Recently, posts on GBN have focused on the effectiveness of teas for natural breast enlargement and 5 Chinese tea recipes to grow breasts naturally. For this post, we’ll be diving deeper into 7 herbs used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to regulate the endocrine system, increase circulation in the breast area and nourish the chest – all beneficial to breast enlargement in TCM.
Jujube [Chinese Red Dates]
Chinese red dates are warm and sweet in terms of Chinese Food Therapy. They contain protein, amino acids, carotene, vitamins, iron, calcium, phosphorus and are generally found dried. The dried dates are often used in a variety of Chinese teas and soups to treat a number of health issues. Jujubes are beneficial for NBE because they regulate the endocrine system and promote the secretion of female hormones.
Huang Qi [Astragulus]
Astragulus has a long history of use in TCM. It has been consumed for centuries to treat a number of ailments but also as a means of disease prevention and to promote healthy living. Astragulus contains high nutritional value and is said to improve the immune system as well as cardiovascular health. In regards to breast enlargement, studies have shown that Astragulus can stimulate the release of growth hormones in rats and as a result, may increase growth hormones in humans. Astragulus is generally consumed as a tea with other herbs including wolfberries and jujubes.
Dong Quai [Chinese Angelica Root]
Angelica root is an herb commonly used in Western breast enlargement and can be found as an ingredient in many commercial herbal breast enlargement pills. In TCM, Angelica improves blood circulation and helps to strengthen female hormones. Angelica is also said to increase libido and regulate menstruation, and is often used to induce late periods.
Wang Bu Liu Xiang [Vaccaria Root]
Vaccaria is known to activate the blood and promote blood circulation. It is commonly used in TCM to treat a variety of gynecological issues including regulating menstruation. The use of Vaccaria to increase prolactin and milk production has been recorded as far back as the Han Dynasty and continues to be used today to increase milk production in new mothers. There is supposedly a study published in June 1995 from the National Taiwan University, Yang Ming Medical College showing evidence that Vaccaria promotes significant breast cell growth in as little as five days. Unfortunately, I was not able to find any additional information on this study.
Yi Mu Cao [Motherwort]
Motherwort is regularly used as an gynecological herb in TCM. Studies have shown that it provides significant increase in uterine contractions as well as shrinks the uterus postpartum. It is also used to regulate menstruation. Motherwort honey can be found in China and contains essential amino acids, vitamins, trace elements and other active enzymes and nutrients. Motherwort is also popular for it skin enhancing properties and is used both topically and orally for this reason.
Gou Qi Zi [Wolfberry]
Some believe that wolfberries, also known as Goji berries, are the most effective breast enhancer in TCM. Consuming wolfberries is said to increase blood circulation as well as regulate endocrine function, all of which is believed to accelerate the supply of nutrients to breast cells/tissue. In addition, wolfberries are rich in carotenoids, B vitamins, vitamin C and a variety of amino acids and minerals – all beneficial to breast cell development.
Dang Shen [Codonopsis]
Codonopsis or “poor man’s ginseng” is another favored herb in TCM. It has high nutritional value and is used to boost the immune system. A variety of essential amino acids, trace elements, vitamins and minerals can be found in Codonopsis. It is beneficial for NBE as it provides the body with increased flow of blood and qi, as well as plenty of nutrients to promote breast growth.
