Fuller Breasts from Supplements?
Can you get fuller breasts from natural breast enhancement supplements?
There have, in very recent years, been a flood of breast enhancement and breast
enlargement supplements put on the market. All of them make the same claims
of being an effective and safe alternative to breast augmentation surgery. For
many women, small or unattractively shaped and sized breasts are a major source
of genuine insecurity and emotional distress. As trivial as this may sound to
some, a women's perception of her breasts can have a real impact on her self
With the increasing popularity and prevalence of cosmetic surgery, and especially
breast implant surgery, we see increasing numbers of women who seem paradoxically
blessed with size 2 waists, and buxom bosoms. It's easy to say you should be
happy with what you were born with, but the fact is you can't change how you
feel about certain things, and if your breasts are a source of negative body
image or low self esteem, you've probably looked into ways to change your bustline,
maybe even considered cosmetic surgery to achieve your desired results.
If you've done your homework, you've probably noticed there are now several
breast enhancement supplements on the market. These products really can be effective
when used correctly and over a period of several months, as long as the product
chosen is of a concentrated potency and high quality. We are going to examine
the common ingredients found in all of these natural breast augmentation supplements
and what their effects have been when used in traditional herbal and naturopathic
medicine. Most of the common herbs and compounds discussed here started to gain
attention with the publication of "The Green Pharmacy" in which Dr.
James Duke discussed their hormone-balancing properties.
One of the primary ingredients is Saw Palmetto, prescribed by naturopathic
doctors as a means to increase breast size, a hormonal regulator, sexual stimulation,
urinary tract infections, and weight regulation. Second, we find Damiana, traditionally
used for treating depression, anxiety and nervousness. It has been widely held
to promote a sense of well being and is a traditional herbal prescription for
hormone imbalances, poor mammary gland (breast tissue) development, decreased
sex drive, menopause, infertility and PMS.
Dong Quai is another herb found in these supplements which is primarily used
to treat an array of female problems related to hormonal imbalances and lack
of estrogen production. Blessed Thistle, another common ingredient, has an extensive
history of use as a restorative herb that supports the female reproductive organs.
Also, because it is considered to be an excellent heart tonic and blood purifier,
it allows the others herbs to absorb and work more effectively.
Wild Yam is the most widely used herbal remedy for female health. Wild Yam
contains diosgenin, a producer of progesterone (a female hormone), which makes
it popular for treating PMS. It is widely used as a female breast enhancer and
a sexual stimulant. Fenugreek, a product of American folk medicine, was considered
a very effective menstruation promoter. Modern scientists have confirmed that
Fenugreek contains the chemicals diosgenin and isoflavones, very similar to
the female sex hormone estrogen. It's properties mimic the effect of estrogen
in the female body. This herb provides a mastogenic effect resulting in the
swelling and growth of healthy breast tissue.
Fennel Seed is another compound commonly used. It's estrogen-mimicking properties
are second only to Fenugreek. In addition, Fennel works as an appetite suppressant
and stabilizes the nervous system. It also helps move waste out of the body.
Lastly, there are Hops and Avena Sativa (Wild Oats). Hops are commonly used
to treat anxiety and other stress related symptoms. Hops has a relaxing effect
on the uterus, hence it's utilization as a menstrual cramping treatment. Avena
Sativa, or Wild Oats, is another common remedy for stress and anxiety. It is
also used as a aphrodisiac and anti-addiction treatment.
There you have it. Those are the primary ingredients you will find in most
herbal breast enlargement pills on the market today. The key to finding the
best supplements is to know which companies use the purest grade of these herbs,
allowing for maximum potency and optimal bodily absorption. The higher the potency
and quality of each ingredient, the better your results will be with these products
so choose wisely.
Don't base your choice solely on price or name, as you could be cutting yourself
short on attaining the best results. Look for products that show before and
after photos and give mutliple testimonials. Also, you should only go with a
product that offers a money back guarantee.
You should know that taking these supplements can yield some additional benefits
after a few weeks. Reported side effects in clinical trials, testimonials and
commentary, have shown the following:
- Elevated mood
- Fuller lips (from increased levels of estrogen while on product)
- Clearer skin (some women report brief breakouts at the start, but then
unusually clear skin afterwards)
- Diminished PMS symptoms
- Increased regularity and decreased severity of menstrual cycles
These side effects actually make sense when you look at the hormone balancing
properties of most of the herbs and compounds that make up these concoctions.
So, if you're thinking about trying one of these products, go ahead. Most of
the better ones come with a satisfaction and money back guarantee, so there's
really nothing to lose. Just make sure you stick to the recommended dosage for
AT LEAST 3 MONTHS if not more. You must allow your body time to adapt to, absorb,
and respond to the compounds in the treatment in order for it to have any type
of effect on your breast size.
Another word of advice - if you're looking for double D cups and you have
A cups currently, don't waste your money or time on a breast pill as you will
only be let down. This type of growth is extremely rare and you will be disappointed.
But, if you're looking for a more modest increase in bust size, like 1/2 to
2 cup sizes, increased firmness, volume and contour, go for it! There really
is nothing to lose.
