Do not take D-aspartic Acid.....

It supposedly increases your testosterone level, but it also hurts the liver. I used to take it back in 2012 and when I went to get a blood test in 2014, it dramatically increased my liver enzymes (meaning I had some damage to the liver)

damn.. you ever get it checked again?

stuff like this is why i stay away from most supps. i'm taking some whey now and I still worry somewhat. I personally wouldn't try fat burners, test boosters, or those kinds of things. I especially stay away when I see tons of stuff in the ingredient label.

I've known people who just want to "try everything", I really don't get it. Some of the stuff they take, years later we find out it can be lethal, like DNP or whatever that crazy lethal fat burner is: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3381099/Father-nearly-died-overdosing-diet-pills-gain-beach-body.html

Yeah, the doctor asked me to do a follow up test 2 weeks later, and my liver enzyme dropped a bit, so he said that was a very good sign that it was nothing too serious, but had it stayed high or been even higher on the retest, that would be worrisome. Cause high liver enzyme means potential damage to the liver, which can lead to a series of nasty diseases, or that you already have a liver disease.
