Question: I am desperately seeking an alternative way to increase my bust size without surgery. I have seen products ranging from exercise equipment, to creams, to bra inserts, all claiming to boost the size and shape of my bust as well as boosting self-confidence. I have looked into a product called Procurves, an herbal supplement that claims 100% satisfaction. How do pill supplements work and are they really as effective as they say?


Answer: Herbal supplements intended to increase bust size claim to work by providing the body with phytoestrogens derived from plants. During puberty and pregnancy, natural hormone levels rise in the body, making breast tissue grow. Often times, while breasts are developing, these estrogen levels can be interrupted or shortchanged due to dietary and exercise habits. If the body does not produce enough estrogen during puberty, breast growth can be stunted.

What breast enhancement supplements, like Procurves, claim is that their products, containing plant estrogens, will stimulate breast tissue growth much like during puberty or pregnancy. Although Procurves uses doctor testimonials on their website, there are no clinical results or concrete statistics that support their claims.

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.
