Huperzine-A (sometimes called selagine) is a substance derived and purified from the Chinese Club Moss (Huperzia serrata). Huperzine-A is promoted as a memory-enhancer and is often used to treat Alzheimer’s disease, though promissory statements to the effect of the latter are prohibited by the FDA. But what does huperzine-A do in the body? The answer is quite technical and enormously fascinating.
Firstly, we’ll learn or relearn some biological terminology. Enzymes are substances that make it easier for chemical reactions to occur in living organisms. The enzymes in the human body are crucial. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that relay signals between our nerve cells and are thus vital to our nervous system. Now that we understand those two terms, we can better understand the basics of a process that involves them both. A specialized enzyme called acetylcholinesterase (AChE) helps the reaction that breaks down a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine (ACh). This breakdown of ACh is an important function for reasons that would be tedious to discuss here, but low levels of the neurotransmitter ACh have been associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Huperzine-A serves as an anticholinesterase, a technical term that denotes a substance that prevents the enzyme AChE from doing the job we discussed earlier: breaking down ACh. With huperzine-A inhibiting AChE, ACh levels in the body increase.
A huperzine-A supplement is generally used for memory enhancement, increasing alertness, and treating an uncommon muscle disease known as myasthenia gravis, which is characterized by skeletal muscle weakness. Huperzine-A is sometimes used in conjunction with other drugs, usually with the intent to diminish any undesirable side effects. Such hybrid products are still being researched. Huperzine-A has evidently improved the memory and behavior in people with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in a few studies, but more studies are being conducted to better understand its efficacy.
