In the course of researching natural breast enhancement products, fenugreek extract is an ingredient that seemed to pop up a lot, so I thought it merited some extra attention.
Fenugreek is a small, hard seed that comes out of a bean-like pod. The plant is native to India, the Mediterranean and North Africa.
Fenugreek has many varied uses. It is an important ingredient in Indian cooking and is used in curry powders and to make mango chutneys. It is even used as a coffee substitute.
Fenugreek as a component for natural breast enhancement products
More importantly to me (although I do love Indian food!) is the medicinal properties of fenugreek. Fenugreek has been used medicinally for thousands of years (yes…thousands – it’s hard to believe, isn’t it?) to treat a wide variety of ailments. And now it is used in a lot of natural breast enhancement products.
I was actually pretty shocked to discover how many benefits fenugreek has. Here’s the list:
- Digestive aid.
- Helps increase milk production in breastfeeding women.
- Used to treat hormonal imbalance.
- Helps with menopause symptoms.
- Stimulates contractions in pregnant women to induce labor.
- Lowers blood pressure.
- Used along with insulin to lower blood sugar levels.
- Natural expectorant for treating coughs and colds.
- Slows carbohydrate absorption which helps with weight loss.
- Lowers serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
I even read there has been a study showing it may reduce the risk of breast and colon cancer!
So how does it help to naturally increase breast size? Well, fenugreek mimics estrogen and stimulates prolactin, which causes breast tissue to form.
Of course, finding out about risk is also important, so I spent some time looking into fenugreek side effects.
Fenugreek is safe and has no known dangerous side effects (thousands of years of use has proved that!) although in very high doses it can cause stomach upset and diarrhea.
The fiber in fenugreek is very thick and sticky, which can interfere with absorbing other medication. For this reason, you need to make sure you take it two hours before or two hours after any other medication, including vitamins.
On the plus side, if you take it with a meal, it is thought to block the absorption of carbohydrates and help with weight loss.
However, Fenugreek is not recommended for use during pregnancy. Although it is sometimes used to induce labor, this is not something you should try yourself at home.
Fenugreek is found in a few of the natural breast enhancement products in the Top 5 list. It is one of the main ingredients in Bust Fuel and in Zoft Gum. It is also in Perfect Woman Enlargement Formula.
