Huperzine A is an alkaloid derived from Huperzia serrata. It’s a Botanical Ingredient that promotes memory and cognitive function by supporting healthy acetylcholine levels in the brain, vascular function and neuronal health. *
Several randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials indicate that Huperzine A supports memory and cognitive function.*
Some of the researchers conclusions to those studies are as follows:
In “a placebo-controlled randomized clinical trial of 34 pairs of adolescents complaining of self-diagnosed “memory inadequacy,” four weeks of supplemental Huperzine A resulted in significantly improved performance on tests of memory and learning ability.”3
“Huperzine A possesses the ability to protect cells against hydrogen peroxide, beta-amyloid protein (a toxic protein), glutamate (a neurotoxin), and ischemia (state of reduced oxygen).*”4
