Chemical Information
FooDB NameL-1-glycero-3-phosphocholine
DescriptionCholine alfoscerate, also known as glycerophosphocholine or choline glycerophosphate, is a member of the class of compounds known as glycerophosphocholines. Glycerophosphocholines are lipids containing a glycerol moiety carrying a phosphocholine at the 3-position. Choline alfoscerate is slightly soluble (in water) and a moderately acidic compound (based on its pKa). Choline alfoscerate can be found in a number of food items such as radish, strawberry guava, yellow pond-lily, and pepper (c. baccatum), which makes choline alfoscerate a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products. L-Alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine (alpha-GPC, choline alfoscerate) is a natural choline compound found in the brain. It is also a parasympathomimetic acetylcholine precursor which may have potential for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias .
