Common norm of alcohol consumption for men is no more than 40 grams of pure alcohol per day
The beer that we buy in Ukrainian supermarkets, passed the necessary processing and does not contain amounts of phytoestrogens sufficient to provoke the emergence of hormonal failures.
This was told by the endocrinologist Yulia Danilova.
As the expert noted, after the media began to appear information about the content in beer female hormones – phytoestrogens proponents of a healthy lifestyle began to assert that drinking beer leads to feminization. That is – to the development of the male female secondary sex characteristics (for example, breast growth).
“In the cones of hops used in beer production, do contain phytoestrogens. Some studies indicate that women who worked on the plantations for the collection of hop cones was observed hormonal disorders, — said the doctor. — However, the beer that we buy in Ukrainian supermarkets that has passed the necessary treatment, does not contain amounts of phytoestrogens sufficient to provoke the emergence of hormonal failures.
To ensure that the phytoestrogen had a negative impact on the male body, you need to drink 550 liters of beer daily. Of course, so much drink to consume physically impossible. Even if you really want.
The feminization is not the hormones contained in the beer, and the alcohol itself. Alcohol is known to contain ethanol, and it is the enemy of testosterone. The presence of alcohol in the blood makes the body to properly synthesize this hormone.
Therefore, when men abuse the beer, they are doing themselves a disservice, because the reduction of testosterone synthesis is a signal that the male body dominated the synthesis of female hormones. Visually, this manifests itself in the form of a feminine body (breast growth, belly and the excess weight).
Common norm of alcohol consumption for men is no more than 40 grams of pure alcohol per day. Suggest to adhere to this rule because the ability to know when to stop – one of the hallmarks of human culture”.
By the way, as we wrote earlier, scientists have proved that alcohol actually improves memory. It is considered that alcohol affects our ability to retain memories. But usually we are harder to remember information received after intoxication.
At the same time, despite the fact that alcohol really inhibits anterograde memory, it is at the same time, improves retrograde memory – people remember best the information received to the use of alcohol.
The authors of the study decided to make it more realistic by placing people in a more natural environment and allowing them to decide how much they want to drink.

The study involved 88 people aged 18 to 54 years (mean age 23 years), most of which were men. First, the volunteers were at home, had to memorize words that look real but contain extra letters (e.g., frenzylk from the word frenzy, rage).
Once psychologists became convinced that the subjects coped with the task, half of them were given 2 hours to drink as much alcohol as they want. At the end of the break, the participants performed another task memory images, after which they were allowed to continue to drink.
The next morning, scientists have measured the amount of alcohol in the blood of volunteers, and also asked to say approximately how much they drank yesterday. On average, the total dose of alcohol per capita amounted to 82,59 grams (about a Cup of vodka).
Then all passed memory test. While a control group who drank soft drinks, remembered about the same number of words before a two-hour break, and the next morning, the test group, it increased significantly. This effect was more pronounced in those who drank more consistent with past results.
In the case of images, the researchers found significant differences only in the control group, the next day he remembered less pictures. Thus, the study confirmed that alcohol improves the ability to remember information received the day before not only in the laboratory with controlled doses, but when used at home.
While the exact explanation of this phenomenon is not. Psychologists suggest that this may be due to the relief from consolidation, as well as alcohol’s influence on the processes occurring in the brain during sleep.
Earlier, we wrote how much you can drink, doctors called harmless dose of alcohol.
People who are unwilling or unable to give up drinking completely, you should at least decrease the dose of alcohol. Scientists have calculated a “reasonable” level of spirits.
