NOW Alpha GPC is a bio-available and vegetarian source of L-alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine that is specially formulated to provide cognitive support and increase mental acuity.
Alpha GPC is a natural physiological precursor to the neurotransmitter responsible in memory retention and other brain functions - i.e. acetyl-choline. Compared to other choline forms, alpha GPC has greater bioavailability and has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier into the brain. Once it reaches neural tissues, e.g. the brain, this natural choline compound acts a cell membrane constituent.
Taking Alpha GPC formulas, such as NOW Alpha GPC, has been clinically studied to improve acetyl-choline synthesis in the brain, which results in better cognitive function and optimal mental acuity.
