Huperzine A: An All-Natural Secret Weapon Against Brain Aging

Anyone interested in brain health and longevity should be aware of an extract known as huperzine A, a phytonutrient from the Chinese club moss plant, Huperzia serrata.

According to Chinese researchers, huperzine A helps people with Alzheimer’s and other degenerative brain disorders by promoting nerve cell growth, enabling brain cells to better communicate.(1)

Another important benefit of huperzine A is protecting acetylcholine, one of your most important neurotransmitters from chemical breakdown in the brain.  Because acetylcholine is a key player in memory function and learning,  dwindling levels are a major contributor to Alzheimer’s and other dementias.

There are numerous pharmaceutical drugs on the market that inhibit the breakdown of acetylcholine.  Huperzine A has been shown to work as well or better than many of these expensive drugs without the common side effects.

Here’s an example.  Studies have shown that compared to Alzheimer’s drugs like donepezil and galantamine, huperzine A crosses the blood-brain barrier more easily, has greater bioavailability, and has longer lasting benefits.(2) Read the rest of this entry »
