Do they work?These herbs have been used in folk medicine and in different cultures for thousands of years. They are recommended for breast enlargement and women's health by many leading herbalists. Until recently, however, they haven't received much media attention. The herbs gained attention with the publication of "The Green Pharmacy" in which Dr. James Duke discusses these oestrogen herbs and their mastogenic effects based on the database he compiled while researching for the FDA. This research added validity to what herbalists had been saying for years. They have now been featured on a number of television and radio shows showcasing women who have used the herbs successfully. We were skeptical of herbal breast enlargement at first but our research into the subject convinced us that, not only would the herbs work, they may also be beneficial to women's health. They could increase breast size, minimise symptoms of menopause, relieve constipation, control diabetes, reduce cholesterol, soothe sore throat pain and coughs, ease minor indigestion, relieve diarrhea, aid milk production in nursing mothers. We became aware of a number of companies selling breast enlargement formulas at ridiculous prices. They were making complicated formulas and selling them for outlandish prices under the impression that they had some "secret" formula. They don't. We began offering the pure, inexpensive, single herbs and the response was tremendous. Soon the results and re-orders began to pour in. Women were having excellent results due to the use of larger amounts of the pure herbs with higher concentrations of the needed nutrients. The Fennel tea bags, plus tinctures for massage, in addition to the capsules, were dramatically increasing results. Anyone considering implant surgery would do well to give the herbs a try first. Even the most difficult cases generally see results over a period of time.
How do they work?The human breast possesses oestrogen receptor sites which stimulate mammogenesis or the development of the mammary gland. These receptor sites are like a magnet attracting oestrogen to them. Herbs with natural oestrogenic properties from plant sources (phyto-oestrogens)bond to these receptor sites and promote breast tissue growth. Herbal databases indicate that Fenugreek, Saw Palmetto, Red Clover and Fennel seeds contain the highest levels of these natural oestrogens, phyto-nutrients and diosgenin. These phyto-nutrients are mild and are thought to have many health benefits. Because they can replace excess oestrogen in the system they can calm hormonal swings associated with PMS and menopause. Many chemical and environmental toxins can mimic oestrogen and attach to the receptor sites also. The plant nutrients can help to wash these out of the system also, aiding in the health of the breast tissue. From THE NUTRITION BIBLE By Jean Anderson and Barbara Deskins: "What they are: Plant hormones similar to but weaker than human oestrogens and other hormones that are believed to reduce the risk of breast and prostate cancer; also to minimise the mood swings and hot flushes associated with menopause. Some medical researchers believe that phyto-oestrogens may one day supplant current oestrogen-replacement therapy; unlike oestrogen, their downside is nil." In short: these herbs are thought to be beneficial to your health, are inexpensive to use, and can get the job done.
Are they safe?These herbs have been in common use for thousands of years and they are on the FDA's, and EU's list of safe foods and herbs. These are plants, not pharmaceutical drugs and their actions are mild. They would be similar in safety to something such as Garlic. They have been found to have many health benefits and are currently under study for controlling diabetes, easing the symptoms of PMS and menopause, and much more. They may be a healthy alternative to synthetic hormone replacement therapies. As with any herb or food there is always the possibility of allergic reactions. These are extremely rare with these herbs. Should you seem to have a problem, simply eliminate one herb at a time until you know which is causing the problem. You can then continue with the other herbs in the kits. The main note of caution is if you already have, or suspect you have breast cancer (or other oestrogen-related cancer), in which case you shouldn't take ANY herbs unless explicitly recommended by your Doctor.
How long do they take?For most women development of breast cells should commence in the first four to six weeks, though your breasts should look and feel fuller after as little as 7-10 days. The breasts should then begin to become larger and firmer. Optimal results are generally achieved in nine to eighteen months. The biggest mistake is to give up too soon. It is a little bit of work but the benefits are well worth the effort. Try to be consistent in taking the herbs. The best results have been achieved through the use of the capsules, Fennel tea and breast massage (with tinctures) in combination. If you can make the herbs a comfortable part of your daily routine, results will follow. Take the herbs for as long as you like to achieve your desired results. If results seem slow, gradually increase the amounts that you are using. The level needed varies from person to person. The growth progress stops when you stop using the herbs. Some slight reductions in size can occur, but the primary results remain. It is recommended you do not stop using the herbs for long periods if you wish the increases to continue, as the growth process will have to be re-initiated when you begin again. Individual results are difficult to predict. The women who see quick results tend to write the testimonials. But many women have seen good results after using the herbs for 6 months and longer. We don't mean to mislead anyone. The herbs probably do not work in all cases. But we have had such good results with the program that we do think that it is worth the effort to continue. The first sign of results will be very encouraging to women who are having problems getting started. It's thought a positive attitude to breast growth, and mental visualisation, can actually help results. This is because the act of imagining having bigger breasts can actually increase blood flow to your breasts, and a healthy blood flow is needed for all new tissue growth. So stay positive!
Which kit should I choose?Most customers choose the Enhancement Kit (Caps & Tincture) at £39.95. This contains the three main herbs in capsule form, 100ml Red Clover liquid tincture for use in beverages and breast massage, plus 50 Fennel teabags to take throughout the day. For those who do not like swallowing capsules, the Tinctures only kit is ideal at £35.95. If you want to start with something a bit less costly, the Capsules only kit is a good choice at £24.95. You can always add a bottle of herb tincture and/or some fennel tea bags to your routine at a later date if you choose. How do I use the herbs in the kits?
The amount that you will need for breast enhancement varies from person to person. There is no magical formula or specific ingredient. We have found the combination of herbs in the kits to be the most effective (see the link at your left for available kits). Simply get started according to the instructions and gradually increase the amounts until you find the level that produces results for you. Our instructions, included with your purchase, will get you started. It's important to use massage if you can as part of the program with any of the kits, not only because of phyto-oestrogen absorption through the skin, but also the physical act of massage increase circulation and blood flow to the breasts. Increased blood flow is a major stimulus for new tissue growth. A few minutes of massage per day and you will be on your way to more beautiful breasts.
How much larger will I get?Differences in metabolism and body chemistry can affect how quickly and effectively the herbs will work for you. We have had tremendous success with these herbs including many women who had achieved fullness and firmness with increases of 1, 2, and sometimes even 3 cup sizes. Lots of things get in the way of breast development during puberty. The herbs are thought to help women overcome these problems and reach their genetic capacity for breast size. The herbs are very helpful in firming up the sagging that comes after childbirth, breastfeeding or during menopause and tend to work very well for women in these situations. They can also be used to balance uneven breast size.
Will they cause weight gain or loss?No, the herbs will not cause weight gain or loss. They have very few calories themselves and are not noted for either weight gain or loss. The hormone balancing effects of the herbs should minimise water weight gain associated with menstrual cycles.
Will they effect birth control?As far as we know the herbs don't affect birth control. Many of our customers take these herbs as well as birth control pills with no reported problems.
Are results permanent?You do not have to keep taking the herbs when you have reached your goal. Your breasts will remain the same size though there may be a slight reduction in fullness. Many women continue with some of the herbs for the other health benefits and you can always use a few of the herbs again to firm up any sagging that comes with age, childbirth or breast feeding.
Do they increase sexual desire?The breast enlargement herbs will increase sexual desire in many women. Some have reported dramatic increases. This effect is mainly from the Fenugreek but the other herbs contribute. Some women also add Damiana and Dong-quai to increase this effect. And if your mate needs a boost share some Damiana with him. You may be surprised at the result!.
Why use these herbs?Fenugreek, Fennel, Saw Palmetto and Red Clover contain the highest concentrations of the plant elements recommended by herbalists for breast enhancement. Using whole herbs rather than extracts means our products contain compounds that may not be found in other formulas on the market. It's always best to use whole herbs, rather than herb extracts, as once you start trying to isolate certain chosen compounds you lose out on a lot of other benefits of the herbs. These herbs also have NO fillers. They contain nothing but pure herbs, in a vegetable cellulose shell. The herbs in the kits are also more versatile than the expensive formulas on the market. You can mix and match the different herbs to see which suit you. And the best results are achieved through using capsules, tea and tincture massage in combination. These herbs are also commonly used to treat PMS and menopause symptoms, balance blood sugar levels, lower cholesterol, and much more. If you suffer from menstrual cramps, you could also add Wild Yam to your routine.
Can they even out breast size?Uneven breast size is probably more common than you think and can be due to any number of things. Most women who have uneven breasts would like to correct them but the surgery can be expensive, painful and even dangerous. The herbal approach can be a great alternative. The process of evening out breast size can take a little time, but you should get there eventually. The key to balancing breast size is the massage. Massaging the smaller breast stimulates circulation and absorption of the herbs in the smaller breast only. Many women have used this method to increase the size of the smaller breast. If you are looking to increase both breasts in size but have one breast that is smaller than the other, the method would be to follow the instructions for the use of the herbs in one of the kits but massage only the smaller breast with the herb tincture until they even out. Any of the tinctures in this section can be used for breast massage. Massage a little tincture in lightly (about 5 minutes) at night and leave it on overnight. Try to use a little for massage every night. This will stimulate circulation and allow the nutrients to be absorbed topically. Even a little will help. If you do not wish to increase your general breast size but would like to increase the size of the smaller breast only, the method would again be to use the massage on the smaller breast, but don't take a high concentration of herbs by mouth. It may help to take at least some herbs internally (as tea, tincture or capsules), to introduce a few more of the nutrients into the body. Two to three capsules, 1 ml of tincture, or a cup of tea per day should not be enough to increase the breasts in general but may speed up the process of increasing the size of the smaller breast.
Why do the massage?As already mentioned, massaging with some of the tincture or even the herbs from a capsule mixed with lotion, will help quite a bit to boost results. Massage stimulates circulation in the breast tissue, speeding up reception of the nutrients from the body. Nutrients from the herbs will also be absorbed topically through the skin, which is why it's best to leave the mixture on for a period of time or even overnight if possible. These nutrients are absorbed even if it doesn't seem the herbs are completely absorbed out of the mixture and some residue remains. The massage can be used more often than once per day if you like. Just take care not to irritate your skin by massaging too much; five minutes or so of gentle massage is enough. The tinctures are best for breast massage. Any one from this section will be fine. You can also open a capsule of any of the herbs and add it to a little lotion. Thicker is better but if you don't care for the herb drying up and flaking off, just use more lotion and less herb. Even a little will help and you don't have to use so much that it creates a big mess.
Do they work for everyone?Probably not. Nothing works for everyone. Even the pharmaceutical wonder drugs don't work for everyone. (Some have remarkably low success rates). We have had tremendous success with these herbs and many women have avoided implant surgery because of them. The ones who don't see early results are the ones who tend to discontinue, generally without really giving the herbs a chance to work. Our experience has been that the women who stick with the herbs and use them correctly will see results. I know it's hard to be patient, but you should give it AT LEAST 6 months before deciding it's not working for you. And even then, the very least you should do is continue drinking Fennel tea. These are £2.45 per box so should be within anyone's budget! They will keep your body topped up with phytoestrogens in case you decide to try again with herbs in the future.
What else can I do to help with results?There are a number of things that we have found helpful in boosting results. There are quite a few other foods that contain some of the nutrients you need, and adding them to your diet will help. Soy is probably the most important. Any type of soy product is fine and soy milk is now readily available in most grocery stores. Also whole grains such as wheat, oat and barley will help and are healthy additions to your diet. Moderate use of caffeine or alcohol does not seek to affects results, however if you can replace any of these with the herb teas or other drinks, all the better. But do try to avoid tea, coffee and alcohol for at least half an hour before and after taking the herbs (as all three inhibit nutrient absorption). And try taking the herbs with fresh orange juice when possible (as Vitamin C aids nutrient absorption). Smoking may limit results somewhat since it restricts circulation. We would advise against trying all kinds of different herbs and formulas for short periods of time. This can confuse your system. Our research indicates these herbs are the best choice, and sticking with them will give you the greatest chances for success. We don't recommend some of the other exotic herbs you might hear about since they are not well known or well researched and could possibly be harmful. Goat's rue and prueria murifica are among these. Read over the "Tips and Tricks" in the brochure that comes with your herbs for more ideas.
Do they work for males?Male breast enlargement. This is not something that's been well researched. But as far as we can make out the answer is Yes! We have a growing number of genetic males using these herbs to stimulate breast growth. It's still early days but the situation looks promising. It's thought new breast cell growth can be stimulated in the male mammary glands just as in females. We've had reports that large amounts of phyto-oestrogenic herbs over a period of time can help to feminise the features and increase the size of the breasts. We're currently searching the literature to bring you more qualified information. There's strong reason to believe the herbs will work, especially Saw Palmetto, as a well known side effects in men taking Saw Palmetto for Prostate problems is male breast growth. This is even at the lower doses. Saw Palmetto is thought to be an anti-androgen as well as phyto-oetrogenic, so should be ideal for genetic males as the oestrogen effects shouldn't get swamped by the presence of testosterone. The herbs may well be an alternative to synthetic hormone therapy for transgendering males. The synthetic hormones nearly always seem to carry some risks and the weaker plant oestrogen's are not thought to have these same associated risks. In fact they have the same health benefits for men as for women, with prostate health thrown in as an extra bonus! As we mentioned, Saw Palmetto is a good herb to start with. And Black Cohosh is also often recommended for genetic males. Other herbs rich in phyto-oestrogens are: Fenugreek, Fennel, and Red Clover. Any feedback is welcome. Please let us know how you get on.

We fully guarantee the quality and purity of the herbs and we take care of any shipping problems. And we are always here to help with the use of the herbs. We do not want to enter the arena of guaranteeing results with the herbs. There is too much dishonesty and too wide a variety of expectations. Prices would have to be raised for everyone. We are not selling you £5.00 worth of herbs for £40.00, £60.00 or even £250.00 as the formula companies do. These companies know that, even if their herbs don't work, there will be a limited number of returns and the price of their product will more than make up for these. We are offering you a chance to try these healthy and beneficial herbs at a tremendous discount and we are dedicated to your success. You can buy the commercial formulas if you like, but why pay the high prices they charge for common herbs. You know nothing of the source and quality of the herbs in these formulas. You can buy our pure herbs at a fraction of the cost. Be certain you are getting a quality product, and give yourself the best chance for success. Good luck!
