GRAY MARKET ANABOLICS: THE BRONCHODILATORS
There exists one “quasi legal” category of drugs that have anabolic properties, although they are decidedly not anabolic steroids – bronchodilators. Typically, people’s exposure to such was with items like ephedra/ephedrine, which BTW is as close as your local pharmacy..
They’re kept behind the counter and you’ll have to present your license and sign for it, but ephedrine is still without question the strongest dieting aid commercially available. When combined with caffeine in a 10:1 ratio (i.e. 12.5mg of ephedrine and 125mg of caffeine), there is no better 1.) Appetite suppressant, 2.) Pre-workout energy and 3.) fat burner legally available.
If you’re interested in purchasing high mg tabs (Primitene is by label, 12.5 mg ephedrine/hcl per tab), you may want to visit here..
This will take you to a PayPal link for payment. He’s added a herbal description but you’ll definitely receive ephedrine, and they’re a whopping 30mg per tab. Price includes shipping. If you need to contact them directly, you may do so at: email@example.com. His name is Steve Pratt, and in the US you can legally import up to 200 tabs (6 grams) in any 30 day period.
But ephedrine is a fat burner, not an anabolic. It’ll help you keep muscle on a diet (anti-catabolic), but it doesn’t grow muscle. Wouldn’t it be great if there was something that not only burnt fat but grew some muscle too? Well, there is – clenbuterol.
BRONCHODILATOR #1: CLENBUTEROL
First things first: This is a very powerful stimulant, and you don’t use it WITH ephedrine, you use it IN PLACE of ephedrine.. 🙂
In the Underground Steroid Handbook II, Dan Duchaine debuted another curious asthma medication, Clenbuterol. It’s so potent; it’s sold in micrograms, not milligrams. Clen has been known to work minor miracles on bodies in as little as 2 weeks. The catch is, it fits the receptor like a glove and then stops working at about the 2-3 week mark. Therefore, I’d suggest using it for a duration of 2-3 weeks, with at least 30 days off before repeating again (more on that later). DOSAGE
Clen is also a stimulant, so it’s critical you start the dosage low and graduate up. I would suggest finding the lowest effective dose you can tolerate. You should never go over 120mcg/day for a female or 140mcg/day for a male.
Never jump more than 20mcg at a time, as specified below…
For women: 40 mcg – 60 mcg – 80 mcg – 100 mcg – 120 mcg/day (no higher)
For men: 60 mcg – 80 mcg – 100 mcg – 120 mcg – 140 mcg/day (no higher)
Taurine and potassium are important to get while on clen, so make sure you’re getting plenty of both. Shoot for at least 3 grams of Taurine/day and either eat 3 to 4 apples and oranges or drink 200 to 400 mg of potassium per day. Naturally, at least 8 glasses of water should also be consumed so that the body does not dehydrate.
IS IT LEGAL (IN THE U.S.)?
Per the scheduling laws, it shouldn’t be as you’ll find it in the same legislation discussing anabolic steroids. Like GH though, it’s not a steroid but associated with it, so they specify it. Here’s the confounding part: It’s readily available through many a “research chemical” website.
I was originally worried about legality but realized they’re using the same “research” clause that makes the rest of their stuff legal: As long as you’re using it for research (and not human use), it’s AOK. Most peptide places will also ship smaller orders without a signature being required, so you needn’t worry about that either.
Finally, I would encourage you to keep use to 2 weeks at a time, no more than 2 or (at the most) 3 times per year. There is some concern with clen and cardiotoxicity, so that needs to be mentioned. Like everything else though, it’s largely a function of dose and duration. Keep it to a minimum, and you’ll minimize the risks.
BRONCHODILATOR #2, ALBUTEROL PLUS L-DOPA
NON HORMONAL HISTORY
The boulevard of broken dreams is a LONG road, for those of use looking for non-hormonal anabolic agents (NHAA}. Imagine if you will a non-steroidal, non hormonal anabolic agent that works. I mean really, really works. Even better, it burns fat leading to an absolutely amazing re-comp effect.
How about nearly 17lbs of muscle in 14 weeks!!!*
This is truly a steroid like gain. Hell, it even blows something like Anavar away! So just how did researchers come across this discovery and what are the particulars?
Glad you asked..
A LONG, LONG TIME AGO..
Ten years ago neurologists at the University of Arkansas published in Clinical Neuropharmacology the results of a small study. Although it used only 8 people, the conclusions these researchers drew was remarkable. The subjects weren’t athletes, but they were suffering from Parkinson’s disease. And with an average age of 59, they sure weren’t primed to build much muscle.
After the onset of Parkinson’s, the brain’s production of dopamine declines rapidly. It isn’t long before the decline is so severe, death follows. To delay that unfortunate fate, Parkinson’s patients take L-dopa, thus boosting the brain’s supply of dopamine. So these men were already taking L-dopa. Nothing magic was happening until they added Albuterol, an Rx asthma medication. For what it’s worth, Albuterol and Salbutamol are the same drug, just different names.
ORIGINAL INTENT OF THE STUDY
The original intent of the study was to see if the body could use L-dopa more efficiently. Previous animal studies had shown cells absorb more dopamine when exposed to a beta-2 agonist, such as the asthma medication Albuterol. For reference sake, ephedrine is both a beta-1 and 2 agonists, and is the closest “cousin” with which most will be familiar.
The average L-dopa dose for these folks was 481mg/day. So roughly 120mg/dose. The average daily dose of Albuterol was 16mg/day, so 4mg/dose.
Now here’s the only pain in the ass factor: This combo was dosed 4 times/day. That can be a real PITA, particularly if you’re dealing with a bulk powder for your L-dopa.
Regardless, I’ll put up with the hassle for 17lbs of muscle. I’m betting most of you will too! J
The study lasted 14 weeks and only 1 participant dropped out. A woman who experienced headache, restlessness and tremor. Almost certainly due to the Albuterol.
The rest soldiered on, performing strength training just twice a week.
Maximal strength increased though the effect was modest. I tend to think the real world effect is actually greater, as almost certainly these people weren’t using loading patterns, etc. like we do in The Blueprint.
While there was no change in the subject’s bodyweight, their lean body mass increased by 7.7 kg or 16.94 f’n pounds of muscle! Did you get the fact that there was no change in bodyweight?
That means for every succulent pound of muscle gained, the dynamic duo vanquished a pound of fat along with it!!!
How does this compare vs. anabolics? The below is a quote from an online board, speaking to results from an Anavar cycle.
“my mate has just done 12 weeks of var at 60mg per day… he’s a model so didn’t want big increases in muscle, but he added about 5-6lb of lean mass. stayed lean and looked really well after it.”
Translation? We are dealing with some good/potent shit here!! 🙂
So as with anything, there are some risks. Whether or not these risks outweigh the benefits, only you can decide. As for me, it’s a no brainer – the answer is yes. Why?
No liver toxicity
No deleterious effects on blood lipids
No suppression of the hypothalamus/pituitary/testicular axis
And lookie here..
Wouldn’t you know it, Albuterol is available as a research chemical! And damn if it isn’t on sale, buy 1 get 1 free! So it’s available as a research chemical, and it’s quite inexpensive to boot – 32 clams. When you get 1 for free, it brings the cost down to a low, low $16. Even my alligator arms can (and did) spring for that.
In the event you’re a little nervous about ordering, I have more good news for you: You don’t even have to sign for it.
Now this is important: Albuterol is only legal if you’re using it for research purposes. Once you ingest it or otherwise divert it for human use, it could be construed as illegal.
And of course, I’d never suggest you do that.
Pure L-dopa like these study participants used really isn’t feasible. It just doesn’t exist as a pure product. However, the herb Mucuna Pruriens is a natural source, and high % standardized extracts are available. The cheapest of which is at powdercity.com (a 98% extract). BUT – it’s a powder and dosing that 4x’s/day really isn’t practical. You can’t really cap it either as that would be pretty cumbersome so…
But look here: It just so happens NOW’s product is dosed at 120mg 🙂
Don’t you just hate it when shit costs a lot? I can and do shell out top $ for truly effective/true to label products. So any little bit I can save means a lot. Fortunately for us, this entire “cycle” is going to cost in the neighborhood of..
$34.47 for 3 bottles of L-dopa $32 for 2 bottles of Albuterol
$128. Maybe $138 when you take into account shipping.
That’s a pretty healthy supply that should last you a good long while. Since I suck at math, I can’t give you a precise #. Hell even if you have to double this order, it comes out to less than $3/day.
For a potential gain of 17lbs in 14 weeks, this is an absolute must try!
