Default Hops raise blood pressure

I read somewhere that hops raise blood pressure, How do you avoid this if you drink beer daily?

Since you posted in the Hop Growing area, I must agree. Trying to grow hops raises my blood pressure.

I don't think this is true. What are your sources?

I have heard the exact opposite. Hops are calming.

My blood pressure only raises when SWMBO shrieks "ARE YOU GOING OUT TO LOOK AT YOUR HOPS AGAIN????"

LOL

sorry guys, I read this in a hurry 1 month ago, didn't read the details. I made a little search 1 minute ago and it says Hops raise "low" blood pressure and lower high blood pressure, (i.e. regulate blood pressure).

Didn't find one in English. the source is written in Arabic.
