What is this?
Focus Supplements use a new proprietary technology to create an extremely pure form of Alpha GPC including ion-resin exchange (to remove minerals) and water purification. Their products are pure and 3rd party lab tested so you know exactly what you are taking.
GPC (glyceryl phosphoryl choline) is cholinergic meaning it can increase the levels of acetylcholine or choline in the brain. It is also a nootropic, several rodent studies have shed light on its potential effects on the brain such as increasing cognition, focus and alertness.
Choline is a precursor to the synthesis of membrane phospholipids (glycerolipids, glycerophospholipids, sphingolipids, saccharolipids, and polyketides) which are vital in supporting cell membrane structure and function, energy production, energy storage and increasing cholesterol solubility. There is building evidence to suggest that athletes may benefit from an ability to enhance growth hormone production, though more studies are required substantiate this claim.
Choline is usually produced in the liver from foods like eggs, meat and dairy and is key for maintaining structural integrity and signalling functions of the cell membrane. The neurotransmitter acetylcholine is used throughout the nervous system and is associated with mood and memory. High doses (1,200 mg) appear to be somewhat effective in mild Alzheimer’s disease when used with acetylcholinesterase inhibitors.
Some people take Alpha GPC alongside dietary fatty acids for absorption, however this does not appear to be an absolute requirement.
Focus supplements recommend taking 500mg-1000mg per day, please consult your doctor before taking any supplements especially during pregnancy.
