Huperzine A 100mcg 60 tabs
Cognitive function and memory retention is something that we all hold dear. I do not think anyone would disagree with that. Our mind is our storage unit for who we are as people. This is where memories, skills, and all of the other things that make up our personality are kept. Without it, we almost do not exist. This is why making sure that we hold on to those memories are important and the way to do that is to maintain proper brain health. There are many options in terms of medication that we can use to aid us in this endeavour but at the end of the day, the more natural way maybe the better way to go especially if we want to avoid side effects with long term use.
Huperzine A could be that substance that will help with brain health and memory retention without much side effects. This is an all natural product or substance which is derived from the plant known as huperzia serrata. This is a low lying moss plant that is common in the regions of Asia. The plant itself has long been used in Chinese herbal medicine as treatments for various health issues but mostly for fevers. Huperzine A was the active ingredient in this plant which gave it its potency but it was only around the mid 1900’s that huperzine A was isolated. Since then many studies in China and the United states have been done to determine with more accuracy the role that it can play in the world of modern health care. Its main function as it turns out is to play a vital role in the maintenance of the central nervous system’s health. It even has been marketed in China and the United States as a supplement that could help with Alzeihmer’s disease.
Huperzine A and the Central Nervous System Health
Various studies both in China and the United States have confirmed that Huperzine A has indeed benefits for the human health. The main reason why this is so is because of its main function in the body which to be an AChE inhibitor. AChE or acetylcholinesterase is a brain enzyme which is most responsible for the destruction of acetylcholine or ACh in the body which causes detrimental effects to our nervous system as this is the enzyme that initiates many synaptic functions and neuronal arousal. In some studies, many memory degenerative disorders have even been linked to low levels of ACh and this is why focus has been diverted to what affects ACh levels in the body and one of them is not being able to inhibit AChE because it has been shown that one AChE molecule can degrade over 25,000 ACh molecules. This potency is what drives experts to believe that low levels of AChE will be able to help enhance neuron activity, cognitive learning and memory retention. It can even allow for better feelings of alertness and improve the chances of avoiding Alzheimer’s disease.
