Question Is L-α glycerylphosphorylcholine (α-GPC), a choline analogue, associated with stroke after long-term use? Findings In this cohort study of matched cohorts including more than 12 million individuals aged 50 years or older without underlying stroke, Alzheimer disease, or cerebrovascular disease, α-GPC use was significantly associated with a 10-year incident stroke risk in a dose-responsive manner. Individuals using vs not using α-GPC had a 46% higher risk of stroke. Meaning The results of this cohort study suggest that the decision to use α-GPC must be carefully weighed with the consideration of potential stroke risk associated with α-GPC. Abstract Importance L-α...
