Should I Take Fenugreek or Pueraria Mirifica for Natural Breast Enhancement?
If you’re considering going the phyto-estrogenic route of natural breast enhancement, you’ve no doubt heard of the 2 major players: Fenugreek and Pueraria Mirifica.
And if you’re like most people, you’re probably trying to wrap your hear around how they differ from each other and most importantly – which one is going to be best for your breast growth.
In the interest of *hopefully* making that choice a little easier for you, we’re going to delve into the nitty gritty of both Fenugreek and Pueraria Mirifica and weigh the pros and cons of each.
Let’s get started, yes?
An Overview of Fenugreek and Pueraria Mirifica
Fenugreek and Pueraria Mirifica are two plants that are well recognized for their very high phytoestrogenic content. As such, they’re distinguished even amongst the other breast enhancement herbs, usually regarded as the “top dogs” in natural breast enhancement.
So who are these boobie boosters?
Well, Fenugreek has a long and noble history of being for its phytoestrogenic power. It contains a compound called diosgenin which is popularly used to make synthetic estrogen, In fact, a study in India proves that Fenugreek has some effect on modifying the current behavior of estrogen-sensitive components in a woman’s body.
Pueraria Mirifica, on the other hand, is a relative new-comer to the scene. It’s an indigenous herb from Thailand that’s strongly recommended to women who want to improve their hair and complexion, have an all-natural estrogen solution for weight loss and of course, to increase breast size.
Pueraria Mirifica’s breast enhancement benefits stem from its high estrogen content – its most notable feature is that Pueraria Mirifica contains Miroestrol and Deoxymiroestrol, which has a similar chemical structure to estradiol, the strongest type of estrogen hormone. As such, PM packs the strongest phytoestrogenic punch you can hope for at the moment.
Both Fenugreek and Pueraria Mirifica contain potent amount of estrogen that can create a sort of “second puberty” effect on the body, meaning you experience breast growth, wider hips and the other curvy-fying effects of puberty again.
The Pros and Cons of Fenugreek and Pueraria Mirifica
The biggest thing going for Pueraria Mirifica is that the phytoestrogens present in the plant is potent enough to take alone, and still see a tangible physical effect. The biggest effect is breast enlargement, and perkier and firmer breasts can be had as early as just taking the PM supplement for at least 2 to 3 months.
Another benefit of Pueraria Mirifica is that its benefits extend past breast enhancement. Women have reported a gradual rounding out and filling up in their hip area, softer skin, healthier hair, and even improved mood.
However, Pueraria Mirifica is not as easy to get your hands on as Fenugreek and as such, tends to be a bit pricier. Not to mention that it can be tricky to navigate matters like how to take Pueraria Mirifica or which Pueraria Mirifica to choose (not all PM has equal effects on breast enhancement).
Note that in Japan almost three fourths of products claiming to be Pueraria Mirifica are mislabeled, so make sure you always know where your PM comes from and what kind it is. Check out our list of the best Pueraria Mirifica products.
PM is also more potent than Fenugreek, which sounds like a great thing, but can have side effects like messing with your monthly menstrual cycle, causing you to miss periods or have mid-cycle spotting. Find out more side effects of Pueraria Mirifica.
Fenugreek’s high phytoestrogenic content also makes it very effective for breast growth, but it is not as potent as PM and results will typically come more slowly. Fenugreek also comes with beneficial side benefits – it’s known to have positive effects on the digestive system, cardiovascular health and even various kidney ailments.
Also on the plus side, fenugreek is generally cheaper than Pueraria Mirifica. The only thing is that since Fenugreek is not as potent, it’s usually taken in tandem with other herbs like saw palmetto and fennel. The medley of herbs you’d be taking with Fenugreek usually adds up to the same amount as just taking a Pueraria Mirifica supplement.
The last real “con” for Fenugreek is that if you’re using it topically or you take too much of it, you can start smelling very strongly like maple syrup/curry.
This is probably the biggest drawback of Fenugreek. It’s affordable, easy to get, and effective, but smelling like a blend of maple syrup and curry is not something most women are into.
Fenugreek vs Pueraria Mirifica: Which is Better for Natural Breast Enhancement?
Both women and men have had success with both Fenugreek and with Pueraria Mirifica. They’re both rich in phytoestrogen content and both end up costing roughly the same once you factor in the other herbs that should be taken alongside Fenugreek.
Our 2 cents would be to go with the option you feel most comfortable with. If you think you can handle the potency of Pueraria Miririca, give it a try. If PM is too strong for your body and/or you experience side effects you don’t care for (i.e. increased appetite, bloating, dizziness, etc.), then detox for a week or two and then try Fenugreek.
Whichever you decide to try – make sure you do your research and go with a brand that uses the most potent, effective form of each ingredient.
If you’ll be taking Pueraria Mirifica, we recommend PURAFEM since they use ONLY pure, premium farmed Pueraria Mirifica with no other additives.
If you’ll be going with Fenugreek, we recommend Natureday hands down over all other herbal products. They have a very effective liquid blend (tinctures are more potent than dried herbs) that’s a simple and powerful combination of Fenugreek, Fennel, Saw Palmetto, Blessed Thistle and Dong Quai – a great mix of phytoestrognic herbs for breast enhancement, anti-androgenic herbs for testosterone suppression, and hormone balancing herbs.
In the end, it’s hard to say that Fenugreek or Pueraria Mirifica is “the best” because finding the best breast enhancement pill really depends on what’s best for you.
Read over the information on both options, know that you can always experiment with one and then come back to another, and go with the one that feels most comfortable for you.
And as always – happy growing!
