Alpha-GPC (alpha-glycerophosphocholine) is a member of choline-containing phospholipide family
(the other two are citicoline and phosphatidylcholine). Structurally, Alpha-GPC is comprised of
a choline group (a quaternary ammonium salt, containing a positively charged ammonium cation)
bound to a glycerol molecule via a phosphate group. This phosphate group is a quaternary-
substituted phosphorus atom connected to four oxygen atoms, two of which serve to bind the
choline, glycerol, and phosphate groups into a unified molecule, so Alpha-GPC could brakes down
into two key compound: choline and glycerophosphate.
Choline and its metabolites have three main physiological purposes: structural integrity and signaling
role for cell membranes as well as cholinergic neurotransmission. This process allows acetylcholine
to accumulate at higher levels than it otherwise would.
The other component, glycerophosphate, can also help with the production of cellular membranes.
Some studies have investigated the efficacy of alpha-GPC for cognitive disorders including stroke
and Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.
Physical effects include body control enhancement and stimulation (similar to those of caffeine),
while cognitive effects could include focus enhancement, memory and motivation enhancement,
dream potentiation and mindfullnes.
Alpha-PHC (C8H20NO6P, Mr 257g/mol) generally comes in the form of white or off-white water-
