Alpha-GPC Potentiates Growth Hormone

Alphagpc - SupplementNews.org:

"Alpha-GPC has been used over the past decade to enhance cognition and memory. The dietary supplementation of Alpha GPC has been studied as an alternative treatment in various age-related conditions, including dementia, and cerebrovascular and Alzheimer's disease. Its mechanism of action is by the potentiation of growth hormone from the hypothalamus. It is thought to be particularly useful for elderly individuals, as they exhibit lower secretions of growth hormone with age. It may also be beneficial for individuals who wish to increase muscle mass via increased secretion of growth hormone"
