- Alpha GPC is a natural choline compound found in the brain and other tissues that increase the levels of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that is involved in various cognitive functions such as learning, memory, and attention. It does this by providing a choline source for the body to use in the production of acetylcholine that is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and enter the brain, where it is rapidly converted into acetylcholine.
Aside from acetylcholine synthesis, Alpha GPC also supports the growth and repair of cell membranes and the production of human growth hormone levels.
The ability of Alpha GPC to support and improve cognitive function, learning, and memory has been observed in research involving various populations.
