How does Hops work?

The chemicals in hops seem to have weak estrogen effects.

Are there safety concerns?

Hops are considered safe for most people.

Do not take hops if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You have been diagnosed with depression.
  • You are scheduled for surgery in the next two weeks. Hops might cause excessive sedation if combined with medications used during and after surgery.
