What is Aspartic acid?

There are two types of Aspartic acid, D-aspartic acid and L-aspartic acid. L-aspartic acid is thought to help promote a powerful metabolism that is sometimes used to treat fatigue and depression. 

Aspartate plays an important role in the citric acid cycle, or the Krebs cycle, during which other amino acids and biochemical substances such as aspartic acid, arginine, lysine, methionine, threonine , isoleucine, synthesis.

Where does Aspartic acid exist?

L-aspartic acid is a non-essential amino acid, which means that the body is able to manufacture its own supply. It is also found in dairy, beef, poultry, sugar cane and molasses (the artificial sweetener aspartame is made from aspartic acid and phenylalaline, another amino acid). 

What does Aspartic acid use for? 

1. treatment for fatigue

People with diets low in protein or with eating disorders or malnutrition may develop a deficiency, not only in aspartic acid, but in other amino acids as well, and experience extreme fatigue or depression. 

L-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 cell to its mitochondria, where it is used to generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the fuel that powers all cellular activity. 

In short, the more NADH a cell has, the more chemical fuel it produces, which means 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 (immune system proteins). 

2keep your mind sharp

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. 

3.  As amino acid supplements

Serious athletes may need to take amino acid supplements, and aspartate can be found in protein supplements such as amino acid tablets and whey protein powder drinks/bars, which are usually sold as energy boosters. They are usually available at most pharmacies and health food stores or in your local gym or fitness club.

3.  D-AA act on a stimulatory receptor

D-aspartic acid (D-AA) is an amino acid regulator of testosterone synthesis and may act on a stimulatory receptor (NMDA). D-AA shows promise in aiding male fertility. Healthy men supplementing D-AA experience only temporary increases in testosterone, which limits its use.
