Boost Testosterone & Brain Power

Banging out reps on the bench and working algebraic equations. Is it possible to develop brawn and brain power simultaneously? According to a study published in the journal Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology, these two strengths aren't necessarily mutually exclusive. At least they have aspartic acid in common.

Researchers in Naples, Italy found that men in their mid-20s who consumed 3 grams of aspartic acid daily for 12 days increased testosterone production by as much as 50%. In another study, lab rats who supplemented for 16 days showed learning and memory improvements compared to rats given a placebo.

True Strength Moment: While this nonessential amino acid may seem like an unbeatable component of any student athlete's supplementation strategy, you might be surprised to learn that it's already part of Gold Standard 100% Whey, Platinum Hydrowhey, Pro Complex, Gold Standard 100% Casein and NitroCore 24, as are a host of other amino acids. When it comes to supplement science, the Protein Professionals are ahead of the curve.
