Natural Standard's featured CE/CME for the month of March is Hops: Safety & Effectiveness.
Hops are the seed cones from the Humulus lupulus plant. H. lupulus belongs to the family Cannabaceae and is native to Europe, Asia, and North America. Hops are cultivated primarily in the United States, Germany, Great Britain, the Czech Republic and China. Hops are widely used to preserve beer and give it its characteristic aroma and flavor. Essential oils of hops are used in perfumes, cereals, beverages and tobacco.
Traditionally, hop preparations have been used for relaxation, anxiety, sedation and to treat sleep disorders. There has been limited research evaluating the effects of hops on sleep.
