Aspartic acid, also known as L-aspartate, is medically proved to help promote a robust metabolism, and it is generally used to treat fatigue and depression.

Aspartic acid plays an important role in the citric acid cycle, or Krebs cycle, during which other amino acids and biochemicals, such as asparagine, arginine, lysine, methionine, threonine, and isoleucine are synthesized.

Aspartic acid gets its reputation as a treatment for chronic fatigue from the crucial role it plays in generating cellular energy. Aspartic acid moves the coenzyme Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NADH) molecules from the main body of the cells to its mitochondria, where it is used to generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the fuel that powers all cellular activity.

In short, the more NADH a cell has, the more chemical fuel it produces, and the more energy you have to get through your day. (Some studies have shown that aspartic acid actually increases both stamina and endurance levels in athletes.) In addition, this amino acid helps transport minerals needed to form healthy RNA and DNA to the cells, and strengthens the immune system by promoting increased production of immunoglobulins and antibodies (which are immune system proteins).

Aspartic acid keeps your mind sharp by increasing concentrations of NADH in the brain, which is thought to boost the production of neurotransmitters and chemicals needed for normal mental functioning. It also removes excess toxins from the cells, particularly ammonia, which is very damaging to the brain and nervous system as well as the liver; and also removes chronic and excessive water retentions of the cells.

There are no toxic effects of Aspartic Acid and daily recommendation of its supplementation could range up to 1500 milligrams for Adults and 500 milligrams for Children.

In Summary Aspartic Acid Benefits:

  • Increases Natural Testosterone
  • Increases Natural Libido
  • Increases Natural Strength and Stamina
  • Increases Muscle Size, Density and Thickness
  • Reduces Fatigue
  • Reduces Depression
  • Reduces Cell Damages and Infections
  • Reduces Air passage and Artery blocks
