Question: I was at a family BBQ recently and one of my cousins kept talking about a supplement called Mirifem. She said it increased her bust size considerably, but I am not sure it will work for me since I am over 45. Does it work for all ages?

Answer: Mirifem is a natural herbal breast enhancement supplement containing Pueraria Mirifica as its primary active ingredient. Pueraria Mirifica is an herb native to Thailand where it has been used for years as a natural regulator of female reproductive functions. It contains high levels of phytoestrogens, which are plant estrogens very similar in structure to the naturally occurring estrogens in the female body. It is believed that adding these phytoestrogens to your diet helps to stimulate breast growth and firmness.


Mirifem claims to work for all ages of post-puberty women, although it is not recommended for pregnant or breast-feeding women, or women who are taking oral contraceptives. The studies that support Mirifem’s claims seem to be impressively positive. However, they are a bit misleading as they state the results are from taking Mirifem, but a disclaimer underneath the results notes that the study involved Pueraria Mirifica only. Also, they do not mention what occurred within the control group of their main study, which might undermine their incredible results. Mirifem states firmly that only the safest natural ingredients and strict quality control measures are used. However, they do not list its full ingredients, or the quantities of each. It contains Pueraria Mirifica, Carthamus tinctorius (safflower) flower, Bora orellana flower, and “other herbs.”

There is a wealth of very positive testimonials on the website, arranged conveniently by subject, ranging from longevity of results to customer service to post hysterectomy effects.

With all of the different herbal based products available on the market, there are a lot that are quite good–but you must remember to follow all the guidelines that come with the product in order to achieve maximum results. If you do shop for a breast enlargement product in a health store, pharmacy or on the Internet, you’ll often find hundreds of different brands containing a confusing array of ingredients. You may be tempted to experiment with different products until you find one that works. But this approach may be expensive. More importantly, not all products contain the quality and quantity of necessary ingredients to positively effects the size of one’s breast. That’s why you’ll need to do a little bit of research to find the best, most potent brand for your needs.
