I read somewhere that hops raise blood pressure, How do you avoid this if you drink beer daily? :rockin:
Yes, I live in a muslim country and drinking any kind of alcohol (not only date wine as david said) is prohibited. so you can obey and worship God properly.:rockin: alcohol is a sin. so if religious police (mutawa) find you having a beer you'll spend the rest of the night in jail. I LIVE IN THIS COUNTRYThe source is in Arabic...hmmm... don't muslims abstain?
I don't know about women, but it will for men.On t.v i saw where hops will help a women grow bigger boobs.
That raises my blood pressure when a busty women is drinking a IPA
Very true. Hops contains phyto-estrogens ("plant estrogens") and in botanical medicine can be used in conjunction with other herbs to balance female hormones. On the plus side, hops are quite calming and good for digestion (especially indigestion due to anxiety). I'm not sure which of those properties transfer over to beer, but those are its uses in alcohol tinctures.I don't know about women, but it will for men.
The estrogenic compounds in hops are very similar to human estrogen. Anecdotal stories from the late 1800's are of women all menstruating 3 days after harvest began and men starting lactation. Then there's "brewer's drop", which doesn't refer to the beer belly...
