Huperzine A Benefits
Individuals most commonly take Huperzine A mostly for its ability to increase acetylcholine levels in the brain. 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. 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 Dosage
Take one capsule (80mcg) once daily.
