Huperzine A Benefits
Huperzine A has many promising positive benefits. Let’s check out the most important ones.
1. Huperzine-A May Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease
Recent studies show that supplementing Huperzine A may not only slow down Alzheimer’s disease but also help to prevent it. 
Another study has found that in some patients with Alzheimer’s disease, a clinical trial has shown that huperzine A improves the mental ability of people. 
I also found that Huperzine A reduces so-called the NF-kB pathway in the brain cells, which can also help with Alzheimer’s. 
2. Huperzine-A Protects The Brain
Huperzine-A is an NMDA receptor antagonist, so it can help prevent neurons from cell death which happens because of glutamate toxicity. 
Besides that, Huperzine A can protect the brain from oxidative damage.
It activates BDNF-depenDENT and mTOR pathways, by which it alleviates oxidative damage from glutamate. 
Last but not least, it can protect our brains from iron oxidative damage. 
3. Huperzine-A Improves Cognitive Performance
As you probably know, Huperzine A is a popular study supplement. And there is a good reason why.
A study showed that supplementing Huperzine A helped students improve their memory and consequently achieve better results. 
That’s what makes it such a popular nootropic.

4. Huperzine-A Promotes Growth of Neural Cells
A study on mice shows that supplementing Huperzine A can stimulate the growth of neuronal cells in the hippocampus of mice. 
5. Huperzine-A Helps People With Depressive Disorder (MDD)
Studies also show that Huperzine A can do good as a supporting treatment of cognitive impairment for people with a major depressive disorder (MDD).
Why? Because Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitors have been shown to be really beneficial when it comes to treating cognitive impairments with people with MDD. And since Huperzine A is derived from Huperzineserrata, which is, in fact, a powerful AChE inhibitor, this makes Huperzine A very effective. 
Have you ever heard of a disorder called Myasthenia gravis? This is an autoimmune disease where the body itself produces antibodies against acetylcholine receptors. The use of previously mentioned AChe inhibitors can be really helpful. Huperzine A can be also really beneficial for relieving some symptoms of this disease, such as muscle weakness. 
Are there any other potential benefits of supplementing Huperzine A?
Yes, there are many, but those that we mentioned have been shown and confirmed through clinical studies.
When new research is done and presented, I’ll include it in this post.
