Hops: natural ingredient of Wonderup

History and facts about hops

Hops: natural ingredient of WonderupThe hop is universally known as a natural preservative and flavoring agent in beer.
Traditionally, the flowers of hops have been used as an aid to good sleep. Cushions filled with hop were used as a pillow. Hops have been used for the first time in the 16th century in England to flavor beer. Hops are still used in Europe as a remedy for insomnia.

Corvallis, Ore.(AP) - Compounds found in the hop plant, used to flavor and preserve beer, may help protect against cancer, say researchers.
Clinical studies have shown that the compounds, known as flavonoids, have helped to inhibit an enzyme called cytochrome P450 which can activate the process of cancer.

Scientists at Oregon State University have discovered that some of flavonoids helped strengthen the impact of a class of enzymes, called quinoni redictase, which may block carcinogenic substances that eventually had already been activated.

“We treated ovary cells, breast and colon that were cancerous with concentrations (flavonoids) that were not harmful to normal cells and found that some of the hop flavonoids were toxic to cancer cells”, says Donald Buhler, an agricultural chemist and chief of the researchers.
“The substance of the flavonoids in hop, which is more toxic to cancer cells is called xantohumolo”, says Buhler, who has also stated that research should not be used to encourage greater consumption of beer.

“I would not encourage people to drink more," he says. "Obviously there's something unhealthy about drinking alcohol. But these results are really interesting. If these substances really prove to be beneficial it might be possible to find a way for administering to people in capsules or other concentrated forms”.
His discoveries were reported recently in Seattle at the annual meeting of the International Society of Toxicology.

An apple a day, according to popular tradition, keeps the doctor away. Now, according to a team of Japanese researchers on cancer, even a pint of beer with grilled steak might not be such a bad idea.
