    clen argument

    had a argument with my friends. I've been told that clen is not a steroid bc it has no anabolic effect what so ever. its mainly for athema but it burns fat on the side. But my friends argued that since its illegal and it does shape up your body so therefore its a kind of steroid. so basically i asking all of you guys to share ur opinions on this subject. Thanks.

    it is not a steroid - whether it has anabolic effects (it does, tho more so in animals) has no bearing on what it is - a steroid is a defined chemical classification denoting a certain chemical chain structure

    Tell your friends this....

    Clen is whats called a beta-2-adrenergic agonist. B2AA's are a class of bronchodilator drugs used for asthma. Albuterol is also in this same class.

    tell him its similar to ephedrine (surely he doesnt think thats a steroid too) - ephedrine is a beta agonist as well, also with a strong affinity to the beta2 receptors (like clen but not as strong - nothing is), ephedrine also has affinity for the beta 3, about 30 % of its action

    Awsome post, it's always good to see someone who actually knows what a "steroid " actually is. Who says we're all just a bunch of meatheads?

    Yes clen is definately not a steriod . Although it does have anti-catabolic effects, which is nice.

    Clen has effects as strong as AS but not one. Raises body temp which in turn also burns fat. Sides are far less check out the profiles.

    isn't steroid a chain of fat like hormone? clen has no effect like that. clen is like more like ADRELILINE.
    Adreliline is a hormone but not fat hormone!

    BUT..the amount you would have to take to truly be any where near effective as an anti-catabolic agent would surely be a lethal dose.

    is albuterol just as effecitive as clenbuterol ? I ask, because i just recieved some Turkish Ventolins and they are 4mg of albuterol a tab. I was planning on taking a total of 4 tabs/day. What do you think?

    I've been doing a little reading about it and the half-life of albuterol is shorter so it has to be taken more, hence the 4 tabs/day. I guess i'll run it liked planned and see how it compares to clen .

    Its not a not considered a steroid . Its considered illegal because the FDA did not approve it for OTC because it raises body temp 1-2 degrees and its other sides. When I used it the only side for me was raised temp.
