Source Naturals - Alpha GPC Glycerylphosphorylcholine 285 mg. - 60 Capsules
Source Naturals Alpha GPC supports cognitive function. Clinical research in humans and animals has demonstrated that GPC (L-alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine) helps support higher brain function, mental acuity, and the release of human growth hormone. Source Naturals Alpha GPC is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and the membrane constituent phosphatidylcholine. Research suggests that Source Naturals Alpha GPC is more bioavailable than other forms of choline for the maintenance of learning and memory.
Source Naturals Alpha GPC addresses the following body systems
It is well known that our genes, consisting of DNA, hold the information codes for all of our unique traits, and they regulate all of the structure and function of our tissues and organs. Encoded in the DNA, and "turned on" by hormones or other messengers, are the mechanisms that produce the proteins, enzymes, and other compounds that the cell uses to carry out its differentiated functions. Even though each cell contains every gene for all bodily and mental functions, each cell has the ability to activate only those specific genes needed for that cell's specific function; the other genes remain silent or inactive. Various nutrients, plant extracts, and biochemical compounds can be seen as messengers. We can literally send instructions to our genes to perform healthy activities such as increase memory, burn fat, strengthen an immune response, or turn off gene expression that is detrimental to our health.
- Cognition / Nerves
The human brain is the most complex structure known to man; much of how it functions and enables us to think, feel, contemplate abstract concepts, plan our future, and control many bodily processes is yet to be discovered. The function of the brain and nervous system is based on the unique structure of nerve cells (also called neurons), which take in and send out messages in the form of electrical impulses running through the phospholipids and minerals of the cell membranes. Although it is only two percent of our body weight, the brain consumes 20 percent of our energy. Neurotransmitters, brain chemicals that pass messages from one neuron to another, must be produced in adequate quantities to support mood, intelligence, concentration, assertiveness and calmness. This creates a tremendous need for nutritional fuel and energy. Brain functioning can be significantly improved by the right quantity and quality of nutrients.
- Structure / Connective Tissue
Our bodies are a stunning organization of various types of connective tissues. In the form of cartilage and bones, they uphold our bodies; in the form of joints, they allow our mobility; in the form of epidermal tissues - the skin - they form the body's mass and protect us from and connect us to, our environment. As we age, many people experience calcium deficiencies and bone problems. Similarly, joint problems are among the most debilitating aspects of aging. Yet with the proper nutrients and lifestyle changes, the bones and joints can remain strong, flexible, and active well into old age. Likewise, healthy, beautiful skin is a matter of diet and nutrition: the skin should be nourished with fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins, and a nutritious diet gives the skin sufficient nutrients and antioxidants for protection.
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual's potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn't exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula™, now the industry's #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple™, Mega-Kid Multiple™, Inflama-Rest™, the Skin Eternal™ line, Higher Mind™, Essential Enzymes™, Male Response™, and more.
Source Naturals' comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas™ help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals' nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today's Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
