Hops - Glycetract
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. 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.
Among the most well-known is the Hops ability to help you rest and sleep better. Some users report that it has successfully helped in calming their nerves, relieving stress, relaxing anxiety, and combating insomnia. There is also some evidence that suggest that hops can help relieve constipation and act as a diuretic, helping to flush the system of toxins and waste.
Hops is also great to use externally as well. By applying it to a cloth you can use it for the antiseptic qualities it offers. It can be applied to minor cuts, scrapes, burns, and bug bites to help relieve pain, speed healing, and prevent infection. It can be also used externally to ease pain that is related to arthritis as well. Other external uses for this tea are aid with rheumatism, warts, bruises, boils, and it can even offer help by reducing inflammation.
Glycetracts are made without using alcohol for the extraction of the herb. They are made from Glycerol, distilled water and herbs. The glycerol used is vegetable sourced. Glycetracts are suitable for people who need to avoid any alcohol (e.g. young children, recovering alcoholics and those with liver distress)
