Clenbuterol: Steroid or Only a Diet Pill?

Clenbuterol is a sympathomimetic amine, acting as a Beta-adrenergic receptor stimulant to target deadly upper respiratory track problems such as Asthma. It is quite similar to the adrenaline and Nor-adrenaline hormone. Other than its broncho-dilating and smooth muscle relaxing property, it also has been path-breaking when used as a thermogenic, which is the main characteristic being employed in a weight loss drug. So it is occasionally confused with an anabolic steroid available in the market, most of which are also heat-liberating in nature. But it is not a steroid!

There are different types of adrenoceptors but Clen interacts with beta-2 receptor mainly and seldom with beta-1 and 3. The mechanism of action differs from that of steroids and the primary goal is to expand and enhance metabolic activity to burn down adipose (fat cells) rather than gaining muscles. According to research studies, it is also used to treat a severe allergic reaction known as anaphylactic shock, control histamine responses, hypertension, swelling, migraine, arrhythmias, and cardiac shock.

Anabolic effects of Clen:

Though Clen is not a steroid, but its anabolic effects are quite effective, depending on the term of usage. Research has shown its trivial anabolic effect on rat muscle tissue, and increase in its intensity when used for prolonged period. Clenbuterol is clubbed with steroids to induce physical enhancements and anti-catabolic properties, by operating as a “signalingmTOR pathway, it helps to promote protein synthesis, induce androgen signaling, enhance breakdown of triglycerides and fatty acids and impart fat-loss from blubbery parts of the body. It helps to suppress hunger and ensures water loss from the body. It also leads to increased cardiac output and improves the breathing passage to augment oxygen transportation in the blood. Clen inhibits the action of insulin, including its fat-storage properties. The half-life of this drug is about 36-48 hours so only one dose would be enough for remarkable results.

Tolerance and Clenbuterol:

Research has shown that Clen’s effect diminishes over time, because of down-regulation of Beta-2 Adrenergic receptors. This happens because of over-use of any drug leading to desensitization of a receptor. This can be countered using a drug (e.g. KetotifenFumerate, which is an anti-histamine) which up-regulates the beta-2 receptors. So Clenbuterol should be used for a short period of time in any body-building regime.

Drug Dosage:

This drug is suitable for both male and females. However, the dose is not same. For males, it ranges from 40-120 mcg/day and for females it can go up to 20-60 mg/day, all depending on an individual’s BMI. Each dose should be taken every day in the morning or afternoon, but not at night because of its interference with the sleep. One is advised to drink more water and fruit juice when consuming this drug. Heavy exercise like cardio should be pulled more during Clen cycle. This shall enhance the effect of this drug. According to research studies, it is strictly advised not to stop the Clenbuterol cycle suddenly, but gradually reducing the doses, to prevent the occurrence of withdrawal symptoms.

Uses of HGH Supplements

There are people who turn to the supplements of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) so that they can keep their body looking youthful. However, experts say that they don’t give precision to depend on and they can also cause harm.

Our natural HGH is produced by pituitary glands and that happens to both children and adults. It helps you regulate body composition, muscle growth, bone growth, body fluids, fat metabolism and heart function. These are synthetically produced and works like an active ingredient in various prescription drugs and also other products available on the internet. To know distinctively about HGH Supplements, redirect to

HGH – Uses and Abuses

The use of synthetic human growth hormone began in 1985 and it has been approved by FDA for limited uses in both children and adults. For children, HGH injections treat short stature from unknown reasons and also pure growth from numerous medical reasons like:

  • Turner’s syndrome: this is a genetic disorder which affects gild’s development
  • Prader-Willi syndrome: this is a rare genetic disorder that make them have poor muscle tone, less sex hormones and constant hunger
  • HGH deficiency or insufficiency
  • Chronickidney disease
  • Smaller birth since gestational period

The approved uses of HGH for adults are:

  • Short bowel syndrome: condition where nutrients don’t get properly absorbed from intestinal disease or surgical removal of a big portion of small intestine
  • HGH deficiency from rare pituitary tumors or treatment
  • Muscle-wasting disease like HIV or AIDs

The most common reasons to use HGH are not approved by FDA. There are people who use this hormone with more performance enhancement drugs like anabolic steroids, for building muscles and improving athletic performance. However, HGH’s outcome on athletic performances are still unknown.

The levels of our HGH go on decreasing with age, but some anti-aging experts speculate and claim that these products can reverse age-related bodily deterioration! However, these are not scientifically proven or approved of.

There are fitness freaks that would opt for injectable HGH from doctors who prescribe these for off-label purposes and these are not FDA approved. You can get these over the counter, online, in internet pharmacies, anti-aging clinics, and more.


There are more people who purchase HGH products and claim that it does increase their body’s production of natural HGH. These are used in forms of pills and sprays. There are companies advertised through TV commercials who claim to get you back your body and reverse the biological clock. It also helps in reducing fat, restoring hair growth, natural hair color, building muscle, strengthen immune system, normalize blood sugar, improve energy, enhance sex life, quality of sleep, eyesight and memory.

There is no reliable evidence that support the claims of the outcome from the Federal Trade Commission, and not everybody can prescribe the use of HGH given by injections. When you consume it orally, it digests through the stomach before getting absorbed in the body. To know all about these supplements and to answer what you need to buy, log onto

With YoFloor acquisition, Livspace aims to bring 3D visualisation tools for designers, homeowners

As a homeowner when you are designing your own home, you often go through various magazines and websites. After scrolling down various websites, you share your ideas with your designer, which results in number of lengthy meetings.

Decorate With Intention: Let Your House Help You De-Stress

With the light waning earlier each evening as I write this in early November, it’s natural to be craving more downtime. After the seemingly endless shopping, working and errand running, it’s a relief to come home and finally rest up — but when we slip into that all-too-familiar routine of screen time and snacks right up until bed, our bodies and minds don’t have a chance to fully recharge. By setting up your space with care and establishing a few simple new routines, you can choose to replenish your energy instead. Take these 12 tips to heart and add your own favorite ways to undo stress in the Comments section.

1. Tend to green plants and fresh flowers. Living plants add fresh oxygen to the air and remove toxins, which is especially important for our homes in fall and winter, when we open our windows less often. But beyond plants’ air-purifying effect, the act of tending to living plants or arranging cut flowers is a wonderful way to let go of stress.

2. Do something that recharges you beforeturning on the TV. If you are having trouble cutting back on a TV-watching habit, try this instead: Tell yourself that you are free to watch as much TV as you want, but first you must do something unplugged. Make a list of little treat activities you never seem to find the time for and pick one of them to try each night.
 3. Engage your senses.Create a haven for your senses with a fluffy rug and luscious textiles, beautiful music, favorite art and photography books, and a delicious room fragrance. Close your laptop, shut off the TV and allow yourself the simple pleasure of delighting your senses.

4. Lower the lights before bed. Artificial light can throw off our natural sleep rhythms, especially at this time of year. Try getting out in the sun a bit each day and gradually lowering the lights for an hour or so before bed for a sounder sleep.

5. Establish boundaries between work and home.A fact of modern life for many of us is that we simply cannot leave work at work. But even if you must do some work at home, setting limits will go far toward preserving your personal space. Setting a cutoff time works well for many people (for example, no work after 9 p.m.), but try to give yourself a whole day completely without work as well.

6. Set up a staging area near the door. Make a point of putting down everything you come in the door with — coat, bag, shoes and so on — as soon as you come in. Changing into comfy slippers and leaving your work and mail behind you will help signal a shift from outside worries to the comforts of home.

7. Fill your fridge and pantry with real food. When our schedules are overfilled, it seems easier to rely on takeout, but having healthy ingredients for meals and snacks on hand is often faster and cheaper than going to pick up food from a restaurant. If you’re truly strapped for time, perhaps try swapping out a few takeout meals with healthy snacks and high-quality ready-made food from the market.

8. Set your table every night. No matter what you are serving, setting the table with real dishes, cloth napkins and candles nourishes more than just our bellies; it signals us to slow down and appreciate what we have.

9. Practice mindfulness while doing small chores. After dinner, instead of dreading the cleanup, view it as an opportunity to start a mini meditation practice. Focus on your breathing as you attend to the task at hand; when you notice your mind wandering, gently remind yourself to refocus on your breath.

10. Get social. Shake up your weeknight routine by inviting a friend over to share coffee and dessert, or even start a group around a common interest. If a book club sounds too serious, get creative — how about a wine- and cheese-tasting club, a periodical society to discuss favorite magazines, a film club or a crafts night?

11. Make your bed every morning. Sometimes one simple thing can make your whole day go more smoothly, and I’ve found that making the bed is definitely one of those things. No matter how rushed your mornings, taking a moment to smooth those covers will give you a sense that things are in order.

12. Develop a simple 10-minute bedtime routine. Before turning in, take just 10 minutes to walk through the house putting things in their places. Run the dishwasher, toss laundry in baskets, put away books and papers, and set out your clothes and bag for the next day.

Google, Amazon Expand Into On-Demandc

Amazon and Google are vying to become the Uber for handymen and capitalize on the growth of the on-demand services industry. A recent Intuit survey estimates 7.6 million Americans will be working in the so-called “gig” economy by 2020, more than double the current total of 3.2 million people.

Google, Amazon Expand Into On-Demand Home Services

“This is a multibillion-dollar market, and clearly the incumbents have not done an effective job in providing a seamless, safe and positive experience for users,” said Mizuho Securities analyst Neil Doshi. “Just looking at stock prices of Angi and Yelp, there seems to be an opportunity for larger players or new start-ups to disrupt this space.”

Amazon is diving head-on into delivering on-demand services. The e-commerce giant launched Amazon Flex on Tuesday, enabling delivery drivers in Seattle to sign up for shifts through an app. In March, it rolled out Amazon Home Services, powered by service marketplace start-up TaskRabbit.

“In less than 60 seconds, customers can browse, purchase and schedule tons of professional services from wall mounting a new TV to installing a new garbage disposal to house cleaning, directly on,” said an Amazon spokesperson.

Amazon also recently expanded Home Services, which offers more than 900 professional services, to 15 cities in the US. The company guarantees all purchases, so if customers are not satisfied, they get their money back. “People are always afraid that a plumber or contractor might rip them off, so the platform that can provide transparency in price and recourse for quality will be the winner. We like Amazon’s approach this far. And Amazon has deep pockets and a lot of patience,” said Doshi.

In contrast to Amazon, Google is dipping its toes into the space, quietly beta-testing a new AdWords Express product in the Bay Area over the past several weeks. Home Service Ads invites plumbers, cleaners, locksmiths and other providers to advertise and manage customer inquiries, correspondence and appointments, all through Google. Home Service Ads are displayed as sponsored search results above organic search results. Homeowners can browse profiles, reviews and ratings, and contact up to three people at once to compare quotes. The company declined to comment.

The search giant is touting the new ad product on its website: “Google will show your ads on our platform, and we’ll help customers find you and set up appointments. The rest is up to you.” Google screens businesses and requires background checks, proof of insurance and licenses, but does handle transactions. The search giant also warns contractors: “Serious or repeatedly negative customer feedback may result in lower ad rankings (including your ad not showing at all).”

First Analysis Securities Corp. analyst Todd Van Fleet is bullish on the opportunity: “I think Google and Amazon are both well positioned to address the home-services market. The question is whether there’s a multitude of players. The obvious answer is yes. It’s a huge marketplace.”

But Doshi is skeptical about Google’s ability to win this battle: “Google has always had issues on the local side, and Amazon is coming at this market with a unique value proposition (high quality and guaranteed price).”

Both Google and Amazon are entering a crowded marketplace, competing with well-funded and established start-ups: “We think Home Advisor, Thumbtack, TalkLocal or some of the other unique start-ups could be in a position to take share,” said Doshi.

 Six-year-old Thumbtack is building a war chest to fight the rising competition, and CEO Marco Zappacosta says growth is strong. His biggest challenge is keeping up with demand: “We’re actually supply constrained; we have more demand than we can fulfill.” The company announced on Tuesday that it had raised $125 million at a valuation of $1.3 billion from investors that included Baillie Gifford, Tiger Global, Sequoia Capital and Google Capital.

With HomeLane, upgrade house to your dream home

So, are you planning to transform your house into your dream home? And for that you need to call carpenter 100 times a day and further rely on the interior designers. Veteran entrepreneur Srikanth Iyer and four of his friends went through the same hassle of dealing with carpenters, suppliers and interior designers to get their home furnished which ended up in giving them a harrowing experience. Together with his friends, he chalked out a way to simplify the process, cut down costs and provide with an efficient and specialized interiors solution to home-builders by establishing his own venture– ‘HomeLane’.

“Dealing with this completely unorganized market was very troublesome for me and that’s where I saw a scope to organize a segment, which was completely chaotic and it comprised carpenters and brick-and-mortar furniture stores which is hugely labour-intensive, with overall delivery and quality standards being poor, and timelines were hardly met in most cases. That’s how the idea to start-up HomeLane kicked in,” said Srikanth Iyer, Co-founder, HomeLane.

HomeLane is an organized tech-based solution for semi-furnishing market in India. Following a hybrid model, a startup guarantees home owners, asset-light furnishing solutions which rely on technology and lean manufacturing with customizable, home setup solutions including kitchens, wardrobes and entertainment units.

 Being a team of over 200 employees, startup enables its customers to choose the designs, fixtures and customized fittings online, which are delivered by HomeLane’s operations team. It further offers its customers an industry-first 45-day delivery guarantee. Further, HomeLane has recently launched a VR-based device called Kaleido which enables users to envision different looks for kitchens, bedrooms and living rooms in real time, thus helping them make an informed home decor choice.

Currently operating in Bengaluru, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Kochi, the startup aims to expand to other metros and to tier II and III cities shortly. The venture aims to become one-stop solution for all home-furnishing needs and design consultation. “While our core business will be to offer customized fixed furnishings, because of the huge demand in the market we have also ventured into additional home design services like furniture, lightings and more. However, we don’t provide home to these additional services as a stand-alone offering,” said Iyer.

Currently, closing orders worth $1million a month, the startup expects it to grow to $5 million in the next six months.

In conversation with Entrepreneur India, Iyer talks about his entrepreneurial journey and what are his plans for the future growth.

Specify your professional background and how it helped in your venture?

Previous to HomeLane, I founded two startups in the ed-tech space, Edurite and Diksha Technologies. Later, TutorVista acquired Edurite and I joined TutorVista as its CEO. When Pearson made its foray into India, they acquired TutorVista and I joined Pearson as their India CEO.

However, I thrive on being a startup person as I have been an entrepreneur for most of my professional journey; hence, the decision to structure a startup was not difficult but the obvious choice.

What challenges did you face while taking your product to the market?

With HomeLane, we wanted to make home furnishing a seamless and enjoyable experience. The whole concept of furnishing homes with complete transparency and more importantly in a timely manner with quality products and quality service was a welcome change for new homeowners. Consequently, we found great market acceptance right from the start.

Other companies dealing in your space are acquiring certain apps or a venture. Do elaborate on that as well.

In June this year, we launched our tech-based VR offering, HomeLaneKaleido, which is a décor-envisioning tool. The Kaleido is an important part of HomeLane’s ‘showroom in a box’ philosophy. By using this, Google Cardboard powered immersive device along with other tools, the company is trying to bring the emporium to the buyer’s doorstep; thus bridging the gap between imagination and reality.

At HomeLane, we are making constant endeavors to strengthen our home visualization offerings and to take another step forward in this direction. We recently acquired a virtual home-décor platform Doowup, a tech-start-up and its expertise lies in defining the future of retail consumer experience through disruptive visualization technology.

This acquisition, therefore, will significantly boost HomeLane’s technology play for life-like home illustrations. This is definitely a step further to HomeLane’s fundamental goal to make dream home furnishing an enjoyably simple and time-efficient experience for all new homebuyers.

Do you think acquisition is one of the fastest ways to scale operations?

I believe acquisitions are good only when they are done to further the strategic objectives of the business. One must ensure the two companies complement each other’s capabilities and also find a great cultural fit in each other.

How HomeLane is different from other companies catering in the same sector?

At HomeLane, we are solving the interior design problem with technology. We promise transparency, timeliness and quality execution and we stand by it. Most middle-class customers cannot afford to hire a bonafide interior designer for furnishing their homes. HomeLane is bringing access to interior designers to this segment for the first time.

A customer will choose HomeLane to get a high-quality modular kitchen, a wardrobe, an entertainment wall unit (or any other fixed furniture) designed, made and installed at her home within 45 days of ordering. If the delivery is not made in 45 days, HomeLane would pay the rent.

Sector Overview

If we look at the figures, organized tech-based solution for semi-furnishing market in India is pegged to be close to $10 billion in market size in 2015. Sensing the opportunity, startups like LivSapce, Urbanladder, FabFurnish, PepperFry and many more have started entering into this space.

How To Be Sure You Have A Secured Storage Unit

The safety of the storage unit you choose is always a really important thing that you do have to think about. As time passes it is so easy to end up with so many items that you simply do not have space for. As you run out of home storage space, renting some extra space in storage facilities is something that has to be considered. However, not all the units are secure. Your goal is to locate a highly secured storage facility located in Chatsworth California or as close as possible to where you live. In order to do just that, make sure that you always focus on the following aspects.

Image result for How To Be Sure You Have A Secured Storage Unit

Unit Climate Control

Climate controlled units are highly important because of several reasons. When you are looking at space that is not protected from the weather, your items may end up getting ruined. The property you own needs to be completely safe, without the weather being a factor to consider.

Updated Security Features

When you think about what storage unit to consider, you want to think about the security offered and the service provider will always give you access to a list of everything included. If the facility features something that is highly updated like motion sensors or automatic locks, you can be sure you are faced with something that is beneficial for you. Alarms have to be wired to the individual units though. This is a separate security feature you should always consider. If you do not have something like this nobody in the security staff is going to be aware of the fact that your unit was broken into.

Opt For Higher Than First Floor

It is a good idea to go for the storage facilities that have multiple floors. As this is present choose at least the second floor. This will protect from flooding and the location is generally safer because of the fact that burglars will normally consider the units that are the closest to the exit points.

Locking Down Rates

The secure storage facility can often offer an introductory rate that is absurdly low. As an example, you can be offered the very first month for just around one dollar. That dollar eventually goes up to the amount that is advertised. As you are looking at the various storage facilities that are considered, see what rate is offered for you. It is important to get all this in writing. This will offer an extra security few people take into account, the security that you will not be taken advantage of.


What is very important is to be patient and compare various different storage facilities available close to your property. See what is offered and only choose one that can guarantee the safety of all the items you store. If you have special items that require specific storage conditions, be sure you will find something that will offer exactly what you need. Even if you have to drive for a longer distance, it is still a lot better than something that is not secured.

How Can You Find Great Self-Storage Units?

Whenever you decide to trust a company with your possessions, weather business or personal, it is important to be 100% sure you deal with someone that is secure, reliable and trustworthy. If you think about putting different important items in self-storage, be sure that you think about the following facts. You surely want to deal with the very best Houston TX Storage units and in order to find them, focus on the following.

Image result for How Can You Find Great Self-Storage Units?


This is by far one of the most important things that have to be taken into account. Generally speaking, the best solution is to ask around but you can also use the internet in order to make a really good decision. Online reviews help so much more than what you are tempted to believe at the moment. They basically tell you exactly how companies treat their clients, which is what you are interested in at all times.


You will want to have absolutely all your items as secure as possible, no matter the time of day or night. Do ask about the included security features and generally speaking, it is a very good idea to use CCTV. Also, on-site security has been proven as being highly helpful. In many cases burglars will target the self-storage units that are not offering much security. Do be sure you never add your belongings somewhere that does not have tremendous security.


This is a really important factor you need to always have in the back of your mind since you would not want to spend days on the road to get to the self-storage unit. For instance, if you are going to access the storage facility several times per week, you want to focus on an option that is as close to you as possible. If not, you can have the facility farther away.


Obviously, you will want to think about how much money you are going to spend on the services that are offered. When storing belongings for long periods of time, costs become increasingly important. As with everything in life, be sure that you do not mainly focus on the cheap option. This would be a huge mistake. You want to be sure you are offered high quality and that all the other factors are properly taken into account. Only then can you be sure prices are fair.

Storage Size

You will always want to think about size. There is nothing worse than thinking you can add a specific number of items and not having the size for that to happen. Also, if the storage space is a lot more than what you need, money will be wasted. Be sure you properly understand how much space is necessary and never go for something that is not of a suitable size.


As you can see, there are many factors that are important and that you have to take into account. Do be sure that you never neglect every single one that was highlighted above. If you do that, you would be faced with some pretty huge problems. Consider all options so that you can make the very best choices.

Three Tactics to Control a Mosquito Problem

If you have a mosquito problem in your yard, the first step in solving the problem is understanding that the best you can do is control the insect problem. Because the insects are outdoors, you can never destroy all of them. However, there are certain steps you can take to keep most of the mosquitoes at bay, and your mosquito population at low levels. The following are three of these ideas.

Image result for Three Tactics to Control a Mosquito Problem

Spray your bushes to kill mosquitoes
This is an obvious strategy, but you need to find a pesticide that will not hurt your pets. Other than this, the most important thing to know is when and where to spray it for maximum effectiveness. Mosquitoes are most active at night, so it is best to spray your bushes in the mornings. You should also make sure the pesticide is sprayed on the undersides of the leaves as this is where the insects are likely to be during the daytime hours. A periodic spraying can be done to help prevent the mosquitoes from living in your yard, but this spraying is not likely to be as comprehensive as the initial spraying to kill the insects. Follow the recommendations of the manufacturer.

Eliminate all unnecessary standing water
This is where females will lay their eggs on your property, so you want to inspect every inch of both your front yard and back yard areas. This type of water can come from watering your lawn and shrubbery, or just as common, it can be from a rainstorm. Once you have removed all of this water, it is only a matter of doing an inspection after it rains, or paying attention to where extra water has gathered after you have watered your lawn and plants.

Use mosquito traps
Once all of the extra water is gone, there will not be many place left that are attractive to mosquitoes, but they will still be visiting your property. It is for this reason that you need to add mosquito traps to your repertoire of anti-mosquito tools. This type of trap uses water to attract females to lay eggs, but a small tablet of pesticide is dissolved in the water to make it deadly. They’re effective, and if you have eliminated all of your standing water, they become more attractive to females. Therefore they are even more effective.

As bad mosquitoes can be for a homeowner, they can be controlled with a the right strategy and the right mosquito control products. You can start your plan of action today.

Divorce And Property Divisions

Divorces mean that courts have to make a correct division of what is labeled as “marital property”. This is not connected to marital misconduct. Courts have to basically split marital properties in an equal way and it is true that most of the courts are going to do this. We cannot consider adultery, domestic abuse or other marital misconducts when dividing properties. A good Salt Lake divorce attorney will be necessary in order to guarantee a proper property division. This includes the following.

Image result for Divorce And Property Divisions

Properties – Marital Or Not?

Marital property is basically personal property and real property. The personal property is including benefits associated with pension plans. No matter what the title is, properties that are acquired by both spouses during the time of the marriage is seen as marital property.

It is possible for the parties to keep non-marital properties. This includes all personal and real properties that were acquired before the marriage started. Things can be excluded through prenuptial contracts or when gained as gifts, inheritance, devise or bequest. Non-marital properties are not going to be included in the division process. When you owned property before the marriage, the court will simply let you keep that as it is completely yours.

When you gain property during the marriage, we talk about marital properties. Spouses can claim items that are non-marital in so many cases. However, in this case it is really important to prove that the property is not actually non-marital. Intent is analyzed here. For instance, if inheritance will be deposited in a joint checking account, intent appears and the inheritance becomes marital property.

Property Considerations In Other Divisions

Many things should be noted as extras. For starters, when dividing properties it is possible that courts decide to sell some of the property when assets should be preserved. For instance, if both parties cannot afford paying the home value of the other individual, courts decide that home has to be sold.

Secondly, courts will analyze to see if one of the spouses tried to get rid of marital property after the divorce procedure started. When you intend to file for a divorce you may be tempted to open individual bank accounts and use marital funds. Marital property may be removed before the divorce is filed. In this case we see actions that are going to be considered when dividing the property.

The last thing we should highlight is that when we have non-marital property that increases in value we can be faced with that increase to be marital property if the appreciation appeared because of marital efforts or the use of marital funds. As an example, let us say that just one of the spouses owns a home. If the home is remodeled with joint funds, the value increase is considered to be marital property. Joint actions are going to take this into account at all times.


As you can see, property division can be quite difficult to deal with. Courts will do all that is possible but you can be sure the other party will try to find proof something is not correct. Just get a divorce attorney to help you out.
