By Boston Testosterone Partners,
October 23, 2013 – A medical study recently revealed that the popular supposed testosterone booster, D-Aspartic Acid was found to be ineffective in boosting testosterone levels. Far too many men today fall for the marketing claims by testosterone booster supplement companies. We have yet to see a testosterone booster increase testosterone in new patients we blood test.
Clearly, if they worked, all the top endocrinologists would be offering them to patients. They are not a safe or viable option to treat andropause and are not a surrogate for medical Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
Most importantly however, out of this study came the evidence that we’ve been telling many of our patients for years; the side effects to testosterone boosters are certain and severe.
Not only do testosterone boosters fail to help men, but our new patients that come into us after taking them almost always have dangerous elevations to their liver enzymes, kidney markers and their cholesterol is not in range. Fortunately, we are able to fix almost everyone who has not taken them for too long.
This new study found the same stress placed on liver and kidneys.
Recently a small human study was published by sports scientists Darryn Willoughby and Brian Leutholtz in Nutrition Research, the effect of D-aspartic acid on testosterone levels is minimal and the same goes for its effect on muscle strength.
After an Italian study showed that supplementation with 3 g sodium-D-aspartate boosted testosterone levels in elderly men, D-aspartic acid analogues became a modest rage in the sports supplements world.
They conducted a 28-day long experiment with 20 recreational bodybuilders whose average age was 22.
The researchers gave half of their subjects 3 g D-aspartic acid daily. The other half of the subjects were given a placebo.
The supplement didn’t work. The tables below show that the increases in testosterone level and strength were negligible. The effects were not significant at all.
What had risen significantly? The level of the enzyme D-aspartate oxidase – an enzyme that breaks down D-aspartic acid in the intestines, kidneys and liver.
“We conclude that 28 days of D-aspartic acid supplementation at a daily dose of 3 g is ineffective in upregulating the activity of the hypothalamo-pituitary-gonadal axis and has no preferential effects in which to increase skeletal muscle mass and strength in resistance-trained men”, the researchers wrote.
Having low testosterone levels is nothing to mess around with. Not getting tested or taking over the counter unproven supplements can cause serious harm.
