L-Alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine, or Alpha GPC, is a phospholipid derivative found concentrated in important brain cell membranes. Alpha GPC supports cognitive function by improving the ability to synthesize acetylcholine, which has been linked to memory, focus and REM sleep states.
An extract from a plant in the clubmoss family (Huperzia serrata), Huperzine A is a naturally derived acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. Acetylcholinesterase (AchE) is responsible for the breakdown of acetylcholine. By effectively inhibiting AchE, more acetylcholine is made available.

Alpha Brain: The Clinical Study
The cognitive performance improvements of Alpha brain were analyzed by two double blind, randomized, placebo controlled trials performed at the Boston Center for Memory.
In total, 63 healthy subjects took part in the two trials and were directly studied for word recall, using the standardized CVLT protocol Alpha Brain was shown to improve verbal memory versus placebo.
