Clover has prolactin raising properties, and also is referred to as phytoestrogenic.
Clover is a plant genus that goes by the scientific name of Trifolium. It belongs to the Fabaceae family, also known as the Leguminosae (legume) or pea family.
"Clover disease" is a common ailment of birds and livestock who consume excessive amounts of clover, causing reproductive problems, including reduced gonad size, and reduced fertility. Clover disease can even eventually cause sterility, and this is a concern for humans too.
Clover's negative effects are possibly due to ERβ desensitization. Hormones must be balanced.
Red Clover; Trifolium pratense
Red Clover (Trifolium pratense) is one of the most popular varieties of Clover used for hormonal issues. It is known as a rich source of phytohormones.
Trifolium for breast enhancement
Taking clover during proliferative phase or ovulation will cause shrinkage. Clover requires the right companion herbs during menstruation or secretory phase. Because the effects of hops are less pronounced on ERβ and PRA which are primarily expressed in the reproductive tract, it is a good replacement for clover.
From the above ground parts of the clover plant, the leaf has a higher density of phytohormones, and the flower has the least. If clover is used, the lowest potency is desired.
For (more) on the potential role of Trifolium and herbs with similar properties in a herb schedule for bust enhancement, see: super-bazongas.pdf or herb programs. Examples of herb use with descriptions of their results can be seen at: anon03 and anon04/hirsutism. super-bazongas.pdf is about herb use, and it has a botanical schedule for breast enhancement. Herb timing and combinations' success for breast enhancement relies on menstrual phases.
If you have hirsutism, PCOS, hot-flashes, other signs of hormone imbalances, see estrogen-imbalance and treating hirsutism program before trying herbs. 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.
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. 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.
Pictures of breast enhancement can be seen at the past program blogs of Bubblemelon and anon02.
