Xanthohumol Benefits

Benefits of Xanthohumol

Since the 1990s, interest in health-promoting activities of xanthohumol has increased continuously and several hundred scientific studies, more than 500 publications from research papers and patents have reported the potential health benefits of xanthohumol. That includes but not limited to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and antiplasmodial activity (Liu et al., 2015)*.

Xanthohumol is the most abundant prenylated flavonoid in the hop plant, with 0.1-1% dry weight, however, in most commercial beers, less than 0.2 mg/L is found, which is not enough to be beneficial to health. In order to increase the yield of xanthohumol in the brewing process, beverages and in food supplements, a xanthohumol enriched hop extract called XanoHop® Gold was developed.
