Product Description

Despite the name, club moss isn't a true moss but is a spore-producing plant in the fern family. Because this erect, low-growing plant resembles a miniature pine bough, it is also known as Running Pine, Princess Pine and many other names.

The leaves and stems are made into tea. They are also used to manufacture a powder used in the pharmaceutical industry to absorb moisture and prevent pills from adhering to each other.

Club Moss contains an alkaloid chemical called Huperzine A (Hup A for short). According to studies, Hup A has been proven to be beneficial in protecting the brain, including slowing the progression of Alzheimer's disease.*

In China, this extract has been in use for centuries for a number of conditions, including fever, inflammation, and blood disorders; in the United States, it is available as a natural supplement to aid in memory support.*

Medical research and clinical trials have identified huperzine A as a beneficial ingredient in the treatment for diseases and conditions associated with neurodegeneration, such as myasthenia gravis and Alzheimer's disease. In one recent study, sixty middle-aged and elderly patients with impaired neurological faculties were given either Hup A or a placebo for a period of sixty days. Physiological and psychological testing both before and after treatment was conducted on these patients; researchers found that the patients who were treated with Hup A improved over the course of the study by 43 to 70%. This study also confirmed both the efficacy and the safety of the consumption of Hup A.

Other studies have produced results which indicate that Hup A may have desirable outcomes when used for patients who suffer from Parkinson's disease.

Hup A is also recommended as a supplement in healthy individuals to support memory and cognitive brain power as the brain ages.

Dosage

The appropriate dose of club moss depends on several factors such as the user's age, health, and several other conditions. At this time there is not enough scientific information to determine an appropriate range of doses for club moss.

Club moss spores are safe, but be aware that large doses of the leaves or stems pose a risk of nerve toxicity due to the presence of the alkaloids lycopodine and clavadine. This product is produced from the spores.
