Question: I recently stopped using oral contraceptives and am disappointed that my breast size has decreased considerably. I recently saw something about a breast enlargement pill called Tobustan online, what is it?


Answer: Tobustan is a breast enlarging supplement that contains a blend of herbal extracts that have been used for ages to balance female reproductive functions. The ingredients include fenugreek, which is rich in phytoestrogens that mimic the breast building estrogen naturally occurring in the female body. Other ingredients include saw palmetto, fennel seed, L-Tyrosine, Mexican wild yam, kelp, damiana leaf, dong quai, mother’s wort, and blessed thistle. Many of these ingredients are included in other breast supplements on the market, but conspicuously absent is pueraria mirifica, the only herbal extract that has demonstrated promise in clinical trials.

Tobustan claims that it is doctor recommended, but does not offer any evidence to support this assertion. Similarly, the Tobustan website says it has been rated as the number one breast enhancement program on the market, but does not specify their source for this claim. It is stated that breast enhancement supplements have been discussed on CNN Headline News, The Montel Williams Show, Dateline NBC, and 20/20, but they do not mention if this was positive coverage or specifically about Tobustan.

Tobustan offers a vaguely worded 1-year money back guarantee, and a plethora of testimonials. The only dated testimonials are from 2007. There are no clinical trials presented to 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.
