Clenodex is the trade name for the drug Clenbuterol hydrochloride from Sciroxx.
Clenbuterol is a potent β2-agonist. This means that it interacts directly with β2 receptors. The β2 receptors are located in various tissues such as muscle, fat, heart, and many others. Its original pharmacological purpose was as a smooth muscle relaxant for bronchitis. Medical conditions such as asthma or allergies cause these muscles to contract, and clenbuterol has been shown to treat such conditions. Athletes are interested in the performance-enhancing properties of Clenodex, and indeed, Clenodex enhances the skeletal muscles and cardiovascular system, thereby increasing performance and metabolic rate. β2-receptors are also abundant in fatty tissues and trigger the metabolic activity of cellular tissues and the release of fatty acids into the bloodstream, these properties have given Clendex its famous reputation as a "fat burner".
Celenbuterol has been compared to ephedrine many times. Ephedrine has a much less specific effect on β2 receptors than does clenbuterol. It does not interact directly with these receptors, but it does cause the release of norephedrine, which acts on β2-receptors. The fact that clenbuterol is a specific β2-agonist, combined with the fact that it has a much longer half-life (up to 48 hours), makes it the best performance enhancer. However, ephedrine has a CNS (central nervous system) effect that clenbuterol does not, so it has a stimulant effect, which, among other things, is necessary as an appetite suppressant.
The use of clenbuterol leads to a drastic reduction of beta-receptor levels, so it is only particularly effective for a short time. The use of clenbuterol as a performance-enhancing drug usually lasts for 2 weeks, but bodybuilders may find it effective at a moderate dosage for 4-8 weeks while dieting.
The effective dosage for men is 40-120 mcg per day and 20-80 mcg for women.
Time of action: Up to 4 days
Class of drugs: Beta-2-symphatonimetic, thermogenic, possibly anti-catabolic (oral)
