Alpha-GPC is a choline-containing nootropic compound with much anecdotal evidence suggesting it may help with both athletic and cognitive performance, and one study shows Alpha-GPC powder to benefit Alzheimer’s and stroke patients.
Alpha GPC (full name L-Alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine and commonly known as choline alfoscerate) is a great natural nootropic that can stack well with other nootropics but does a good job by itself. It can be naturally found in the body but you can also find it in supplements and your food. While it can be found in food you’ll find that you get more Alpha GPC from supplements than you do from dairy products and wheat germ.
When you first start taking Alpha GPC it is recommended that you take between 300 and 600mg. If you find that you need a little more you can always take more as the nootropic is well tolerated. Splitting up to 1200mg into two doses a day has been shown to be effective and safe, but always make sure that you start out small and build up as you need to.
Alpha GPC makes for a great choline source for stacks. It works particularly well with racetams. The best Alpha GPC stack involves mixing the supplement with Aniracetam and Noopept. This stack is designed to improve your cognition and it involves combining 300mg of Alpha GPC with 10mg of Noopept and 800mg of Aniracetam once or twice a day.
