GPC (GlyceroPhosphoCholine) and PS (PhosphatidylSerine) are phospholipid nutrients intensively researched for their benefits to diverse human brain functions.
These nutrients naturally complement each other: GPC reaches very high concentrations inside cells; PS is a building block for cell membranes that generate the brain’s energy and electricity. Numerous double-blind trials catalog the benefits of GPC and PS for people of all ages.
Natural Brain Enhancers combines the two nutrients best validated for supporting brain health and mental performance at any age. GPC (GlyceroPhosphoCholine) and PS (PhosphatidylSerine) are validated by 34 double-blind (DB) trials and hundreds of other human and animal studies.
GPC and PS are both phospholipid (fos-fo-lip-id) nutrients, essential to brain cell structure and function, but have differing molecular actions that naturally complement each other. GPC operates in the cell water phase (“cytoplasm”), while PS works within cell membranes. Both these nutrients are naturally present in all the cells of the body and are fundamental to life.
GPC, Vital For Mind and Body
GPC has been an important brain nutrient in Europe since the 1980s, and in North America since 1997. It has many important nutritional roles, including being the best dietary source of choline, recently confirmed to be a dietarily essential nutrient. It helps prevent tissue buildup of urea, a metabolic waste product. This is just part of GPC’s broader, very important osmotic function in helping to keep water pressures equalized between the cell’s interior and the outside environment. GPC, along with PS, is concentrated in human breast milk.
Revitalizes the Aging Brain
GPC has been subjected to many clinical trials with subjects older than 50 years. In 2001, a “meta-analysis” after pooling of the clinical data concluded that GPC was helpful for attention and memory in this aging population. A further meta-analysis in 2007 reconfirmed these findings. Data from over 1000 individuals assessed in several psychometric test systems showed that GPC offered support for mood and occasional fatigue in addition to attention, memory and other cognitive functions.
GPC can help revitalize the brain. In one large DB trial that involved 261 elderly subjects, GPC improved cognition, behavior and activities of daily living. In animal studies, GPC when given by mouth significantly supported brain circuits confronted with toxic chemical exposure or subjected to mechanical damage.
