Alpha GPC (choline alfoscerate) is a compound with a clinically proven nootropic effect. Alpha GPC is a source of bioavailable choline, it penetrates the blood-brain barrier, and thus in an effective and real way contributes to the increase of acetylcholine synthesis in the brain. In addition, it is invaluable support in the reconstruction of damaged nerve cells, which translates into improved cognitive functions.
Alpha-GPC activates the parasympathetic system (relaxing, calming), raises the level of GABA (inhibitory neurotransmitter) and growth hormone (GH, regenerating hormone), reduces the adrenergic activity (sympathetic nervous system). As a result of these actions, it eliminates the effects of stress and irritability. It causes a calming, anti-stress and relaxing effect. It has a beneficial effect on the regeneration of the nervous system. Therefore, it is best to take this remedy before bedtime or rest.
Alpha GPC is the best precursor of acetylcholine.
Acetylcholine is an ester of acetic acid and choline and is the basic neurotransmitter of the cholinergic system, which is responsible for the rest and proper course of digestive processes. This substance is responsible for the transmission of nerve impulses and proper reception of stimuli from the environment, both external and internal, as well as a fundamental role in maintaining concentration and attention, the process of learning, creating memory traces and their recalling.
