Intensive research has found a very broad range of Xanthohumol applications, though the full range has not been fully discovered yet. As for now, there are around 800 patents for Xanthohumol based products granted.
Research on xanthohumol has been carried out for several dozen years, during which time hundreds patent applications related to this substance have been registered. However, the manufacturing methods used to date mean that only small quantities are produced, by industrial standards, and the price per kilogram reaches even over 60 million EUR, which for obvious reasons excludes the possibility of commercial application of xanthohumol.
All information on the broad spectrum of xanthohumol’s effects is based on years of research at recognized research centers and universities in the USA, Europe, as well as China and Japan. A Google search shows more than 84,000 links for the query “Xanthohumol research”. (Xanthohumol research).
The vast majority of scientific studies focus on three primary properties of xanthohumol: antioxidant, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory.
Recently, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, one can see a growing interest in the antiviral properties of Xanthohumol. An October 2020 issue of Nutrition and Dietary Supplements magazine has a very interesting article on this topic, “The Potential Role of Xanthohumol in SARS-CoV-2 Treatment-Globally Accessible and Economically Viable”, by Martyn Caplin and Luohai Chen of the Royal Free Hospital in London.
Research in the above-mentioned areas reveals properties of xanthohumol which make it useful in cosmetic, pharmaceutical, dietary supplement, food and animal food industries.
The main conclusions from the conducted research indicate the potential application of xanthohumol in the following areas:

Solubility of Xanthohumol
In addition to the production of xanthohumol itself, we are conducting our own research into new products containing xanthohumol to present the results to potential manufacturers of these products. In particular we are looking for new carriers – substances with which xanthohumol can be mixed or dissolved due to strong hydrophobic properties – solubility in water is only 0.00013 g/l. So far we are using carriers based on:
- pure spirit,
- vegetable oils and
- natural vegetable proteins such as rice protein.
