Alpha GPC is one of the best choline supplements currently available, delivering choline to the brain quickly and efficiently. However, it is plagued with one major issue which is that it is incredibly hygroscopic. This means that Alpha GPC sucks moisture out of the air. Due to this, Alpha GPC will quickly clump up before eventually turning into a gel. While there are some methods to prevent this from happening, there is not a foolproof way to ensure stability. This softgel formulation however is practically foolproof and should ensure the greatest degree of stability and usability. Additionally, Alpha GPC is highly soluble in water. This allows us to achieve a meaningful concentration of Alpha GPC dissolved in a softgel capsule.
Alpha GPC softgels are very versatile and can be used for a wide variety of benefits and uses. The most common application is as a way to boost overall choline levels. Choline deficiencies are becoming increasingly common and are usually corrected by eating high choline foods such as eggs. However, the issue with relying on food for choline is two-fold:
However, with Nootropics Depot's Alpha GPC softgels you are getting an accurate and consistent dose of highly bioavailable choline that will readily make it to the brain.
This bring us to the second benefit of an Alpha GPC supplement which is it ability to act as an add-on or stand-alone cognitive enhancer. By promoting brain choline levels, we can enhance acetylcholine production in the brain. Acetylcholine is one of the most important neurotransmitters when it comes to learning and memory. In addition to this, free brain choline can also directly activate the Alpha-7 Nicotinic Acetylcholine receptors. Activation of these receptors strongly regulates inflammation in the brain, which can have a direct cognitive-enhancing effect.
The final benefit of Alpha GPC softgels is that it may promote physical strength. Studies have shown that taking an Alpha GPC supplement prior to exercise can increase power output. The mechanism behind this is still not entirely understood, however, there is some evidence indicating that Alpha GPC enhances growth hormone response to exercise which could be behind the increase in strength.
As a dietary supplement, take two Alpha GPC softgels daily.
