Why Choose Alpha GPC Softgels as Your Choline Supplement?
Alpha GPC is one of the best choline supplements currently available, delivering choline to the brain quickly and efficiently. However, it is plagued with one major issue which is that it is incredibly hygroscopic. This means that Alpha GPC sucks moisture out of the air. Due to this, Alpha GPC will quickly clump up before eventually turning into a gel. While there are some methods to prevent this from happening, there is not a foolproof way to ensure stability. This softgel formulation however is practically foolproof and should ensure the greatest degree of stability and usability. Additionally, Alpha GPC is highly soluble in water. This allows us to achieve a meaningful concentration of Alpha GPC dissolved in a softgel capsule.
Alpha GPC Softgels Benefits and Uses
Alpha GPC softgels are very versatile and can be used for a wide variety of benefits and uses. The most common application is as a way to boost overall choline levels. Choline deficiencies are becoming increasingly common and are usually corrected by eating high choline foods such as eggs. However, the issue with relying on food for choline is two-fold:
- The amount of choline present in foods varies quite a bit so it will be difficult to ensure a consistent and adequate choline intake purely through diet.
- Unfortunately, choline obtained via our diet does not make it to the brain very easily. So, if your main focus for taking a choline supplement is to elevate brain levels of choline, then relying on diet alone would not be the best option.
However, with Nootropics Depot's Alpha GPC softgels you are getting an accurate and consistent dose of highly bioavailable choline that will readily make it to the brain.
This bring us to the second benefit of an Alpha GPC supplement which is its ability to act as an add-on or stand-alone supplement to support cognitive function. By promoting brain choline levels, we can enhance acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is one of the most important neurotransmitters when it comes to learning and memory. In addition to this, free brain choline can also directly activate the Alpha-7 Nicotinic Acetylcholine receptors. Activation of these receptors strongly regulates inflammation in the brain, which can have a direct cognitive-enhancing effect.
The final benefit of Alpha GPC softgels is that it may promote physical strength. Studies have shown that taking an Alpha GPC supplement prior to exercise can increase power output. However, the mechanism behind this is still not entirely understood.
Alpha GPC Dosage for Softgels
As a dietary supplement, take one Alpha GPC softgel 1-2 times 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.
Where to Buy Alpha GPC Softgels
Nootropics Depot offers 60ct. or 180ct. jars of Alpha GPC softgels. Nootropics Depot's Alpha GPC has been lab-tested and verified for both product purity and identity.
A Note on the Appearance of the Softgels: The Alpha-GPC softgels are produced by creating an emulsion with sunflower oil and Alpha-GPC, which is then loaded into the soft gels. This emulsion then breaks in the softgel, giving the softgels their characteristic separated and cloudy appearance. Rest assured however, this is totally normal, and actually helps keep the Alpha-GPC stable!
