Overview

Alpha-GPC (AKA choline alfoscerate or alpha-glyceryl-phosphorylcholine) is an extremely bio-available source of choline. Studies have found that Alpha-GPC has a therapeutic benefit to those suffering from cognitive difficulties following stroke and Alzheimer’s disease. After easily crossing the blood brain barrier Alpha-GPC has been shown to act as a parasympathomimetic acetylcholine precursor, meaning it is able to effectively boost levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Higher levels of acetylcholine have been shown to aid in memory, sensory perception and in sustaining attention. Acetylcholine is also an important neuromodulator implicated in arousal, reward and neural plasticity. Many nootropics, especially racetam nootropics, require large amounts of acetylcholine which can be provided by Alpha-GPC.

 

Key Findings

Shown to improve mood, ability to learn and memory.[1]

Healthy pregnancies require sufficient levels of Choline.[6][7][8]

Shown to help those suffering from alcoholism.[5]

 

Description


As Alpha-GPC is a source of choline the majority of the information regarding its action is based upon the actions of choline and ultimately the actions of acetylcholine within the brain.

Acetylcholine is vital for memory and acts as an important neuromodulator. Acetylcholine has been shown as an essential neurotransmitter involved in the enhancement of sensory perception when we wake up, and while sustaining attention.

Due to the fact that many nootropics work by actively using acetycholine, it is extremely important to have an abundance within your system to benefit from other nootropics. This is particularly true for Noopept and the racetam family, which owe much of their nootropic action to the use of acetylcholine.

Choline has been shown to enhance learning and memory in animal studies.[1]

Choline has been used as an effective treatment in Bi-Polar (Manic Depressive) disorder.[4]

Further studies have proven choline to be effective in treating Alzhiemer’s due to its acetylcholine action,[3] and in treating liver disease.[2]

Choline is widely regarded as an important supplement in pregnancy, and subsequent successful delivery without certain complications.[6][7][8]
