choline glycerophosphate(alpha-GPC, choline alfoscerate) is a naturalcholine compound found in the brain and in milk. It is also a Acetylcholine’s precursor which may have potential for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Alpha-GPC is also used as a nootropic dietary supplement to enhance memory and cognition.

Why need GPC?
Glycerophospho choline (GPC) is a water-soluble small molecule that normally exists in the human body, and is the biosynthetic precursor of the important neurotransmitter Acetylcholine (Acetylcholine). The most important role of GPC is that the choline produced by it is a water-soluble vitamin B family, which has an important effect on the brain and nervous system. Studies have shown that GPC has an important effect on the production of certain hormones and neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine and human growth hormone. This supports the function of the brain and nervous system.
Glyceryl phosphorylcholine (GPC) is miscible with water, soluble in methanol, ethanol, insoluble in chloroform, ether, oil, etc., and has no characteristic absorption under UV-visible light. GPC content determination methods include high performance liquid chromatography and digestive phosphorus determination method.
It not only provides the high levels of choline needed by brain cells and nerve cells, but also protects their cell walls.
Patients with Alzheimer's disease are mainly manifested as memory and cognitive decline, and are accompanied by a variety of complications, such as inconvenience, nervous system disorders and other functional disorders.
Both clinical pharmacological test results and clinical trials have confirmed that glycerophosphocholine is very helpful to the cognitive ability and memory function of the brain.
Glycerophosphocholine has been marketed in Italy, Poland, Greece, Chile, South Korea, Brazil, Russia and other countries.
