  4. My own experience with DAA was pretty good in the way that it increased my mood and my libido. Whether it did much for improving progress in the strength and muscle growth department is difficult to tell objectively from the personal perspective. Anyway, there have been a number of publications suggesting that DAA actually works:

    "The role and molecular mechanism of D-aspartic acid in the release and synthesis of LH and testosterone in humans and rat"
    http://www.rbej.com/content/7/1/120
    [In this publication, there are results for human subjects. These are shown in table 1 and even though not to a spectacular degree they actually showed an increase in LH and testosterone.]

    "Involvement of D-aspartic acid in the synthesis of testosterone in rat testes"
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8699926

    "Occurrence of D-aspartic acid and N-methyl-D-aspartic acid in rat neuroendocrine tissues and their role in the modulation of luteinizing hormone and growth hormone release"
    http://www.fasebj.org/content/14/5/699.long


    Now a new study came out that says DAA doesn't do anything for changing body composition, strength and serum hormones associated with the hypothalamo-pituitary-gonadal axis (e.g. testoterone):

    "d-Aspartic acid supplementation combined with 28 days of heavy resistance training has no effect on body composition, muscle strength, and serum hormones associated with the hypothalamo-pituitary-gonadal axis in resistance-trained men"
    http://www.sciencedirect.com/science...71531713001735

    I am not surprised that there were no significant changes between the placebo group and the DAA group in the areas body composition and strength because 28 days isn't really a long time for showing small differences in progress, especially when resistance-trained men are analyzed and not weight-training newbies. However, I am surprised that they could not reproduce the results for the hormonal changes, which were shown previously. OK, the time points for the analyses were different but I wouldn't expect any DAA effect on hormone levels - if there is any - to recede that quickly. So, I guess it's up to you now to believe one or the other study. Or you could do your own blood tests.

  5. Even if DAA doesn't do anything for body composition, strength or hormonal levels, you may still hope that you are doing something good for your sperm. ;-)

    I disagrees. I am 46 and have altered my body tremendously with the help of DAA. I really don't care what the studies say. It works for me and many, many others. Too bad it does nothing for you.

    DAA is finicky, the best thing to do is shell out 20 something dollars and try it. If it doesn't work move on, if it does great I would deff go bulk sodium DAA (SNS) or go with Dpol, which is also sodium DAA

    Mr Cooper takes 6g of DAA for studying and speaks very highly of the noticeable increase

    I didn't say it did nothing for me. Haven't you read my post above? I just quoted this newer study that says it doesn't do anything - along with other studies on DAA that suggest it does work. My own experience with DAA is quite positive although I think it's difficult to tell whether it did something for me in the gym. Again, I don't wanna say it didn't, just difficult to tell. Anyway, I definitely did feel it.

    I guess it may depend on what your baseline hormonal levels are. With higher baseline levels, it may not change hormonal levels significantly as was found in the last study.

    I took your post the wrong way. Sorry about that.

    "We do not know the exact molecular mechanism by which this phenomenon occurs, but we strongly hypothesize that this events is due to action of D-aspartate in inducing elevation of testosterone in the testis, which locally is involved in improving the spermatogenesis and in maturation of male gametes."

    Really??? I never heard anything about this use for DAA. I have some bulk sodium DAA and it's a cheap supp so wouldn't mind screwing around a bit with it. Are you supposed to be able to feel it from a single dose or is it a cumulative thing? I am going to do some Googling, but any links to threads or webpages with info about that would be much appreciated .

    Best,
    Tyler

  15. I know about it cuz Cooper made some post about taking it with glycine and agmatine here and because neuron put it in like the top tier of his nootropics stack hierarchy on bb.com. It's cheap as chit too

    Sounds awesome! If you have any more info or links for me, please post here of PM me. I couldn't find much via google and this sounds really interesting. Thanks!

    I can always tell when someone is just being lazy and lying that they've searched. How? I just googled "D-aspartic acid learning" and found a ton of useful hits on page 1.

    I tried "DAA nootropic" "DAA nootropic anabolicminds" "D aspartic acid nootropic" and I think I tried "D aspartic acid nootropic anabolicminds" but I might have given up after the third one. However, I'll admit you have a point that I probably should have tried something broader and sifted through a few pages looking for specific nootropic information. Probably more stupid than lazy, though (but I wouldn't flat out lie about something like that). To be fair though I probably only gave it like 10 min. before giving up and hoping someone here knew where something specific was. Guess I got what I had coming
