Brain Health: GPC vs Choline


#1

Dr. Jonny Bowden recommends GPC (same as Biotests Alpha GPC), but Power Drive that I already use sometimes contains phosphotidylcholine, which is supposed to be for brain functioning as well.

Are they essentially the same for brain health, or is there a reason why taking the 2 individually could be beneficial?


#2

<< Not an expert, but I would think that the outcome is the same, i.e. increase ACh, but one may have a higher conversion or use a different pathway, but I can't confirm any of this, just deriving.


#3

FWIW I take gpc before working out and a small dose of phosphotidylcholine afterward and feel great.


#4

yeah agreed. I like GPC/caffeine before, Power Drive after.
