What Are Alpha-GPC Capsules?
Alpha-GPC (alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine, choline alfoscerate) is a compound that naturally occurs in the brain as well as several food sources, including eggs, fish, meat, and dairy. Although it occurs naturally within us, Alpha-GPC can also be synthesized from natural sources and made into a powder, which is sometimes added to capsules and is often taken as a nootropic supplement.
Alpha-GPC Capsules contain choline, which is an essential nutrient humans may acquire through diet or supplementation. Alpha-GPC is known to have cognitive benefits and has even been shown to improve athletic performance.
Alpha-GPC shows promising results through anecdotal evidence and animal studies.Alpha-GPC uses include:
- Cognitive and athletic performance - Animal studies involving rodents as well as human anecdotal evidence shows that Alpha-GPC can improve both physical and cognitive performance by affecting growth-hormone in healthy adults.
- Support brain health - In 1994, an Italian clinical trial showed promising results for Alpha-GPC in promotion of brain health. Over the course of 6 months, the participants were given an Alpha-GPC supplement regimen. They showed cognitive improvement considered statistically significant in 3 of 4 measurements.
Why Buy Alpha-GPC Capsules?
Alpha-GPC is GRAS-affirmed by the FDA, which means it is a compound that is generally recognized as safe. It is a naturally sourced, high-quality product.
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.
As a dietary supplement, take one 150mg Alpha-GPC capsule 1-2 times daily.
