“I bought my Clenbuterol supplements online and have been taking them for a week and a half. With almost no exercise I have lost 6 pounds so far. I did cut back a lot on what I was eating and I drink a ton of water. Also using Potassium and Taurine to make sure I don’t get cramps. I take two pills around 9 AM and feel energized all day. Other reviews have suggested using more than one dose per day but I don’t want to take them later so I can still get to sleep on line. I am losing weight and do not have any side effects so far but I am making sure to take less than the maximum amount.” – Miko8292
During the two 'off' weeks, an ECA stack can be used as required. ECA will not cause such a pronounced down regulation and desensitization of the receptors, certainly not to the extent of clen. Ephedrine has a short half life in contrast to clen which results in times throughout the day where the betas will partially recover from stimulation by adrenaline and nor-adrenaline. Potency is also much weaker that that of clen, as it is not a specific agonist. Ephedrine is also thought to increase the conversion of endogenous/exogenous T4 to T3 through the activation of deiodinase enzymes responsible for this process. This is important as clen is known to slow the rate of T4 to T3 conversion. As a side note, some bodybuilders will use T3 concurrently with the Clenbuterol/ECA cutting cycle (together with certain anabolic/androgenic steroids no doubt!) in an attempt to at least maintain plasma T3 levels.
