    Sorry... what did you say?

    I couldn't read past the stupid ass usage of the term lulz.

    True. And this board a lot of times calls out those who are pushing the science with "I don't care what the science says" type responses. At the same time some of the most popular supplements on these boards have little to no scientific backing behind them (maybe a mouse study or something).

    Broscience is sadly kind on the vast majority of health and fitness boards.

  3. I hope I don't sound ignorant but oh well. Broscience is what I go by. Majority of the "supplements" we take is not going to have real scientific studies to back it up. Scientific studies don't mean much to me anyway, I'm not a scientist so I don't understand half the crap their talking about. Plus people can make a study say what they want it to based on agenda so what good are they? I want real life people "bros" telling me what they experienced taking a product. How it affected them, what sides, if it worked. Broscience is the tried and true method, thats real life scientific studies boys.

    I think you're referring to anecdotal evidence as broscience. Anecdotal evidence is the bottom line. If there are 50 studies outlining how a substance has x effect, but 100% of people say it doesn't, it's worthless.

    Broscience, on the other hand, is where people attempt to use science or scientific terms to make a statement, good or bad, about a product or substance but aren't applying the scientific method correctly.

    If everyone on these boards told you that d-alpha supplement of the week had no research to back it up, but I told you that it took my bench press up 20 lbs, that's anecdotal evidence, not broscience.

    If I tell you that creatine works by bumping up your testoserone levels with ammonia, quarks and quantum muscle fiber enhancers, that's bro science.

  5. The anecdotal stuff means little to me. Lots of people claiming to love things that did not produce a different result than could be explained by proper training/dieting. Not to mention a lot of people are straight up dishonest. I keep seeing bloods posted about a test booster from someone secretly on TRT -- wtf?

  6. it is a rather safe supplement, William Llewellyn and I have been looking into it for quite some time.

    well then "broscience" is a word being misused in 90% of the cases on here if what you say is true.....these guys use "broscience" to bash any anecdotal evidence OR misuse of science, so people need to start using the word appropriately if what you posted is to be valid. and trust me, they will continue to use broscience as an answer every time you try to challenge their new super duper scientific study with your anecdotal evidence. I'm with rsnake, I'll take "broscience" aka anecdotal evidence every time.....well depending on if the person is trying to sell me something versus just giving me random advice

  9. ok new to this forum but I've taken DAA for 30 days and now pretty close to completing first bottle of NMDA. So i read this thread and am still confused. is it safe, not safe, toxic, not toxic? am i just better off taking DAA ? I'll tell you where Im leaning after reading all this; back to DAA.

  10. This should be good. Something akin to a group of 9 year olds discussing the intricacies of quantum physics while hopped up on candy.

    If you have tried both and one works better for you, I would go with that one

    Guffaw! Nearly did a spit take on the keyboard.

    I tend to side with Coop on this. You're not likely to achieve blood levels of DAA or NMDA that will be excitotoxic. Delving into anecdotal land, I think you'd crap yourself silly trying to mega dose DAA and if excitotoxic effects were happening, they would likely be evident with some sort of symptom...either physically expressed or a decline in mental function. DAA has been on the shelves for awhile now.

    I most certainly pay attention to the anecdotal since 99% of the supplements we use in this community are nowhere near what I would call "rigorously studied". We are simply too impatient to wait a lifetime until all the results are in..which is bad, but then the safety record of most supplements is pretty darn good.

    i wasn't responding to Patrick, which is why I didn't quote him. I was merely commenting on the effectiveness of NMDA, which is a large portion of what this thread is about.

First of all, I contacted the patent inventor to see if I could get some more information on NMDA. He regretfully told me that his later research failed to confirm his earlier findings, and that he had deemed the project not worthy of further pursuit. I also discovered that NMDA is potentially quite toxic and may destroy neurons in sensitive areas of the brain like the hippocampus and the basal ganglia. NMDA might also have the capacity to induce convulsions in susceptible individuals.

    but the whole piece is worth reading. Let me know what you guys think!
    I hear people talk about monosodium glutamate as an excitoxin too, yet people eat a chinabuffets and are fine

    Fun! Nah, it's a carcinogen, so don't put it in a pipe, but it won't kill you if you're using it for pyrotechnics. Is this for a class or just for fun?

    Not really, it was more so a discussion on possible toxicity from oral NMDA rather than the effectiveness but by all means plug away.

  25. Sorry to bump, was there a definitive conclusion about NMDA? Is it safe to take orally?

    when are you dosing, looks like a solid night time supplement, nmda is really good for sleep, with a small amount of agmatine before bed, should sleep like a baby

  29. ill be dosing 12pm, 5pm, 9pm id imagine, going to bed at 11pm, Im very sensitive to supps near bed time, i sleep awful so dont want to take it just before bed, but 2 hours before should be fien right?

    i know when i dealt with intimidate, people mentioned if they took nmda and didn't go straight to sleep that it sometimes affected their sleep

    with test boost i've been dosing at 5:30p.m., and at like 9 or 10pm i get really tired and have no problem falling asleep at 11pm

    right okay, may take my third dose as im climbing into bed.

    How come not earlier in the day? you want it to always be in your system so splitting up the doses so it spreads through the day is ideal

    could probably be used that way....my only two experiences were intimidate which was 1 cap and test boost which is a small scoop of powder, i never dosed them in the morning for fear of getting groggy at work, i can't have that

    I have 2 scoops of alphamine upon waking, no grogginess is touching me! haha

    having said that I may switch my dose to 5.30pm,7pm & before bed, for pre/post/bed timing

    Speaking only to the safety (not efficacy), I have not seen a single study that makes me believe that oral NMDA, taken as directed, should be unsafe.

  35. I have read some things showing it could effect depression. Not sure if that is "safe" or not but something to consider.

  36. Guys,

    can anyone please tell me when the best time to supplement NMDA is in conjunction with getting better sleep, if my doses are 1 cap 3 times a day?

    I wake at 8am and go to bed at 11pm, thanks
    @VaughnTrue

    also, regarding toxicity, I supplement agmatine with NMDA, is that okay? I dont take creatine

  37. 30mg, right before bed.
