Have you ever taken Hops?

No, not in beer... but the herb? If so, why and what were the results, pros and cons??

  • I tried it when I wanted to increase my milk supply during nursing. No luck, and it didn't help my insomnia, either, which I was hoping for as a welcome side effect. I hope it helps yours if you try it.

  • I have not but I'm not an advocate for natural herbs w/o tons of research.
    If it's not FDA approved, O run the other way.
