Aspartic acid

tickPart of the Amino Acid group
How does it work?
Aspartic acid, also known as aspartate, is a non-essential amino acid. Studies show that aspartic may increase resistance to fatigue and increase endurance.
Who is it used for?
Anyone involved in regular intense physical exercise, particularly bodybuilders and strength athletes, may benefit from the use of aspartic acid.
How does it work?
Research indicates that aspartic acid may act as an excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain. Of further interest to bodybuilders and athletes, aspartic acid is a metabolite in the urea cycle, aiding the body in removing detrimental ammonia. It also participates in gluconeogenisis, which is the process in which the body generates glucose from non-carbohydrate sources.

Studies show that aspartic may increase resistance to fatigue and increase endurance. Low levels of aspartic acid have been associated with chronic fatigue. Aspartic acids anti-fatigue and energising effects may be a result of its role in the krebs cycle. During the krebs cycle, aspartic acid aids in the production of asparagine, arginine, lysine, methionine, threonine, the BCAA isoleucine and many nucleotides, all important amino acids and biochemical's that support energy and fatigue resistance.
How do I use it?
Aspartic acid is found in most protein-rich foods and supplements. Providing protein intake is sufficient, there is little need to supplement with additional aspartic acid.
