Supplement companies are touting D-Aspartic Acid (DAA) as the newest natural testosterone boosting supplement on the market. If you poke around (as I did) you'll find ecidence to support this claim, with a few caveats:
It does seem to boost test, but not by a whole lot. Still, every little bit counts, and can be especially beneficial to older lifers in tehir 40s and 50s.
To get the boost, you have to take a minimum of 3g a day. So if you're looking at DAA supps, check the dosage. Taking anything less than 3g a day is probably a waste of your money.
Here's my suggestion: Hit that workout hard (like you always do) then prep that tasty protein shake, only now start dropping in that scoop of DAA. You'll get your protein, your healthy calories, and your DAA (delivered at a time when your body will be most likely to benefit from it).
You could also try taking your DAA dosage before bed, since HGH is mainly produced at night.
Primaforce D-Aspartic-Acid Ingredients
D-Aspartic Acid (DAA)Aspartic acid is a non-essential amino acid, meainingit can be synthesized by th body. Aspartic acid is found in:
Animal sources: luncheon meats, sausage meat, wild game
Vegetable sources: sprouting seeds, oat flakes, avocado, asparagus, young sugarcane, and molasses from sugar beets.
Dietary supplements, either as aspartic acid itself or salts (such as magnesium aspartate)
The sweetener aspartame (NutraSweet, Equal, Canderel, etc.)
D-Aspartic Acid (DAA - one of the two form of Aspartic Acid) is present in neuroendocrine tissues of humans and plays a role in the synthesis of both LH (Luteinizing hormone, also known as lutropin) and testosterone.
Supplementation with 3 grams (3,000mg) per day resulted in a 33% testosterone increase of 33%. While this might seem impressive, a 33% increase is unlikely to provide any real training boost or visible results. Added to this is that the majority of supplement containg DAA and claiming to be the 'next best thing' typically have a much less than 3g dose.
The straight scoop seems to be that as far as a test booster, DAA isn't that great. You have to take a huge dose for a relatively small effect.
