I enjoy daa. You plan on using straight bulk daa? I'd recommend dpol, ormyself.
Normal dosing is 3 grams per day. 8 weeks on 4 off. Takes some time to kick in, so don't get frazzled it you don't feel it week 1.

Ye I was going to go the straight bulk d-aspartic acid but I'll look into the other two you mentioned..I've been taking Tribulus and definately noticed better sleep,libido and aggression in the gym...

Bulk DAA made me crap my brains out and stop taking it - no benefit.
Best bang for the buck is D-pol. I recommend the powdered version

Daa is a hit or miss with me, i used recourse just fine but test powder and form-x had my stomach churning all day long

RIP Prometheus Rising (my favorite daa product)
You might consider throwing in something like Nolvadren XT in with your bulk daa to enhance the effects. I typically stagger mine.
1-2 weeks - daa
3-8 weeks - daa + Nolvadren
9-10 weeks - Nolvadren

The P. major extract is great for exercise induced fatigue as well and can help buffer lactic acid formation for better workouts.

Go with d-pol - no GI issues, best results out there and a great price and I am not a company rep lol....

I've never experienced problems with bulk DAA. Test Powder and D-Pol would be two I'd check into if I ever did have issues with bulk DAA.

Just go with the bulk DAA powder, it works for me. 8 on 4 off, 3 grams a day preworkout.

daa is pretty useless as a standalone product or if your not using it for pct...it doesn't give any real gym results
the only time daa has added gym results is when combined with another test booster like tropinol xp, then you'll see some body comp changes and strength increases

I normally use a stack for DAA like Noxitest and Testradex with Trib and DHEA. However once I did try the bulk DAA and noticed the increase in bathroom visits as well. I never experimented to determine whether it was because I was taking a full dosage at once or if I should have tried spreading it out over the day.
I was also only taking DAA to help with a recomp as well.

I've been running PR-XT + Na DAA + forskolin and just added in Nolvadren XT for a recomp. Down about 0.5lbs since the start I think, but have lost .25" off my waist in the last week alone.

I unfortunately was a non responder with DAA as well. Well maybe I shouldn't say non responder as I responded with explosive diarahhea and headaches that were crippling at any dose. Alphamax, and any other test boosting product I've taken didn't do that to me.

I think there's been some conflicting evidence come out recently that DAA really only helps those individuals who have low test, but I haven't looked into these rumors at all yet.
Btw what I previously meant was that over the last two weeks I'm only down about 0.5lbs, but over the last week alone my waist had dropped 1/4". Didn't like the way I worded it once I reread it, but it was also like 2am from my bed. lol

Tropinoal and Intimidate is the stack that I am running and love it! That would be my recommendation.

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"
[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"
"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"
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"
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.

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. ;-)

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

Some people think its a good nootropic. That's what I'm taking it for. Got it free with that flashover deal..was going to put it in the traders thread until I read about it maybe being a cognitive booster

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.
