy which is essential for cellular growth and maintenance.
Theoretical Benefits of Clenbuterol
Scientific research conducted on animal test subjects in relation to Clenbuterol has determined that there are several theoretical benefits associated with the peptide.
The primary theoretical benefit in relation to the use of Clenbuterol is related to breathing disorders, such as bronchial asthma. Because the peptide has a specific affinity for the β2 adrenergic receptors that are found in the bronchial musculature of animal test subjects, it is theorized that it could enable for a freer flow and easier breakdown of oxygen, which could in turn provide for an easier capture of energy related to these molecules. This in turn would enable an animal test subject to have an increased breathing capacity. As such, the peptide could be used to regulate breathing functionality in cases where typical oxygen flow is inhibited.
Another theoretical benefit of the peptide according to scientific study conducted with animal test subjects it the increased efficiency in the burning of body fat. Because Clenbuterol’s functionality is such that it can expedite an organism’s metabolic processes, the peptide can lead to a more efficient means of promoting lipolysis through a quicker breakdown of adipose tissue.
Additionally, this quickening of the metabolic process leads to a more efficient release of energy, which could in turn lead to a more efficient building of muscular and skeletal tissue in animal test subjects.
Potential Negative Side Effects of Clenbuterol
While scientific research conducted on animal test subjects have determined several theoretical benefits in relation to Clenbuterol, there have also been several potential negative side effects that have been associated with the peptide.
The most serious potential negative side effects in relation to Clenbuterol are associated with the cardiovascular system of an animal test subjects. Scientific research on these subjects have concluded that there are several potentially serious side effects that could linked to the peptide, such as irregular heart rhythms or cardiac hypertrophy (that is, the enlargement of the heart ventricles). These conditions can lead to a host of serious heart problems, up to and including death. It has been suggested through the scientific study of animal test subjects that the these conditions are due to an elevated amount of collagen that forms in the heart as a result of the peptide, which in turn interferes with the electric signals sent through the heart muscle cells in order to keep the organ pumping on a normal, regulated basis.
Other potential negative side effects associated with Clenbuterol include:
- Increased blood pressure
- Increased perspiration
- Increased muscle tremors
For Scientific Use Only
While there have been several scientific studies conducted on animal test subjects in order to determine Clenbuterol’s range of operational mechanics, theoretical benefits, and negative side effects, it should be noted that any findings that are linked with the peptide are still considered to be the product of current laboratory research. Because Clenbuterol is currently in the research phase, any study or usage relating to the mechanics, operations, benefits, and side effects of the peptide should exclusively be contained to the restrictions of a strictly controlled environment such as a laboratory or a medical research facility.
