Panax ginseng

Panax spp

This is about the effects of Panax ginseng for health including hormone balance.

Etymology

Panax ginseng goes by the name of Korean ginseng. Chinese ginseng is a name for Panax ginseng and Panax notoginseng.

Panax belongs to the Araliaceae family.

Properties

Panax spp

Panax ginseng upregulates AR (androgen receptor), ERα (estrogen receptor alpha) and ERβ (estrogen receptor beta). It has been documented to increase bodily estrogen and ovarian weight, but this appears to be circumstantial.

Other species of Panax are known for female health use, but their specific properties on receptors are less documented.

Anecdotal evidence

When taken when there are low signs of bodily estrogens, Panax ginseng increases negative responses such as body hair and hot-flashes. Panax ginseng's ability to increase estrogen response depends on when during the cycle it is used. Its ability to increase ovarian function, and likely ovarian weight, is associated with during the menstrual cycle when estrogen levels are normally high.

Use

Panax for breast enhancement

Ginseng's effects are circumstantial. If ginseng is useful for breast enhancement, the only time it could possibly be used is during mid secretory phase, when both estrogen and progesterone levels are high. In cases of hormone imbalance or low body weight, there is a smaller window of time during the menstrual cycle when ginseng and similar herbs can potentially be used for preferable results.

Wait until the next day before determining its full effects.

Because ginseng upregulates AR, it behaves differently than other herbs that also upregulate ERα or ERβ.

Panax or herbs with similar properties, can potentially be seen in the program journals of: anon03, anon05, Canadian Belle, hirsutism01 and hirsutism02. These programs have descriptions of results from combination herb use.

Herb timing and combinations' success for breast enhancement relies on menstrual phases. Most herbs are taken as teas.

Other than for breast enhancement

Despite ginseng's reputation as an adaptogen, ginseng appears to have the opposite effect for women especially during menses and premenstrual phases. It conditionally increases androgenic effects, or when it increases estrogenic effects, it often causes headaches.

Similar herbs

Sunflower seed is a better and proven substitute than ginseng. Sunflower works more consistently than lavender for improving hormone balance, but both require estrogenic and progestogenic conditions of the body. Minimal amounts of fenugreek or likely asparagus assist in providing temporary estrogenic and progestogenic balance.

For an adaptogen: use maca instead.

Schizandra chinensis and Salvia miltiorrhiza have similar properties to Panax ginseng.

The adaptogen Schizandra chinensis upregulates ERα and ERβ. A study found it to increase estrogen production, but this is circumstantial.

Salvia miltiorrhiza is known as Danshen, red sage and Chinese sage. Danshen increases sensitization of ERα and ERβ. According to studies, Chinese sage increases the weight of ovaries and levels of estrogen, but this may be circumstantial depending on when during the menstrual cycle it is taken.

The researchers who studied Chinese sage concluded that, common sage (Salvia officinalis) diminishes ovarian cells. In small amounts, common sage had an insignificant effect on reducing ovarian function. Their study found Salvia officinalis to improve symptoms of hot-flashes. Common sage is not expected to promote breast growth. Salvia officinalis and other species of sage are unsuitable for use in a herbal bust enhancement program.

Effects on the ovaries by Panax ginseng, schizandra, sages and other estrogen receptor upregulating herbs may be circumstantial, depending on whether they are taken during mid proliferative phase, the amount that is taken, hormone levels, and whether they are taken in the presence of other herbs. Whether these herbs behave as their reputation suggests as androgenic or estrogenic is circumstantial.

Precautions

Despite being an adaptogen, avoid ginseng for menstruation, early proliferative phase and late premenstrual phase as this may cause or increase unfavorable symptoms. Limit use of Panax ginseng to less than 200mg of solid herb per day. In cases of trying to correct hormone imbalances, use minimal amounts of Korean ginseng. For similar herbs, do not take more than 125mg of solid herb per day.

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 and #2 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.

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.
