Lit Up Review
Lit Up is a pre workout supplement that has been manufactured and marketed by Applied Nutriceuticals.
This supplement promises to be the most innovative supplement of its kind and to help you not only build muscle, but do it in the most delicious way possible.
What Does Lit Up Do?
According to its website, this supplement’s secret ingredient is D-Aspartic Acid. Even though there are other ingredients that have been fairly effective in other supplements like beta alanine, betaine HCL and adenosyl methionine, it is the D-aspartic acid that Lit Up hinges its success on.
Comprising most of Lit Up’s formula, D-aspartic acid is supposed to help increase the amount of testosterone your body produces, thus helping you improve the efficacy of each of your workouts.
Even though there aren’t many products that use D-aspartic acid in their formula, we decided to do a little research on this ingredient to see if it could really affect your body in the way that Lit Up says it can.
Does It Work?
As we looked into this ingredient, we found that there is not much research done on this amino acid because it is not an essential one for mammals like humans.
Originally synthesized by boiling asparagus juice with a strong base, D-aspartic acid is only an essential building block for plants.
Its counterpart, L-aspartic acid, is actually incorporated into the amino acids that make up tissues in the body, making L-aspartic acid more beneficial for you than D-aspartic acid, which Lit Up claims to be so effective.
But even if D-aspartic acid were as essential to the body as its counterpart is, we still don’t see how it would boost your levels of testosterone like Lit Up’s makers say.
Because Lit Up uses ingredients that are not only ineffective but are also not supposed to do anything like what their website says, we don’t recommend this product.
The makers of pre-workout supplements should understand their ingredients thoroughly and only include ones that will actually increase your ability to produce tissue and gain strength.
