Huperzine A

Huperzine is an alkaloid that comes from the Chinese club moss huperzia serrata.

Huperzine A Benefits

Individuals most commonly take Huperzine A mostly for its ability to increase acetylcholine levels in the brain.[1] Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter mainly responsible for cognitive function. Because of the increases in acetylcholine, Huperzine A is used to improve memory and prevent age-related memory loss.[2,3,4]

Huperzia Serrata supplementation provides neuroprotection against glutamate.[5] Too much glutamate can cause numerous problems including nerve cell death, overstimulation, and fatigue.

Since Huperzine A is used to improve memory, this is a great supplement to take with other nootropics for maximum benefits.

Huperzine A Side Effects

Though rare when taken as directed, side effects including sweating, restlessness, and upset stomach have been reported. If you experience any negative side effects when using this product, discontinue supplementation and consult with a physician.

Huperzine A Dosage

Take one capsule (80mcg) once daily.

Synonyms:Huperzia Serrata, Qian Ceng Ta
