Sperb’s Herbs – Hops

Hops is a traditional European herb with some interesting uses. And it is a major ingredient in beer. This episode looks at both of these in depth and the science behind them. As a relative non-drinker, I was still fascinated with this exploration of beer. And the herb may have some interesting application to my patients. What more can ask for? So, get a frothy mug o’ beer and join us for this fascinating episode!

    I have read a lot about hops working on inflammatory pathways and have used it for that myself with good results.
