D-Aspartic Acid (DAA) and PES Erase Review

posted in: Testosterone Booster Reviews | 0

OK, yeah, I’m technically cheating by using 2 products together (even though each product has just one ingredient). But the synergy is unbeatable and together they still cost less or the same as any top standalone testosterone booster. And with a 43% testosterone increase in 30 days…the results speak for themselves.

Ingredients/Mechanism of Action:

D-Aspartic Acid (DAA) is an amino acid that has been building some serious momentum in the supplement industry. It increases luteinizing hormone, which directly signals the testes to produce more testosterone. The numbers backing that science are there…it has independent lab studies on humans (not rats or some other lab animal) and user reports from those like myself showing significantly elevated testosterone levels. You feel it too, my workout and sport performance increases were on enough of a higher level for people to ask what I was taking. Oh yeah, and it costs a paltry $13 for a month’s supply, that bang for the buck simply can’t be beat. However…

When your testosterone levels are raised, which DAA WILL clearly do, estrogen levels also rise in the body as a result. High estrogen will seriously hamper many of the benefits of elevated testosterone such as improved body composition and athletic performance. DAA in particular is known for producing large estrogen increases…and that’s where PES Erase comes in. PES Erase is designed to stop your body from producing excess estrogen, while not impacting the testosterone increases from the D-Aspartic Acid.

Alright, enough with the science (at least for the most part), how about I talk about my actual experience using DAA and PES Erase.

Initial Observations:

D-Aspartic Acid: DAA comes in powder form. The instructions are as simple as it gets, take 1 scoop (3 grams) of powder once a day with the first meal of the day. It does have a noticeable chalky and bitter taste. It’s not so bad that its undrinkable in my opinion, but some people I know mix it with orange juice, which masks the taste perfectly. The effects, which I’ll get into below, kicked in very quickly (within a week). I know some others for whom it took a bit longer for them to “feel” DAA working, even up to 3 weeks in some rare cases.

PES Erase: Erase comes with 90 capsules in a bottle. The recommended dose is 3 caps a day, making each bottle last 30 days. There should be a 4-8 hour gap between each cap taken and it doesn’t matter whether it’s taken with or without food. Just like DAA, it kicked in extremely quickly, maybe even faster than DAA.

I’ve used Erase alone in the past before using it with DAA so it was easy to recognize when each supplement was kicking in by the effects I was noticing.

General Observations/Mood/Libido:

Mood was certainly the first indication that DAA had properly kicked in. It was that unmistakable alpha male feeling, full of aggression, vitality, energy, well-being and confidence, that let me know my testosterone was on the rise.  I was sleeping much better/deeper as well. Why can’t we all feel this way all the time damn it!

Actually, there’s probably a very good reason: libido. Mine was completely insatiable, maybe even to the limit of unhealthily so, although you won’t find me complaining, I thought it was a fun few weeks on the stuff. I could have put Russell Brand to shame. Some guys I know don’t get the crazy libido boost while still having the product work for them, so your mileage may vary.

Because of the decreased estrogen levels caused by Erase, I experienced far less water retention than normal. I immediately looked and felt so much drier and firmer, as though all the water weight I normally keep was sucked out (actually, pissed out is more accurate).

Workout Performance and Recovery:

The alpha male mood is fun and all but that’s not what I was taking a test booster for: I want results. My diet has always been on point so it was just a matter of bringing it in the gym.

I’ve always found myself straining through high volume workout routines designed for muscular growth, even while on creatine and beta-alanine. I simply couldn’t do the amount of reps I was supposed to do without very long rests between sets and even then I was struggling. That changed with DAA: I managed to keep squeezing out those reps until I hit my mark. I think this is because my recovery was infinitely better than it usually is and as a result my muscles felt much fresher from workout to workout.

I may have promised no more science above, but I believe the increased recovery is due the increased protein synthesis resulting from elevated testosterone levels.

I also experienced some great pumps and vascularity while using DAA and Erase. The energy from the elevated testosterone removed any need to take a pre-workout stimulant for those days when I would have come in tired or disinterested.

Body Composition/Appearance:

This is probably what you’ve come to read: did I look different?

Well, solid diet, great workouts, body in an anabolic state: there can really only be one result.

The best part of it all is the quality of the weight gained. Normally, when I bulk, I either barely gain any weight at all or I gain a nearly equal amount of fat and muscle or even more fat than muscle. There’s no middle ground no matter what I do. This time, the callipers said my body fat percentage barely increased at all. In other words, I gained a few pounds and nearly all of it was muscle.

I looked great in the mirror, clearly showing increased muscle mass with great muscle tone and vascularity to boot. And others noticed too, I definitely got some people asking what I had been doing.


While there aren’t any long-term studies on using D-Aspartic Acid or PES Erase, prescription testosterone and anti-estrogen medication have been used for many years. They are considered safe and in fact used to help treat health conditions in many people.

As for the products themselves, all of the short-term studies and anecdotal reports suggest they are perfectly safe and carry little to no side-effects. Most of the side-effects DAA users report,  like low sex drive and bloating, are due to high estrogen levels, which can be prevented by taking an anti-estrogen like Erase. Most people, including myself, who use this combination, have experienced no ill-effects. I have used them multiple times, had bloodwork taken and all is well with me.

It’s important to note that everyone’s baseline estrogen levels vary. If your estrogen level becomes too low, you may feel some mild joint pain while using PES Erase. If that occurs, simply dial back your Erase dose, i.e. if you were taking 3 caps/day, take 2 caps/day.

Both DAA and Erase state you shouldn’t use them for longer than 8 weeks with a minimum 4 week break before continuing use. It’s important to respect these restrictions and allow the body sufficient rest from the altered hormone levels.


I’ve come back to this combination time and time since my very successful first experience with it which I’ve described in my review above. It has now been taken to the next level by my new #1 ranked product, Core Test, which combines these ingredients with a couple others, but the combination is still very effective all on its own (though I do recommend you give Core Test a shot if you want the absolute best results).

DAA and Erase has given me better results in the gym, in the mirror and in the bloodwork than anything else I’ve tried (and that’s a LOOONNNGG list). And coming in under $40 / month, $12.99 for the D-Aspartic Acid and $23.89 for PES Erase, I consider the price fair and affordable considering the results you get in such a short period of time.
