If you have ever had the chance to smell a hops plant, then you know it has hypnotic effects. Harvesting any of the plants of the hemp family can make you quite sleepy. Cannabis, which is used to produce Hashish and Marijuana, is a close relative of hops. The relaxing effect that beer has on the consumer comes from the hops ingredient hopein, among other substances. Hopein is a form of morphine.
Apart from their mind-altering effects, hops are known to work as an anti-aphrodisiac, suppressing sexual drive and performance in men. Hops contain the female sex hormones daidzein and genistein, which are generally used to fatten calves, sheep, and chickens. Contrary to general belief, the body cannot utilize any of the numerous calories contained in whiskey or other alcoholic beverages for producing energy or increasing fat reserves.
Beer contains another female hormone, an estrogen, which is also formed in a woman’s ovaries. The typical beer belly and breast growth of a beer drinker is caused by these female hormones and has nothing to do with beer calories.
Here it is, the reason! Although earlier I felt that the weight gain is due to the high caloric content of beer.
It turns out that chicken meat also contains 6 female hormones.
Be careful when buying chicken pieces. Some breeders apparently been injected chicken with estrogen. The hormone is injected toaccelerate the growth of animals so known as growth hormone.
