HuperzineA , anatural vegetable base, is achemical that helps improve memory and treat alzheimer's disease. Huperzine A has a high therapeutic index, a long time of action and no toxic side effects. Many people in China use high performance liquid chromatography, silica gel column chromatography and other separation methods, although the yield is high, but the productivity is very low, and the production cost is very high. So huperzine a is also called "the gold of plants."
HuperzineA is used for Alzheimer's disease,improve learningand memory, and age associatedmemoryimpairment.The effective rate of Huperzine Afor treatingmemory disorder isup to92.4%, and it has nootherobvious toxic and side effects, so it isreallyworth inclinical application. It is known as a safe drug for enhancing memory impairment. In recent years, a large number of domestic - clinical studies have also been provedHuperzine A can also improve the memory impairment caused by dementia and organic brain lesions, and has a significant clinical effect.
One of the major chemical functions of huperzine A is its use as an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. Acetylcholinesterase is an enzyme in the brain that breaks down the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and is responsible for a large number of synaptic functions and nerve excitation in the central nervous system. One acetylcholinesterase molecule reduces the function of about 25,000 acetylcholine molecules. Inhibitors of this enzyme are often used to make nerve agents, because too much acetylcholine in the body can paralyze muscles and kill them by asphyxiation.
Patients with alzheimer's often lack acetylcholine and depression cognitive function because acetylcholine plays an important role in nerve stimulation, memory and learning, and arousal. Lowering levels of acetylcholinesterase releases acetylcholine, which activates more neurons.
How to Take Huperzine-A
Supplementation of huperzine-A tends to be in the range of 50-200mcg daily, and while this can be divided into multiple dosages throughout the day it tends to be taken at a single dose. Supplementation of huperzine-A does not require food to be congested with it and can be taken in a fasted state.
Cycling of huperzine-A tends to be used since it can remain in the body for quite some time (half-life of 10-14 hours), and although a 'cycle' of huperzine-A tends to last 2-4 weeks followed by a break the optimal cycle length is not yet known.
