The Advantages of GPC Therapy
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.
Alzheimer’s and Age Related Dementia: GPC improves cognitive function, such as orientation and language improved memory and attention, improvements in behavior and activities of daily living.
Vascular Dementia: GPC improves cognitive function, memory and attention, mood, reduced disorientation, irritability, emotional liability, and indifference to surrounding, reduced fatigue and dizziness.
Cognitive Function in Young and 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.
Male Fertility: GPC improves sperm mobility and endurance.
Growth Hormone: GPC increases release of growth hormone from the pituitary gland, and higher levels may improve physical endurance in sports.
Liver Health: GPC can boost liver health by increasing lipotrophic choline and aids in the utilization and breakdown of foods and supplements.
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.
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.
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
GPC Therapy FAQ
Each IV treatment takes about 2 ½ hours and is given with the patient seated in a comfortable recliner chair, in which they can read, work on a laptop, or visit with their neighbour. Depending on the patient’s condition, it is usually recommended that an initial course of 20 to 30 weekly or bi-weekly treatments be taken. After that, monthly booster treatments are recommended to maintain the benefits originally gained by the first series of treatments.
It should be noted that GPC therapy is NOT Chelation, as it does not remove toxic heavy metals. However, when GPC is used in conjunction with EDTA chelation even greater results can be attained.
GPC and chelation are both enhanced when used with a total nutritional program including professional supplements, and the adaptation of an individualized diet. Other lifestyle modifications that are encouraged are exercise, stress management, minimal use of caffeinated and alcohol beverages and the elimination of tobacco.
