Suma: Brazilian Ginseng
Suma (Hebanthe eriantha) is known as Brazilian Ginseng for its reputation as an adaptogen. In theory, it can be used for herbal breast enlargement, as it has properties similar to other essential herbs.
Pfaffia paniculata is a synonym of Hebanthe eriantha. Gomphrena paniculata is a synonym of Hebanthe eriantha too, but Gomphrena is the name of a completely different genus of plant than Hebanthe.
Hebanthe eriantha is referred to as "para todo", which means in Spanish, for everything.
Suma has been noted to raise estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. Its effects of raising progesterone are likely during secretory phase. The effect of increased estrogen and progesterone are useful for herbal breast enhancement. Estrogens are formed from androgens. However, for breast growth, there must be the right balance of estrogens, progesterones and androgens.
Suma is known for increasing fertility, and this is likely because of its estrogen, progestogen and androgen raising properties.
Hebanthe for breast enhancement
The part of Suma used is its root. Suma is a possible partial replacement, full replacement or companion herb for fenugreek or shatavari.
The herb program shatavari01 describes theoretical use of suma and asparagus in a potentially effacious herb program that's based on hops01.
Hebanthe or herbs with similar properties, are in the programs of: menses, proliferative, luteal and BCP01. Herb timing and combinations' success for breast enhancement relies on menstrual phases. Descriptions and pictures of results from herb combination use can be seen in programs.
See precautions for more details of care to be taken with herb use. Proper nutrition is a consideration for health. Also, check for the latest blog updates about herb and hormone safety.
It is very important that menses be light and not prolonged.
If you have hirsutism, PCOS, hot-flashes, other signs of hormone imbalances, see estrogen-imbalance, and hirsutism program journals #1, #2 and #3 before trying herbs.
Herb concentrates can be tens of times more potent by weight than herbs in solid form. This can easily lead to hormone imbalances. For this reason, concentrate extracts are not recommended for extended or excessive internal use, especially during fertility years. Concentrates shouldn't be used to overcome plateaus. Another issue with herbal extracts, is that they may not have the full range of properties of the herb. Essential oils are not recommended for breast enhancement. If opting to use herb extracts, use no more than 1 drop at a time diluted in a food-grade carrier oil (like unrefined olive oil), or water.
For the latest herb programs and how to get started, see: guide. Pictures of breast enhancement can be seen in the program journals of Bubblemelon, Jellie and anon02.
