Rated 1 out of 5 by from Side effect - nausea and vomiting Maybe some people can take this, but I experienced severe nausea and vomiting and my husband felt nauseated as well. We sent it back. Thanks to Swanson's great return policy that was possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I started taking Huperzine A when another product I had taken for years began to irritate my digestive system. I am allergic to anything with soy in it. Huperzine A does not contain soy. It is very effective in helping me stay alert and focused during the day. I take it along with zinc supplement.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard to rate It's hard for me to rate this one. I think it might be good for some people. I don't like herbs that increase blood flow to the brain such as this and ginkgo biloba. It may help some people with concentration but for me, I just feel pressure in my head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very effective A few months ago I decided to try Huperzine for it's nootropic like properties. I was cautious at first, read it can cause unpleasant dreams, but I've been taking this once a day for 3 weeks straight, no problems. My concentration has also improved. Very pleased with this supplement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good product I recently discovered this product as part of a regimin with L-Caritine and Vinpocitine. When on vacation couldn't take the normal doses. My wife noticed the difference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Memory Enhancement I have been taking with Vinpocetine for 2 months. I have noticed an improvement in my memory, and hope to see further improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huperzine A This huperzine A supplement is a great benefit and it's the one supplement that I make sure to take everyday. I sleep fine and I feel like I do when I was 20 and in college a long time ago.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Edge I Need I decided to return to college this spring. I am 38 and I wanted to be sure I could keep up with people half my age. One needs something to give you just the right edge and Swanson's Hurperzine A seems to have done it for me. My recall memory seems to have improved since following a daily regimen of two a day. I am very pleased with the results. And the value is very good. I compared prices at the mall's vitamin shop and I was really shocked at the value. I will continue to shop at Swanson.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product for attention Wasn't thrilled about having to take the pills 2-3 times per day, but really this works out better than the ones you take once a day. I can tell I have better focus shortly after taking one of these. I have been looking for something like this! Good product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I had trouble sleeping While this supplement might be good, I found I had trouble getting to sleep and my hands were a bit shaky. Since I was also sick with something unrelated, it is possible if I try it again when I am well I will get better results. I will probably do that in a few days.
