Last month, we talked about Alpha GPC and the side effects that you need to be aware of. We told you about how and why you should be taking Alpha GPC as well as the good and bad side effects that you need to be aware of. Before continuing on, we implore that you read that particular blog post so that you know exactly what you are getting yourself in to and how much more Alpha GPC you need to purchase. We say “how much more” because our Fulcrum product already enhances the Alpha GPC levels in your system as it’s unlikely you’ve been able to read this blog without buying in to the Fulcrum product line, as successful and enticing as it is!
What is Alpha GPC?
Using Alpha GPC to exponentially improve the quality of workout you’re receiving by enhancing the other ingredients in your pre-workout shake is something everybody in the body building and fitness worlds should be practicing 
. That said, if you’re going to be ingesting high levels of Alpha GPC, it’s probably a good idea to understand what it is.
Often used in medicine, Alpha GPC is a chemical released during the synthesis and breakdown of fatty acids found in plants like soy. Since its derived from soy and other plants, it’s widely considered to be a generally recognized as safe drug by the United States government. Unless you have some sort of allergen, it’s almost 100% unlikely for a user to experience a life threatening side effect.
Where to Buy Alpha GPC?
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the fact that it is not suggested you purchase extra supplementation if you’re already using the Fulcrum product line. If you ARE enjoying Vaxxen’s Fulcrum mix, the levels of Alpha GPC and other ingredients have been carefully measured and formulated to help achieve the best possible results for our users. If you ARE NOT using Fulcrum for some reason, we suggest you take a look at the more reputable sellers. Don’t just buy the cheapest option you see on Amazon. Do your due diligence and look for Alpha GPC in capsule or powder form from a trustworthy site or reseller like GNC.
What to Buy
Capsules, tablets, powders… it really is going to come down to personal preference. Some users struggle to swallow pills of any kind. Others aren’t crazy about adding yet another ingredient to their already crowded workout mix. A considerable amount of people just choose whatever method best meets their price point. It really doesn’t matter so long as you’re not wasting your money on a product that isn’t going to do anything for you.
Make sure you’re looking at reviews on one of those reputable websites or at a reseller like we discussed earlier. Have other users that came before you seen favorable results? What complaints did they have? Avoid buying something from a company that has no reviews. In this particular industry, there is a good chance that it’s from a less than credible manufacturer in a developing country half way across the world. Why risk it? It’s YOUR body!
