It is important to note that food, by itself, cannot induce breast enlargement and growth. Some of the amino acids can help in enlarging the breasts without surgery.

What are amino acids enhanced breast enlargement?

The most important amino acids that are present in growth hormone are arginine, lysine, and glutamine. They have to be added into your daily supplements to speed up the breast growth rate, up to 300%.

Those amino acids, when combined with chest exercise to build chest muscle, will certainly help create perkiness and firmness in your breasts, without any surgery. There are other benefits you can get from taking these amino acids as they slow the aging process and help you burn fat faster by increasing your body’s metabolism.

Other foods that play a role are Green leaves and veggies like watery leaf, which are rich in Vitamin E, folic acid and Lucien. Vitamin E is an essential nutrient to help breast enlargement naturally. We can find these in:

a- Palmetto berry oil, used to reverse atrophy of the mammary glands.

b- Fennel seeds which offer extra mild estrogenic effects.

c- Chick peas, black eyed peas, kidney beans, Lima lentils, all have a high level of estrogen.

Do the products for natural breast enhancement really work?

It is possible to acquire enlarged breasts without surgery, but it must be done on a regular basis.

- Some herbal oils and supplements are powerful enough. Use them from 4 to 12 weeks and you will see a noticeable improvement in both firmness and cup size.

e) - Breast enlargement pills and cosmetic products:

- Many cosmetic products accelerate estrogen receptors in the breast tissue and can permanently increase the breast size.

- Some pills contain herbal additives with chemical substances called phytoestrogens, which play the same role as female sex hormones, the aim of the phytoestrogen is to give your body the same as if you are pregnant or just entering puberty. As a result, your body will start regenerating more breast volume, but it is not scientifically proved. Some studies show that most of us have not grown to our fullest potential during our puberty, due to many possible factors that cause hormonal nutrition deficiencies, high level of stress or lack of exercise.

However, taking the herbal supplements alone you cannot be able to grow 2 or 3 cup sizes.

Some herbal breast enlargement methods:

1- Fresh onion juice mixed with honey and turmeric power is said to do the trick. The mixture is used in massaging the breasts, then wear a bra throughout the day and over night before bathing.

2- Fenugreek, wild yam and yarrow, soy are said to boost a woman's estrogen level, naturally.

Constant sucking or caressing of the breasts, in African societies they believed that this may tend to help breasts grow larger, but it is not proven, scientifically.

In summary, one has to be careful when using natural products, as there is no guarantee that they will work and some of them may even be dangerous to your health, if taken without the care of a Doctor. And, what works for one woman may not work for another. Keep in mind that they are not supported by medical science.
