Herbs are an important part of any natural breast enlargement regimen and it’s important to understand them. In this post we’ll go over some of the most effective herbs you need to take advantage of if you want to increase the size of your breasts naturally.
The 4 Most Important Hormones You Must Know
Before we get into the list of herbs it’s important to highlight some of the most basic hormones involved in natural breast growth. All of these hormones play a specific role, and each herb helps stimulate one or more of them. Once you learn what each herb does you’ll be able to put together your own daily regimen.
Phyto-estrogens mimic our body’s own estrogen, and they are produced by plants. That’s why your diet and the foods you eat play a big role in natural breast enlargement. A couple of the most powerful phytoestrogens are isoflavones and lignans.
Phyto-esrtogens will help increase your breasts by stimulating the estrogens naturally produced by your body. This stimulation of your body’s own estrogen will help the milk ducts get bigger, which will lead to a bigger breast size.
Phyto-porgestins are plant based progesterones. Your body naturally produces progesterone or progestin hormones, which help prepare and maintain pregnancy, sex hormones, and other behaviors. Both the alveolas and milk glands get bigger due to the progesterone the body produces. Phyto-progestins also help make the breasts more round.
Androgens are known as the male hormones, which are produced by testosterone. You need herbs that are considered anti-adrogens because they will help prevent the testerone in your body from producing dihydrotestosterone or DHT.
DHT is the reason why men tend to handle stress better than women, have more body and facial hair, and high libido. Taking an anti-androgen herb will help reduce the amount of DHT in your system so that estrogens (female hormones that ultimately help the breasts grow) have more room. Since testosterone is what also creates estrogens it makes sense to focus on decreasing the amount of androgens rather than testosterone itself.
Prolactin is the hormone that is known for helping women produce milk. This hormone comes from the pituitary gland and not only does it help with producing milk, but also regulating the immune system.
When prolactin activates the production of breast milk it will lead to swelling. The swelling is what causes the growth, because your breast tissues grows when they stretch.
Check out the list of herbs below and what they help you do.
This herb is grown in the northern areas of Thailand. When it comes to women’s health this herb stands out thanks to the high amount of phytoestrogens it contains. Miroestrol is the name of one of the phytoestrogens that pueraria mirifica contains. This phytoestrogen is believed to be many times stronger compared to isoflalvones.
Miroestrol will mimic the effect your body’s own hormones have on estrogen receptors. Other phtyoestrogens pueraria mirifica contains include puerarin, daidzein, and puerarin. You can either get harvested pueraria mirifica or you can get it wild.
Wild pueraria mirifica is normally higher in phytoestrogens than the cultivated version. We started off the list with PM because it’s the herb with the most phytoestrogenic activity.
With that being said, make sure you’re not suffering from a condition like estrogen dominance before you begin taking this potent phytoestrogen. Pueraria mirifica is also considered an anti-androgen, which will help reduce testosterone levels.
Another potent phytoestrogen are hops. Primarily grown in countries such as Poland, Germany, and South Korea, this herb contains a phytoestrogen named 8-prenylnaringenin. The hop plant is actually used to help flavor and preserve beer. The estrogenic activity in this herb is considered one of the most potent, and it’s also considered an anti-androgen.
Not only is wild yam packed with phytoestrogens, but it’s also considered an anti-androgen. Also, this herb helps the body produce more prolactin and progesterone, and it’s also considered an anti-androgen.
This herb grows in areas like Tennessee and Boston. The phyto-estrogen in wild yam to pay attention to is diosgenin, which will help improve estrogenic activity in your body.
Also called dock or sorrel, sheep sorrel is a great herb for breast enhancement because it contains many phytoestrogens that stimulate your body’s own estrogen. The 2 kinds of sheep sorrel that’s commonly used are French sorrel and wild sorrel.
Fenugreek is definitely one of the more popular herbs on this list. It contains a high amount of phytoestrogens including diosgenin, tigogenin, gitogenin, and yamogenin.
These plant estrogens will mimic your own estrogen and help your breasts grow in size and fullness. Fenugreek is also known to increase prolactin and progesterone levels. In fact, some newly mothers use fenugreek to increase their milk flow while they breastfeed.
This herb is rich with phytoestrogens, which includes: peganine, luteolin, flavonoids, carnavine, and galegine. Goat’s rue is grown in the Middle East and some parts of Europe.
Farmers use goat’s rue to feed animals like goats. It’s believed that goat’s experience an increase in milk production when they eat goat’s rue, which is how it got it’s name. This herb will help increase your breast size by producing more prolactin, which will increase milk supply and builds more breast tissue.
Saw palmetto is also another popular herb used to help enlarge breasts naturally. It’s primarily grown in the state of Florida, and it’s berries are extracted to make saw palmetto extract.
The reason why adding saw palmetto to your herbal routine is a good idea is because it’s an anti-androgen. Since saw palmetto is an anti-androgen it will reduce the amount DHT is in your body.
You want your DHT levels to be considerably lower than your other hormones like estrogen and progesterone, because DHT is a male hormone that can slow down or prevent breast growth.
Fennel contains a high level of phytoprogestins that helps stimulate your body’s own progesterone. Fennel also helps the body produce more prolactin, which stimulates milk production and breast tissue growth.
There are a wide variety of different soy products out there which include soy milk, soybeans, and soy cheese. Soy products contain isoflavones, which are powerful phytoestrogens. In fact, soybeans contain the highest level of isoflavones that you can add to your diet.
The phytoestrogens in soy will bind to your estrogen receptors and promote breast growth. The isoflavones will also help protect you from breast cancer by regulating cell growth. This is why some experts believe countries like China where soy is heavy in their diet don’t develop breast cancer as much as Western countries.
Flaxseeds is part of the linum family, which is a family of flowering plants. The phtyoestrogens in flaxseeds are known as lignans. In fact, flaxseeds contain the highest source of lignan out of all foods you can eat.
Lignans that come from this herb act as your body’s own estrogen to help stimulate breast development and also may help protect the body against cancer cells. Flaxseeds also help increase sex hormone-binding globulin or SHBG levels.
Licorice is used heavily in the food industry as a flavor agent in both foods and beverages. The root of licorice is what’s commonly used for its health benefits. Licorice is rich in phytoestrogens such as glabridin. These phytoestrogens will help carry out several of the tasks that the body’s own estrogens are responsible for.f
The phytoestrogens contained in licorice has a mild estrogenic effect, which makes it useful for natural breast enlargement. Licorice also contains anti-androgen properties, phyto-progestins, and helps increase levels of prolactin in the body.
Red clover is another herb that contains a high amount of phytoestrogens, which consists mostly of isoflavones. These isoflavones will attach themselves to the estrogen receptors in your body, primarily inside the blood vessels, heart, bladder, and bones. This herb also contains a good amount of phtyo-progestins.
This is a list of some of the most popular and effective herbs used in natural breast enhancement. How much of each herb you take will depend on you and your body.
Start of taking a few of them slowly and gradually increase your dosage if you notice good results. It’s all about seeing how your body (mainly your breasts) react to each herb, as they all have individual uses.
