I originally bought the Huperzine A as a memory supplement. It worked for that, not anything miraculous mind you. But it gave me a little boost.
Trouble was that sleeping anytime close after ingestion, was a no-go!
sleeping anytime close after ingestion, was a no-go!
And when I finally went to sleep, I ended up just skirting the edge of consciousness. Similar to suddenly falling off a cliff, just to jump up in bed realising I was just dreaming. Only I do this all night!
So I ended up taking Huperzine A sparingly. Until one day I managed to f$#k up my sleep cycle, and ended up needing to reset it. This I did by staying awake until the time where I usually go to sleep came again. This process is always a bi#@h for me! So I decided to try taking Huperzine A, and see if it helped me stay awake, and it did! I was still tired after taking it, but my eyes didn't feel like they were weighed down by lead. And the need for sleep wasn't constantly trying to drag me down. And when I finally went to sleep, the sleep quality was fine except for a lot of vivid dreams.
