Source Naturals Huperzine A 200mg 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.
