Alpha GPC
is a natural choline compound found in the brain and in milk. As an acetylcholine precursor, it can rapidly deliver choline to the brain across the blood-brain barrier.
Choline is one of the basic nutrients necessary for optimal cognitive function because choline is a precursor to acetylcholine, a key neurotransmitter without which we couldn’t move, think, remember, or sleep.

Alpha GPC has not been evaluated as a therapeutic medicine in Australia, so I can’t mention specific benefits but there is plenty of research that you can easily look up for yourself.

A high-quality supplement for everyday use.

  • Ideal addition to a Choline source if taking one of the Racetams


Serving
Suggestion: 250-1000mg per day (e.g 250-500mg twice a day)



What is the quality or concentration?

With some supplements, you have to read the fine print to find out it's mixed with secondary cheaper products to make it look like you are getting more...

This is just the pure product, and nothing else - no fillers or extras.

Because of the concentration of this product, it is advised to measure with accurate scales.



Your Brain as You Age

(Extract from http://www.ilifelink.com/cdp-choline_and_alpha_gpc...)

Aging humans and animals tend to suffer from impaired short-term memory. This loss of working memory is largely the result of the deficient functioning of the “cholinergic” neurons in a part of the brain known as the basal forebrain. The age-related deficits in this part of the brain include decreased synthesis and release of acetylcholine, as well as decreases in the number of cholinergic brain cells and in the number and function of acetylcholine receptors on such cells. You might reasonably conclude from this that all we need to do to slow down brain aging is supply more choline to the brain, but you’d be only partly right. The problem is that choline transport into the brain is not especially efficient and tends to decline with age. Fortunately, there are two choline-based supplements that can do the trick - CDP-choline and alpha GPC.



How do you work out how much Choline is different Choline supplements?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choline

Taking Choline (C5H14NO, Mol. Weight: 104) as the reference...

  • Alpha GPC (L-alpha-Glycerylphosphoryl choline, Mol. Weight: 257.26) -> 40% Choline - i.e. multiply by 0.40 to get amount of Choline
  • CDP-Choline (Citicoline, Mol. Weight: 488.33) -> 21% Choline - i.e. multiply by 0.21 to get amount of Choline
  • CDP-Choline-Na (Mol. Weight: 510.31) -> 20% Choline - i.e. multiply by 0.20 to get amount of Choline
  • Choline Dihydrogen Citrate (Mol. Weight: 295.29) -> 35% Choline - i.e. multiply by 0.35 to get amount of Choline
  • Phosphatidylcholine (Mol. Weight: 760.09) -> 14% Choline - i.e. multiply by 0.14 to get amount of Choline.
  • You can use the same method for other choline compounds if you know the molecular weight (104/molecular weight x 100).


No claim of therapeutic action or prophylactic action is implied, nor is it sold to treat any disease or illness or cause any physiological action. Alpha GPC is ‘Not suitable for children under 15 years of age or pregnant women: Should only be used under medical or dietetic supervision’. Consult your physician before use if taking other medication, or if suffering from acute severe illnesses or kidney damage, or if you have type II diabetes or a major depressive disorder. As a single compound, ‘it is not intended as a sole source of nutrition and should be consumed in conjunction with a nutritious diet and in conjunction with an appropriate physical training or exercise program'.

Item is packaged in Australia from imported ingredients.
