Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great SWANSON's Product I take Huperzine A for my own personal reasons, and have for a few years now! In addition, I can tell you specifically that I have been a loyal customer of SWANSON's since 1999, they rank 99.99% in my book for quality and service, and I would recommend SWANSON's to all!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Near Empty bottle The product is good and effective, but the bottle is just 25% full; they are wasting plastic packaging material; I ordered 4 bottles of 30 caps, yet I could easily fit all 120 capsules into one bottle; Hint for SwansonsVitamins; offer 120 caps in this bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems Helpful I bought this for my mom along with a couple other items to help boost the memory of our mom in her 80's. My sister and I both noticed a positive difference so I will continue purchase this product. I did switch and try another brand but am back to the Swanson brand. Swanons's capsule size is small and easy for her to swallow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I was driving today and noticed a difference in my concentration. A very noticeable difference. I felt alert and more confident. I can only attribute it to adding this supplement to my regimen. I will definitely continue to use this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Probably the strongest herbal memory booster Want to remember your dreams or try an herb that you can feel? Well you found it and its this Huperzine A is a reversible AChE inhibitor (it blocks an enzyme for a few hours). AChE breaks down acetylcholine, inhibit it and there's more acetylcholine in the brain (this is not harmful by the way). As far as the bottle being small i think thats stupendous, a bigger bottle would only be a waste of more plastic, a higher quantity would be cool but you can always just buy more than 1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works! I started taking Huperzine A as an aid to trigger lucid dreaming. I take 200mcg after four hours of sleep. I also take two capsules of Swanson's 250mg choline / inositol blend with it. This combination has greatly increased my dream intensity and it has helped me to improve my lucid dreaming. Even more, when I awake I am refreshed, full of energy and I do notice an increase in my focus and concentration. My mind is fairly sharp normally and I'm in excellent health so when I notice a difference like this, I am impressed! I highly recommend this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product but not the best bargain I have been using this for a couple of weeks, and my mental function and mood have both improved dramatically. However, most web sites recommend taking 200 mcg twice daily. Therefore, I would need 2 bottles of this per month. I have found a name brand huperzine with the same dosage and 4 times the quantity of Swanson's bottle on this same web site. I will order that next, and if it works as well as Swanson's brand, I will be ordering that one from now on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bottle too small! Great product, but the bottle is tiny and only holds 30 pills, so I have to order every month. Can we please have a larger quantity?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like to remember peoples names? I saw this supplement on sale. I researched the compound and thought I would give it a shot. It turned out to be just what I needed. I've always wished my memory was better for things like remembering peoples names. This works marvelously for that . Now, I take many other supplements so I cannot say that Hupoerzine A is the soul reasons for this effect, but the combination I'm using seems to do the trick.
