How Does D-Aspartic Acid Cause Testosterone Release?

In mammals, D-Aspartic acid has been shown to have a significant effect on the hypothalamo-pituitary-testicular axis. In this regard, D-aspartic acid may cause the release of luteinizing hormone from the brain, and also testosterone release from the testes. In rats, … Continue reading

D-aspartic Acid

D-aspartic acid is unusual in that amino acids normally utilised in the human body are the levo L-forms. Other D-forms of amino acids sound in humans include the free forms of D-alanine, G-glutamate and D-serine. Most D-aspartic acid in mammals … Continue reading

D-aspartate and Steroidogenesis

D-amino acids are unusual because the predominant form for amino acids in humans and mammals are the L-form. However, a number of D-form amino acids are found. In particular, D-aspartic acid is an amino acid that may play a central … Continue reading

Does D-Aspartate Supplementation Reduce Oestrogen Levels?

D-aspartate (D-aspartic acid) is a supplement that may have a number of effects on mammalian hormonal regulation. One controversial aspect of D-aspartate supplementation is whether or not the supplements are able to elevate testosterone in healthy men. This effect would … Continue reading

D-Aspartic Acid and Luteinising Hormone

Evidence from animal studies suggests that D-aspartic acid is able to stimulate the synthesis of testosterone. One way this may happen is through the interaction of the D-aspartic acid with the testes themselves. In leydig cells, D-aspartic acid may upregulate … Continue reading

D-Aspartic Acid and Testosterone

D-aspartic acid is an amino acid found in the mammalian central nervous system. Evidence suggests that D-Aspartic acid may be involved in the synthesis and release of testosterone. D-aspartate is not essential and is synthesised in cells naturally. The amino … Continue reading
