Alpha-glycerylphosphorylethanolamine (GPE) is a precursor of phospholipids (PLs) and and the acetylcholine neurotransmitter.
Brain aging involves changes in the lipid membrane composition that lead to a decrease in membrane excitability and neurotransmitter release. These membrane modifications have been identified as contributing factors in age-related memory decline.
GPE can contribute to restore the physiological composition of cellular membranes and produce valuable therapeutic effects in brain aging. It can be use a coadiuvant to sustain the cognitive functions compromised by aging.
Archimica’s GPE is obtained from Lecthycine extracted from soya through chromatografic purification and further crystallization to obtain the final API in powder.
