Folks think going to bed early is the key to earn deep sleep, but in reality, it is not that simple. One night we are staying up late until 2 AM, binging on our favorite series and digging into the Doritos…. while the next day we are barely able to make it past 8 PM with uncontrollable howling yawns.

But for most people, even catching the forty winks is the hardest part of life. Sleep is very crucial for proper body functioning. People with sleep disorders try both simple and complex tweaks to catch sleep, but end up staring at the ceiling above their heads at night.

Today, we are going deeper with hopes to switch you to a safer option that will surely help you in catching sleep. Ladies and gentlemen, we are about to present you with the details of hops and our finest products that use hops as a sleep aid.

What is Hops?

Hops (Hummulus lupulus) are the flowers of the hop plant that are fervently used in beer production. The fruits of female hops are employed to dilute the heavy malted taste of beer with their bitter, resinous notes; imparting the bitter aroma, fizz, and citrus fruity smack.

Hops is a dioecious vine with male and female flowers on completely different plants. It augments robustly around the walls and fences, climbing to an impressive height of 2 feet.

Until the late 19th century, before being the ‘key’ beer ingredient, hops female flowers were used as the calming agent in ‘sleepy pillows’ to cure headaches and insomnia. Also, they were swirled in the boiling water to make a good sedative drink.
