Clenbuterol is one of the most famous fat burners in the history of fitness and bodybuilding. Not many compounds can replicate the same fat burning effects that clen produces in such a short period of time.
However, clenbuterol’s illegal and not everyone wants to break the law in order to get shredded. Clenbuterol’s also a pain to get because unless you’ve got a prescription from your doc (which is unlikely), you’ve got to go through the black market to purchase it.
Consequently, people are now looking for the best clenbuterol alternative on the market. In this article I’m going to tell you about a cutting agent called clenbutrol, which I’ve used to great effect during several cutting phases (before I started juicing).
Crazy Bulk is a company which has been in business since 2004. Due to the high demand for clenbuterol, they created a product that mimicked the same fat burning effects as clenbuterol – but without the harsh side effects.
Crazy Bulk succeeded in formulating a best-selling fat burner, made up of some of the most powerful natural ingredients around.
Here’s a quick look at clenbutrol’s 3 main ingredients:
- Garcinia cambogia – 150mg
- Guarana extract – 114mg
- Niacin – 21mg
Studies have shown Guarana extract has the power to increase your metabolism by 11% in just 12 hours following supplementation. There’s also evidence to suggest that guarana extract inhibits the production of fat cells.
Studies suggest that it’s the hydroxycitric acid (HCA) content in garcinia’s fruit peel, which makes it an effective fat burner. Although dramatic weight loss is unlikely from garcinia cambogia (alone), researchers have found the fruit to have a positive impact on weight loss.
Niacin can naturally stimulate thermogenesis (similar to real clenbuterol), due to its flushing effect; however it’s effect on fat loss is unknown due to a lack of scientific research.
Because these ingredients are proven to be safe, Clenbutrol won’t land you in trouble with the law or send you to the ER.
Clenbutrol comes in pill form, so there’s also no need to panic about injections. Clenbutrol is designed to burn significant amounts of fat when taken for 30 days (and is combined with workouts 4-5 times a week and a calorie controlled diet). Don’t expect this supplement to do anything if you’re eating like a pig and doing half-hearted workouts.
Is Clenbutrol the Best Clenbuterol Alternative?
There are several companies which produce clenbuterol alternatives online. However, some of these companies are a bit shady. I’m not going to name names, but equally it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work out if a company’s trustworthy or not.
If you’re thinking about buying a clenbuterol alternative online, watch out for these red flags:
- Doesn’t have any contact information on their website
- Doesn’t have positive 3rd party reviews
- Doesn’t have a strong social media following.
Crazy bulk on the other hand literally tick all of these boxes (which is why I tried their supplement). This shows that they’ve got nothing to hide and they’re happy to be contacted. They also have a live chat feature installed on their site so if you have any questions you can get quick answers.
Crazybulk’s clenbutrol supplement is widely regarded as the best clenbuterol alternative, because it contains effective ingredients that have been proven to work time and time again.
After bulking up in the off-season many gym rats accumulate body fat in the process. Thus, in order to reduce their body fat % they turn to powerful fat burners like clenbuterol (clenbutrol).
Taking a cutting agent like clenbutrol can be the difference between a good physique and a great physique.
Here’s several benefits of taking clen:
- Narrower Waist
- Lower body fat
- Increased muscle definition
- More visible vascularity
- Increased energy
- Suppressed appetite
Most people would love to experience the above benefits…who wouldn’t want to look leaner and feel better? Even female celebrities have been linked with taking clenbuterol, in a bit to keep the weight off.
It’s also worth mentioning that clenbuterol’s so powerful, you don’t even need to go to the gym in order for it to spike your metabolism.
…However, for maximum fat loss, regular exercise is recommended
What makes clenbutrol a great alternative for me is that it burns fat in the same way as clenbuterol does – by stimulating thermogenesis. it first stimulates the central nervous system (thanks to the guarana extract), which causes a release of adrenaline and body heat. The body then shifts into a constant state of calorie burning, as the body consumes energy trying to cool itself back down again.
Don’t be surprised if your skin looks a little flushed when taking a clenbutrol, this is just a sign of an elevated body temperature. This simply shows that the supplement’s working. You also might sweat more in your workouts compared to normal, so you might want to bring a towel to the gym bro.
Drawbacks to Clen Alternatives
Clen alternatives won’t be as powerful as the real thing. Also Crazy Bulk’s clenbuterol alternative is priced a little high at $62. However, it does have great reviews so sometimes you have to pay a little extra to get the best results. In fairness to Crazy bulk, they do run some great deals to help you save money so it’s not all bad for your wallet.
They run a buy 2 get 1 free offer on all their supplements, which also applies to their stacks. So if you had the money you could make use of this offer and get a free cutting stack (consisting of winstrol, testosterone, clenbuterol and anavar alternatives) if you were to buy 2.
This would give you 12 bottles (or 3 months) worth of fat burners.
Despite Crazy Bulk’s generous promotions, you will be able to find websites that offer a cheaper clenbuterol alternative than theirs, however these sites don’t tend to look as trustworthy so I personally stayed away from them. Personally, I think it’s better to spend $62 on a company where you know you’re going to receive your product and get good results, rather than spending $30 and not knowing whether the supplement will arrive..
