Anti-mullerian hormone - July 06, 2019
High levels of anti-mullerian hormone (AMH) is associated with high LH and high androgens for those with PCOS. AMH levels are measured to indicate potential fertility. Lowered fertility likely has to do with reduced FSH and estrogen sensitivity.
Anethole & estragole - June 25, 2019
Many known stilbenes are estrogen receptor antagonists. Stilbenes and their polymers include: anethole, dianethole, estragole, tamoxifen, stilbene and stilbestrol.
Spearmint and fennel contain stilbenes as active hormonal constituents. Based on anecdotal information from spearmint's and fennel's actions, anethole, dianethole and estragole are likely ERα selective.
Anethole is another name for transanethole, and Stilbene is another term for transtilbene. Estragole and anethole are isomers. Dianethole and photoanethole are polymers of anethole.
Updates - June 04, 2019
Breast and hip tissue should increase the ability for estrogen conversion from androgens.
The term hormone receptor blockers is inaccurate to describe hormones' effects according to this research. Phytohormones can multiply, act directly on or cause an inverse action of hormone effects or of other phytohormones. A phytohormone's basic actions are agonize, antagonize and influence bodily hormones. These actions desensitize or sensitize receptors, and increase a bodily response. The ultimate effect depends on the presence of other phytohormones and bodily hormones.
Caffeine, for instance, can cause an inverse effect of shrinking tissue size, when added to a herb combination that would otherwise cause growth. Update in schedule: sunflower must not be used in the presence of when negative symptoms occur.

Papaya, Black walnut - May 27, 2019
Papaya seeds kill intestinal parasites. Black walnut (Juglans nigra) hull as extract or powder also kills worms. Juglans can cause a hormone imbalance with excessive or extended use, so a small amount is recommeneded.
There are other herbs that can get rid of intestinal parasites, but papaya seeds and black wallnut hulls are safer and highly effective. Pineapple also breaks down worms. Pumpkin seed only works against certain species of intestinal worms, and it doesn't completely destroy them. Wormwood kills intestinal worms, but it is easily toxic in high doses.
Breast Development and Endocrinology, 3rd Ed - May 22, 2019
Expanded and clarified details for Breast Development and Endocrinology 3rd edition. From now on, this will be volume 1.
These edits will reflect in Super Bazongas. Herb schedule will be edited, but same herb combinations will be used as basis. Future releases of Super Bazongas will be volume 2.
Vitamin supplementation - April 17, 2019
There has been recent controversy about vitamin supplementation. From now on, suggestions will be limited.
Vitamin C will be suggested, as it preserves fat soluble vitamin E, and possibly other fat soluble vitamins and antioxidants. Vitamin E may be used, but use it sparingly and with foods with fiber. If you take vitamin D, be sure it is in a complex with calcium, magnesium and zinc. Vitamin B12 supplementation (with B vitamins complex) is only for those who don't eat meat, dairy or eggs.
See /appendix/nutrition for vitamin amounts and for information on nutritious foods.
Acne - March 19, 2019
Acne is caused by androgens, glucocorticoids, corticotropin and insulin. Androgens trigger the production of sebum from sebaceus glands, which causes acne. Insulin affects the size of sebaceus glands. Unfortunately, hair follicles transform mild androgens into DHT, which hirsutism symptoms often show up after acne symptoms go away.
When there's acne, there's potential to use herbs with an estrogen analog to cause breast growth. The problem is, acne caused by herbs has seemed to antagonize one of two estrogen receptors before. If the estrogen simile targets the wrong receptor, the herb won't work, and there's potential for negative effects. It is much better to use the right herb combination, than to try to react by adding herbs later. If the correct herb compliment is taken moments late, that can also cause negative results.
