Remedy #126 Huperzine A, a Natural Treatment for Depression

Huperzine A is a highly purified substance derived from a plant called Chinese club moss. It's primarily used for diseases that result in cognitive decline like Alzheimer's disease. It's not like a herb, since it's required to be purified in a laboratory. It's used in a variety of ways for mental health, including improving behavioral functions, protecting brain tissue, age-related memory impairment and more.

How does it help treat depression and anxiety? Well, it preserves levels of neurotransmitter Acetylcholine in the body. A neurotransmitter, as you know, is one of those essential chemicals that our nerves use to communicate in the brain. The lack of Acetylcholine results in a few brain disorders, including depression. So if you're lacking Acetylcholine, Huperzine A can be a very helpful anti-depressant. Take a lower dosage of Huperzine A in the beginning because it is recommended to start with a lower dosage.
