    DAA Effectiveness Debunked?


    Please google "Suppversity", the latest post on that website should be. (Sorry I can't link just yet)When Hype Meets Reality: D-Aspartic Acid Turns Out to Be Another Supplemental Nonstarter in First Human Trial With Any Relevance for Healthy Young Men

    Interesting read on a study done on DAA in normal testosterone range atheletes, showing no changes. I only just skimmed through it.

    I'm really surprised as this goes against all the anecdotal reports I've seen.

    I never felt any difference on DAA and I even did a blood test after one cycle and my test levels came back lower than it ever been

    Why it Sodium DAA used, or just DAA?

    Wow. Sorry to hear. I've gone down that road with other supplements. Don't give up. Train, eat, sleep, and then supplements. Battle of chemistry , sometimes.

    DAA would still be effective in a low test environment like PCT. Just not with normal hormone levels.

    I think it's just DAA, the brand is listed as Better Body Sports.

    I've always felt that this is where it shines the most. Low level environments.
    Expecting it to pack on tons of mass would obviously be a stretch.

    I'd also like to point out that though this study was very well done its still one study. I'd wait for a little reproducibility before saying the DAA sky is falling.

    I think from what one can take from the Willoughby study is that at a certain point, the body's mechanisms to maintain homeostasis kicks in and thus prevents increase in test above and beyond normal levels. It is however unclear from the Willoughby study if the body just doesn't produce actual test much past normal levels from DAA supplementation or if the body is producing the extra test but the extra test is being converted to estrogen (again, there's always that homeostasis element one needs to overcome). So if it is converting the extra above normal test into estrogen, maybe using an AI in conjunction will then yield the results one was going for when supplementing with DAA in the first place?

    I do recall a long long long ways back, there were some blood work floating around on forums where it was shown that DAA supplementation not only did not increase free test but it actually increased estrogen levels (indicating that DAA supplementation may actually have produced more free test but the caveat being the body took the free test and converted it to estrogen).

    Mind you, I'm not a scientist by any stretch of the imagination, so I can be missing something here :P For example, they mention DDO levels rose which I am guessing cancels out DDA at some point, but I'm still unclear how much of an impact that rise of DDO has on test production from DDA.
