Alpha GPC is a choline containing nootropic compound with many anecdotal reports indicating it can improve both physical and cognitive performance. One previous study measured the acute effects of Alpha GPC on mood and cognitive function and found it to be beneficial. Another study found that Alpha GPC administration increased the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in learning and memory. In athletes, Alpha GPC limits exercise-induced reductions in choline levels and increases endurance performance.
