  • Demonstrates a unique ability to protect mitochondrial cells, against harmful toxins. The mitochondria are the powerhouse of your cells, and are the energy factories, that keep you functioning optimally (6).
  • Acts as an antagonist of the NMDA receptor in the brain, thereby reducing tolerance and addiction (7).
  • Increases Nerve Growth Factor activity, Nerve growth factor (NGF) is one of a group of small protein like molecules called neurotrophins (BDNF is another) that are responsible for the development of new neurons, and for the health and maintenance of mature ones (8).

Nootropic Properties

  • Huperzine A has also been shown to act as a powerful antioxidant, neutralizing and in some cases preventing or even reversing oxidative damage caused by free radicals in the brain (1).
  • Huperzine A inhibits the production the G4 isoform of acetylcholinesterase, an enzyme that degrades and diminishes levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. This action effectively raises levels of acetylcholine, leading to greater mental clarity and performance (2).
  • Huperzine A is also known to help protect the brain against glutamate toxicity by blocking certain types of glutamate receptors. This action keeps brain cells from being overactivated and helps normalize glutamate levels (3).
  • Huperzine A acts to oppose neurotoxic effects of beta-amyloid peptide on cholinergic, dopaminergic, and noradrenergic systems. This therefore hold promise that Huperzine a is highly protective for the brain (4).
