Protein is a nutrient that is vital to the production and repair of cells and tissue. This includes breast tissue. Protein also plays a role in the production of hormones like human growth hormone (HGH) which is important for breast growth as well.

It is recommended that women get about 46 grams of protein a day to maintain health while men should get about 56 grams. But when on a Natural Breast Enlargement routine, you need to up your protein intake. Just like bodybuilders increase their protein intake to build muscle tissue, NBEers need to increase their protein intake to build breast tissue.
Natural Breast Enlargement companies like Bountiful Breast and Natureday highly recommend that you increase your protein intake while on their products to help increase your success rate in growing breasts naturally.
But not all protein is equal. There are two types of protein, complete and incomplete. You need to up your intake of complete proteins to grow tissue. Complete proteins contain all the essential amino acids while incomplete proteins do not contain all the essential aminos acids or at least not in the right proportions. All animal proteins are considered complete while most plants proteins are considered incomplete. You can combine incomplete proteins to make a complete protein though.
People generally increase their protein intake by eating more meat, eggs, fish, and nuts. Below are some additional ways to easily up your daily protein intake.
1 shake = 10-30g of protein (depending on brand)
Protein shakes are the easiest way to get a boost in your protein intake. Whey is popular among NBE’ers because it has amino acids along with vitamins and minerals. In our opinion, EAS is the best tasting. The chocolate flavor with cold, cold milk tastes really yummy but they recently changed their recipe a little so it doesn’t taste as amazing but still better than most that is out there. The #1 best seller on Amazon is Optimum Nutrition 100% Gold Standard. Never tried it but it has a 4.5 star rating with over 3100 reviews!
1 cup = 8-20g of protein (depending on brand)
Greek yogurt has become very popular lately because of its high protein and low carb content. Our favorite is Greek Gods. It contains 9g of protein per cup. It’s on the lower end but add some walnuts, high protein granola, and chia seeds and you got a satisfying, high protein breakfast or lunch.
2 Tbsp = 4g of protein
Contains all 8 essential amino acids. It is also a great source of omega-3 fats and fiber. Also contains calcium, manganese, phosphorus. You can sprinkle some in your protein shake, smoothie, yogurt, salad, and oatmeal to name a few. Many companies offer them prepackaged. We prefer to get them in the bulk bins from places like Sprouts.
3 tbsp = 10g of protein
Contains all 20 amino acids and all essential amino acids. It also contains high percentages of Thiamin, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Iron, and Manganese. Like Chia seeds, you can sprinkle them in your shakes/smoothies, yogurt, salad, wherever. Our favorite brand is Manitoba Harvest.
¼ cup (uncooked) – 7g of protein
Way better than regular mushy oatmeal. The texture is better, the taste is better and the nutritional content is way better! It’s an incomplete protein but the way we eat it, it easily becomes a complete protein source. Make a pot over the weekend and heat up throughout the week for an easy breakfast. Add milk, walnuts, strawberries (or dried cranberries), chia seeds and hemp hearts. Super easy, yummy, filling and healthy.
