    Sounds kind of scary to me. For one, Im afraid to lose my drive to inflict pain on myself under heavy weight. Seconed, Id just be afraid of changing the human mind like that. Ever see Serenity?


  2. Anyone experimented with DAA on cycle to keep natty test levels up?

This should have been taken to PM's. I'm not perfect; nor would I ever presume to be.

    I enjoy a good intellectual debate. This is one reason why I love it here on AM. My apologies to all (including henry) for losing my cool and displaying insult when it wasn't called for or warranted.

    I'm very passionate about science and my career. I think difference of opinion is good, but it bothers me when theory is presented as fact with clinical research/findings; because much of my career has been involved in that aspect of medicine. We all learn something new everyday, so hopefully now this thread gets back on track.

    this is very very interesting!

    Ya, if this theory holds up, I wonder how it would affect human life. Certainly some good things would come out of it, but I can also imagine some bad things.

    I didn't see it, no. I was planning too because the trailer looked cool, but never got around to it.

    It's not something that steals your mind without you knowing it, it's not insidious like that. It won't make you a zombie who can't feel pain. In fact, that may be why it can cause mild anxiety-like effects at higher doses, because you're actually more attune with external stimuli.

    It affects long-term potentiation, so more of a slow reinforcement effect. You are aware of the change in mentality as it's happening. The only way it could go sci-fi on you is if you're maybe living in a strange environment or engaging in some abnormal behavior, and then try to go back to normal. Here's a good overview of how memory get's encoded:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long-term_potentiation

    Basically, if you're going through something bad like a divorce or traumatic event, it might make you feel emotionally worse to take DAA. However, when NMDA inhibitors (the opposite effect of DAA) are given to animals, they are less likely to survive stressful challenges. So taking DAA during hard times could promote survival behaviors, whether it "feels good" or not.

    If your life is good and running along smooth, taking DAA can theoretically help you learn and remember what you learned better. If you're trying to learn something new that requires spatial memory, it could help a lot!

    No, but it might help from the studies I've seen.

    Agree with the bold since DAA acts a dopamine agonists, and since taking DAA, learning has been much easier...

    so if im feeling a bit anxious and depressed over a break up, it could be good and bad at the same time?? i was thinking the test increase would help these issues now im wondering if i wait a bit longer befroe i take this

    I think whenever you deal with a product that has the potential to give that sort of issue, being aware of it is half the battle. So you could start using it, and if things start to feel worse mentally, drop the product for a few days and see how you feel.

    Or even a pulse?...I'm curious too.

    When I went from 3 to 6 gms/day my libido went down within 2 days. I reverted back and libido returned.

    Well said Trauma.

    hmmm thats something to note....

  16. Ive been on 6 g's a day of testforce for 2 weeks now and libido has been normal to great. no drop off at all. everyone is different so take what you read with a grain of salt.

I've never felt that the 40 percent test rise would do anything at all as far as strength/muscle building. I also believe that the effects on libido level off fairly quickly. Its been out long enough to form some opinions. Where are the posts that state that it actually did something? They are all vague. If this was a keeper we would know it by now. I am not a negative guy and I love my supplements so if I am wrong, somebody show me.
    A good point. Has anyone useing the 12 day on/ 12 day off protocol noticed any noticeable results? Im acne sensitive, so if I got a 100gm tub of this stuff, got increased acne, and didn't even notice the results, I would be a little angry.

    I know that it makes you horny, but Im more concened with muscle strength/maby a little fat loss.

  18. well maybe 3 grams for me is too much because 3 grams daily killed my libido and I am still trying to recover.

    thanks for posting this. Often, people don't bother to let anyone know that a supplement gave them diareah and they couldn't leave the hose for a week. People just move on from supps, and never post back.

    Do you think you may have been a high testosterone person? I have a theory that if a person in the upper range of test takes this stuff, their test might get so high that it DOSE become an estrogen issue. Still in theory mode though...

  20. i think maybe Dr.Ds explanation is applyable in that situation, 3g may be just too high of a dose.

  21. i do not no if I was already high or not. right now I am 7 days into testopro and stoked and my libido is finally returning back to normal. DAA killed my libido the same way as novedex xt. i may try it someday again but at a much lower dose say 1.5 grams

  22. Which product did you use?

  23. the first 4 weeks I ran the DAAPURE (which I think was the best one I used) then the e-pharm brand which was not nearly as strong in my opinion, then nutra bulk powder (it was good) then back to DAAPURE. I switched from DAAPURE because it gave me alot of anxiety but the muscle fullness and strength was amazing. the e-pharm brand not as much kick for me but no anxiety at all (during this time my libido went to zero). the bulk was definately stronger then e-pharm brand. I finished cycle with DAAPURE at which strength and fullness came back within 3-4 days along with the anxiety.

  24. Been away but good to see these recent posts. Before starting NP's bulk DAA I had just been running 6-bromo which kept the libido raging. About 3 days into DAA is noticed a sizeable dip in libido. I chalked it down to stress/sleep deprivation, but know knows. Was taking 3g/day. I've taken 6 days off, libido is just about back to preDAA level and will restart at half the dose. Yohimbine barely phases me, but this seems to have quite an effect; definitely noticed an increase in oil.

    I actually agree I was more a fan of Nutra bulk of Epharms oddly enough. DAA is one of my favorite supps. I even got a kilo

    I wouldn't know anything about that.......

  28. if you think you might have too much DAA sitting around... feel free to give me some... i wouldn't mind helping you out... lol

  29. Why was the original research done with sodium d-aspartate? I would think that attaching sodium would be extra work.
