Purified for Enhanced Absorption and Bio-Availability
Cerebra GPC is a 100 % purified source of water soluble L-Alpha Glycerophosphocholine. Water solubility enables Cerebra to pass the blood brain barrier more quickly, increasing blood choline levels and making it an effective neuro nutrient.
Cerebra GPC enhances cholinergic metabolic functions such as neurological and mental performance.
Addtionally, aGPC is considered a Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone and is widely used by professional athletes, body builders, elite runners and ultra endurance athletes to enhance muscle activity and recovery.
What is Cerebra GPC?
Cerebara GPC is a 100 percent purified source L-Alpha-Glycerophosphocholine (GPC), an orthomolecular compound found naturally in the brain, where it serves as an acetylcholine precursor. Derived from soya lecithin, GPC is not a phospholipid; it is a phospholipid-derived substance.
Cerebra-GPC is 100% Purified PhosChol with the fatty acids removed. It is a simple formulation of purified GPC and water, which comes together as a clear, concentrated, sweet tasting solution that is easy to administer to adults and children.
GPC is a safe, stable, and rapidly absorbed source of free choline, which easily enters the brain and has many functions in the body. It is important for the structural integrity of cell membranes, cholinergic neurotransmission, transmembrane signalling, methyl metabolism, and lipid-cholesterol transport and metabolism. Choline is a precursor for phosphatidylcholine, sphingomyelin, platelet-activating factor, betaine, and other phospholipids.
A Positive Influence on Neurotransmission
Acetylcholine decline coincides with advancing age, and is a hallmark of neurodegenerative disease. Even in the absence of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia, aging brains lose cholinergic receptors; structures within the nerves that receive and propagate the messages transmitted by acetylcholine.
Evidence suggests that by increasing levels of acetylcholine in the brain, cognitive deficits and brain structure changes related to ageing may be reversed. GPC is believed to prevent and ameliorate dementia, memory loss and learning difficulties because it accelerates the biosynthesis of acetylcholine and phosphatidylcholine.
Additionally, GPC may protect and facilitate communication between nerves through its effect on receptors for nerve growth factor. GPC has been shown to stimulate the release of the neurotransmitter, GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid). And, administration of GPC was influential in making more GABA available to brain cells.
In various studies, GPC has been directly compared to some popular nootropic substances such as oxiracetam and acetyl-L-carnitine. Cognitive improvement among GPC patients was similar to those seen in patients taking oxiracetam. Tests directly comparing the GPC to acetyl-L-carnitine demonstrated that GPC delivers superior cognitive benefits.
Supplementation of GPC provides a good source of safe, stable, and readily absorbed choline for enhancing cholinergic metabolic functions such as neurological and mental performance. GPC should be considered as an essential nutrient in any integrated anti-ageing and/or brain restoration protocol.
At this time there are no known side effects, contraindications or interactions. Ingredients are GRAS and should be well tolerated even with long term use.
