HOPS (Humulus lupulus)

Hops

DESCRIPTION: Hops is known for its sedative influence on the body. It is rich in Vitamin B-complex and has magnesium, zinc, copper, traces of iodine, manganese, iron, sodium, lead, fluorine and chlorine.

POTENTIAL BENEFITS: It is known as a nervine as it contains sedative properties, which aids in overcoming insomnia. It also acts as a stimulant to the glands and muscles of the stomach which calms the gastric nerves and prevents hyperexcitability. It has a relaxing influence on the liver and gallbladder duct. It is also used to relax the bowels. It's main use is to relieve nervous tension and provide a good nights sleep.

POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS: Taking hops may cause the symptoms of depression to worsen. Due to possible unknown hormonal effects, it should be avoided by small children and pregnant or breast-feeding women. Hops may cause drowsiness during the daytime and it may be associated with allergic symptoms in individuals who handle it regularly. Taking hops may increase the sleepiness from sedating drugs and herbals. Sedation may be increased, as well, if hops is taken with certain other types of drugs, such as anticonvulsants and tricyclic antidepressants. Hops may also interfere with the body's ability to use certain allergy, antifungal, cancer, cholesterol-lowering, or contraceptive agents.

PARTS USED: Flower

GENERAL USAGE: Hops is available as capsules, liquid extracts, tea leaves, and other dosage forms. Directions for use vary considerably. Individuals who decide to take hops should use as directed on the package.
