This is about Pueraria for breast enhancement, and its hormonal effects on the body, including use for alleviating menstrual symptoms. Evidence of kudzu's properties is examined.

There are also suggestions of Pueraria use for effective breast enlargement.

Etymology

Pueraria is a genus of plant commonly referred to as Kudzu. Fabaceae (or Leguminosae) is the name of the family which Pueraria resides.

Here are some well known plants of Kudzu. Pueraria mirifica is a shortened term for the cultivar Pueraria candollei mirifica, which is also known as Kwao Kreu, Kwao Kreu Kao or Thai Kudzu. Japanese Arrowroot's classification is Pueraria montana lobata, which is often shortened to Pueraria lobata, where "lobata" is its variation name.

Evidence of Pueraria's properties

Pueraria mirifica has a reputation for herbal breast enlargement. This is because it has varying properties that work synergistically together.

There aren't many studies on its effects on hormone levels specifically, however, its effects on the menstrual cycle offers some clues. Pueraria often causes lighter, but longer periods. This suggests that Kudzu has estrogenic, luteinizing hormone (LH) or follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) properties that conflict with prolactin or progesterone properties of this plant.

One research paper suggests that Kudzu has serotonic properties, which is associated with an increase of prolactin, and that it has estrogenic properties. Another research paper determined that Pueraria mirifica did alter menstrual cycles, but didn't appear to affect hormone levels of progesterone, LH, FSH or estrogen. This study didn't include Pueraria mirifica's effects on prolactin. It hypothesized the possibility that its estrogenic, LH or FSH properties balance out levels of progesterone. This appears to be the most likely outcome. Another possibility is that Kudzu's phytohormones or its influence on prolactin weren't tested for in serum samples.

Puerarin is a phytochemical contained in Kudzu with the ability to affect hormones, and receptors of interest. It has acted on Estrogen Receptor Beta (ERβ): agonists often simultaneously downregulate the receptor they act upon. This phytohormone also has raised growth hormone (GH), and prolactin (Prl).

Hormonal properties and their effects vary among different species of Pueraria or kudzu.

Anecdotal evidence

Pueraria has caused minor breast growth, but additional body hair. Kudzu has also contributed to hot-flashes. These effects imply that the effect is positive and estrogenic on ERα in the breasts (and fallopian tubes), but androgenic on ERβ in the reproductive tract. Excessive use of pueraria has stopped being effective for breast growth. This is likely because of desensitization of estrogen recepors, and because clover's effects on the reproductive tract reduce estrogen balance in the body.

Use

Pueraria for breast enhancement

Most herbs do not have the combination of phytohormones that Kudzu has, which gives Pueraria mirifica (Thai Kudzu) a reputation for bust enhancement.

Pueraria can be used in minimal amounts during mid secretory phase, but it requires herbs with antagonistic properties for consistent effects. Avoid pueraria completely during proliferative phase and ovulation.

For the first day of menstruation, pueraria requires the proper antagonist companion herb(s) to have consistent positive effects on the breasts. This includes 1 fenugreek seed, and sunflower seed. Barley can replace sunflower seed. Kudzu, depending on variety, can contribute to heavy menses, which is not sustainable for hormone health.

Kudzu is best used during mid secretory phase. When used during the appropriate phase and herb combination, limit kudzu as close to under 25mg of solid form per day. Pueraria by itself can contribute to hot-flashes and hirsutism.

Pueraria01 is a specific herbal program based around Pueraria (kudzu) in use and in theory.

Pueraria 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

Kudzu's reputation to alleviate menstrual problems can be attributed to its hormonal effects as described in previous sections. Different species and cultivars of kudzu have different strengths of promoting or lowering menstruation, which can disrupt the menstrual cycle at other times.

Similar herbs

Pueraria by itself during menstruation has the same effect as the herb combination of spearmint and clover. Kudzu also has many of the same phytochemicals as clover, so it likely behaves as spearmint with clover together. Clover has a reputation for reducing fertility with some symptoms consistent with kudzu.

Fenugreek is a partial substitute and complement for pueraria, because it has properties that are more regularly positive on the reproductive tract. These herbs also require the right companion herb for improved consistency.

Hops and spearmint can be used together in minimal amounts and in different ratios to balance menstruation intensity.

Precautions

While Pueraria mirifica root has been effective for natural breast enhancement, most standardized studies have shown Kudzu's hormonal effectiveness based on cancerous breast cell samples. Pueraria is likely not carcinogenic, but it seems to not discriminate between nurturing healthy and tumorous cells. Pueraria is still very useful, when used in small portions and when not used in cases prone to cancer.

Kudzu is to be avoided for those with hot-flashes, alcopecia or hirsutism.

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.

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.
