We analyzed all the different studies and anecdotal evidence on Alpha-GPC, and we loved how it has been shown to increase memory and even protect against age-related cognitive decline.

Everyone knows that as you get older, you just can’t remember things like you used to. As we age, our brains just aren’t as sharp as they used to be. For some people, this only provides little frustrations, like forgetting where you left the keys or missing an appointment, but for others, the damage can be far worse, leading to Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia. Until recently, age-related cognitive decline was accepted as a part of life, but some see hope in the form of Alpha-GPC, a nutrient featured in the new memory supplement Pure Prodigy.
According to the nootropics experts at NootropicStack.net, “Alpha-GPC is a precursor in the biosynthesis of neuronal cell phospholipids. It helps to increase acetylcholine in the brain. This is a chemical that is very important for memory and learning. When acetylcholine neurotransmission is interrupted, it can lead to age-related cognitive disorders, impairing your memory and processing. That’s why Alpha-GPC is so important. It makes acetylcholine more readily available.”
In one study entitled “Multicentre study of l-alpha-glyceryl-phosphorylcholine vs. ST200 among patients with probable senile dementia of Alzheimer's type” (March 1993, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/8477148), patients with probable senile dementia of Alzheimer’s type of mild to moderate degree were split into two groups – one taking Alpha-GPC, the other taking ST200. The study found that, “The results showed significant improvements in most neuropsychological parameters in the alpha GPC recipients. Improvements also occurred in the ST200 recipients but to a lesser extent.”
A 2003 double-blind trial of individuals with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s found that Alpha-GPC supplementation significantly improved a range of cognitive functions, including memory (http://www.wellnessresources.com/studies/alpha_gpc_helps_alzheimers_type_dementia).
“Every ingredient that we put in Pure Prodigy was carefully researched to make sure we put out the best brain support supplement possible,” said Jonathan Weisman, Owner of Pure Prodigy. “We analyzed all the different studies and anecdotal evidence on Alpha-GPC, and we loved how it has been shown to increase memory and even protect against age-related cognitive decline.”
