What Are Alpha-GPC Capsules?
Alpha-GPC, a natural choline source found in the brain, also known as alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine and choline alfoscerate. Alpha-GPC is one of if not the most efficient choline source supplement with superior bioavailability. Recent studies suggest that the supplementation of Alpha-GPC may improve athletic performance, primarily in power output during exercise.
Alpha-GPC Benefits & Uses May Include:
- Supports Enhanced Cognitive Function†
- Supports Enhanced Memory Recall†
- Supports Improved Power Output†
How Do Alpha-GPC Capsules Work?
Alpha-GPC is a chemical released when the fatty acid of soy and plants breaks down. Alpha-GPC, a biosynthetic precursor of acetylcholine neurotransmitters, crosses the blood-brain barrier more readily. Alpha-GPC is regarded as one of the best sources of Choline as a nootropic, and it functions by increasing the amount of available Choline in the body. This Choline then naturally converts to and influences the production of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a powerful neurotransmitter, which releases from nerve cells or neurons, that is responsible for learning, memory, and other critical functions both relating to cognition and the endocrine system. Not only is this chemical accountable for learning and memory, but it also plays a significant role in REM sleep, or Rapid Eye Movement, the movement of muscles, and the signaling of pain. Acetylcholine operates as an activator and an inhibitor in the nervous system as well as the central nervous system. Subsequently, in the central nervous system, it prevents the activating of the chlorogenic system. Furthermore, acetylcholine also operates in the peripheral nervous system, wherein it allows for the contraction of the skeletal muscles.
