What is Alpha GPC Powder?
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.
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.
Alpha GPC Benefits
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.
Why Buy Alpha GPC?
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.
Alpha GPC Dosage
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.
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.
Where To Buy Alpha GPC 99%
