Curejoy Expert Gina Hodge Explains:

Non surgical breast enhancements products, in the forms of creams and herbal supplements, are fraudulent in their claims and dupe gullible people. The premise of these products is the link between estrogen levels and breast size. Manufacturers of these products proclaim that “phytoestrogens” (estrogen found in plant-based products) found in soy, red clover, flaxseed, black cohosh, saw palmetto, and wild Mexican yam have the same effect as natural estrogen has on breast size. Creams have been promoted as breast enlargement miracles that use dilation of blood vessels in the skin using caffeine and constricting collagen to “uplift” sagging breasts.

But that is far from the truth and at best, a false and vague assumption. Phytoestrogens are technically phytoSERMs (selective estrogen receptor modulators) where SERMs induce an estrogenic effect in postmenopausal women and antiestrogenic effect on premenopausal women. So even if these products ended up having what they claim they still will not produce the desired result. Though some of these herbs have been prescribed to increase breast milk production in lactating mothers, a direct connection to breast size has never been clinically proved.

Unnaturally boosting estrogen levels and altering (increasing breast size) glandular development is fraught with complications, potentially capable of inducing cancerous change. Medical experts believe that the external estrogen infused into a woman’s body, greatly increases their risk of breast cancer.

The only way to increase breast size non-surgically is either through hormonal changes (like during pregnancy) or through gain weight. Fat gain or loss ratio is proportional across all parts of your body so an increase in breast fat (1/3 of breast mass) will have to come with overall fat increase.

Working on chest muscles during your workouts will tone your breasts tissues, making your breasts upright and “seem” larger without actually increasing size.
