Saw palmetto is one among the herbal extracts widely used and added to breast enlargement pills, creams, and gels today. But what is its role in helping increase breast size over time? Of course, it’s unlikely to bring the instant results of breast implants, just like other self-applied, non-surgical techniques. But ingredients like saw palmetto have a number of purported benefits, some of which are traditionally tried and vouched for.
Colorful Traditional Roots and Uses
Known as the fruit Serenoa repens, saw palmetto has colorful traditional roots, its extract abundant with specific fatty acids and phytosterols. It is used in ancient times as a tonic, for stimulating appetite, for relief of pain during menstruation, for increasing lactation in mothers, and to reduce prostate size. It is consumed as a food and also used as an expectorant and antiseptic.
Today, saw palmetto is found in natural berry form, tea, and tablets, including for breast enhancement formulas. Its action revolves around inhibiting DHT, stimulating prolactin production (also promoting lactation), and helping increase breast size over time. There is no fixed recommended dose, but 160 milligrams, at 85 to 95 percent extract, is taken twice daily.
Are There Side Effects You Should Expect?
There are reported side effects of using saw palmetto, but nothing severe or life-threatening has been documented. There could be swelling of the nipples and fullness in the chest, but there is no one universally manifested side effect. This is why it is best to talk to your doctor before saw palmetto therapy, and research very well on a specific saw palmetto product for breast enlargement or otherwise.
Other Ingredients in Breast Formulas
Other plant- or fruit-based extracts or ingredients added to many breast enhancing products are fenugreek, fennel seed, witch hazel extract, Pueraria mirifica (native to countries like Thailand and Myanmar) and many more. Nutrients like vitamin B3 are added to the mix as well for synergistic action. Many brands are marketed as a “proprietary formula,” boasting of their own set of benefits for bigger, fuller breasts and optimal bust health.
What you should do is look closely at the facts and clinical data of every supplement, and strive for high quality by looking at the manufacturer’s reputation and commitment to top quality standards. Again, consult your doctor before pill regimen, especially if you have an underlying medical condition.
