Salbutamol is sold by the brand names Ventolin and albuterol. Even though it has made its way to the bodybuilding world, this steroid was primarily a medication. It was used for opening the airways in the lung. It is also an adrenergic receptor agonist.
Bodybuilders use Salbutamol not for opening the airways in their lungs, but because of its fat-burning properties.

When the airways open, this muscles of the lungs to relax. Your breathing becomes smoother. Muscles in your digestive tract and other parts of the body also relax
Bodybuilders take 2 to 8 mg of Salbutamol 4 times a day. Since the half-life of this steroid is 4 hours, you will have to take a higher dosage. It will eventually start maintaining fat metabolism. It will also promote weight loss during the training cycle.
Since people started abusing this medication, it was banned in many countries. Also, the excessive dosage can lead to side effects like high blood pressure, thyroid issue, diabetes, high cholesterol, and chances of heart attack as well.
