What is N-Methyl-D-Aspartic-Acid? (NMDA) is an amino acid antagonist. When consumed it is shown help improve the production of growth hormone, FSH and LH, making it a powerful testosterone production catalyst. N-Methyl-D-Aspartic-Acid (NMDA) is also one of the main ingredients in Red Growth, Red Supplement’s premium muscle building, strength boosting and testosterone increasing supplement, coming soon! What does N-Methyl-D-Aspartic-Acid do? N-Methyl-D-Aspartic Acid binds to NMDA receptor sites in the brain, mimicking the effects of glutamate, the primary neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. When NMDARs become activated, it stimulates the secretion of Pregnenolone (P5); a steroid hormone that is a precursor to mineralocorticoids, estrogens, androgens, glucocorticoids, neuroactive steroids and progesterones. Increased levels of these hormones can improve mental energy levels, mood and more. The activation of the NMDA receptor sites also promotes the synthesis and utilization of anabolic hormones via the endocrine system. This means that increasing NMDA activity may affect levels of testosterone, HGH (human growth hormone), LH (luteinizing hormone), FSH (follicle stimulating hormone), and other androgenic hormones. We do know that NMDA receptors in the brain are involved in regulating testosterone secretions and supplements that stimulate these receptors have been shown to increase testosterone levels in men with low levels. Benefit of N-Methyl-D-Aspartic-Acid? Enhancing athletic performance Increase energy levels and mood Boosts Libido Increases Testosterone Raises LH, FSH, HGH levels Boosts cognitive function How to use N-Methyl-D-Aspartic-Acid? There has not been much research done into NMDA in humans and what the most effective dose would be. Dosages vary widely, with some people claiming 50 mg per day is the maximum, while other studies have experimented with close to 2 g per day being used. Due to such a wide discrepancy in dosing recommendations, it is important to start low and then build based upon how things feel. Side Effects Of N-Methyl-D-Aspartic-Acid? Not much research has been done on NMDA, therefore side effects are relatively unknown. However of the research available, negative side-effects on humans of daily NMDA supplementation seem slim-to-none. There have been studies done on dissected rat brains where NMDA was directly applied to brain tissue which caused cell death. But this finding has been completely blown out of proportions. NMDA may be classified as an excitotoxin, but the chances of it causing nerve death in humans due to overstimulation are nearly impossible.
