Aspartic Acid D (Asp)
Chemical Properties: Acidic (Acidic R-group and their amides)
Physical Properties: Polar (charged)

Aspartic acid is one of two acidic amino acids. Aspartic acid and glutamic acid play important roles as general acids in enzyme active centers, as well as in maintaining the solubility and ionic character of proteins.

Proteins in the serum are critical to maintaining the pH balance in the body; it is largely the charged amino acids that are involved in the buffering properties of proteins. Aspartic acid is alanine with one of the β hydrogens replaced by a carboxylic acid group. The pKa of the β carboxyl group of aspartic acid in a polypeptide is about 4.0

Note that aspartic acid has an α-keto homolog, oxaloacetate, just as pyruvate is the α-keto homolog of alanine. Aspartic acid and oxaloacetate are interconvertable by a simple transamination reaction, just as alanine and pyruvate are interconvertible.

Oxaloacetate is one of the intermediates of the Krebs cycle.

Aspartic acid and oxaloacetate are interconvertable by a simple transamination reaction
Aspartic acid is a non-essential amino acid and is found in abundance in plant proteins, especially in sprouting seeds but can be manufactured in the body from oxaloacetic acid and was first isolated in 1868 from legumin in plant seed. Aspartic acid, as well as glutamic acid, is the only amino acid that has a negatively charged carboxylate group on the side chain.

Aspartic acid is required for
It is of paramount importance in the metabolism during construction of other amino acids and biochemicals in the citric acid cycle. Among the biochemicals that are synthesized from aspartic acid are asparagine, arginine, lysine, methionine, threonine, isoleucine, and several nucleotides.

It is needed for stamina, brain and neural health and assists the liver by removing excess ammonia and other toxins from the bloodstream. It is also very important in the functioning of RNA, DNA, as well as the production of immunoglobulin and antibody synthesis.

Deficiency of aspartic acid
Symptoms may include fatigue and depression.

Dosage
Dosage listed is the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA), but be aware that this dosage is the minimum that you require per day, to ward off serious deficiency of this particular nutrient. In the therapeutic use of this nutrient, the dosage is usually increased considerably, but the toxicity level must be kept in mind.

Food sources of aspartic acid
It is found in dairy, beef, poultry, sprouting seeds

Key Benefits
  • Protein synthesis
  • Increased stamina, resistance to fatigue.
  • Protection of the liver by aiding in the removal of ammonia.
  • DNA and RNA metabolism
  • Immune system function. Aspartic Acid enhances immunoglobulin production and antibody formation.
  • Neurotransmitter function. Aspartic Acid is an excitatory neurotransmitter.
  • May help with depression.
  • Involved in the Kreb's Cycle, the fundamental biochemical reaction taking place within the mitochondria in our cells. The Kreb's Cycle results in the production of energy.
