What is Alphasize?

Posted by MRI Performance on Mar 4th 2020

AlphaSize®, also a choline compound, is rapidly absorbed to engage your mind from first rep to last lift.*

AlphaSize® Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline (A-GPC), is an advanced choline compound that is able to enhance brain metabolism which other choline sources cannot because they don’t cross the brain barrier.

AlphaSize A-GPC is used for improving focus, memory, cognitive performance and sports performance.

Because of its compounded form, AlphaSize A-GPC is considered a choline donor with higher bioavailability than other choline sources.

It has been shown to increase acetylcholine levels in the brain and considered a brain nutrient.

AlphaSize A-GPC and Training

AlphaSize A-GPC is useful for focus in training. You have likely heard ‘mind to muscle’ and this is where AlphaSize A-GPC comes into play. If your brain is able to focus more, your output is also more focused.

AlphaSize A-GPC also plays a role in triggering motor unit activations of muscle fibers and contractions, actualizing mind to muscle philosophies.

Paired with its ability to delay brain fatigue, you can stay motivated and interested longer while working out.

How Does AlphaSize A-GPC Work?

Choline is an essential nutrient for phospholipids in the body and goes through a process called acetylation. Acetylation converts choline into acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system responsible for neuron communication.

AlphaSize A-GPC crosses the blood-brain barrier to increase choline levels directly in the brain to provide more resources to produce acetylcholine. It provides a quickly absorbed form of choline proven to increase free plasma choline more quickly than other choline sources. The result triggers improved cognitive functioning quickly.

In addition, choline enhances the secretion of HGH, human growth hormone, which regulates basal metabolism.

In addition, through sophisticated metabolic processes, choline potentiates the secretion of human growth hormone (HGH), a master hormone that in part regulates basal metabolism and hence body composition.

As we age, the amount of HGH we produce steadily declines. It is well accepted that by age 60, serum HGH levels can often be 1/10th of the HGH levels seen at age 25. Like other hormones critical to the functioning of the body, HGH diminishes with advancing age in similar fashion as many other important hormones.

With this marked decline, aging populations may experience diminished vitality and recovery, losses in muscle mass, increases in fat mass, and disruptive sleep patterns.

AlphaSize® A-GPC is considered to be an effective "GH secretagogue", and therefore has potential to be one of the most significant agents to help maintain healthful body composition, help retain lean muscle mass and strength, help reduce fat mass, and help maintain youthful vigor.

During intense exercise, stress and physical activity, choline becomes a limiting factor in the formation of AC, the motor unit’s primary neurotransmitter, thus diminishing AC release at the neuromuscular junction and negatively affecting peak performance.

Per the makers of AlphaSize A-GPC

“o Improvement in key brain functions, including memory, concentration, learning, recall, and focus.

o Promotes formation of acetylcholine (AC), a vital neurotransmitter compound involved in all key brain functions and mental sharpness.

o Helps speed cell to cell communication through neuromuscular optimization, providing enhanced muscular power output and agility for active and athletic individuals.

o Physiological production and maintenance of human growth hormone (HGH), the body’s master hormone for maintaining youth, vitality, and body composition.”

Because of this, MRI Performance chose AlphaSize for its Black Powder reformulation to lock and load focus to help with your results.
