Product Name: Hops P.E.
Specification: 0.3% Flavonoids,5:1,10:1
Description: Hops (Humulus lupulus L.) are commercially important as an essential flavoring in beer. Glands on the hop cone contain many unique compounds, making the chemistry of the hop plant extremely complex. The compounds most important to the brewing industry are the bitter acids, which give beer its characteristically bitter flavor, and the essential oils, which give beer its "hoppy" aroma.
Function: Actions: Sedative, soporific, visceral spasmolytic, aromatic bitter, digestive tonic, hypnotic, astringent, diuretic, anti-oxytocic, male anaphrodisiac; topically bactericidal, locally antiseptic. Indications: Neuralgia, insomnia, excitability, priapism, mucous colitis, anorexia; topically for crural ulcers. Specifically indicated in restlessness associated with nervous tension headache and/or indigestion. Therapeutics and Pharmacology: Humulus is a central nervous system relaxant used extensively to treat of insomnia, and hop pillows are very popular. The volatile oils are active here, although the valerianic acid bitter component also contributes to this action. Hop pillows induce relaxation by acting on the olfactory centre and thus on the central nervous system through the limbic system. Humulus helps relieve tension and anxiety and may be used where tension results in restlessness, headache and indigestion. Alcoholic extracts of Humulus show a strong spasmolytic action on smooth muscle and is of benefit wherever there is visceral tension, for example, in nervous dyspepsia, nervous colitis, palpitations, nervous or irritable coughs, and asthma. It reduces the effects of the nervous system on the digestive system, whilst at the same time gently stimulating the digestion. Its relaxing and astringent actions can be applied to mucous colitis as well as tense bowel states such as irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulitis or Crohn's disease. Humulone and lupulone have an anti-inflammatory action. These constituents are also antibacterial, particularly affecting gram-positive bacteria, in a mechanism thought to involve primary membrane leakage. The herbí»s antiseptic action is used in the treatment of infections of the upper digestive tract, ulcers, skin eruptions and wounds. The resistance of Gram-negative bacteria to the resin acids is attributed to the presence of a phospholipid-containing outer membrane, as humulone and lupulone are inactivated by serum phospholipids. Antifungal activity has been demonstrated towards Candida albicans, and the flavone constituents show activity against Staphylococcus aureus. The oestrogenic substances in Humulus may cause loss of libido in men. It has been used with some success in the treatment of premature ejaculation and priapism. Recent research suggests an anti-oxytocic property, supporting the claims for its use in dysmenorrhoea and amenorrhoea (particularly when associated with anorexia nervosa). In popular healing Humulus is used as a diuretic, for bladder inflammation, jaundice and other liver complaints, and is believed to have a hypotensive effect. Asparagin contributes to the plant's diuretic action.
