Huperzine A (200mcg) Overview
One of the most overlooked of all the brain-boosting supplements, Huperzine gets its name from a patented extract of a particular species of club moss known botanically as Huperzia serrata. Huperzine works in a manner totally different than that of other brain boosters like ginkgo biloba, acetyl-l-carnitine and phosphatidylserine (PS). Huperzine inhibits an enzyme that would otherwise break down one of the brains most important alertness and energy factors, acetylcholine. By doing so, Huperzine lets users experience much higher mental energy and alertness, but without the side-effects of stimulants. Source Natural's Huperzine A is our top-selling club moss extract supplement and a great choice for anyone looking for a brain boost, but especially those who haven't responded well to other brain booster supplements in the past.
Huperzine A (200mcg) Description from Source Naturals
Huperzine A 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.
