Raw Alpha GPC (Choline Alfoscerate) powder (28319-77-9) Description
L-Alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine (alpha-GPC, choline alfoscerate) is a natural choline compound found in the brain. It is also a parasympathomimetic acetylcholine precursor which may have potential for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Raw Alpha GPC (Choline Alfoscerate) powder rapidly delivers choline to the brain across the blood–brain barrier and is a biosynthetic precursor of acetylcholine. It is a non-prescription drug in most countries.
In Europe alpha-GPC is a prescription medication for the treatment of Alzheimer s disease. In the United States alpha-GPC is only available as a dietary supplement, mostly in products promoted to improve memory.Other uses for alpha-GPC include treatment of various kinds of dementia, stroke, and “mini stroke” (transient ischemic attack, TIA).
