How does it work?
Huperzine A is thought to be beneficial for problems with memory, loss of mental abilities (dementia), and the muscular disorder myasthenia gravis because it causes an increase in the levels of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is one of the chemicals that our nerves use to communicate in the brain, muscles, and other areas.
Huperzine A (L-Huperzine A) is an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. This means prevents it acetylcholine from being broken down in the brain. Higher levels of acetylcholine make it easier to perform cognitive tasks such as learning new things, memorizing information, and focusing at the task at hand.
