Huperzine-A – the only natural and scientifically proven stimulant for the cognitive processes

Huperzine-A – the only natural and scientifically proven stimulant for the cognitive processes


Medical research and clinical trials have identified huperzine A as a beneficial ingredient in the treatment for diseases and conditions associated with neurodegeneration, such as myasthenia gravis and Alzheimer’s disease. In one recent study, sixty middle-aged and elderly patients with impaired neurological faculties were given either Hup A or a placebo for a period of sixty days. Physiological and psychological testing both before and after treatment was conducted on these patients; researchers found that the patients who were treated with Hup A improved over the course of the study by 43 to 70%. This study also confirmed both the efficacy and the safety of the consumption of Hup A.

Other studies have produced results which indicate that Hup A may have desirable outcomes when used for patients who suffer from Parkinson’s disease. Hup A is also recommended as a supplement in healthy individuals to support memory and cognitive brain power as the brain ages.

Recent studies conducted in China have concluded that huperzine A is safer than many memory-aid drugs currently on the market. Huperzine A, the active extract from Huperzia serrata, serves as a powerful inhibitor to an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase (AChEI), which is significant because acetylcholinesterase breaks down an important neurotransmitter known as acetylcholine. The brain cells require acetylcholine to transmit messages between brain cells and other parts of the body. Reduced levels of the acetylcholine neurotransmitter are associated with lower levels of cognitive activity. Patients with Alzheimer’s disease are shown to have increased levels of the harmful enzyme acetylcholinesterase, and studies have shown that Alzheimer’s patients derive benefits from having this enzyme inhibited. In addition to inhibiting the acetylcholinesterase levels in the brain, Hup A has also been shown to actually increase acetylcholine concentrations, which further improves memory, cognitive processing, and other related brain activity.

Sun Wave Pharma offer to the medical-pharmaceutical community, the product ALZOVERT, a capsule containing 100 mcg of huperzine A, a purified extract of Huperzia serrata 99%. ALZOVERT is administered in as one capsule per day and is indicated for memory disorders, cognitive disorders, Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia.
