Description

Supports Cognitive Function during Aging 

Alpha-GPC, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, supplies 250 mg of glycerophosphocholine, a nutrient important for neurological health, in each vegetarian capsule.

Glycerophosphocholine (also, referred to as alpha-GPC, and alpha-glycerophosphatidylcholine) is a water-soluble pro-phospholipid found in high quantities in adult tissue and breast milk. While not a true phospholipid, the body can convert it readily into phosphatidylcholine, the most abundant phospholipid found in the body. Glycerophosphocholine also plays important roles in the synthesis of acetylcholine and the attachment of phosphatidylcholine to DHA (docosahexaenoic acid, an essential fatty acid).*

 

 

Features

  • Helps support memory and proper cognitive function*
  • Helps support growth hormone releasing hormone production*


Benefits

  • In studies conducted on healthy, young adults, glycerophosphocholine offered significant protection against medication-induced memory loss and helped to enhance baseline mental performance
  • Glycerophosphocholine also has the ability to support growth hormone releasing hormone production, which in turn can promote proper growth hormone levels
  • Human studies indicate that glycerophosphocholine may play important roles in maintaining neurological health
  • In middle-aged and elderly adults, glycerophosphocholine supports memory and proper cognitive function

 

Indications

Alpha-GPC may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals wishing to support healthy cognitive and mental functioning.*

Alpha-GPC, also known as alpha-glycerophosphocholine, is a phospholipid-like compound found in all tissues of the body, including the brain. Alpha-GPC can be readily converted to phosphatidylcholine, the most abundant phospholipid found in the body. In the brain, this is especially important as phosphatidylcholine plays an important role in cellular signaling and the synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. As phospholipid metabolites change throughout normal aging processes, Alpha-GPC helps maintain cognitive function during aging. Randomized control trials have found that Alpha-GPC supplementation helps mental focus, recall, attention and cognitive function in both middle aged and elderly adults. Alpha-GPC is also a source of choline for the maintenance of good health. In addition to its role in the brain, choline has been found to have numerous biological functions in the body including involvement in methylation and cellular signaling pathways.
