Thumbs up Hops against obesity and diabetes

Research on mice has shown that tetrahydro iso-alpha acids from hops have a strong anti-inflammatory potential, reducing weight in obese mice, and improving insulin sensitivity in diabetic mice.

There are always dozens of reasons why something "can't" be done. That's no excuse in my book. If you want it bad enough, you find a way. That's how life works for grown ups. -- Booger

Don't be afraid to be open-minded. Your brain won't fall out.

I can refute this in two words: beer belly.

And if it were true, beer would be the cure (instead of part of the cause) of metabolic syndrome and diabetes.

Hops are also a thyroid antagonist.
