Alpha GPC (L-alphaglycerylphosphorylcholine, 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.*
