Typically I'll do:

300-600mg 30-60 minutes pre-workout

or

300mg AM + 300mg PM (with one of those being my pre-workout)

I doubt it. Their entire blend was 1701mg - containing PS, Alpha GPC, Niacin, Arginine, and a bunch of other stuff.

Just one serving of endoamp contains more than 1700mg and it's just alpha gpc and PS...additionally, we used the patented and higher yield concentrations

When you say 300 mg., are you meaning 300 mg. total/150 mg. active or 600 mg. total/300 mg. active?

I'm just curious bc we had considered making one but its finding the right dosage to offer.

I try to take the active amount. Seems tough sometimes as companies seem to be intentionally vague.

600 active or 600 total?

Just curious.

Not so much here, but in reading other places some people talk about it making them tired if they take too much so I've been trying to determine what dose we want to go with if we do one.

This ones been a hard one to figure out the dose we want to use.

I've been trying to decide between:
- 300 mg. per cap/150 mg. active
- 600 mg. per cap/300 mg. active
- Or doing an Alpha GPCA + Citicoline blend

Toniiq doesn't state, of course

I think Toniiq sells a 99%.

“The Most Active Alpha GPC Available - Toniiq Alpha GPC brings the most potent levels of cognitive health support on the market. Our Alpha-GPC contains an unprecedented purity level of 99%+ (most alpha gpc products contain less than 50%). Higher purity means a greater bioavailability of the active compounds that give Alpha-GPC its neurological health-supporting properties”

I usually take 600mg (meaning 600 mg gross, netting 300mg). Frequently I take it with ALCAR and ALA. I have read that many take Alpha GPC with GABA (I don't, for some reason I react pretty strongly to GABA).

Ranked in my preference.
I'm thinking that we may wind up doing an Alpha-GPC and also an Alpha-GPC/Citicoline combo product.

I also think I've changed gears completely and am just going to go with an Alpha GPC 98% and do 300 mg. active per cap. I had wanted to try to use Alpha Size bc we normally try to use branded ingredients when it makes sense, but in this case, it may not make sense from a cost standpoint.

If we did an Alpha GPC/Citicoline combo product, what dose would you like to see? I was thinking 250/250 but I'm worried that may be too strong for some people.

Thank you for sharing. I'm leaning towards a 98% @ 300 mg. per cap.

That could be good in a way (reacting strongly to GABA) if timed right.

Ya I'd say have that. 150 GPC/125 Citicoline is a combo I have enjoyed (up to 300mg and 250mg). 250/250 would be fine, but I'd be unsure I'd want more than that ever and sometimes less is more with Nootropics, especially when combining multiple things.

I was thinking either 250/250 or 300/250 (just bc psychologically people are so used to seeing Alpha GPC at 300 mg.

And I probably would make that be a 2 capsule dose so that people could take less if they wanted - like 150/125 or 125/125 per cap bc I absolutely agree with what you said, less can be more with nootropics sometimes.

Does adding DMAE make sense? Something like (per cap) 150mg Alpha GPC, 125mg Citicoline, and 125mg DMAE?

I’ve definitely of late found less is more with choline. I like the idea of 150/125 per cap.

It does to me bc I really like DMAE but some people aren't as big of fans of it as me. I'd be curious to hear other peoples opinions.

Would Centrophenoxine be the better choice? Less dosage needed, and it’s essentially a superior DMAE

Yes and no. Yes in the sense that its better; but no in the sense that this product will already be so expensive that adding Centrophenoxine to it would make it even moreso. Plus, there are some people that are scared of Centrophenoxine because of the warnings about not taking it sublingually. And DMAE is a lot more well known.

not much experience with alpha gpc but right now 1200 mg at 50% is great for focus for me. so your 250 would be 98% pure? seem to be on the low side

endoamp max is
serin aid 70% complex-1.1gm
alphasize 50%-600mg

use my code THEBIGT at iconic formulations and endoamp max is $56 for 30, 3 capsule servings.

i've seen serin aid alone sell for over $40 for 60 100mg pills....trust me the combo of serin aid and alphasize is a incredible brain boost....i know, at 62 and after years of alcoholic drinking and drugging my brain doesn't function nearly as well as it once did-ENDOAMP MAX has been a GODSEND for me. i highly recommend!!!

For a simple ingredient Alpha GPC, we would do 300 mg. per cap @ 98%. This way a person could take 1 to 2 caps, depending on their individual needs.

For an Alpha GPC & Citicoline mix, we were talking about doing 150 mg. Alpha GPC + 125 mg. Citicoline per capsule. Being that it has both forms, some people wouldn't want to go higher than that.
