Our focus at No Pain, No Gain is obviously fitness and bodybuilding. As much as we love to improve our muscles and physical strength, we also realize there is a huge lump of mass in our head we must focus on as well. Our brain is an important part of our system and when we can do something to help both the brain and the body, it seems like a win for everyone.
The drug we are going to talk about today might not seem like a magic pill (and indeed it isn’t), but it is actually an effective tool for people who are trying to improve their cognitive performance AND get stronger lifts while in the gym. Today we are talking about alpha GPC, which is a choline source that can be found in many dietary forms and supplements as well.
What Makes Alpha GPC Special?
The main reason why alpha GPC is special is because it is helpful for breaking down into raw choline in the brain. This choline becomes acetylcholine, which is a brain chemical and neurotransmitter associated with memory formation and learning. If you are trying to enhance your learning ability, one of the best ways to do this is to use alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine (the other name for alpha GPC).
There are many benefits of using alpha GPC, but it is one of the peculiar drugs that shows benefits for both cogntiive performance AND strength output. Some studies in Florida showed that athletes using alpha GPC could improve strength and performance. You will find that alpha GPC enhances memory and strength so just make sure you are using it wisely.
One way to use it wisely is to make sure the alpha GPC is paired together with a racetam, such as aniracetam. The aniracetam smart drug is part of the racetam family and has a number of positive benefits that you would be well-advised to use to your advantage. Aniracetam is one of Dave Asprey’s favorite drugs and it is a powerful stimulant for many people.
