How to take d-aspartic acid powder?

The original Italian study proving the effectiveness of d-aspartic acid (DAA) found that 3 grams of DAA a day increase the blood testosterone levels by 42%. The study took 12 days. The d-aspartic acid dosage recommendation is to take 3 grams of DAA every day for two weeks, after two weeks you need a week off the supplement to avoid building up tolerance. D-Aspartic acid powder has a distinctive chalky and sour taste. If you find its taste unpleasant take it with a glas of orange juice.

What should be taken with d-aspartic acid?

You don’t have to take any other supplements with d-aspartic acid, however you can stack DAA with other testosterone boosters, like tribulus terrestris, or include it in your daily dose of nutritional supplements. E.g. you can take the DAA with protein, fish oil, multivitamin or creatine. Some bodybuilders recommend taking aromatase inhibitor (AI) with DAA. AI keeps the aromatase enzyme from acting on testosterone and converting the test into estrogen.

Can I take d-aspartic acid with tribulus terrestris?

Yes, you can stack d-aspartic acid with tribulus terrestris. When you take d-aspartic acid stacking is possible, e.g. with a test booster containing extract from mucuna pruriens. Of course you can buy stacks containing DAA and other supplements, e.g. the Prime Male containing alongside DAA also bioperine, boron, korean red ginseng, luteolin, magnesium, mucuna pruriens, nettle root extract, vitamins B6, D3, K2 and zinc.

Can I take double load of d-aspartic acid?

Primaforce, one of the DAA supplement manufacturers suggested higher dosage of d-aspartic acid. Instead of repeating the dosage of 3 grams a day applided in the Italian study, Primaforce recommended a loading phase with 3 grams applied in the morning and another 3 grams in the evening. According to Primaforce, the duration of the loading phase should last five days. Please make sure that you don’t overdose the DAA supplement, especially if you accomplish such a loading phase. After the load phase you should stop taking d-aspartic acid for some time. The cycle on and off the supplement prevents your body from building up tolerance.

Is DAA an amino acid?

Yes, d-aspartic acid (DAA) is the d-form of the amino acid aspartic acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins and the muscle tissue, one of them is the aspartic acid. The “regular” form of the amino acids is the l-form. In some specific tissues (testes, pituary gland and hypothalamus) l-aspartic acid is processed into the d-aspartic acid. The DAA is a message molecule used by the body to control the release of the luteinizing hormone, gonadotropin-releasing hormone and in consequence the testosterone.

What are the d-aspartic acid benefits?

The benefits of d-aspartic acid are obvious. DAA significantly increases blood testosterone levels, which in turn helps the muscles grow and increases libido.

Why is d-aspartic acid good for bodybuilding?

D-Aspartic acid raises the blood levels of luteinizing hormone (LH) and gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH). These hormones signal the body to produce and release more testosterone, it is a testosterone booster. Testosterone helps your muscles grow, this is why using testosterone boosters is a good idea, especially if you are over 35 and your body doesn’t produce as much testosterone as when you were in your twenties.

What are the d-aspartic acid side effects?

The side effects of d-aspartic acid are almost non-existent, because there is no negative response from the body compared to taking testosterone or steroids. The body counters the external supply of testosterone with estrogene and with testosterone inhibition. DAA works differently, so there is no negative reaction.
To avoid side effects of overdosing you should cycle DAA, i.e. two weeks on DAA, one week off DAA.

    Eric,Stacking them together will illiict a much greater response as well as you will get the best from both worlds as testofen test boosters (Test Freak) always tend to take 3-4 weeks of continuous use, depending on your own unique biochemistry, to feel the full effects. Whereas DAA base test boosters (Anabolic Freak) act very fast inside the body and you will notice a response within the first week. Stacking them together you will get the fast kick in from the DAA as well as the extended kick in from the test freak later on for a breath of fresh air and a whole new feel to the stack you are running.My opinion, 30 days/30 days of the two products doesn’t benefit you from the Test Freak side of things because of it’s prolonged, yet effective, presence. If you are going to stack them I would suggest running them both for 8 weeks, with at least a 4 week off period before running them again, with no need for PCT at all afterwards.
