  1. Clenbuterol vs albuterol


    How exactly does clen compare to albuterol, both being a beta 2 receptor antagonist. However how do they compare in terms of fat loss and such. Does albuterol have the same anti catabolic properties of clen?



    thanks for any info on albuterol someone can provide



    Eric


  2. i dont think albuterol actually helps at all with fat loss but i may be wrong. Bump.

  3. albuterol has a shorter half life.

    Also from their store:

    Albuterol, like its closely related chemical cousin clenbuterol, is an asthma medication that has been adopted by athletes and bodybuilders as an ergogenic aid. Like clenbuterol, albuterol binds to the so called beta 2 adrenergic receptors found on cells throughout the body. The beta 2 receptors on fat cells activate an enzyme called hormone sensitive lipase. This breaks up stored fat into free fatty acids that are able to then leave the fat cell and serve as a fuel source in other tissues. In athletes the primary target of these fatty acids is working muscle. This is the familiar process we know as lipolysis. Albuterol, like clen, is a potent lipolytic agent. But simply freeing up fat is not enough. Unless the body can burn the extra FFA they will simply be reincorporated into fat. Albuterol has the ability to elevate a person's metabolic rate so these FFA can be utilized for fuel. Numerous animal studies have shown that clenbuterol increases both muscle size and strength; data supporting these effects in humans are sparse. Albuterol on the the other hand has been shown to significantly increase both strength and endurance in humans (1,2). As an added benfit, albuterol lowers LDL and total cholesterol, while at the same time elevating HDL, the "good cholesterol": "Significant alterations (P < or = .02) were observed in total cholesterol ([TC] -9.1% +/- 2.5%), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol ([LDL-C] - 15.0% +/- 2.9%), and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ([HDL-C] +10.4% +/- 3.2%) concentrations, as well as the TC/HDL-C (-17.4% +/- 2.6%) and LDL-C/HDL-C (-22.9% +/- 2.4%) ratios." (3) 4 mg of albuterol taken approximately 1 to 2 hours before a workout allows for peak plasma levels to be reached during the training session. Additionally the much shorter half life of albuterol compared to clenbuterol allows one to benefit from its ergogenic effects during a training session but not suffer the sleeplessness that many clenbuterol users experience. Moreover, the short half life leads to much less beta 2 receptor downregulation than with clenbuterol, allowing one to use the drug daily for longer periods of time. On the other hand, if one is primarily interested in fat loss rather than performance enhancement, one could take 3 or 4 multiple doses of albuterol throughout the day, always of course cutting back if clenbuterol-like side effects are felt. 1 Bottle Of CEM Laboratories Liquid USP Albuterol Sulfate is 30 ML at 4 MG/ML.

  5. Howcome albuterol isn't more popular?

  6. ^^my question exactly. That's what lead me to ask the difference. If all that is true than why do i not here more people using it instead of clen? I figured there must be a reason i never hear about it, and it's never a wise decision to take something you haven't heard enough about to make a good decision about.

  7. Albuterol is a very commonly prescribed asthma medication. I've used it off and on for years.

    It's effects are nothing magical. I don't mean to slam anybody now trying to make a buck off another research chemical, (because it is kind of clever to see this pushed), but a stimulant like ephedrine + caffeine would be far more effective at doing the same thing. Caffeine by itself might even be more effective.

    All the information pouring out on the effectiveness of Albuterol is propaganda, in my opinion.

    Don't forget that it was clenbuterol that was banned. Albuterol is the mild replacement.

    Well I just read an article in Time where a 11 yr old in CA. is using Albuterol to fight muscular dystrophy. It was a study set up by a doctor at UCLA. And it seems to be working. Here's a quote "Since he started taking the pills, he can run faster and longer, and tests of his muscle strength confirm what he already knows: he is getting stronger." Oh and the doctor got the idea from a site like ours, so the "man" is watching.

  9. Bump Any more info? Experiences?

    The only reason for this was safety due to the shorter half-life.

  11. haha, if anyone wants some albuterol, ill send em some of my old asthma inhalers from when i was a kid

  12. If you kept the dosing frequent, the albuterol would be highly effective, I believe.

    do have the article about this subject!!. its sugesting that albutrol is anabolic, and since clen and albutrol are similar i would like to seee how its anabolic in humans. there is studies that shows clen to be anabolic in rats, but many say its not the case in humans.

  14. Well if all the info in the article is true, I especially like the part about lowering LDL and increasing HDL. Since clen is great post cycle, it (albuterol should have similar effects) would be espcecially great following an M1T cycle. Not only for nutrient partitioning, ect., but to get your lipids back to normal faster.

    What is a good dosing protocol for albuterol? This is all brand new to me.

  15. That part alone makes it sound intriguing. I'm always a little freaked after a M1T cycle..worrying my arteries are gonna crack or something, lol.

    That is very promising if it could help with the HDL after a M1t cycle.

  17. As always, I'll be the guinea pig on this one. I'll order some on the 15th.

  18. Is this the same albuterol thats in my inhalers and breathing machine
    that you are talking about

  19. i found this on UCLA site, its realy intresting


    Albuterol, a beta-agonist, is a promising agent for this type of pharmacological approach. Beta-agonists are a class of drug that have been shown to improve the quality and functional properties of muscle, both in healthy and sick individuals. This drug already has FDA approval for the treatment of asthma, and could be readily available to patients if promising results ensue from this study. It is a drug with minimal side effects and is safe for a pediatric population. However, when albuterol is administered as an inhaled aerosol in the treatment of asthma, it has no effect on skeletal muscle.Albuterol effects on skeletal muscle require long-term release of the albuterol into the circulatory system, which can occur when the drug is taken as a slowly releasing tablet.

  20. I found this link...they sell 200ml albuterol syrup for $17.00

    http://www.myrxforless.com/pharmacy/...show.asp?c=922


    How much of this do you need at a time?

  21. bump to this...supersoldier did you ever use that albuterol? this lipid improvement aspect is promising for SD PCT...

  22. Has anyone ever kept a log on albuterol for fat loss??? I seem tempted to try it myself!

  23. Does albuterol have the same anti catabolic properties of clen?
    Clen was showed to have anti-catabolic properties in animals, but humans can not handle the amount it would to take for clen to be anabolic.

    fo' realz yo.

    seriously, i am rather excited at the prospect. salbutamol is so goddamn cheap and if it works (that is, burns fat. i dont care about anabolism) then i am all over it.

    i've scoured other boards and seen VERY few logs. a number of guys who have used it say it works just like clen, only dosed more often....some prefer it over clen.

  25. Anecdotally, I had for several years noticed my wife would lean up every Spring, without any additional physical activity. It finally dawned on me (slow as I am) that every Spring she gets severe asthma. Thus, she would use her rescue inhaler (albuterol) four or five times a day. I honestly think that the albuterol was doing the job, since she would lean up beautifully without touching a weight or setting foot on a treadmill.

    I don't see any reason why albuterol wouldn't work. As others have said, there are studies, human studies to boot, that show fat loss with repeated doses of oral albuterol. It would probably work in a trans as well, just like clen. I am unsure of the dose though.

    The nice thing about it is the safety factor. If you have a bad reaction, or just don't like the feeling, you just wait a few hours and its gone. With clen, it can take days to resolve unless you have a beta blocker--and even then, clen has a longer half life than propranolol, so you could wake up to nasty sides in the middle of the night.

    It's too bad there is so little user feedback on this. I have some albuterol powder, so I just might have to run a little experiment myself.

  26. very cool jvangard, thanks for contributing.

    ordered some 8mg pills today...will post a log/results if anyone cares...? i'm pretty excited about a clen alternative that's almost good for you.

  27. Where did u find 8mg pills???? I can only find sprays!

    they're out there. cant really post links as it is an Rx

  29. bump for feedback on Albuterol

  30. I get asthma in the Spring/Summer as well. Maybe I'll give this a try if I can get a script.
