Huperzine A

Huperzine A

Huperzia serrata is a natural nootropic native to India and southeast Asia and it is also known as Chinese Club Moss. Huperzia serrata has been used in China for centuries to treat a number of conditions including fever and inflammation. Researchers later discovered that this nootropic plant contained Huperzine-A, an alkaloid that easily crosses the blood brain barrier and acts as an AChE inhibitor. Today Huperzine A powder is commonly distributed as an over-the-counter nootropic and dietary supplement.

Huperzine A is a naturally occurring alkaloid in the plant family Huperziaceae, has drawn great interest for its potential application in Alzheimer disease therapy.  Huperzine A is a natural inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase derived from the Chinese folk medicine Huperzia serrata (Qian Ceng Ta). It is a licensed anti-AD drug in China and is available as a nutraceutical in the US recently.
