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.

Jellie - January 13, 2020
The evening before, she took a tea of 3,000mg fennel, 1,500mg sunflower, and about 50mg each of spearmint and fenugreek. Measurements for bust and hips are both 37¼". Underbust to nipple is about 3¾" Ovulation is perhaps about to occur. Phytohormone break down likely influenced ovulation.

Anon05 - October 16, 2019
Herb program for Anon05. There are older pictures of positive results. Regular updates. Her maximum bust size was 35¼". It has stalled here and fluctuated in size. Her bust size is expected to go past this.

Spirostans - November 28, 2019
Diosgenin, apigenin, yamogenin, sarsaponin, sarsasapogenin, luteone and asparanin B (shatavarin IV) are steroidal spirostans. This is a different group than the one spironolactone belongs to.

Herbs for stress - October 16, 2019
Damiana and mulungu tea are good for stress. Only a pinch of damiana is needed. Mulungu has to be stepped in boiling water for 20minutes for it to be effective. Skullcap is made for stress, but I never tried it. Damiana is really effective, but it seems to lose its potency each time it is used.

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.

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.

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.
