Okay so I looked over the article very quickly but this is what I am taking away from it so far..
The toxicity is coming from N-Methyl-D-Aspartate..
N-Methyl-D-Aspartate has a pretty great potential to overstimulate the NMDA receptor but it isn't exactly toxic because it is currently present within your body already. The problem seems to be when you have TOO much.. but how much is too much? I dunno
What the problem is seems to be the influx of calcium ions that are allowed into the cells which produce enzymes that may damage the cells
Now how is this revelant to DAA?
Well first DAA breaks down n-Methyl-D-Aspartate via NMDA Synthetase. Also to note the test boost isnt directly a result from DAA but from the n-Methyl-D-Aspartate. So in order for DAA to be effective it needs to convert to the n-Methyl-D-Aspartate which is what is considered to be dangerous in high amounts
I think the key words here are high amounts.. The questions I would like to ask supplement companies would be
First are there any amounts of n-Methyl-D-Aspartate mixed in with your DAA?
How much n-Methyl-D-Aspartate can be expected to be produced after taking "X" amount of DAA?
I would like to see some studies that would show..
How much was the calcium influx after taxing "X" amount of DAA?
How much calcium influx can occur safely without damaging the cells?
So the take away is DAA converts to n-Methyl-D-Aspartate which in turn stimulates the test production but too much n-Methyl-D-Aspartate can be toxic.
Again key word I think is too much because honestly too much of ANYTHING can be toxic. I dont think the focus should be on the fact that DAA is toxic it should be to establish some kind of threshold for it, a level that may be safe. But again EVERYTHING has the potential to be toxic to the body
This is what I got from it so far but since I have DAA I think ima hold off and do some more research on the subject and see what turns up. I will post up whatever I find as I find it and let me say this is just MY thoughts based off what I read. I am not a scientist and can be totally wrong and someone more versed in the field can probably answer and explain waaaay more better than me. I would email companies and ask for them to provide the studies they are baseing their products performance off of and then go though them studies for yourself.

No one is doubting the positive effect from it because NMDA DOES boost test production, the question is the health risk
That reminds me trauma is now a rep for Athletix and they are about to release a new DAA product so I am sure he can chime in and break it all down way better then me and from my experience (and prolly most of everyone elses too) trauma has always been a good stand up guy so I would like to hear his input on it. I will prolly wait to see if he does a product write up on adamantium and see what he says about DAA

Judo, good response!
Do me a favor and post that here so more people can be aware of this. D Aspartic Acid & Negative side effects
I doubt any rep will bad mouth DAA... I never felt anything negative and I also had bloods done that showed all good. These negative sides won't show up on a blood test and you won't "feel" them.

The questions I would like to see answered would be:
What is the ratio of NMDA to DAA that will be produced. Like if I ingest 3g worth of DAA orally how much NMDA could I expect to be converted from that DAA?
What is the minimum amount of NMDA needed to stimulate the hypothalamus-pituitary and testis to produce hormones?
What is the maximum amount of NMDA that can be present safely?
What is the influx of calcium after x amount of DAA orally?
And if exercise would effect that calcium ion influx?
Until I see or figure out those answers I may be a little hesitant with DAA also now.
Thanks for bringing this all up guys by the way

Thanks JJ, I'll also will hold off on taking it until more info surfaces.
Hey smallfry, AX has a couple of products with DAA in it, see if you can find out anything from them. I'm banned there so I can't do it, lol.
And let's bump up that rep power a bit.

So how this for a coincidence..
there is a site I check daily it is sort of like a Woot but for supplements, anyway each day they have a new featured product for cheap.. Well guess what today's product was...... DAA.

Training UPDATE Chest day all dumbbells
Flat Dumb bell bench
125-6 fail on 7th thru that **** and screamed "gang member!!" At the time i was the only white dude in the gym I thought it was funny....
95-8 drop 80-4
Incline db fly
20 min cardio (internals) sprints 8.5-10mph till heart rate hit 167.
I also did 40 mins fasted cardio this morning. Incline walk kept the heart rate at around 135
Yesterday was a all cardio day did 1 hour of treadmill walking with a few sets of sprints.
I have gained some body fat back the last few days... Might be water retention from all the canned chicken. I need to invest in a scale because I have no ****ing clue what I weight lol
I'm aiming for another fasted morning cardio session but I'm super horny and ain't going to sleep till I get laid so I might not get the morning session in....
Fyi You guys are sexy bitches

Come on now, cut me some slack, I'm almost 46 years old and only been working out for 4 years. I can do 70lb. DB's on incline for 10, lol. I'll get there one day. Strength increase is SLOW when you get old.

hahaha you sell gas? F#CK you and your prices!!!
no i just realized i was driving too fast to get any kind of a normal gas mileage. Drove like 60-65 for an entire 12 gal tank and got 400 miles. 33 mpg cant really complain. now if only the gas stations could stop drilling me in the a$$ for more money every time I go, that would be great.
