WHAT IS HUPERZINE A?
Huperzine A is a substance extracted from a plant called Chinese club moss. In traditional Chinese medicine, the plant is used as an anti-inflammatory and cognitive enhancer. Huperzine-A is a powerful way to promote the production of acetylcholine, a key precursor to neurotransmitters and so, in the fitness realm, Huperzine A is used as a nootropic to support focus and energy.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HUPERZINE A?
Huperzine A is a beneficial supplement for memory, focus, energy, and muscular contractions. As mentioned briefly above, Huperzine A has the ability to increase the levels of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is one of the chemicals that our nerves use to communicate in the brain, muscles, and other cells in the body. In addition to this, Huperzine A can present as a powerful antioxidant, preventing cell death.
The research surrounding Huperzine A is largely based around the supplement's ability to assist with improving memory and its capability to enhance cognitive performance during aging. Unfortunately, as we age, it is only natural that we experience age-related neurodegenerative declines, however, as a result of the effect of Huperzine-A in the bodies' acetylcholine pathways, it has been shown to help avoid/ reduce these age-related cognitive deteriorations.
In addition to this, the increased levels of Acetylcholine due to the presence of Huperzine A works to improve nerve and brain function as well as the direct signaling of muscular contractions, which leads to greater physical performance.
WHERE DOES ONEST USE HUPERZINE A?
Typically, Huperzine A is used in Pre-Workout, Fat-Burner and Nootropic formulas due to its ability to support enhanced cognition and energy.
ONEST uses Huperzine A in OverLoad to boost acetylcholine levels for enhanced muscle contraction, improved motivation, focus, and memory whilst increasing cognitive function.
