Why Protein is a MUST HAVE for Natural Breast EnhancementWhen you think natural breast enhancement, you most likely think of breast enhancement pills or creams. But one of the most important keys to growing bigger breasts actually starts in the kitchen…
Why Protein is Essential for Natural Breast Enhancement
The fastest, most straightforward way to grow breasts is to produce more tissue around the mammary glands. And one of the easiest, most effective ways to do this is to make sure you are getting enough protein in your diet.
Protein is necessary in producing cells and repairing tissue, and if you’re looking to get bigger breasts naturally, you’ll have to aim for at least the minimum requirement of protein per day.
Protein is crucial for any breast enhancement regimen because they are basic building blocks of hormones, which are necessary to promote breast growth. Protein consumption also helps synthesize Human Growth Hormone in your body.
The amino acids in protein-rich foods stimulate the production of HGH. Also known as somatotropin, HGH is produced in the pituitary gland, and as the name implies, it’s main function is to stimulate the growth of cells, tissues, and other internal components of the body.
HGH is plentiful in men and women who are hitting puberty up to their mid twenties, however, the level significantly decreases as a person ages. It slows down throughout your 20s and by the time an individual reaches 30, the slow decline begins.
Luckily, there are ways older people can stimulate the release of growth hormone in their bodies, such as…
- Sleep (at least 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep without the help of sleeping aids)
- A diet sufficient in proteins that are rich in amino acids will
Get enough of the above 3 on a daily basis to help your body trigger the release of growth hormones!
What Kind of Protein Should You Be Getting and How Much?
Remember it’s not just the quantity of protein you ingest, it’s the quality too. Almost all whole foods contain some amount of protein, but to stimulate breast growth, you also have to focus on the amino acid content of the proteins you are consuming.
There are two types of amino acids, essential and non-essential. Essential amino acids are what we must get from protein-rich food sources, because these are amino acids that the body cannot manufacture by itself. Non-essential amino acids, on the other hand, can be produced by our bodies on a case to case basis.
Back to proteins, there are two main classifications for protein: complete and incomplete proteins. Complete proteins are simply proteins that contain all nine of the essential amino acids and it is crucial you get enough of these in your diet.
The best sources for complete proteins are still animal meats and animal by products, but don’t worry if you’re vegan or vegetarian. There are completely vegan sources of complete proteins as well – you’ll find them in the list below. In fact, they’re the majority. 🙂
Incomplete proteins are the second type of protein that lacks one or more essential amino acids. They are also referred to as partial proteins. They are not necessarily an inferior source of protein when compared with complete proteins, it’s just that you would need to combine them with other incomplete proteins to get the needed amino acids. Samples of complementary proteins are grains with legumes, dairy with seeds, and legumes with seeds.
We think it’s easier to shoot for plenty of complete proteins first and foremost 🙂
Here’s what to eat to get the most protein in your diet…
1. Meat and Poultry
Animal meats such as red meat, white meat and even game meat are an obvious place to look for a complete protein source. If you’re watching your weight but you still want to maximize the protein in your meal, be particular about which cuts you choose, for red meat, the round steak eye, tenderloin and sirloin are relatively lower in fat.
If you want leaner meat, game meats such as venison, buffalo or bison are great protein sources too. White meat from chicken and turkey also contain complete amino acids minus the fats that can clog your arteries.
Quinoa is a vegetarian’s best friend, and for good reason. Its one of the most versatile foods and it is crazy rich in nutrients as well. It contains a whopping 8 grams of protein per cup serving, and is also chock-full of iron, manganese magnesium, and fiber that keeps you full for longer.
You can use it a number of ways too, adding it to smoothies for extra bulk or using it as a replacement for rice. Just one extra cup of quinoa is a super easy way to add protein to any dish.
3. Bee Pollen
The little granules created by bees from flowering plants is a super densely nutritious food that contains 5 to 7 times more protein than beef.
It’s also super easy to consume – just sprinkle it on salads, add it to smoothies, or mix it into cereal – and it comes with the additional benefit of helping to protect you from allergies.
Our favorite is Stakich’s 100% pure, natural, unprocessed bee pollen.
4. Greek Yogurt
Greek Yogurt has been making the rounds as a go to snack for health buffs, and it’s for good reason. It’s rich, nutritious and quite low in sugar. It’s also filled with good fats, and is processed without the addition of chemicals, and other hormones.
When grocery shopping, don’t reach for those sugary flavored yogurts, they don’t taste healthy for a reason. Reach for the Greek Yogurt and get as much as 12 – 20 grams of protein, which is equal to the same protein you get in about 2 ounces of lean meat, which is great news for vegetarians. Another benefit of the packed protein content of Greek Yogurt? It makes you feel full faster and for longer too.
5. Goji Berries
Goji berries make the perfect low-fat, high-nutrition snack and they are not only a source of complete protein with 18 amino acids, but they’re also one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C.
They’re also delicious to carry around with you and eat by the handful when you’re cramped for time and haven’t got much protein in your diet throughout your day and of course, you can add them to smoothies, salads, and cereals for a quick protein boost.
6. Pastured Eggs
In terms of the amino acids that make a food a complete protein, it’s hard to find a better source than eggs. Not to gross you out or anything, but remember that each egg is a baby chicken in the making, which makes it rich in protein (since the chick is building muscle and tissue), anti-oxidants, vitamins and all kinds of good fat.
Stick to pastured hens since they eat natural food and live in good conditions, unlike chickens manufactured at large scale factory plants.
Okay, before we start – this hemp has very, very little to do with marijuana and no, you won’t get high from ingesting hemp seeds or oil 🙂
Hemp is our favorite source of vegetarian protein. It is a complete source of protein as well as a rich and balanced source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, including a rare form of GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid) which is integral to hormone balance.
It also has a nice, nutty taste that goes really well in cereals (yay for morning protein!) and smoothies. Our favorite way to consume hemp is in powdered form – it makes the perfect, all-natural protein powder since the only ingredient is high-protein hemp.
Okay, now that you got the list – make sure you choose the best forms of protein for you and your diet and give your breasts the nutrition they need to grow!
As always – happy growing!
