Alpha-GPC or L-Alpha-glycerophosphocholine (aGPC), as the name suggests, is a choline-containing phospholipid isolated from soy. It is a natural compound that can perform well with other nootropics. Alpha GPC works effectively to deliver choline to the brain and stimulate acetylcholine production along with cell membrane phospholipids. The compound’s role in releasing dopamine and calcium and supporting memory formation is being researched.
Alpha GPC Benefits
Over the past few decades, Alpha-GPC has become a focus of research on age-related memory decline and other causes of memory dysfunction. Though more evidence is needed to be conclusive on this compound’s effectiveness, many people use it to improve symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, stroke, and other conditions. More recent studies have also begun exploring the role of Alpha GPC powder in athletic performance.
How Does It Work?
Alpha-GPC seems to increase a brain chemical called acetylcholine. This brain compound is crucial for memory and learning functions.
