What is Huperzine A?

Huperzine A (aka selagine) is a natural alkaloid that is extracted from the herbs of the Huperziceae family. Currently, Huperzine A is one of the most popular memory-enhancing products on the market. Huperzine A has been used to treat Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other forms of neurological impairments. However, positive results are also observed in individuals without any mental impairments. For example, one experiment in healthy teenagers found that Huperzine A was very effective in increasing memory function.

Due to its effectiveness and concentration, only small dosages of Huperzine A are required (see below). More recently, Huperzine A has been used in a number of popular nootropic formulas.

Huperzine A works by inhibiting an enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine, which is a very important neurotransmitter involved in a number of cognitive processes, including learning, memory and focus. Low levels of acetylcholine are often associated with cognitive decline and impairment. In addition to memory loss prevention, Huperzine A has been shown to improve mental functions and concentration.

Like Alpha GPC it belongs to the cholinergic family. However, it is often a preferred choice by nootropics users as it has less cholinergic related side effects. In addition, Huperzine A has neuroprotective properties against glutamate toxicity. Therefore, Huperzine A may also protect from the brain tissue damage.

Key benefits:

  • Enhanced mental functions
  • Improved memory
  • Increased focus
  • Improved mood

Mechanisms of action:

After oral ingestion it appears in the blood in around 15 minutes and peaks at around 70 minutes post-ingestion. Compare to some other nootropics this is relatively quick. Furthermore, its half-life appears to be long too. Huperzine A is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor which helps to regulate acetylcholine levels in the brain. Low levels of acetylcholine are often associated with a cognitive decline.

Recommended dosage:

The recommended daily dosage is between 50 – 200 mcg taken in 2 equal doses. Huperzine A is water soluble so it does not have to be ingested with a meal. Also, it is recommended to take Huperzine A on a cycle basis, e.g. two weeks followed by a break.

Side effects:

Appropriate use should not have any adverse side effects. Animal and human studies do not show any serious side-effects if taken at the recommended dosages. However, some reported side effects include nausea, sweating, dizziness, thirst and restlessness.

Good customer service and Very strong product.
First of all I would like to say how impresses with the service I received, Extremely friendly worker who I dealt with on live chat. I had several requests and all were dealt with promptly and efficiently The product itself was very strong, I was after a nootropic to enhance my memory and Although it took a couple of days to feel any major differences, I'm now very happy with Huperzine A. I have noticed i'm having very deep sleeps and in-dept dreams. I wake up feeling great and ready to start the day. Others have been commenting on how happy I look and how much I seem focused on my work. Those people are right, i feel this as well. Last but not least a fantastic price and shipping arrived on time!

My second favourite
I tried this one based on recent reviews I've read online. I must admit it certainly does live up to expectation. Nefiracetam is my favourite and this a close second. I'm going to combine the two over the next couple of weeks and see how I get on. Thanks again.

Great for my age.
Hi ! I'm in my late 60's and over the last 3 or 4 years my memory has declined. I've tried various things here and there and Huperzine A seems to be the one that works best for me and the price is something that most people have to consider. There are other products out there that work as well but they're nowhere near as cheap as Huperzine A. You need to get the dosage right but once you do, you'll feel better than ever. I certainly do.
