Insure life:Will Consumption of Herb Anise (a.k.a. Aniseed) Really Enhance your Breast?

Breast enlargement supplements usually contain herbs (like Anise), with natural estrogenic properties from plant sources (phyto-estrogens) that work by regulating hormones and promote healthy tissue growth.

The herbs found in breast enhancement formulas do not usually contain estrogen or other hormones. However, they do contain hormone-like substances. One common type is called a phyto-estrogen, that can mimic the activity of human hormones such as estrogen or progesterone, or make proper levels of such hormones more available in the body by normalizing glandular and hormonal activity.

One of most commonly used herb in breast enhancement pills is Anise (a.k.a. Aniseed). Anise is an annual herb that can grow up till 18 inches high. The new leaves are rounded whereas the old ones are deeply serrated and feathery. It has whitish flowers in flat clusters. The leaves and seeds have a warm, sweet licorice-like taste flavor.

Anise helps digestion, improves appetite, ease the pain of cramps and nausea, cough, colds, and relieves flatulence, bad breath, and, especially in infants, colic (mothers who sip anise tea will relieve the colic in the breast feeding baby).

However, intake of Anise (a.k.a. Aniseed) alone may not be that effective, unless it is combined synergistically with other similar herbs that contain phytoestrogens. And not all phytoestrogens give the same effectiveness to enhance your breast.

So, where can one find the herb that gives the best phytoestrogens? Or does it exist in the first place?

Studies have shown that Pueraria Mirifica as one of the best phytoestrogen you can find. What makes Pueraria Mirifica the best Phytoestrogen? How is it different from Anise (a.k.a. Aniseed)?

Pueraria mirifica is an indigenous herb of Thailand, known in Thai as "Kwao Kreu" or "Kwao Kreu Kao" (White Kwao Kreu). It belongs to the Family Leguminosae,subfamily Papilionoideae or the soy, bean & pea subfamily, The plants are commonly found in abundant in the forests in the north, the west and the northeast of Thailand at the altitude of 300-800 meters above sea level, Active principles in this plant are found in the tuberous root, which looks like chain of round-shaped bulbs of various sizes connected to the next one via small root throughout the entire length of the root. The shape and size of the tuberous root are diverse depending on the environment in which it exists. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that phytoestrogen "Miroestrol" and "Deoxymiroestrol" can only be found in Pueraria Mirifica!

"Miroestrol and Deoxymiroestrol " is very different from other phytoestrogens found in other plants such as Anise (a.k.a. Aniseed). It posses highest estrogenic activity among the known phytoestrogens due to structural similarity to Estradial. Estradiol is the main human estrogen which can be found in all women who are at the stage of nursing baby (Lactating); as you may notice that all women who are in this stage, their breast will enlarge and gain firmness for feeding purpose. This is the main reason why Pueraria Mirifica is unique from other breast enhancement herbs such as Anise (a.k.a. Aniseed).

Women in the rural communities in Thailand where this herb grows have used the tuberous roots of Pueraria Mirifica effectively as "rejuvenating" folk medicine for well over a hundred years, before it becomes well known and has received much attention from Thai and foreign scientists and mainstream alike not so many years ago.
