Food Sources of Phytoestrogens
The effects of phytoestrogens are the basis of breast enhancement by Breast Actives. The breast enhancement herbs in the Breast Actives formulation are selected primarily on the basis of their phytoestrogen content. But, you will want to know what phytoestrogens are and how they can be used for enlarging and enhancing the breasts, and for any other health benefits.
Phytoestrogens are much in the news these days as natural, non-surgical alternatives for breast enlargement.
Also for hormone replacement therapy in the case of menopausal women.
The word “phytoestrogen” is derived from “phyto”, which means plant, and “estrogen” because of their ability to mimic the effects of estrogen in the body. Phytoestrogens are similar in chemical structure to estrogens and do have similar effects. But, they are different from the estrogen hormone produced in female bodies. Phytoestrogens are a group of compounds that are found in various plants. These compounds can mimic the effects of estrogen in the female body.
Phytoestrogens are classified into four main groups and these groups are then further subdivided. The four main groups are:
- soy isoflavones
- resorcylic acid lactones
The group that is most effective as a supplement that mimics the effects of estrogen, and has a structure most like estrogen, is the soy isoflavones group.
Phytoestrogens for Breast Enlargement and Enhancement
There are several products in the form of pills and creams, such Breast Actives, that are being promoted for natural breast enlargement using plant extracts containing phytoestrogens as the primary ingredients. These are combined with other natural herbs known to have some level of breast enhancement and hormone balancing effects. So, are these products effective, do they actually enlarge and enhance the breasts, and are they safe to use?
The answer to that question is somewhat complex. Firstly, one should not use any of these products for more than a maximum of nine months continuously. Prolonged usage, of over nine months, could be harmful because it is unnatural to maintain this higher level of estrogen activity for such prolonged periods. High quality herbal breast enhancement products, based on phytoestrogens, are expected to achieve the enlargement goals in 6 to 7 months. For instance, Breast Actives guarantees successful breast enhancement within 6 months.
When used correctly and along with a with a balanced and healthy diet, phytoestrogens are being successfully used, for female breast enlargement and enhancement. As additional benefits, phytoestrogens can and do relieve symptoms of hormonal imbalance (for example, as in menopause), decreased libido and sex response and other female hormone-connected problems that are commonly experienced by women.
How Phytoestrogens Work for Breast Enhancement
The female hormone, estrogen, is essential for the normal sexual development of girls as they go through puberty. This includes the development of breasts, uterus and ovaries. The access of estrogen to the reproductive tissues, breasts and uterus, is controlled by substances known as estrogen receptors that function as gatekeepers.
Only estrogen, or substances that are structurally similar to estrogen, can bind with the receptors. Phytoestrogens, because they are structurally similar to estrogen, are able to pass through and bind with the receptors, thereby helping to maintain the estrogen balance.
Phytoestrogens, by binding with the estrogen receptors in the breasts and by the effect of natural balancing of female hormones, cause further development of the tissues of the mammary glands, thus enlarging and enhancing the breasts. Most women taking correctly formulated phytoestrogen-based supplements experience a significant increase in the size, fullness, shape and firmness of their boobs.
Phytogen Research Studies
Clinical research studies on Breast Augmentation by the Effect of Phytoestrogen were conducted by Dr. Jin Wha Chung, M.D. of St. Mary’s Hospital, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, Korea. The objective of this research was to evaluate and measure the effect of phytoestrogen in increasing breast size clinically and histologically.
The experiment included 30 women between the ages of 24 and 35 years, who were given phyoestrogen tablets over a period of 6 months. Breast measurements were taken at start, after 3 months and after 6 months. Values of liver and renal function and cholesterol levels were monitored by blood tests.
The experiment also included 30 female mice, 15 of them as control and 15 given phytoestrogen. The mice were slaughtered after 3 months for microscopic examination of breast and nipple tissues and cells.
From the data collected in this research, Dr. Jin Wha Chung concluded ” taking phytoestrogen for 6 months is associated with the breast enhancement of pre-menopausal women, and its mechanism is presumably, as the results of mouse experiment show, the increase in the number of mammary glands and their constituent cells. Other than that, there were some subjective changes. For instance, women who took phytoestrogen reported that their breasts increased, and that their skin and hair became more beautiful.”
The researcher states that the results of the study “show meaningful augmentation of the breast in group taking phytoestrogen tablets for 6 months and in mouse study, study group showed more lobules and more duct cells in lobules than control group histologically. The results mean phytoestrogen has weak estrogenic effect on the lobular structures of the breast tissue and finally increasing their size without any significant side effect.”
Researchers and scientists are only now beginning to understand the beneficial effects that supplements containing phytoestrogens, can have for women. These range from breast enlargement and enhancement, relief from menopause symptoms, and correcting hormonal imbalances.
However, it is important to exercise care in choosing any phytoestrogen-based product. Quality and purity levels can, and do, vary greatly between different brands. Research the manufacturer and the seller to determine reliability, reputation and history.
Breast Actives is a phytoestrogen-based, natural breast enhancement product, manufactured in the USA in an FDA approved facility by Ultra Herbal. This is a company with a long history of producing high quality and reliable herbal supplements for male and female enhancement.
