Huperzine-A

vanaf 16.45 / 90 capsules

Huperzine-A is an alkaloid purified from Chinese club moss, Huperzia serrata. This substance has been widely used in traditional Chinese medicine. Alkaloid means it is a substance containing nitrogen. Most alkaloids can be found in plants and many of these plants (but not all!) are poisonous as a result. Huperzine-A increases levels of acetylcholine in the brain by blocking the action of cholinesterase. This is the substance that breaks down Choline. Huperzine-A works even better when combined with nootropics that increase choline levels.
