Patented ingredients are taking the supplement industry by storm and AlphaSize® is no exception. This patented ingredient from Chemi Nutra could very well be the missing link in your pre-workout repertoire. Sure, you have your pump products and stimulants but what AlphaSize brings to the table is something unique for those who truly want to take their training to the next level.
AlphaSize is the patented version of Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline or Alpha (A)-GPC and has been touted as one of the most effective and essential nutrients for the brain. On supplement labels, you may see the abbreviation A-GPC or it’s actual patented name. If you don’t see “AlphaSize” on the label, it’s not the version we are talking about in this article.
AlphaSize is a precursor to acetylcholine and phosphatidylcholine which can play an important role in cognition and overall mental performance. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that is responsible for communication between neurons (cell to cell) that can help attain peak mental and physical performance.
The reason why AlphaSize is so astounding is that it is incredibly bioavailable and able to cross the blood-brain barrier quickly to help increase choline levels. Choline is a key nutrient that aids in muscular contractions, memory and cognitive functioning, as well as the all-important regulation of your heartbeat (your lifeline).
Can you take in A-GPC by other means? Sure. Assuming you consume enough of them you could eat foods like eggs, meat, and beef liver. However, a much easier and more convenient means would be to supplement with a product that includes AlphaSize pre-workout to get the most from the A-GPC and elevate your training.
A LOT! While AlphaSize is primarily used in pre-workout products to help enhance both your mental and physical performance during training, the cognitive effects can be experienced all day long. This patented ingredient has been deemed safe to use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has a plethora of research and science to back up its claims.
Some may be wondering why you can’t use just any generic A-GPC supplement on the market? The answer is because AlphaSize is the only clinically researched A-GPC product that is highly bioavailable and does not result in a sudden crash once the effects wear off as many generic versions can.
While the mental performance benefits are vast, for the majority out there, the focus is on the physical performance benefits. There has been extensive research done on AlphaSize using a single dose at 600mg and looking at how it affected performance during exercise.
One study has found that AlphaSize can increase growth hormone levels and peak exercise capacity1.
Another study noted that through the use of this patented ingredient, those who engage in resistance training can enhance their lower body speed and strength2.
When training, choline becomes a limiting factor. If not enough is available, it can negatively affect your workout and peak performance by not forming acetylcholine to help with muscular contractions. AlphaSize is supplemented to help keep these levels and concentrations in check to enhance not only your physical performance but mental performance as well.
Through the use of AlphaSize, you can feel a stronger mind-muscle connection due to the cognitive boosting properties that allow you to increase your focus and concentration. Having a solid connection will help you fully contract the muscle, activating more muscle fibers and breaking them down so they can be rebuilt and grow back stronger.
Additionally, due to the increase in choline, you can increase the release of growth hormone. Why is this important? As we age, our growth hormone levels decline starting around the age of 30. When this happens, it can cause you to hold onto and store body fat as well as lose some of your hard-earned lean muscle tissue. With the potential increase in natural growth hormone production, you may find that you’re better able to manage your body fat levels and burn fat through an increase in metabolic rate, build lean muscle tissue, and speed up the recovery process following intense bouts of exercise where muscle fibers have been broken down.
Outside of training, who couldn’t use a little extra cognitive boost? AlphaSize can help you in the office, at school, at home, and throughout your daily life. With the ability to help you learn and process information, increase your focus, boost your memory and ability to recall information, and elevate your energy levels and mood can make AlphaSize the icing on the cake.
With so many benefits that can be experienced through the use of AlphaSize, it’s no wonder so many people are seeking out supplements that include it in their formulation.
By now your curiosity probably has you wondering what this patented ingredient can do for you and where it can take your workouts.
