What is Huperzia good for?
Huperzia Serrata is a type of firmoss that contain the memory-boosting nootropic compound Huperzine A.
This acetylcholinesterase inhibitor is known for increasing levels of a neurotransmitter related to memory formation, recall and many of the most basic cognitive functions.
The plant itself is also known as Chinese club moss and is native to India and Southeast Asia. The extract of this plant has been used in the traditional medicine of China for centuries.
Huperzia Serrata is widely distributed over the counter as both an herbal Alzheimer’s treatment and as a cognitive enhancement supplement.
Editor Note: As I mentioned in an earlier post I will periodically cover natural remedies/herbs that are more than adequate substitutes for pharmaceutically produced remedies that have serious side effects. Do a search found on this page for “Natural Remedies” for a sampling of the remedies I have covered in the past.
