    D Aspartic Acid & Negative side effects


    I've ran a few cycles of DAA some for 12 days some for 3 or 4 weeks. I've noted no noticeable negative side effect.

    HOWEVER, I keep seeing random posts in DAA topics about DAA causing harm to the nmda receptor? What's up with this I'm? I don't want to use anything That's gonna **** me up.

    Discussion please!!

    I saw a thread of DR. D claiming it was healthy for that receptor as long as you did not stimulate for long periods of time and that taking a break at no less than half the time on would help. Also something about this receptor helping animals survival modes. Search Dr d on DAA itl come up

    It's a very interesting read and DR.D is a genius, so I tend to feel pretty safe when taking daa.

    dr.d knows his daa!!!

    i also found a thread where dinoii says he read a study saying that aspartame at 5-6 grams daily for 24 weeks showed no signs of brain disorder. probably the closest to a clinical daa study you will find, imo.

    my advice, run it for short cycles of a month or less just to be cautious, with the same amount of off time before running again-this is for us guys who don't have bad reactions to it. if you have bad reactions to it you would be a fool to continue using.

    I read a lot on DAA and excitotoxicity. As DAA is new in the bodybuilding world everything I read was subjective.

    Quotes like this from some of the 'experts' in formula creation for a couple of the companies/company owners/scientists etc.

    "I don't think it will be a problem in high doses"
    "Take appropriate time off between cycles"

    I wasn't convinced because it was a hypothesis at best. What is a "high dose"? Some people reported serious psychological effects from taking it at recommended doses but others didn't.

    So, a high dose for one may not be a high dose for another. It makes sense that time on:time off ratios would be different for people as well when considering safety.

    This isn't like a PCT or hormonal cycle where you get a hormonal profile, liver, lipid etc to see if they are ready to run again. How are you going to assess any damage caused?

    People have been on DAA for much longer periods of time than the initial 12 day and reported "no ill effects" but again, this was based on how they felt.

    Just my thoughts on it.

    Don't have any comments on the science side of it.. But I took it for 12 days and had to stop.. Seriously affected my psyche. I will probably take it on my next PCT but only for 7-10 days.. At first the effects were tollerable but it got to be too much..

    Stuff is amazing. Only side effect is the runs for a few days after starting it. I get a huge boost in libido and also strength gains and fat loss.

    Those that are prone to anxiety or stress tend to experience the negative emotional effects when using DAA.

    Those of you that had bad experiences, did you alter the time of day you took it? Space out the doses? Try it with and without food, etc?

    To a point, but the cycle your running would be short - all you'd need to do is run some type of GH product to counteract that.

    Sounds like how I felt on 6-OXO (higher end of the dose range).

    Used TCF-1 during PCT and got some balls swelling and high libido but no increase in semen vol.

    I dosed it first thing in the morning before breakfast and i felt great! Better than a cup of coffee I'd say.

    Bought the SNS bulk caps for my upcoming cycle. We'll see how it compares

    I am not entirely convinced that is true. Well what i mean is that i am not saying these people dont feel that way but i think it could be that they worry that the stuff might make them feel that way and then its a self fullfiling prophecy (because they read all that scary stuff people post about it)

    i am subject to stress and anxiety and i never had any such problem with the stuff. i actually felt better. I know other similar folk with same result

    I havent seen evidence suggesting that such toxicity will happen with the oral daa. I have seen evidence suggesting it will not, such as a rat study and the aspartame study mentioned earlier in this thread

    FWIW with my line of work and night school I am too and DAA makes me feel nice and alpha, positive mood all day.
