Alpha GPC (Choline alfoscerate, Glycerylphosphorylcholine, Alpha Glycerylphosphorylcholine) is an acetylcholine precursor; this means that Alpha GPC is converted in the body to acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter responsible for learning and memory. Alpha GPC is often taken to increase acetylcholine levels in the brain.
Added acetylcholine has downstream effects of improving memory formation. This is particularly true when combining alpha GPC with a racetam source. Alpha GPC is considered to be one of the most efficient supplements for increase acetylcholine. This not only supports memory formation and learning, but prevents cognitive decline (such as senile dementia and Alzheimer’s disease).
Depending on use, studies where growth hormone and performance were increased used dosage of 600mg/day, while studies geared at treating cognitive decline used doses around 1,200mg/day. The FDA GRAS notice pertaining to the use of Alpha GPC indicates that 200mg/day is safe.
Those who are taking alpha GPC for cognitive advantages can get away with 3 – 600 mg per day. Elderly looking to prevent decline can use 1200 mg per day. Those in search of hGH benefits for bodybuilding may need a different dosage.
