Oral vs Injectable Clenbuterol
In conjunction with the common oral variant, there is actually a modestly popular injectable form of clenbuterol known as “Helios.”
This injectable variant is a combination of Clenbuterol (40mg) and yohimbine hydrochloride (5mg); the latter of which is an alpha-2 receptor stimulator, meaning that it directly intervenes with body fat (as does clenbuterol) and serves to release triglycerides into the blood stream for subsequent excretion.
Aerobic exercise should be combined with use of helios in order to increase the flow of triglycerides to form free fatty acids (fat that is found in the blood) through the circulatory system, although some users rely on its thermogenic effect alone.
This injectable variant is rare, hence why it is not often talked about. It is however rather effective, users commonly spot inject it (whereas they target fat laden areas as their injection site) in order to specifically reduce body fat in stubborn areas of the body.
The areas that seem to respond the best to helios are around the love handles, triceps, thighs, waist, and anywhere that the stubborn areas of fat are ‘estrogenic’ by nature.
One disadvantage of helios is the inability to adjust the ratio of Clenbuterol to yohimbine HCL. In order to maintain consistent blood levels of yohimbine HCL, 3 injections per day is the preferable method (recommended daily dose of yohimbine HCL is 10-12 mgs).
Of course, this leads to an important consideration, which is how many people can handle 80 mcg of Clenbuterol daily? And of equal importance, how can interested users ensure the stimulant effect of yohimbine HCL does not overwhelm them?
The way to test your tolerance to yohimbine HCL and start a cycle safely is to start with a low dose of approximately 50% of your normal dose (using Clenbuterol as a guide). For example if your daily dose of Clenbuterol is 40 mcg, start with 20 mcg to test your body’s response before increasing the dose.
In regards to which one is best, they both suit different purposes. The oral variant is without doubt easier to supplement and is likely going to offer almost directly comparable benefits to the injectable variant.
Still, for those who wish to try this spot reduction technique (or even just the injectable variant in general for its potentially enhanced fat burning capacity), Helios would certainly be worth integrating into at least one cycle to gauge personal effectiveness.
You would need to administer this variety in such a way that the amount of active clenbuterol (per mcg) fell in line with the oral form. Regardless of the variety you choose, maximum dosage guidelines still apply.
This is especially important as although clenbuterol can vary in dosage and strength, Helios has a superior bioavailability to injectable clenbuterol, meaning it is far more potent on a mg-to-mg basis
