Hops; Humulus

This is about hops including its hormonal properties, and use for breast enlargement and hormone balance.

Etymology

The genus of hops goes by the scientific name of Humulus. It belongs to the Cannabaceae family.

Properties

Hops lowers FSH and LH, and it indirectly raises prolactin. The potent phytohormone 8-prenylnaringenin (8PN) from Humulus was found to have this hormonal effect. 8PN is also a powerful estrogen analog that is specifically an agonist of ERα which effects are shown in the breasts. In small amounts, hops sensitizes progesterone receptors.

Use

Humulus for breast enhancement

Hops can be taken during secretory phase, and only once during menstruation.

Hops should not be taken in any combination during proliferative phase and ovulation, as this can cause breast shrinking and contribute to hormone imbalances.

Specific herb programs using hops that cause breast growth can be seen in hops01, anon03 and hirsutism02.

Humulus or herbs with similar properties, can potentially be seen in the program journals of: anon03, anon05, hirsutism01 and hirsutism02. These programs have descriptions of results from combination herb use.

Herb timing and combinations' success for breast enhancement relies on menstrual phases. Most herbs are taken as teas.

Similar herbs

Blessed milk thistle (Silybum) also increases prolactin. Silymarin contained in thistle upregulates ERβ, so it would likely require different companion herbs than hops.

Black cohosh can lower LH perhaps similarly to hops.

Precautions

Handling or ingesting hops during proliferative or ovulation can cause hormone imbalances. It is also expected to worsen mood, if taken during this time.

Humulus can also act as a serious irritant, especially during proliferative and ovulation. Some show allergic reactions to hops, even by touch, so proliferative and ovulation may be the time where its symptoms can be worse. Wash hands and scrub fingernails thoroughly to prevent hops oils from spreading, if this is the case. Anti-histamines (over counter allergy medication) and fiber (not from foods containing phyto-estrogens) should help. Sunflower seed seemed to cause a slight improvement in hormone balance and from allergic-like symptoms.

See precautions for more details of care to be taken with herb use. Proper nutrition is a consideration for health. Also, check for the latest blog updates about herb and hormone safety.

It is very important that menses be light and not prolonged.

If you have hirsutism, PCOS, hot-flashes, other signs of hormone imbalances, see estrogen-imbalance, and hirsutism program journals #1 and #2 before trying herbs.

Herb concentrates can be tens of times more potent by weight than herbs in solid form. This can easily lead to hormone imbalances. For this reason, concentrate extracts are not recommended for extended or excessive internal use, especially during fertility years. Concentrates shouldn't be used to overcome plateaus. Another issue with herbal extracts, is that they may not have the full range of properties of the herb. Essential oils are not recommended for breast enhancement. If opting to use herb extracts, use no more than 1 drop at a time diluted in a food-grade carrier oil (like unrefined olive oil), or water.
