Sopharma is one of the more well known pharmaceutical brand names associated with manufacturing Clenbuterol. The company appears to be based in Bulgaria according to their website.
The Sopharma brand is completely legitimate and should be trusted. This article does not call into doubt it legitimacy.
Importing Sopharma pills might be a problem to a western country such as the US or United Kingdom due to the tightening customs legislation.
Although it is still not technically a controlled substance, the FDA and other government authorities have not classed it as intended for human use.
Someone might be importing it for bronchial passage dilation because they have a respiratory problem but the authorities are likely to be suspicious of the real intentions.
Besides the customs issues, there is the more pressing problem of fake/counterfeit product making its way to the buyer’s door.
The quality, efficacy and safety of this kind of substance is a completely unknown factor.
What’s more, the Sopharma brand is so well known that the counterfeit companies might take advantage of the unwitting customers and use the name to pass themselves of as legitimate.
Buying real Sopharma Clenbuterol is therefore arguably a lottery if purchased online from retailers in easter Europe, China or India.
How To Determine Whether Sopharma Clenbuterol is Real
Unless you are a chemist with the available equipment to completely test the validity of a drug, it is unlikely you will be able to tell whether a particular batch/packet of Sopharma clen tablets is genuine or not.
On many forums people have purchased a product under the name Sopharma and asked the other forum members whether the photo they have taken ‘looks legit.’
The problem is that the packaging is by no means a guarantee of the product’s validity. For all anybody knows, real Sopharma packaging is being used by the counterfeit manufacturer.
A piece of advice many give these people is to try the product and see if they ‘feel’ it working.
Orally ingesting something of unknown chemical make-up is not, in our opinion, a smart or safe way to determine whether it is fake or real.
Unfortunately, there are those who profit from other peoples’ misfortune, and in the world of legal loopholes – especially in the context of medication and drugs – the margin for this behaviour is even larger.
If you cannot verify the source, or you do not feel confident, of any substance – whether it be clenbuterol or simple supplements – we’d advise you to stay away from it.
Just like any other clen pill, the real Sopharma product is Clenbuterol Hydrochloride; a bronchial passage dilator which has been used to increase the airways in the lungs and widen blood vessels (vasodilation) allowing for increased flow of oxygen carrying red blood cells. Medically speaking, it may help people who suffer from respiratory disorders.
As a side effect, Clenbuterol is highly thermogenic and burns fat with potentially greater effect than most other drugs of its nature. Clen interacts with the beta-2 andrenergic receptors to provide both a powerful stimulant effect and thermogenic fat-burning effect.
To a lesser degree than the thermogenesis, Clenbuterol triggers the mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) to induce a mild anabolic effect (muscle growth). This is of particular interest to bodybuilders using the drug for cutting purposes as the loss of muscle might be significantly lower with Clen than otherwise.
Of course, as with most drugs the degree to which it is effective can vary heavily from one individual user to another. Suffice it to say that not everyone can expect typical results, as this is invariably not the case. Also, again with medicinal drugs there is potential, and perhaps a likelihood of negative side effects.
What Are the Side Effects of Using Sopharma Clenbuterol
The side effects of using genuine Sopharma product are the same as for any other clenbuterol product. The side effects of fake Sopharma Clen are by definition completely unknown.
Legit Sopharma Clen may cause tremors, cramping (this is due to the loss of taurine and potassium from the b2-receptor interaction), dehydration, elevated heart rate, headaches and sweats.
The worst long term issue might be cardiac hypertrophy which is the growth of the heart’s wall tissue (thereby shrinking the chambers). This can ultimately cause death of course. People with heart problems of any kind should not use clenbuterol.
The side effects are generally worsened on a dose dependent basis. This means that if high doses of clen are taken, OR if it is taken for too long a cycle, then the risk of side effects become greater. Responsible dosing and cycling off Clen at appropriate times may limit the side effects. There is no guarantees, as there are none with many pharmaceutical medications.
Abuse of Sopharma Clenbuterol
In the above section, responsible dosing was made reference to. This is a relative term, and the act of responsible dosing is largely dependent on the individual. Bodybuilding forums are teeming with comments of bravado; people claiming that they take this much Clen. The truth is any dose can be dangerous, therefore it is arguably better to start with very small doses to assess tolerance.
If the lowest dose available in tablet form is 20 mcg (that’s micrograms) which is 0.02 mg then it is possible to break the pill into 2, 3 or even 4 pieces and assess tolerance by taking as little as possible.
It is your body, not the other guy’s on the forum.
Results with Sopharma Clenbuterol
Genuine Sopharma Clenbuterol might have very similar effects as any other legitimate clen. People may experience fat-burning and stimulation, along with bronchial passage and blood vessel dilation.
A very important thing to remember is that diet, nutrition and exercise play a far more important role in physical appearance and general health than any pharmaceutical product will ever be able to.
In our opinion it is better to look after these aspects of your lifestyle before you consider using chemical assistance.
