PRODUCT INFORMATION

Product Description

Alpha GPC is a cholinergic compound found in the brain and is a precursor to creating acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is one of the most important neurotransmitters in the brain that impacts memory, learning, attention and alertness.

Alpha GPC provides some additional advantages by increasing acetylcholine in the central nervous system and seems to be the more efficient choline precursor because of its bioavailability (1).

Alpha GPC Benefits

  • Supports cognitive function in the elderly with age-related cognitive decline more significantly than CDP Choline (ref)*
  • May increase the production of the human growth hormone (HGH or somatropin) by working with pituitary gland (ref)*
  • Promotes increases in strength outputs during resistance training workouts (ref)*
  • May enhance lower body muscle performance (ref)*
  • May provide a steadier level of choline in the body than with CDP Choline* (ref)*

Properties

Alpha GPC Choline is a cholinergic compound found in the brain and a precursor to creating acetylcholine. Alpha GPC increases acetylcholine in the central nervous system and is an extremely efficient choline precursor because of its bioavailability (2).

Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter in the parts of the brain that impact memory and learning, attention, and alertness –making it one of the most beneficial neurotransmitter compounds for overall cognitive function and brain health (3).

Supplementing with an acetylcholine precursor may promote an enhancing effect on these areas and support overall brain function.

The ability of Alpha GPC to enhance lower body muscle performance related to isometric exercise is also being studied (5). Alpha GPC is often found in fitness supplements because of its ability to increase power.

By working directly with the pituitary gland, Alpha GPC may increase the production of the human growth hormone (2). Preliminary trials relating to Alpha GPC administered to healthy volunteers prior to resistance exercise have shown promise for increasing strength output during workouts, presumably due to its influence on HGH (4).

In addition, Alpha GPC may provide a steadier level in the body than supplementation with CDP (Citicoline).  Levels increase slowly but remain elevated longer than with Citicoline (1).

Dosage

Pure Nootropics uses Alpha GPC derived from soy and is generally considered a natural source.

Pure Nootropics’ Alpha GPC Capsules provides 250 mg of Alpha GPC. Suggested use of Alpha GPC Capsules for adults is 1 capsule by mouth, up to two times per day, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.

Pure Nootropics’ Alpha GPC powder comes in a less hygroscopic 50% format (so that the product is more stable and less likely to pull moisture from the air) where 600mg of the powder provides a dose of 300 mg Alpha GPC. Accordingly the 15 gram powder contains 7.5 grams of Alpha GPC, and the 30 gram powder contains 15 grams of Alpha GPC. We provide a 0.625 cc scoop with purchase, but recommend a scale for greater accuracy. Suggested use of Alpha GPC 50% powder is 1 scoop by mouth, up to two times per day, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.

We suggest the use of a scale for powdered Alpha GPC 50% to ensure consistent dosing.
