Vet clinics are the new gyms


Usage of compounds to assist in fat loss has been present after people realize that fat isn’t really healthy and need a somewhat quick assistance in losing said fat. People have been turning to herbal medicine and the like in hopes to achieve weight loss more efficiently.

What most don’t know is that exercise is still the most effective way to lose excess fat. These “compounds” are there only to assist. One of the most commonly used fat burners is Clenbuterol. If you’re from Australia though, you might have a bit of a problem, mate. Find out why on

What is Clenbuterol in the first place?

Clenbuterol is used as a remedy for asthma but is more commonly used as a fat burning tool for those who want to lose fat faster. It in fact is more likely to find it in almost any fat loss programs offered. It works to increase one’s body temperature which makes the individual now able to burn calories at a more enhanced rate. It’s as simple as that. It has also been noted that even though it is not a steroid, it claims to have anabolic effects on users that is why it is also a substitute for those who want to look leaner without taking steroids, although it is believed that there are no studies that support these claims. It’s just probably because of the exercise and diet.


Why is it illegal in Australia then?

The legal issue of Clenbuterol in Australia has become a major topic of discussion due to its growing popularity among body builders and average gym-goers looking to shed a few pounds. According to the current Australian Laws, it is illegal to import, sell, or buy for personal use. However, it is approved by the Australian government for veterinary purposes only when used as an air dilator for horses. It can also be used to treat breathing conditions, such as acute asthma. We seem to have possibly stumbled upon a loophole here. So the next time you see a bunch of muscly men going to the vet instead of the gym, you probably know why. It’s for their horses, of course *wink wink*.

Side effects (no you will not turn into a horse)

Usage of Clen will eventually lead to a few side effects like feeling wired or jittery, hands shaking and sweating more excessively, headaches and nausea, cramps and insomnia. They are nearly not as dangerous as the side effects of strong anabolic steroids but they sure are just as annoying. Although excessive usage of Clen in larger than the recommended amount and for longer than the recommended period WILL lead to dangerous side effects such as high blood pressure, irregular heartbeats, trembling and even panic as well as cardiac hypotrophy which could potentially be fatal.

If you’re from Australia and you own a horse ranch, lucky you. Getting these is much easier for you since it is legal for veterinary use. But if you don’t have a horse ranch, or even a horse, you can still get your hands on these. However, keep in mind the penalties you might face when you are caught using it.
