Xanthohumol is a natural flavonoid extracted from the hop. The beneficial activity of this compound in the human body is staggeringly broad. Xanthohumol is an excellent antioxidant. It delays aging, increases vigor and is highly effective against fungi, bacteria, viruses and cancer.
Xanthohumol is one of the strongest antioxidants known to mankind. It effectively protects humans and animals by eradicating the free radicals present in the body which impair cell membranes. The presence of free radicals in the body are the main cause of numerous serious diseases. Xanthohumol slows down the aging process and prevents many so-called “civilization diseases” – atherosclerosis, heart infarctions, strokes, cancers, diabetes, and age-related macular degenerations (AMD).
Xanthohumol stops or in some cases, reverses the process of Carcinogenesis (development of cancer). It indicates strong chemopreventive activity against prostate, breast, colon, and cervical cancer. Chemoprevention, contrary to chemotherapy, works even from the earliest stages of cancer formation.
Xanthohumol treats inflammations by actively fighting cyclooxygenase and Lipoxygenase enzymes. It also neutralizes autoimmune diseases, cirrhosis of the liver and has antimicrobial activity, which is crucially important in disease prevention and infectious diseases treatment. Xanthohumol kills pathological bacteria, viruses and fungi – for instance, malaria-causing protozoa.
Xanthohumol, the major prenylated chalcone found in hops, is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. We have recently shown that xanthohumol inhibits hepatic inflammation and fibrosis...Read More
Angiogenesis and inflammation are two intermingled processes that play a role in wound healing. Nevertheless, whenever exacerbated, these processes result in nonhealing wounds. Xanthohumol (XN),...Read More
Xanthohumol, prenylated flavonoid contained in beer, prevents the induction of preneoplastic lesions and DNA damage in liver and colon induced by the heterocyclic aromatic mine amino-3-methyl-imidazo(4,5-f)quinoline (IQ)
Xanthohumol (XN) is a hop derived prenylated flavonoid contained in beer. Earlier findings indicated that it has promising chemopreventive properties and protects cells against DNA...Read More
