What Is Alpha GPC 50% Powder?
Alpha-GPC is a naturally occurring compound that is actually found in our brain and also in some food sources, including eggs, dairy, meat, and fish. Alpha-GPC, also known as alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine and choline alfoscerate, can be produced synthetically or derived from natural sources, and comes in powder form but can be added to capsules as well.
Alpha-GPC is a choline-containing nootropic compound with much anecdotal evidence suggesting it may help with both athletic and cognitive performance, and one study shows Alpha-GPC powder to benefit brain health.*
Nootropics Depot offers both Alpha-GPC 99% powder and Alpha-GPC 50% powder. Our Alpha-GPC 50% Powder is available in 30 or 60 grams.
Alpha GPC Benefits
- Improved athletic and cognitive performance* - Some scientific research on rodents and anecdotal evidence suggest that Alpha-GPC may support cognition in healthy adults.
- Brain Health* - A 1994 clinical trial in Italy of more than 2,000 people showed that Alpha-GPC benefits overall brain health. Varying doses over the course of 6 months resulted in statistically significant improvement in cognition in three of four measurement scales.
Alpha GPC Dosage
The typical dosage for Alpha-GPC 50% Powder is 300mg 1-2 times daily. It’s a good idea to start out with a smaller dose and work your way up if necessary.
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.
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.
Where to Buy Alpha GPC 50% Powder?
Nootropics Depot offers a naturally sourced Alpha-GPC product. Alpha-GPC is GRAS-affirmed by the FDA (Generally Recognized As Safe).
Alpha-GPC 50% Powder is a great option for anyone who lives in a humid climate. While Nootropics Depot takes care to prevent clumping of the powder, Alpha-GPC is a hydroscopic compound, meaning it absorbs moisture readily from the air and can turn into a gel if not properly stored. Alpha-GPC 99% Powder is more sensitive to hydroscopy, so the 50% powder is a good choice if this is a concern.
If your Alpha-GPC 50% Powder does arrive with clumps, simply break them up with your fingers. Storing this nootropic in an airtight container can help as well.
Product contains one 30g or 60g jar of Alpha GPC 50% Powder.
