What is Alpha GPC?
Alpha GPC, also know as L-Alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine, is derived from by the chemical or enzymatic deacylation of phosphatidylcholine enriched soya phospholipids followed by chromatographic purification or from highly purified soy and sunflower lecithin and when ingested, rapidly delivers Choline to the brain. Now being studied for cognitive disorders like stroke and Alzheimer's, Alpha GPC has shown to help cognitive responses significantly.
How is Alpha GPC used in supplements?
We are starting to see more and more supplements use Alpha GPC, mostly in Pre Workouts, Weight loss supplements and of course cognitive supplements. Alpha GPC can give a very focused feeling and stimulate cognitive response, seemingly similar to what we see in the use of Huperzine A.
