Botanical Breast Enhancement: Guide



Breast development

The hormones of estrogens, progestogens, prolactin and androgens influence breast tissue through Estrogen Receptor Alpha (ERα), Progesterone Receptor B (PRB) and Prolactin Receptor (PrlR). ERα, Estrogen Receptor Beta (ERβ) and progesterone receptors (PR) in the reproductive tract are important for estrogen balance and fertility. As each receptor is positively stimulated by its respective hormone, it also becomes desensitized. There are more receptor types in the breast and body that cannot be ignored due to health reasons.

Positive estrogenic stimulation, or agonism, of ERα causes lengthening of milk ducts. Branching of milk ducts, which increases the amount of end buds, is caused by progestogenic agonism on PRB. The formation of milk lobules converted from the end of milk ducts and their continued growth is caused by prolactin’s effects on PrlR. Progesterone also has a role in differentiation, or conversion of end points into milk lobules, by influencing prolactin, during secretory phase.


Of ERα, ERβ and PRB, mild potentencies of their non-respective steroid hormone enhances each hormone receptor’s response to its respective hormone, known as receptor upregulation. Without compatible synergistic action, the response to a receptor’s own specific hormone dulls with quantity or potency, known as receptor downregulation. Upregulation and downregulation also applies to non-steroid hormone receptors like PrlR. Too much of a potent hormone can damage its own and other interacting receptors. An imbalance of too much of one type of hormone is a cancer and fertility risk. The breast and reproductive tract contain more types of cell receptors, but the mentioned above are the focus so far.

Estrogens are formed from androgens through a process called aromatase, and aromatase enzymes are located within tissue where ERα and ERβ are also present. ERβ is located in ovarian, egg, bone, brain and adipose tissue. Within the ovarian follicle or corpus luteum, androgen production by theca cells, and estrogen production by granulosa cells are together important for reproductive health.

Estrogens, progestogens, androgens, glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids are steroid hormones which are fat soluble. Steroid hormones react with their respective receptors within cells.

Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), prolactin (Prl), anti-müllerian hormone (AMH) and inhibin are amino acid based hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle. These hormones do not last as long in the body as steroid hormones, and these hormones interact with receptors at cells walls. Balance of these non-steroid hormones, and the health of their corresponding receptors is also important.

Menstrual cycle


The menstrual cycle will be divided into the following 4 phases to simplify timing: menses (menstruation), proliferative, secretory and premenstrual. Follicular phase has been divided up into menses and proliferative phases. Menstruation is when the uterus lining is shed. The proliferative phase is when the uterus rebuilds to prepare for potential pregnancy, and this lasts from the end of menstruation until ovulation. Ovulation is an intermediate time between proliferative and secretory phases. The luteal phase has been divided into secretory and premenstrual phases. The corpus luteum, which produces progesterone, is present during the secretory phase. Premenstrual phase begins after the corpus luteum disintegrates, and it lasts until menstruation starts.

During menstruation, FSH increases menstruation intensity, and prolactin decreases menstruation intensity. Estrogen is not a dominant hormone during menstruation. FSH develops the follicle, but it also causes follicles to be released.

During proliferative phase, one or few follicles continue to develop which raises inhibin and estrogen. Inhibin signals the pituitary to not release FSH, and for new follicles not to be released. Rising estrogen levels prepare the reproductive tract for egg implantation. Estrogen suppresses LH at first, but a buildup of estrogen eventually causes the body to release LH.

LH allows ovulation to occur, releasing the egg from the follicle, leaving behind the corpus luteum in the ovary. The sequential rise of LH, then FSH initially matures the corpus luteum within the ovary during ovulation. FSH then pushes the egg towards the uterus.

Progesterone is produced by the corpus luteum, which is a temporary organ whose function is to signal to the pituitary gland to momentarily prevent menstruation, for purposes of maintaining fertilization or pregnancy. Lower amounts of estrogens than progestogens are produced during the luteal phase and pregnancy. The pituitary gland releases prolactin, which signals the corpus luteum (and if during pregnancy, the placenta) to release more progesterone, creating a feedback loop. Progesterone increases prolactin, and prolactin lowers FSH and LH.

If the egg is not fertilized, the corpus luteum dies within the ovaries. Once progesterone levels drop during premenstrual phase, the pituitary gland begins to release FSH, allowing menstruation to begin. Outside of the secretory phase, early premenstrual phase or pregnancy, progesterone amounts in the body are existent (due to the adrenal glands), but negligible.

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.
