What is Huperzia serrata?

Huperzia serrata is luxuriant plants. Huperzine A extracted from a club moss (Huperzia serrata), is a sesquiterpene alkaloid and a powerful and reversible inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) with on- and off-rates.
Huperzia serrata extract has been used for the treatment of swelling, fever and blood disorders. Huperzia serrata has demonstrated both memory enhancement in animal and clinical trials and neuroprotective effects.
Huperzia serrata has potent pharmacological effects and, particularly since long-term safety has not been determined, it should only be used with medical supervision. Huperzia serrata extract may have some effectiveness in Alzheimer’s disease and age-related memory impairment. Huperzine A has been used to treat fever and some inflammatory disorders, but there is no credible scientific evidence to support these uses.
