WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn.—Chemi Nutra announced its AlphaSize® A-GPC (alpha-glyceryl phosphoryl choline) was self affirmed GRAS (generally recognized as safe) following a scientific review by an independent expert panel. The affirmation will allow the inclusion of A-GPC in a wide range of conventional foods and beverages. Studies have shown A-GPC is a natural and rapidly absorbed form of choline, as well as a precursor to acetylcholine, the body’s primary neurotransmitter. In addition, trials using AlphaSize A-GPC have shown its ability to improve mental clarity and improve muscular strength and power.

“We are very pleased that under the outstanding leadership of Michael Falk, Ph.D., at Life Sciences Research Organization (LSRO), we have achieved self affirmed GRAS with our branded A-GPC ingredient—AlphaSize A-GPC," said Scott Hagerman, president, Chemi Nutra. “The intensive regulatory review conducted by LSRO’s independent qualified experts, demonstrates Chemi Nutra’s leadership and commitment to the food, beverage, and dietary supplement arenas. GRAS status will greatly expand the use of this novel, health beneficial ingredient in conventional foods and beverages."
