Increasing Breast Size Naturally at Home with Fenugreek
When a young girl reaches puberty and starts to grow breasts, the female sex hormone estrogen is the main hormone responsible for breast growth but by the time the young lady reaches the age of 18 or 19, the action of estrogen relating to breast growth stops. If you ended up with small breasts, there is nothing you can do to make the estrogen produced by your body to continue increasing your breasts after this period.
One of the ways to increase your breasts naturally at home is with the use of certain herbs and plants that contain a property known as phytoestrogen which is similar to the estrogen produced by the body. By adding these phytoestrogens to your body, you can help trigger breast growth. Fenugreek is one of the herbs that contains this phyto(plant) estrogen – diosgenin – that was mentioned above. This compound mimics the action of estrogen in the body and can help to increase your breast size either alone or in combination with other herbs that contain phytoestrogens.
This ability of fenugreek to increase breast size was first noticed among Arab women who not only consume the roasted fenugreek seeds to increase milk production but to also increase breast size.
In addition to using the seeds, it has been observed that diosgenin is contained in greater amounts in the fenugreek sprouts when compared to the amounts in unsprouted seeds. So if you are trying to make your breasts grow bigger naturally, you may consider using the sprouts although using the seeds is still beneficial. You can also use fenugreek oil during a breast massage which allows for better and faster absorption by the breasts.
