Special Precautions and Warnings
Children: Aspartic acid is POSSIBLY UNSAFE when given by mouth to infants. It has been linked to possible brain defects in animal research. Don't give aspartic acid supplements to infants. There isn't enough reliable information to know if aspartic acid supplements are safe in older children and adolescents or what the side effects might be. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
