So I doubt we learn much new info other than I am certain the loggers results should be superior to DAA.
    I agree. If you want to use it then use it. If your worried about the sides then don't use it. Sh!t I started this thread back in march, lol

    yeah I think it dropped down the page's pretty far, but I found it and bumped it back to the top a few days back, and then it was on again for another half dozen pages hahahaha!!!

    It's all good. I have no shame in bumping a thread back from the dead if the information is relative.

    but you are right, you still count it. thats why drug companies have placebo arms in their studies to account for these things
    I can just as easily say: "I can give people placebo and get a significantly higher proportion that will say DAA is making them anxious I bet". (In other words, neither of us has a clue). I personally tend to experience anxiety whenever something makes me feel unusual, as I did with DAA. It's just my body's way of saying "hang on, something might be wrong here". Once my system is used to whatever feels different, though, this tends to subside. So it might with DAA.

    I reduced my DAA to less than 0.5 g per day and I don't feel unusual, and I do seem to have some libido effect (higher). Everyone is different. A lot of dispute about whether GABA crosses the blood brain barrier. Rarely do I see anyone acknowledge it may be variable. It certainly crosses the barrier for me to some degree, and whatever part of the brain it might be, because GABA consistently helps me to go to sleep (and believe me, I've tried placebos in the form of things like chamomile and I wish they helped me sleep!).

  5. On dosage, I'm now taking about 0.5 g per day. I'm going to see how this goes because it doesn't seem to me there is a very strong rationale for 3 g per day. Some of the recommendations for Creatine seem to me ridiculously high. The research I've seen indicates that 2-3 g of Creatine has the same effect as the higher dosages (albeit the result may take a bit longer to achieve).

    Does anyone know of any rationale for ~ 3 g? (other than that they happened to use that much in the J. Reprod Biology and Endocrinology study)

    They had all of 23 guys in the 'treatment' group. Still, they got a fair F-ratio, assuming it's all legit, albeit more studies could easily contradict it still. However, for all we know, if they'd had three treatment groups with, say, 0.5 g, 1.5 g, 3 g, there may have been no difference between the 0.5 g and 3 g. No way of knowing, as far as I can see; 0.5 g more than usual could be quite a lot for all I know (and can tell from what I've read).

    I think I'll stick with ~ 500 mg per day for a while.

  6. I just spent about an hour reading all 25 pages of this thread.

    Now I'm more tired than I would be following a hard leg workout!

    It's cool that we have so many educated and well-informed members around here.

    Good job.

    u are correct in that the enzyme which makes it from l-aspartic acid is localized in specific parts of the body. Still though it circulates in plasma.

    when you ingest DAA it does go everywhere but it only collects in cells which have the mechansims to extract and sequester it

    The fact that cells are able to extract it from plasma seems to indicate that circulating DAA is a substantial contribution to target tissue storage

    i was given general anesthesia over the summer to remove a kidney stone and the anesthesiologist said he was putting something in the IV to relax me. It didnt relax me though it freaked me out. cuz it made me feel weird and then i thought i was gonna die or something. so i know what you say. perhaps the DAA is not anxiogenic at all (i dont think it is) but some people freak out cuz they are ultra sensitive to feeling "different"

    Yeah, when I had a colonoscopy and the anasthesia started kicking in, I freaked out for a moment feeling as though I was dying, then the sedative component kicked in and I was very calm ... next thing I know, I'm waking up. The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced this is what's going on for me. I actually felt pretty good at first after having 3 g of DAA, then it got a bit weird and I think some adrenaline kicked in. I'd almost forgotten that the first time I had Creatine, I felt "hyped" and on edge. I actually thought it contained ephedra, but that's illegal in Australia and it was a well known brand, so I doubt it (?). It was probably also an initial change to the body. If DAA acts throgh the hypothalamus to affect test and LH, then you're going to feel a bit different. I'm just very attuned to physiological/mental changes and I know a lot of peole are not so attuned (often I wish I wasn't). I think I'll go with 0.5 g and just look to nudge it up to 1 g and take it from there. No rule that says it has to be 3 g.

    Abstract

    In this study we demonstrate expression of the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor NR1 subunit in the rat neuromuscular junction of skeletal muscles of different functional types (extensor digitorum longus, soleus, and diaphragm muscles) using fluorescence immunocytochemistry. Electron microscopic immunocytochemistry has shown that the NR1 subunit is localized solely on the sarcolemma in the depths of the postsynaptic folds. These findings suggest participation of the glutamatergic signaling system in functioning of the adult mammalian neuromuscular junction.Muscle Nerve, 2011.

    This is EXACTLY what I suspect is happening in those reporting anxiety.

    mocking inane advice, or offering it? hopefully the former.

  15. I'm 24 and after all the people saying how good daa is I used a bottle of tcf1 3 grams per day for a month I noticed absolutley nothing no strength gains or muscle or libido ... If anything the only thing I got from daa was my left arm and bicep kept shaking muscle spasym.

    I won't use daa ever again and will stick to activate xtreme .

    D_
    Going to this post waaay back on p. 9 -- I can concur with the semen analysis, and I get this effect with around 0.5 g per day and within a very short time (making me wonder whether 3 g is really necessary for any effects that are to be seen). I also agree with the disposition you seem to express toward standard medical 'controlled experiments'; and I say this as someone with a fair bit of expertise in statistical analysis, much of which I consider rubbish. I can't say about results, I need to give that one a bit longer.

  17. I just got some of this. I took my first dose a few minutes ago. Hopefully I won't have any of the negative effects that are listed.

    What can we say? We are all the modern day Jesus. (Woman laughs) What? You think Mary gave birth to a human? (Kid laughs hysterically to the point of physical discomfort...Pointing at him with a fully extended right arm, turned hip, and index finger firmly flexed...) Shoosh child! Let me preach! Mary gave birth to anabolicminds, which later, spawned an abundance of reps, members, and some of the most intelligent humans on earth to bring....not bread and wine...but valuable information...(epic music slowly rises) So hear me when I say, damn it, people!

    and it was only for a whopping 12 days. no idea if effects get better, disappear, whatever after that.

  28. I need to look it up but I thought it was longer than 12 days... the increase stopped after 12 days.
