Alpha-GPC, also known as choline alfoscerate and alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine, is a choline-containing compound found naturally in the brain as well as in small amounts in foods like meat, fish, eggs, and dairy.Alpha-GPC is also a natural phospholipid and precursor to the creation of phosphatidylcholine in the brain.
Studies and evidence show that alpha-GPC is considered one of the most efficient sources of choline, a fat-soluble member of the B vitamin complex. This indicates that alpha-GPC may effectively increase concentrations of choline.
Many potential alpha-GPC uses focus on its state as a precursor to acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that helps the brain send signals to nerves throughout the body. Acetylcholine has been shown to play an important role in memory formation, concentration, logical reasoning, and learning.
Studies indicate that alpha-GPC may support greater synaptic plasticity. This is essentially your brain’s method of adaptation and changing to new information, controlling how your neurons communicate with one another, which results in the process of creating and recalling memories. This may translate to improved retrieval and retention of information. According to research, alpha-GPC may enhance your overall learning capacity and problem solving abilities.
Alpha-GPC is reported to support cognitive health. While there are no randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trials showing this is true in healthy adults, anecdotal evidence shows support.
We offer a naturally derived, non-GMO alpha-GPC product manufactured with organic ingredients. Alpha-GPC is also GRAS-affirmed by the FDA, meaning it is Generally Recognized As Safe.
Our Alpha-GPC 99% Powder is a nearly pure product for those who desire full potency, but we also offer Alpha-GPC 50% Powder for those concerned with alpha-GPC’s sensitive hygroscopic nature.
As a dietary supplement, take 300mg of Alpha-GPC once daily.
Alpha GPC and Hygroscopy
Alpha-GPC is a hygroscopic compound, which means it draws in moisture from the air around it, physically changing it from a powder to a gel-like substance when not stored properly. While this hygroscopic effect doesn’t necessarily mean the product has degraded, it is a sign of improper storage. Storing your Alpha-GPC in airtight containers (think vacuum seal) is helpful. While we take steps to ensure this does not happen to your product, should Alpha-GPC 99% arrive with clumps, simply break them up prior to use. Nootropics Depot offers both a 30g and 60g jar.
Why don’t we sell an Alpha-GPC 100% Powder? Alpha-GPC with a purity of greater than 99% will undergo hygroscopy very quickly as soon as it meets the air.
Always discuss the addition of nootropics and supplements with your doctor or another trusted healthcare professional, and stay informed about how a product might affect you--everyone is different.

Although the 99% can attract moisture, it's worth the tradeoff for me because it dissolves nicely in my mouth (and tastes sweet). I wash it down with water. The 50% gets clumpy and imo is best for making capsules (which I'm too lazy to do since I have so many powdered supps). Matthew Eckert on 10th Apr 2018
Definitely worth the money, as described. Noticeable difference in energy levels when taking. Unknown on 4th Apr 2018
I had also ordered some alpha-gpc from another website, the other websites gpc was clumpier, this Gov is pretty fine and seems to absorb better. Shawn Lurkins on 25th Mar 2018
I have a stack that I take spaced out and cycled. It's quite a lot so I use Alpha-GPC 100% for my choline source. Here's the catch with the 99-100% alpha gpc, it will cake up and gel up if exposed to air for long periods of time so the best thing to is get a couple jars and fill them up and cap them, and then take the bottle of alpha-gpc and vac seal it so no air gets to it. It's THE best product for choline source and at a fantastic price! 10/10 - ND 4 LIFE! bynarie on 22nd Mar 2018
I have personally stacked this Alpha GPC with Armodafinil, Phenylpiracetam and Noopept. Makes a noticeable difference, especially when stacked. On the downside, it is extremely hydroscopic, it absorbs water very easily and might form small clumps in the container. R on 17th Mar 2018

Great product. Will order again. Laura Caperton on 17th Jan 2018
There are good reviews, for me it just doesn't do anything.
Good point for this, is that it's easy to swallow or use sublingually. Unknown on 13th Dec 2017

Fisicamente y cognitivamente mejoria, pero el producto se humedece con facilidad
ND Admin: El alfa-GPC 99% es muy higroscópico. Si desea evitarlo, sugerimos el 50% de Alpha-GPC. Eso se estabiliza para manejar mejor la humedad. toni on 15th Sep 2017
