A precursor of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, alpha-GPC is used to treat Alzheimer’s disease, loss of cognitive function, and memory loss. Alpha-GPC, contrary to phosphatidylcholines, easily crosses the blood-brain barrier to improve brain cell health. Among athletes it has been shown that alpha-GPC increases endurance and performance. Acetylcholine is a major neurotransmitter involved in muscular contraction. Increased concentrations of this neurotransmitter result in increased muscle contraction ability and duration. An increase in acetylcholine increases the ability to recruit fast twitch muscle fibers.
Alpha-GPC can boost growth hormone production by stimulating the regeneration of pituitary gland functions.
Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid with a polar side group. It plays a role in the synthesis of catecholamines: epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine, and DOPA. It is also a precursor of melanin (the pigment that colours the skin, hair, and irises) and thyroid hormones (creation of thyronine from two tyrosines).
Acetyl-L-carnitine, an acetylated form of L-carnitine, is a natural byproduct of the lysine amino acid. Acetyl-L-carnitine easily passes through the hematoencephalic (blood-brain) barrier and is an antioxidant helpful in maintaining good health. Acetyl-L-carnitine is an amino acid known for its role in muscle growth and development, fat loss, increasing energy, and improving resistance to muscle fatigue. It can also reduce the sensation of hunger.
Loss of adipose tissue. Acetyl-L-carnitine plays a critical metabolic role in stimulating weight loss. It contributes to the movement of fatty tissues toward the mitochondria, where they are burned for energy.
Athletic performance and endurance.
Clinical studies have demonstrated that acetyl-L-carnitine improves athletic performance and endurance, by allowing a greater use of fat for energy, thereby diminishing the depletion of muscular glycogen. This, combined with a reduction of the accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles, can extend one’s ability to work out for longer periods.
