what is choline?
- choline is an isolated nutrient and the building block to acetylcholine; a chemical in the brain which is released when conducting cogntive task such as memory retention or learning.
- food derived choline can’t cross the blood-brain-barrier alone. It requires a specific carrier mechanism that transports free choline across the blood-brain barrier at a rate that is proportional to serum choline concentration.
choline is an isolated nutrient and the building block to acetylcholine; a chemical in the brain which is released when conducting cognitive tasks such as memory retention or learning.
choline is the precursor to acetylcholine; a chemical messenger in the brain which is essential for cognitive functioning. Boosting your choline levels can contribute to improved memory retention, learning and focus. [1, 2]
alpha GlycerylPhosphorylCholine (GPC) is an isolated nutrient which naturally occurs in the brain. Supplementation has been shown to:
- improve memory and learning ability [3,4,5]
- restore the bioavailability of acetylcholine [8,9]
- increase nerve growth factor receptors in the brain  and slow down undesirable structural changes in the brain [11,12]
- counteract brain ageing by increasing cholinergic receptors [6,7]
- counter the age-related loss of nerve cells and fibers in the brain 
food derived choline, choline bitartrate and choline citrate are unable to cross the blood brain barrier on their own. Citicoline (CDP Choline) and Alpha GPC can cross the blood brain barrier however, CDP choline is only 18.5% choline by weight compared to 40% of Alpha GPC
