    Glutamate is an NMDA agonist. Endogenous, that is

    Well. Caution is best, especially with something still relatively new and unknown; not debating that. In lieu of that: have either of you taken Trib? Always see relatively positive things about it and would like to give it a run just for the sake of seeing it's effects. And if it's effective, or you've found it to be, what are the dosages that show gains?

    I took DAA for 6 weeks. First 3 weeks @3g/day split up 3x/ day. Second 3 weeks @5g/day 2g/breakfast 2g/preworkout and 1g bf bed.
    Only positive things to say about DAA, king in bed, crazy aggression, gains in stength and size, and lost alot of fat off the stomach.
    I had to watch my temper around my wife, I tended to snap more than often, and had to remind mysef that I was the "aggressive" one. Being an animal in bed balanced it all out!

    Granted you only need 3 grams DAA per day, those are some great results.

    Brand: Trec
    Dosing: Yes, I upped the dosage bc after the first 3 weeks I wasn't getting the same feeling, everybody's body is not the same. After upping it from 3 to 5, it just seemed right.
    Weight: I lost fat from my abs, but I didn't lose weight. I also ate alot healthier than usual and cut out all sweets and alcohol during the 6 weeks.
    Healthier diet, no alcohol, DAA, dedicated training so I assume they all contributed equally to the desired result.
    I am currently 3 weeks into an 8 week run of Activate Xtreme/Triazole stack, and getting great results and plan on adding DAA the last 4 weeks. Again, healthy diet, and no alcohol for max results.

    Activate and Triazole kicked my ass (especially w/ DAA), it felt like an Hdrol cycle for me. Even kept me up at night in between crazy REM dreams. I had to start taking melatonin. It was my first test booster so maybe had something to do with it. Best natty stack I've ever tried out of about 10 diff stacks.

    Virtually every supplement has some sort of side effect e.g. A.I.'s tend to flare up joint pain as they dry you out while increasing testosterone.

    Even something as beneficial for overall health like fish oil acts as a blood thinner,which can cause problems for some users.All choices that one makes when considering supplements have to be careful,it all comes down to looking over the risk/benefit factor.

    That said,DAA is pretty safe at the dosage used in the well known study that showed more than a %50 increase in test in men.The caveat being that one should not use DAA for extended periods of time to minimize the risk of the side effect that you're concerned with.

    Running DAA at 3 grams a day for 4-6 weeks is pretty damn safe,I'd say. The issue with NDMA receptors is merely one of over stimulation so if you don't use over the studied amount for months on end,no worries.

    I haven't been around the boards much lately so I'm unaware of any other test booster with a better safety profile than DAA.Even so,I doubt such a product is available.

    I will however add that I have been using Andro Factory's Focus for the past 3 weeks and change and I'm loving it.I'd say that any risk with a decline in cognitive processing via DAA would be negated by running Focus along with DAA.It'd make for a potent stack to increase testosterone and mental acuity without a need for post cycle therapy.

    .
    i find that old wives tale pretty silly. Yes AIs are medically associated with joint and muscle pains (they call it arthalgia) however there is no evidence that its due to "drying out". We arent the tin man from the wizard of oz, our bodies have plenty of fluids normally even if estrogen is blocked

    more likely this is due to estrogens role in inflammatory processes

    I fully agree.

    I was speaking in broad terms so thanks for clarifying my comment,Patrick.

    It was also my n=1 take on AI's.Even the most minute amount of an AI ,like a cap of 6-OXO or a capsule of Activate Extreme) will wreck havoc on my joints within a day of dosing.I have the same issue with compounds that lower cortisol;a single cap of Lean Exreme has made my joints feel snap,crackle and pop ala Rice Krispies.That said,I do have worn joints from years of abuse;manual labor coupled with weight training so my n=1 isn;t comparable to say,an athlete in his 20's with healthier joints.

    Doesnt stand true for everyone because blood work for me has shown that it increases test. I have used it off and on for over a year and I have yet to have one blood pull showing where it did not increase my levels.

    Further, my overall strength is always better while using daa, erase, activate and green mag vs using them without daa.

    I cannot think myself into higher levels on bloodwork from 3 different facilities.

    Its perfectly safe to take DAA for short periods of time with any potential negative outcomes, or the necessity of any precautionary measures
