D-Aspartic acid is a non essential amino acid that may be beneficial for those aiming to increase lean muscle mass
D-Aspartic acid is a non essential amino acid which is an important building block for proteins. D-Aspartic acid is a metabolite in the urea cycle and participates in gluconeogenesis. D Aspartic Acid is formed mainly in the pituitary gland, hypothalamus, and testes.
D-Aspartic Acid stimulates the production of signal molecules which in turn may help to increase growth hormones in the body. From an athletic perspective this allows your body to produce the elements required to increase lean muscle growth, strength and power.
In one study of D-Aspartic Acid, researchers provided a group of males (aged 27-37) a daily dose of 3.12 grams of D-Aspartic acid for twelve consecutive days. In the subjects that consumed the supplement, growth hormone increased by 33% after the twelve days. The results of this study have considerable implications for those looking to achieve specific performance goals.
