|Beer For Babies' Milk
In addition to stocking up on diapers and wipes,
families in Germany preparing for a newborn often
make beer runs—for the breast-feeding mom-to-be.
Nurses and midwives in the country commonly
recommend a steady stream of alcohol-free wheat
beer to boost breast milk supply. But does cracking
open a frosty brew actually help boost breast milk
production? Science says it just might.
In a new study just publlished University of Munich
nutritionist Berthold Koletzko gave beer to non-
breast-feeding women, levels of prolactin in their
blood rose. This is significant because prolactin is a
hormone responsible for initiating lactation in women.
Studies in sheep showed that beer powder, barley
extract, and a crude malt extract triggered a
prolactin rise, whereas a hop extract had no effect.

ones go too soon.” Now, it’s Bryan’s own beer brand, Two Lane, which is gone too
