A note from @The_Smile_Enthuisiast, longevity coach and co-creator of our Medicinal Herbal Blends.
Hops contains a flavonoid compound called Xanthohumol. This compound is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-tumor, and anti-clotting.
It has also been the subject of over 75 research papers as a potentially longevity-enhancing compound. Some researchers believe that xanthohumol is 200 times more powerful than resveratrol. Xanthohumol can also protect my brain cells from oxidative stress.
Hops are packed with antioxidants and vitamins E, A, C, and B-complex. They have a calming and sedative effect on my nervous system—they are commonly used for anxiety, nervousness, hyperactivity, neuralgia, restlessness, panic attacks, nervous diarrhea, and insomnia. I like to blend my hops with passionflower with valerian root if I’m looking for an effective sedative to help alleviate intense stress, and support me towards a more restful sleep.
Hops also contain estrogenic properties and can provide relief from PMS, cramping, bloating, and hot flashes.
If I suffered with headaches, nervous tension, intestinal cramps, stress, earaches, toothaches, colitis, neuritis, shock, poor circulation, and liver ailments, I would consider bringing herbal infusions containing hops into my life.
Hops contain powerful anti-inflammatory properties—which makes this a supportive medicinal flower for people who suffer with rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, guillain-barre, lupus, bursitis, and diabetes.
If I was looking to remove excess uric acid from my body—or if I suspected I was dealing with kidney stones; I would consider consuming herbal infusions which contain hops.
Hops can help stimulate the appetite and improve digestion when taken an hour before a meal; such as in the form of a tea or herbal infusion.
