What are your thoughts on this product, it looks promising.. and wondering how it matches up with a DAA blend..

Looks like a pretty standard 2010 test booster, most of them had divanil and resveratrol As key ingredients, 2011 is all about the daa. Not saying those are ineffective ingredients just not the fad at the moment.

In short - DAA much better ARA
Arachidonic acid (English abbr. ARA) - polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid 20:4 (ω-6), plays an important role in the human body. Arachidonic acid is an interchangeable fatty acid, that is, the body can synthesize its own. Arachidonic acid is subject to air oxidation, and therefore require special storage conditions.
In the body of arachidonic acid is part of the phospholipids (especially phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylcholine), which are the basis of cell membranes. The largest number found in the brain and muscles. In addition, arachidonic acid is involved in the transmission of cellular signals as an inflammatory mediator.
Arachidonic acid in foods
In the composition of fats arachidonic acid present in greatest quantity in the brain, as well as in liver, meat and dairy fat.
[Edit] arachidonic acid in bodybuilding
Arachidonic acid is essential for recovery and growth of skeletal muscles. Relatively recently, Mike Roberts of Baylor University conducted a study and later published in the International Society of Sports Nutrition article "Arachidonic Acid, The New Mass Builder explaining the role of this nutrient in muscle anabolism, and its potential for the enhancement of muscle size and strength" .
Mike Roberts said that the main reason for muscle growth, it is a local inflammation of muscle tissue that occurs as a result of mikrotravmirovaniya resulting from exercise. This theory is now joined by many scientists. Roberts has shown in a study that arachidonic acid is found in large quantities in muscle tissue and is a source for the synthesis of prostaglandins, which cause local inflammation. In addition, the isomer of prostaglandin PGF2a has the ability to stimulate muscle growth. Arachidonic acid - a local regulator of muscle inflammation and it may be a key factor in the regulation of anabolic processes of muscle in response to strength training.
The cycle of arachidonic acid:
The cycle of arachidonic acid
As a result of physical exercise activates phospholipase A2 (or cPLA2 - an enzyme intramuskulyarny).
cPLA2 provokes the release of arachidonic acid in the cytoplasm of muscle cells
Other intracellular enzymes - cyclooxygenase catalyzes arachidonic acid to form prostaglandins (PGE2, PGF2a), which extend from the cell and initiate a series of physiological responses (vasodilatation, increased blood circulation, inflammation, etc.)
Prostaglandins (especially PGF2a isomer) are associated with prostaglandin receptors of skeletal muscle cells and initsiruyut cascade reaction, which causes muscle growth.
Arachidonic acid and PGF2a increase the function of ribosomes in muscle cells by activating enzymes fosfoinozitol-3-kinase complex. In the ribosomes of cells synthesized new proteins that are supplied to the building of new muscle cells. 
Established that PGF2a has a similar effect with insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1), which has a pronounced anabolic effect.
Another important evidence that arachidonic acid is effective for increasing muscle mass was the study by Dr. Todd Trappe of Ball State University. He determined the level of protein synthesis in athletes who took drugs that inhibit the synthesis of prostaglandins (NSAID). As a result, the group did not take the drug protein synthesis increased by 76% and in group took NSAIDs protein synthesis remained at baseline. 
The proven effects of arachidonic acid:
Increased security indicators

[Edit] Dosage and receive mode
To increase the power performance and recruitment of muscle mass, arachidonic acid must be taken in doses of 500mg-1000mg per day. When buying sports supplements, pay attention to the dose, they often are not sufficient to produce the desired effect.
[Edit] Side effects and harm
Arachidonic acid is a natural product and is part of the conventional products. In studies it was shown that arachidonic acid is not harmful to health and has few side effects. In connection with the proinflammatory action, arachidonic acid can cause side effects such as increased muscle pain after training, joint pain, headache, but this happens very rarely.

D-aspartic acid (born D-Aspartic acid, or DAA) - endogenous amino acid that is present in the body of all vertebrates and invertebrates. D-aspartic acid plays an important role in the functioning and development of the nervous system. During the embryonic stages of development observed increase in the concentration of the substance in the brain and retina. D-aspartic acid is also a neurotransmitter that transmits nerve impulses from one neuron to another. In addition, D-aspartic acid increases the level of cyclic AMP in nerve cells and transported from the synaptic cleft of nerve cells by special carrier.
Recently it was found that this amino acid is involved in regulation of the endocrine system, they regulate the release of certain hormones. An important discovery in bodybuilding has been the property of D-aspartic acid interact with some segments of the hypothalamus, which leads to increased secretion of gonadotropin-releasing hormone, which in turn increases the production of gonadotropin, the latter helps to increase testosterone production - the main anabolic hormone. In addition, this amino acid enhances the secretion of prolactin and growth hormone. Also, scientists have found that D-aspartic acid is involved in the process of releasing testosterone and progesterone by the testes.
The first data on the ability to increase production of testosterone were obtained in rats, but has recently been used to study in humans, which confirmed the effectiveness of D-aspartic acid in humans.
A group of 23 people received daily 3 g of D-aspartate (DADAVIT ®) within 12 days, while the other 20 men received a placebo (dummy). As a result of the experiment were conducted tests that found that testosterone levels rose an average of 42%, the level of gonadotropin increased by 33% .
It should be noted that all these properties are characteristic only for the D isomer of aspartic acid, whereas all the protein and amino acids in the proposed sports stores contain L-shape. What's interesting is, L-form can be converted in the body in the D-form, but the additional consumption of L-forms does not increase the concentration of testosterone.
Also, researchers found that the concentration of D-aspartic acid in the brain gradually increases to age 35 years and then begins to decline. The same thing is observed with testosterone levels. 
D-aspartic acid caused a significant stir in the world of bodybuilding. Whereas in Ross's about it are just beginning to learn the West athletes are already actively using this supplement. The effectiveness of additives is confirmed by the reports of athletes (rising power rates, increased libido and other symptoms increase testosterone levels), some of them performed the analysis of testosterone levels before and after application. The data confirm the results of research - testosterone actually increases.
