Suggested Use: 3 capsules per day, in divided doses, with or between meals.
What Is It?
l-Alpha-glycerophophatidylcholine (GPC-choline, alpha-GPC) is a water-soluble phospholipid and neurotransmitter precursor naturally occurring in the body. Unlike most membrane phospholipids, alpha-GPC is water-soluble because it lacks the hydrophobic tail groups.
Uses For Alpha-GPC
• Memory And Cognitive Health: Alpha-GPC passes through the blood brain barrier providing a source of choline for acetylcholine and phosphatidylcholine biosynthesis. By supporting cell membrane fluidity and integrity, phosphatidylcholine enhances healthy neurotransmitter function and signal transduction. Alpha-GPC may support healthy phospholipid turnover in the brain, helping to counteract age-related cellular breakdown of membrane phospholipids. Acetylcholine is a key neurotransmitter in the brain supporting memory and learning. Optimal phospholipid and acetylcholine levels support cognitive, mental and cerebrovascular health.*
• Growth Hormone Support: Alpha-GPC has the ability to potentiate growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH), thereby supporting healthy growth hormone (GH) levels. The mechanism of support appears to involve increased cholinergic tone.*
What Is The Source?
Alpha-GPC is derived from highly purified soy lecithin. Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose. There is no detectable GMO material in this product.
