Benefits of drinking Hops Tea

While predominately known for, and used for, giving beer its distinctive flavor, hops are also used in herbal remedies since they contain numerous beneficial compounds like tannins, flavonoids, lupulone, and much more. These various compounds have been shown to provide a number of benefits to overall health including increased immune system strength. The flowering buds of the hop plant create a tea that is rich in all of these compounds and can also help with a variety of different medical issues. This versatile tea has a great number of benefits may very well surprise you.

Hops is used for anxiety, inability to sleep (insomnia) and other sleep disorders, restlessness, tension, excitability, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), nervousness, and irritability. It is also used to improve appetite, increase urine flow, start the flow of breast milk, as a bitter tonic, and for indigestion. Other uses include prostate cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, high cholesterol, tuberculosis, bladder infections, intestinal cramps, an intestinal disorder called mucous colitis, nerve pain

Common over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen (in Advil and
Motrin) and naproxen (in Aleve) are known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) because they relieve pain by reducing inflammation, they come with potential side effects, including stomach upset, heartburn, ulcers, and skin rashes, especially if used long-term for chronic conditions such as arthritis. Perluxan, a special extract of Hops found in a variety of supplements, is an effective but safer natural alternative.

Some users report that it has successfully helped in calming their nerves, relieving stress, relaxing anxiety, and combating insomnia.

Hops Tea: For Cancer Prevention
Like many other teas, hops tea has a wide array of helpful antioxidants to offer. Antioxidants can help to prevent the cells by protecting them from the damage done by free radicals in the body. Considerable studies have shown that the introduction of antioxidants into the body can help slow and prevent cancer development. However, something that can set hops tea aside from other teas and can help prevent specific cancers is the presence of a natural compound known as xanthohumol. Xanthohumol is a type of flavonoid that has been shown to block certain effects that lead to abnormal cell growth in the prostate, which can ultimately help to prevent the onset of prostate cancer. This flavonoid, which can only be found in hops tea, can also help to prevent other specific cancers such as breast cancer, colon cancer, and ovarian cancer.
