We can summarize the action of hops in a huge nutshell:
- Appetite improvement,
- Facilitating digestion.
Stress is one of the factors that adversely affects our body, and is also the cause and substrate of some civilization diseases. It is defined as a disturbance of mental and physical balance. Among its effects are nervousness, irritability, sleep problems and insomnia.
Both hop cones and lupulin contained in our hop granules have a calming effect, which is why they are recommended for people who live under constant stress, are nervously exhausted and have difficulty falling asleep. Bitterness contained in hops stimulates the secretion of saliva and gastric juice, facilitates digestion and assimilation of food. Therefore, hops can also be used for stomach problems. Due to its bacteriostatic properties, it is also recommended as an aid in the treatment of bacterial infections.
Some of our suggestions for using the offered hop pellets:
Hops tea for a good night’s sleep and more. Pour hops granules in an amount of about 2g (a teaspoon) into a glass and pour boiling water, brew under a lid, strain and drink in divided portions. The tea drunk in the evening has a calming effect, relieves tension, nervousness, helps you fall asleep and sleep deeply. It combats insomnia especially in menopausal women.
