Botanical Breast Enhancement: Guide

Hormones

Steroid

Cholesterol is a sterol and a steroid that is the precursor to other steroid hormones. Steroid hormones are fat soluble.

Progestogens are precusors to androgens and corticosteroids. Progestogens are a class of hormone also known as progesterones and progestins. Progesterone is also an individual hormone within the progestogens class. Progesterone is known as the gestation or luteal phase hormone.

Estrogens are metabolized from androgens.

Glucocorticoids and Mineralocorticoids are classes of hormones collectively known as corticoids, formed from progestogens. Corticoids, also known as corticosteroids, are formed in the adrenal glands. Glucocorticoids maintain glucose levels. Mineralcorticoids regulate salts in the body.

Amino

Amino-based hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle include: follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), prolactin (Prl), anti-müllerian hormone (AMH) and inhibin. These hormones are water soluble.

Receptors

Steroid receptors

Estrogen receptor alpha (ERα) is located in the breasts, fallopian tubes and pituitary gland. Estrogen receptor beta (ERβ) is located within ovarian, egg, bone, brain and adipose tissues.

Progesterone receptor A (PRA) is located in the reproductive tract. Progesterone receptor B (PRB) is located in the breasts. There are two other progesterone receptor subtypes, but there is scarce information available about them.

Androgen receptor (AR) doesn't have any subtypes.

Other receptors

FSH, LH, Prl, AMH and inhibin have corresponding receptors.

Enzymes

Enzymes within cells are responsible for converting hormones into different forms. Aromatase is an enzyme that converts androgens, with the exception of dihydro-testosterone (DHT), into estrogens.

Phytohormones (& more)

The focus is phytohormones, but other hormones are included for reference if they belong to same categories. These will be classified according to their category. Some phytohormones increase cellular metabolism.

Not every category or phytochemical within the categories is safe.

Cholestanes

Cholestane is the class which cholesterol belongs to.

Sitosterols including beta-sitosterol belongs to this class.

Spirostan is a class of cholestane that is less identical to cholesterol than sitosterols. Diosgenin, dioscin, yamogenin, sarsaponin, sarsasapogenin, luteone and asparanin B (shatavarin IV) are spirostans.

Flavonoids

  • Anthocyanins
  • Chalcones: xanthohumol
  • Flavanones: naringenin, 8-prenylnaringenin
  • Flavones: apigenin, luteolin
  • Flavonols: kaempferols, quercetin, rutin
  • Isoflavones: coumestrol, genistein

Benzene derivatives

Many in this category seem to be estrogen receptor (α or β) antagonists.

  • Lignans
  • Phenols
    • Polyphenol: resveratrol
    • Anisoles: anethole, estragole and their derivatives
    • Catechols: curcumin, capsaicin (catechols tend to be irritants)
  • Resorcinols: zearalenone
  • Stilbenes: tamoxifin

Combination

Coumestrol is both an isoflavone and a coumarin.

Flavonolignans are a molecule that contains a joined flavonoid and lignan. Silymarin belongs to this category.

Other

Vitamin D is also a steroid.

Blog updates: breast topics and health related content.

Anon07 - May 17, 2020
There are results of breast enlargement in the program of anon07.

Effective herb programs - May 04, 2020
The herb programs Hops01 and proliferative01 cause breast and hip growth. These programs also reduce body hair and improve scalp hair. These versions of the herb program were suggested from early this year, in the journal programs of and hirsutism02. The herb program anon03 also had parts of these herb schedules from last year. The basic outline of this herb program was around much sooner. Basic programs Jellie and anon02 have recent evidence of efficacy of natural breast enlargement. Anon02's program is no longer recommended, and is replaced with better herb programs. anon05's program has images of growth early on in the program which plateaued, and she has expressed interest in trying a program at a later time. Anon05 actually made breast enlargement gains before the first picture from information on this website.

Hirsutism02 - March 29, 2020
Her hair conditions improved: body hair lowered, and scalp hair has grown back. There were noticeable but minor gains in breast and hip size.

Jellie - April 05, 2020
Before and after of Jellie's breast growth, from about 1 month on a herb program. Latest picture is of February 10, 2020. She also had described hip growth, that is not shown in pictures. [Results are from a C cup to an E cup.]

New breast enlargement programs: April 2020 - April 05, 2020
3 new herbal breast enlargement programs. Breast/hip enhancement results aren't in yet. Two programs are without BCP use. The composite program allows individual entries by different people with similar cases to show results from specific herb combinations for different times of the menstrual cycle.

Hops - February 09, 2020
Investigating replacements for hops Looking into valerian and passionfruit as partial replacements for hops. They have similar properties based on mood. It is underinvestigated if their effects on GABA and mood has to do with an influence on prolactin. There is not enough information on the prenylflavonoid content on passionfruit, and the flavonoid content in valerian. There is a similarity in valerian that it can cause skin sensitivity, like hops. Valerian and passionfruit should likely be avoided during proliferative phase, like hops. Beets and figs are other plants to investigate. There isn't enough information available on the phytohormone content of beets. Certain figs have hormonal properties for being used for galactagogues and preventing miscarriages. There are also anti-inflamatory properties of figs. Figs contain lignans, and flavonoids which need to be further investigated. The type of prenylflavonoid matters, in what the receptors it will target and the effect. Milkthistle is a partial substitute for hops, but it's effects are mainly on ERβ. Sunflower seed and wheat bread seemed to cause a minor improvement from allergic-like symptoms. Sunflower did improve hormone balance slightly.

Anethole & estragole - January 30, 2020
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.

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.

Super Bazongas: Note - October 05, 2019
Super Bazongas, Vol 2, is not up to date, and is currently available for archive purposes. It will be updated at a later time. See program blog for more recent information.
