Dietary Supplement

Vegan

Alpha GPC (L-alphaglycerylphosphosphorylcholine, also known as choline alfoscerate) is a phospholipid metabolite found concentrated in neuronal membranes. Derived from lecithin, Alpha GPC is extremely well absorbed and crosses the blood brain barrier. In the brain Alpha GPC supports brain function and learning processes by directly increasing the synthesis and secretion of acetylcholine. Alpha GPC protects neurons and improves signal transmission by serving as a precursor to membrane phospholipids.

Each Jarrow Formula Alpha GPC 300 vegetarian capsule provides 300 mg of Alpha GPC.

Suggested Use

Take 1 to 2 capsules per day with a meal, or as directed by your qualified health care consultant.

Cognitive function, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Fibromyalgia,

From Sweden

If you take "Phosphatidyl serine" for you cognitive functions, add "Alpha GPC" together with "Neurozyme" for more complete protection and improvement. Improvement has been rapid for me. My memory and focus are better. Update: Now some more months have passed. I still take PS (Phospatidylserine) daily together with "Alpha GPC" and "Neurozyme". Let me give you an example of my improvement. I speak five languages since long. But fibromyalgia, diabetes, muscular atrophy and chronic fatigue syndrome made it impossible for me to study a sixth language. My brain was in a terrible state since many years. Now I can study again, I am now studying my sixth language. I think this is a miracle, because I can can actually remember things again. I do not have "black-outs" and put things in strange places or not remembering what I was just doing anymore. "Alpha GPC" boosts growth hormone naturally, if there is a need for it. I have "adult onset growth hormone deficiency" and I can see that I am "growing younger". Although I take many "fountain of youth"- superfoods like GOJI, ACAI, Pollen, Chlorella, Colostrum etc. I think "Alpha GPC" has been vital in getting my natural hair colour back. All grey hair strands are gone! It is amazing to see. Alpha GPC improves coordination and balance. This I can notice. I no longer lose my balance, and I can hold things without losing the grip and dropping them on the floor. No more broken cups and glasses.

Great for Insomnia

From Canada

Absolutely wonderful if you have insomnia! I decided to try Alpha GPC 300 for both memory and mood (and it has been good for that as well) but I realised that I can sleep so well taking this. I have had insomnia for 15 years (takes forever to fall asleep and hard to stay asleep), but since taking this, I have had not a single restless night and I feel better in so many ways because of it. By now, I could care less if it does help with mood and memory since it's such a good (and naturally derived) solution for insomnia...I will continue taking it for as long as necessary. Unfortunate aspect is that if you miss taking it one day (I take one pill a day), insomnia comes right back.

Brain boost

From New York

I'm using this for brain function enhancement, and so far so good, but I only started it a few days ago, so I can't comment fully on results yet. As with many brain supplements, it should probably take at least couple weeks before really seeing a difference. Still, I've done the research, and I'm excited for Alpha GPC to be part of my neurological protocol.

Mental clarity

From Nebraska

This product will help your mental clarity. You will notice your short term memory will hold a little longer. Useful product.

Good product

From Nevada

Alpha GPC seems to help my 87 year old mother think and speak better. I think it is more effective than plain choline.

Alpha GPC

From California

It's incredible, but the memory of things which I had lost has started to come back and I've only been taking GPC for 2 months. I highly recommend it. 

Alpha GPC

From Utah

I have been using alpha gpc for about 9 months. At first I began to notice increase ability to recall memories. I noticed a very mild headache, I believe from rebuilding of memory recall routes. These work really well.

Really works!

From California

I have tried several 'improve memory' products that never did the job. Jarrow, Alpha GPC actually works. I can remember things more easily, more often, and more difficult things. I am a teacher and can now learn the students names and remember them. I take 2 capsules twice a day and find that is the right amount for me. I love this product - it has changed my life.

Alpha GPC

 

L-Alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine (alpha GPC, choline alfoscerate) is a choline compound naturally found in the human body and in dietary sources such as milk and soy.  It is concentrated in the brain, especially in neuronal membranes, where it acts as a precursor to phosphatidylcholine. Phosphatidylcholine, despite often being referred to in the singular, is actually a class of phospholipids that contain an invariable alpha GPC moiety and two variable fatty acids.   In the nervous system, phosphatidylcholines play important roles in membrane fluidity and membrane-mediated cellular signaling processes.  

 

Alpha GPC also provides choline for the synthesis of acetylcholine (ACh), an important neurotransmitter involved in many functions in both the central and peripheral nervous systems.  In the central nervous system, ACh is critical to the overarching processes of attention, focus, and plasticity that undergird learning and memory.  Alpha GPC is readily absorbed in the digestive tract and effectively passes the blood-brain barrier.   Clinical research utilizing alpha GPC has concentrated on functional cognitive effects and neuronal protection.*

 

Cognitively Alpha

 

A good amount of alpha GPC research has involved simulating cognitive decline and memory impairment in humans through the administration of scopolamine, a renowned compound found in species of the nightshade family, and determining the protective effects of alpha GPC.  This is a useful model because scopolamine depletes acetylcholine stores, inducing a transitory cognitive impairment similar to that observed in normal aging.  In vitro and animal studies have suggested that alpha GPC enhances hippocampal cholinergic transmission (critical for memory) by increasing acetylcholine synthesis and release.*

 

In one study, thirty-two healthy, young volunteers received either 1200mg/day of alpha GPC or placebo for 10 days and also received either scopolamine bromidrate or placebo on day 11.  Those who received alpha GPC and scopolamine showed significant benefits to attention and recall performance compared to those who received placebo and scopolamine.* Interestingly, even those who received alpha GPC but not scopolamine showed significant enhancement of recall performance compared to those who received neither alpha GPC nor scopolamine.*

F O R M U L A S

 

In another double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 48 young men and women were administered 1200mg/day alpha GPC, idebenone, aniracetam, or placebo for 7 days. Idebenone and aniracetam are known cognitive stimulants.  On day 8, subjects received scopolamine.  Alpha GPC enhanced learning, working memory, and long-term verbal memory, and the effects were significantly better than those seen with idebenone, aniracetam, or placebo usage.*

 

Generates Protection Cortically*

 

When choline availability declines, cholinergic cells go through autocannibalism to withdraw choline from phosphatidylcholine. However, when the choline or phosphatidylcholine supply is not replenished, cells lose their ability to efficiently communicate due to the loss of membrane phospholipids that are critical for signal transduction and normal cellular functions. Supplementation of alpha GPC can help replenish both choline and phosphatidylcholine, which help maintain healthy neuronal membranes and neurotransmitter production.*

 

In one study, animals given alpha GPC were observed to display adaptive and reparative reactions such as an increased number of ribosomes and hypertrophy of endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi complex. Furthermore, the structures of the nuclear membranes and cellular organelles were better preserved compared to animals given the common nootropic agent piracetam.  In addition, in vitro work using human brain slices has found that alpha GPC inhibits lysophospholipase, thus modulating membrane phospholipid breakdown and protecting neuronal cells from self-degradation.*

 

Brain Bioavailability

 

The pharmacokinetic profile of oral alpha GPC has been investigated in male and female rats given alpha GPC radio-labeled with either 14C-glycerol or 14C-choline.  Hours after ingestion, both species were found concentrated in the brain.  Furthermore, the labeled choline was observed in brain phospholipids within 24 hours of dosing. Excretion of labeled alpha GPC was minimal and comparable for both forms.  These results suggest that oral alpha GPC is well absorbed, efficiently crosses the blood brain barrier, and concentrates in the brain.*
