D-Aspartic Acid Review

By Bryan Kernan author of Bodybuilding Supplement Secrets Revealed

DAA Supplement

D- Aspartic Acid (D-AA Supplement) is a regulator of amino acids in the body, particularly in the area of the synthesis of testosterone. D-AA may also have some effect on the stimulatory receptor NMDA.

D-AA is used as a supplement for the benefits of vascularity, strength and testosterone activity. This substance may play some role in aiding male fertility as well. Research has been conducted on this element and a study in 2009 in Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology found that "D-aspartic acid is a physiological amino acid occurring principally in the pituitary gland and testes and has a role in the regulation of the release and synthesis of LH and testosterone in humans and rats."

Research shows that this element does escalate testosterone – "after 12 days of D-Asp treatment, the levels of testosterone in the serum of the participants were significantly increased compared with basal levels. Out of 23 participants, 20 had increased testosterone". That’s an impressive result and makes D-AA a real consideration for inclusion in supplementation.

One concern with D-AA is that it may cause the user to fail drug tests for some organizations. And the studies on D-AA have been short term in nature – no long-term look at the effects, as well as potential side effects of long term use.

Some think that D-AA is best used for helping those with low testosterone levels. That is, D-AA is good at bringing the testosterone levels up for those who are low in testosterone, but doesn't push much more beyond that for those that want more testosterone production. So D-AA can pump up testosterone in the body but perhaps not to the levels that many bodybuilders want to see from a supplement.

My advice is that you try a much safer and legal alternative like Andro Shock.
