What You Should Know
Drenbuterol is a fat burning supplement that claims to burn fat and increase thermogenic processes, such as metabolism and energy, through its patented formula of caffeine and proprietary blend of Yohimbine HCI and Beta Methoxyphenylethylamine. Claiming to be a safer and more potent alternative to Clenbuterol, it says it has the same effects while providing safer ingredients that are proven to boost thermogenic processes and give the dieter a sense of euphoria. One dose of Drenbuterol is to be administered daily, and their company does not recommend taking it more than once daily or taking other supplements or stimulants.
Drenbuterol is mainly marketed towards bodybuilders who want to cut fat and is heavily discussed on bodybuilding message forums and websites. Supplement stores and online retailers sell Drenbuterol for fairly cheap at about $24.00 per 30ct bottle. Although smaller sizes or samples are not offered, a short money back guarantee is offered to unsatisfied customers. Let’s evaluate Drenbuterol’s formula.
Mesolimbic Beta Agonist Complex: Caffeine, L-5 Hydroxytryptophan, Beta Methoxyphenylethylamine and Yohimbine HCl).
Other Ingredients: Yellow Opaque Gelatin Capsule, Maltodextrin, Silicon Dioxide and Magnesium Stearate.
Drenbuterol’s first ingredient is Caffeine, followed by a proprietary blend that features Yohimbine HCI. Both ingredients may present their own issues and side effects. Caffeine, a stimulant that decreases fatigue signals in the central nervous system, works mainly a diuretic and may temporarily increase energy levels. It also increases heart rate and nervousness however, and in larger doses may cause dehydration. Because of its impact on the heart, it is often not used by people with persisting heart conditions.
Yohimbine HCI is an extract from yohimbine bark, native to western Africa, and although it is considered similar to Yohimbe, it is not the same extract. Yohimbine HCI’s main difference from Yohimbe is the level of yohimbine chemicals present in its bark. It contains negligible amounts. Therefore any benefits may not be as evident in this extract, which may include the ability to reduce fat if used in conjunction with exercise. This may also reduce the side effects associated with yohimbine, including rapid heartbeat, nervousness, and dizziness. Still, both ingredients present numerous heart-related side effects, but it may help ward off drowsiness and fatigue. There is no evidence it may increase metabolism or increase positive endorphins in the body, however.
- Contains stimulants which may temporarily increase energy.
- Is an affordable fat burning supplement.
- Does not contain any ingredients that are shown to increase the metabolism.
- Caffeine may cause dehydration and increased heartbeat.
- Similarly, Yohimbine HCI may cause increased heartbeat, dizziness, and nervousness.
Drenbuterol claims to be a safer and more potent supplement than Clenbuterol, but their ingredients only offer few documented benefits to bodybuilders and dieters. The heavy use of Caffeine may be a concern for those with heart problems, as this stimulant may increase symptoms related to it. It is a cheap supplement despite these concerns, however, but dieters should be careful with this supplement.
