What Is GPC Therapy?

GPC is a mixture of essential phospholipids made from (lecithin) soybeans. It is present in all our body cells, and as a nutrient, it has many functions in the body.

GPC was originally researched in Europe and is available in IV and capsule form. The most important effects of GPC is its remarkable ability to improve cognitive function, including memory and attention span, in people of various ages. It is also a major treatment in post-stroke patients.

GPC is also known as glycerophosphocholine, glycerylphoshorycholine, choline alfoscerate, or choline alphoscerate.


GPC has a truly profound involvement in the human biochemistry.

It provides a unique form of non-antioxidant protection for our body’s cells. It is a rare water-phase phospholipid which is the building block for the membranes that form and drives all cells.

Furthermore, GPC is a major source of the key nerve and muscle neurotransmitter acetylcholine, and is the body’s main reservoir of the essential nutrient choline, making GPC very important to the nervous system.

GPC readily crosses the blood-brain barrier to support numerous brain processes.

GPC is well absorbed into the blood stream, and circulates throughout all tissues, and has defined roles in the essential functions of many body systems including the autonomic nervous system, the reproductive system, the endocrine system, the skeletal muscles, and the kidney and liver systems.


The use of GPC over the years by chelation doctors worldwide has proven that GPC is extremely useful in helping patients with various conditions.

GPC's main therapeutic uses are:

  • Accelerates recovery of Stroke patients
  • Improves neurological deficits and motor capacity in Stroke patients
  • Improves cognitive function, memory, speech, behavior, and attention in Alzheimer's, Age-Related dementia, and even in vascular dementia patients. In these patients it can also reduce disorientation, dizziness and fatigue
  • Improves mental performance, word cell and working memory capacity in both young and middle-aged patients
  • Improves male fertility
  • Increases release of growth hormone(GH)
  • Improves liver function & health


  1. STROKE RECOVERY : GPC is documented in accelerating the recovery of focal neurological deficits including space time orientation, improved degree of consciousness, language, motor capacity, improved general wellbeing.

  2. ALZHEIMER'S & AGE-RELATED DEMENTIA : GPC improves cognitive function, such as orientation and language improved memory and attention, improvements in behavior and activities of daily living.

  3. VASCULAR DEMENTIA : GPC improves cognitive function, memory and attention, mood, reduced disorientation, irritability, emotional liability, and indifference to surrounding, reduced fatigue and dizziness.

  4. COGNITIVE FUNCTION IN YOUNG & MIDDLE-AGED PEOPLE : GPC improves mental performance, word cell, working memory capacity. Most other agents have not been successful in improving this group of patients with neurological deficits.

  5. MALE FERTILITY : GPC improves sperm mobility and endurance.

  6. GROWTH HORMONE : GPC increases release of growth hormone from the pituitary gland, and higher levels may improve physical endurance in sports.

  7. LIVER HEALTH : GPC can boost liver health by increasing lipotrophic choline and aids in the utilization and breakdown of foods and supplements.


Everyone that begins GPC IV Therapy will receive information about the therapy including an information brochure and will be informed to view our website for further information.

Each patient is also encouraged to read books on GPC such as GPC (GlyceroPhosphoCholine) Mind-Body Power for Active Living and Healthy Aging which is available at Amazon.com. This book, as well as books on Chelation Therapy, are also available at major bookstores.

Our clinic carries copies of “Forty Something Forever, A Consumer’s Guide to Chelation Therapy” and "Bypassing BYPASS Surgery".

Dr. Julian Whitaker's MD, Health & Healing Newsletter, had a great article on GPC called: "If you want to keep your mental edge and memory, you need to read this!"
