Hops X Factor, 1.7 oz (50 ml)
Luciden™: The Power in Hops
“Hops X Factor is the most promising anti-aging, longevity product I know of. It works by itself and also in conjunction with other longevity compounds such as resveratrol and astragaloside IV (TA 65, Superpill 2) as well as high-dose omega 3 fatty acids. I drink a dropper-full every day and use Hops X Factor topically as well.” — David Wolfe, author of Eating For Beauty and Superfoods: The Food and Medicine of the Future
Hops X Factor contains a natural molecule extracted from hops flowers (Humulus lupulus) called Xanthohumol (Xn). Hops flowers are most well-known for their use as a flavoring agent and natural preservative in beer. The Hops X Factor molecule (Xn) is a flavonoid phenol compound that has been the subject of over 75 research papers due to its role as a cell protector, preventative phytochemical, and as a potentially longevity-enhancing compound.
Research into Hops X Factor was initially inspired by discoveries concerning resveratrol. The active ingredient in Hops X Factor is a prenylated chalcone similar in structure and action to resveratrol.
Worldwide, hundreds of scientific studies focusing on resveratrol and its effects on health have been conducted. Many of these studies have been promising, while some are controversial. Discrepancies in the efficacy of resveratrol may be due to the short window of bio-availability upon ingestion, which is only three hours.
Unlike Resveratrol and other extracts of hops (which are typically not bio-available), Hops X Factor’s Xanthohumol has twelve hours to reach the cells once ingested.
Hops X Factor Scientific Properties:
The active compound in Hops X Factor is a prenylated chalcone phenol antioxidant called Xanthohumol (Xn), which some scientists and researchers believe is 200 times more powerful than Resveratrol. It has been shown to:
- Inhibit NF-k B (nuclear factor kappa beta) activation in cells
- Lower isoprostanes within 3 weeks in humans by 36% (measured in urine)
- Downregulate aromatase (natural aromatase inhibition)
- Inhibit excessive nitric oxide
- Inhibit prostaglandin E2 production
- Inhibit phase I cytochrome P450 enzyme which is involved in the metabolic activation of carcinogens.
These properties and dozens more have earned Hops X Factor its title as “cell protector.”
Frequently Asked Questions
Question: Do hops flowers or Hops X Factor products contain phytoestrogens?
Answer: Hops flowers are known to contain some phytoestrogens, however, Hops X Factor contains no phytoestrogens due to the proprietary extraction process it undergoes that isolates Xanthohumol. Xanthohumol is not a phytoestrogen.
Question: Can I take Hops X Factor with other products such as resveratrol or TA65?
Answer: Yes. Hops X Factor is compatible with other anti-aging products.
Question: Does Hops X Factor contain alcohol?
Answer: No. Hops X Factor contains no alcohol or artificial preservatives.
Question: Why should I choose Hops X Factor over other hops extracts?
Answer: Other hops extracts may or may not contain the super antioxidant Xanthohumol. If other products contain Xanthohumol, they lack the proprietary, highly bio-available, delivery mechanism of the Xanthohumol found in Hops X Factor. The delivery mechanism of Xanthohumol in Hops X Factor is what makes Hops X Factor unique in the world.
Question: Are there any foods that contain the active ingredient in Hops X Factor?
Answer: Yes. Please try Sacred Chocolate’s Longevity Bliss chocolate bar. The Longevity Bliss chocolate bar uses the exact highly bio-available form of Xanthohumol found in Hops X Factor.
Question: Why is Castor Oil used?
Answer: Castor Oil is the most stable and appropriate carrier for the fat-soluble prenylated xanthohumol active ingredient molecule in the Hops X Factor product.
