Any supps that have that in it?
Did you guys read about this on ergo-log? Three grams D-aspartic acid raises testosterone levels by a third
From what i can find searching on google it seems legit.
Any supps that have that in it?
wikipedia says its whats in the artificial sweeteners... sugar increases test! give me some oreos!
jk, but its an amino acid, i doubt any supplements have it in them. id try zinc before i tried this... i duno, might work
IBE/PHF Anabolic Trinity Epistane, Trenavar, and Ment - Available Now!
it's really really bad for you.
let me find a link.....
This is copy and pasted from another forum with a thread about it:
induced oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunctions in testis of prepubertal rats
Abstract Previously we demonstrated the potential of (d-Asp), an acidic amino acid to induce oxidative response in prepubertal rat testis in vitro. In the present study, we determined the extent of oxidative stress in the testis of prepubertal rats that were administered d-Asp (100 and 500 mg/kg bw/d, i.p. 7 days). d-Asp treatment significantly elevated the levels of reactive oxygen species, malondialdehyde and hydroperoxide in cytosol and mitochondria of testis, which were accompanied by levels, elevated activities of -dependent enzymes and catalase suggesting a state of oxidative stress. Further, the activities of d-aspartate oxidase and 3β-hydroxy steroid dehydrogenase were elevated in the testis. The testis mitochondria of d-Asp-treated rats showed altered citric acid and complex enzyme activities, reduction in membrane potential, increased permeability and intracellular Ca2+ levels. Collectively, these findings suggest the potential of d-Asp to induce oxidative perturbations in the testis of prepubertal rats and this mechanism may in part be responsible for the observed physiological effects.
...so it might be bad, might not, but there doesn't seem to be any human studies.
The Truth is, there is no Truth.
It also increases prolactin...
Yeah it is not a good idea to take large amounts of aspartic acid. Asp Acid actually activates the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDA), which is a Glu receptor. The NMDA receptor is actually what is one of the problems in Alzheimer's disease. In Alzheimer's you have decreased cholinergic transmission and overexcited NMDA activation which causes something called excitotoxicity. I am not saying that you will develop Alzheimer's, that would be a bit naive , however, anything that causes excitotoxicity is not something worth using.
It is also a player in migraines and is a trigger for a large number of people.
Bottom line, removing the offending agent is of course the best thing to do.
two companies are soon releasing products with d-aspartic acid.
Muscle Warfare and anabolic xtreme.
The research is their. The issue is really how much. From what I read, it takes a much smaller amount then that to produce test increase. I believe muscle warefare goes over this in its write up.
Muscle warefare is using 75mg of N-Methyl-D-Aspartate
It is deemed 100 times more powerful at activating this receptor pathway than D-Aspartic Acid itself. Its effects are much similar to all of those listed for D-Aspartic Acid, yet highly more concentrated.
I don't like the thought of N-Methyl-DA either, but DAA looks alright. In fact, it's essential for healthy reproductive function in all mammals I've researched.
doing my own thang!
