AlphaSize alpha-glyceryl phosphoryl choline (A-GPC), a highly bioavailable form of choline for cognitive health from Chemi Nutra (Austin, TX), met the requirements contained in the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) monograph. The nonprofit organization sets the standards for identity, strength, quality, and purity of medicines, food ingredients, and dietary supplements/ingredients. To earn USP status, a series of tests, procedures for the tests, and strict acceptance criteria related to purity and identity are implemented. 

“The USP monograph project took us several years to accomplish, and coupled with our FDA GRAS (GRN No. 419) status, and extensive published studies on efficacy, AlphaSize A-GPC is the only A-GPC ingredient in existence proven pure, unadulterated, safe, and beneficial,” said Scott Hagerman, president of Chemi Nutra, in a press release. “Now consumers can look for the ultimate assurance of quality and safety, as USP will now be indicated on finished product labels that bear the AlphaSize A-GPC brand name.”
