Source Naturals Huperzine A 100mg 120 tablets is a natural compound extracted from the Chinese club moss Huperzia serrata.
Worldwide studies have shown that Huperzine A supports learning and memory by protecting acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that acts as a messenger molecule in the brain.
Huperzine A may be used for both short-term "brain boost" needs, such as preparing for a test, as well as more long-term needs, such as reducing the mild memory loss associated with normal aging.
How does huperzine work?
Huperzine extract supports learning and memory by protecting acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that acts as a messenger molecule for nerve cells in the brain to enable memory and concentration. Huperzine is a powerful inhibitor of the enzyme cholinesterase that breaks down acetylcholine, leaving more acetylcholine in the brain for its important functions.
How can huperzine help cognitive function?
Cholinergic neurons travel to relay signals in the brain, which is how memory and cognition work. Brain choline decreases naturally with age. Huperzine appears to protect the number, size and function of cholinergic neurons for healthy cognition.
How does huperzine support memory function?
Frequently, older people have to struggle to remember details from the past. Much of this has to do with the reduction of important neurotransmitters, like acetylcholine, in the brain. It is thought that in aging people, the enzyme acetylcholinesterase does not keep balance in the brain but instead wipes out acetylcholine. Huperzine keeps acetylcholinesterase in check and protects acetylcholine.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

Skin hunger: why we crave touch
As we are in the midst of the Easter Holiday, we can't help but feel sad. While Mother Nature is showing abundant signs of spring during a period of incredibly sunny weather, we are barely allowed to go outside other than to do what is absolutely necessary. Our gyms have been closed for almost a month now while in some countries, people aren't even allowed to exercise. Not just group exercise, but also to just jump on a bike and go for long rides.
While couples and families get grumpy from living together in a cramped space, others face different problems: they are living without any companion whatsoever. Therefore it's not a miracle how all of a sudden, pet asylums have been able to 'clear out' their list of unwanted pets. Not just because people have more time at hand to walk a dog (just about the only thing some are allowed to do) but also because they crave the ability to touch a living being, for lack of being able to touch another human.
Somehow, just like the sense of smell is overlooked, this also is true for the sense of touch. Only when we lose it, we crave it. This craving also is called 'touch hunger' or 'skin hunger'.
Nootropics, what are they and how do they work?Nootropics is the accepted term for substances that enhance learning and memory function.
Nootropics work in various ways depending on the characteristic of the substance.
Some work by enhancing oxygen transport to the brain, an improved energy turnover in the brain, better neurotransmitter availability, or enhancing the creation of other substances that influence brain activity.
Take 1 tablet once or twice a day or as directed by your qualified health care consultant.
