Hops are also known to be particularly beneficial for headaches, nervous tension, intestinal cramps, stress, earaches, toothaches, colitis, neuritis, shock, poor circulation, and liver ailments. They also have powerful anti-inflammatory properties which makes it a good herb for people who suffer with rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, guillain-barre, lupus, bursitis, and diabetes.

They are also excellent for helping to prevent the formation of kidney stones. Hops can help stimulate the appetite and improve digestion when taken an hour before a meal.
