Chemi Nutra Files Novel Patent Application For Alpha-GPC Specialty Ingredient

Austin, TX – Chemi Nutra announces the filing of a novel patent related to its proprietary AlphaSize® Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline (A-GPC) and its use in replacing, displacing, or augmenting caffeine and providing superior physiological benefits, without caffeine’s detrimental mental and physical effects.

Scott Hagerman, president of Chemi Nutra said, “This patent filing demonstrates Chemi’s commitment to the nutritional supplement and beverage industries, and is supported by research studies that collectively demonstrate how our branded, natural, full GRAS, AlphaSize® A-GPC functional ingredients truly impact human performance – both mental and physical”.

Documented, published, scientific substantiation exists to support significant health benefits for AlphaSize® A-GPC, which can improve all memory related abilities, reaction, agility, explosive power output, jumping, and running. AlphaSize® A-GPC is a fully functional ingredient, as it provides real energy for mind and body and not just a temporary effect with jitteriness and crash. It is tasteless, odorless, and stable, hence, is ideal for all dietary supplements, functional beverages, and functional foods, which target mental energy, sports nutrition, and healthy aging.

The FDA acknowledged Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status on AlphaSize® A-GPC, (granting it GRN 000419) with an Agency Response Letter, affirming utmost safety for its use in a wide range of conventional foods and beverages.

A-GPC is a safe, natural, and rapidly absorbed form of choline, that has been shown to raise free plasma choline levels much faster than other choline precursors. A-GPC is a proven, powerful precursor of acetylcholine, the body’s primary neurotransmitter, which is involved in all brain functions and, importantly, also in agility and muscular contraction functions.

Chemi Nutra is the U.S. business unit of parent company Chemi S.p.A., a privately held pharmaceutical and nutraceutical company based in Milan, Italy. Chemi, with cGMP certified manufacturing facilities in Italy and Brazil, is best known in the global nutritional arena for its introduction of phosphatidylserine (PS), the popular dietary supplement which has been granted two qualified health claims by the FDA, and is used to enhance learning, memory, and concentration, improve exercise performance, impact youthful wellbeing, and reduce stress.
