Bitch tits by Beer

Don’t you find it ironic that something which is associated with masculinity is also the cause of enhanced femininity within males? How did we get to a point in our ‘advanced’ civilization that we not only glorify alcohol consumption, we legalize it, sell it, advertise it and make it socially acceptable to get wasted and write ourselves off? Yet on the other hand there is a common consensus out there (especially among bodybuilders) that soy is an evil estrogenic plant that will kill  your gains and give you bitch tits (but that’s another story).

So what is it about beer that makes it so bad for men to consume it? Well lets look at the facts.

  • When consumed, alcohol stimulates the release of beta-endorphins which suggests that they could have an inhibitory effect on testicular testosterone. (source)
  • Ethanol has been shown to decrease testosterone synthesis. (source)
  • Heavy alcohol consumption can lead to the aromatization of androgens into estrogen. (source)

‘Well that’s all about alcohol and not beer specifically’ you might be saying. True, so what is it about beer that makes it the worst drink for a man to drink? To put it simple, it’s one of the ingredients used in the production of beer – Hops.

Hops contain one the most potent estrogenic substances found in plants (source), not only do they contain strong phytoestrogens (8PN / hopein) but they can actually interact with your hormones by binding to your estrogen receptors. This can lead to an increase in overall estrogen within males which in turn can lead to…

  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low energy
  • Loss of muscle mass (source)
  • Type 2 diabetes (source)
  • Increased abdominal fat (why do you think it’s called a beer belly)
  • Depression (source)
  • Gynecomastia (Male bitch tits) (source)

If you’re into your health, fitness or bodybuilding it would be wise to avoid beer (and alcohol for that matter) unless you want to wind up messing with your natural hormone levels and risk getting all or some of the above conditions. So think about it next time you go out for a drink and reach for that beer, do you want to kill your gains and end up with bitch tits? Probably not, but ultimately the choice is up to you and I’m merely conveying some useful food for thought.
