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 esteem.
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. For more information on this subject and for where to find the highest quality suppliers and the most effective products see http://www.natural-breast-guide.com .
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.
