Turmeric Encourages Natural Breast Growth!
Posted On March 27, 2018
Turmeric spice adds a ginger/orange sort of flavor to foods, but inside those flavors is a flood of medicinal properties that India has cherished for thousands of years.
Turmeric is a well known spice, not only a medicinal herb (botanical name: Curcuma longa), but long known as a sacred root in many cultures for around 4000 years now, particularly India and Asian countries. So sacred it is has been used in religious ceremonies in India for centuries. Wow!
This must be a special herb, lets find out why?
This root is used in many different forms from food, teas, powders and supplements. Known for a pungent smell and an orange/ginger flavor, it often goes well with soups and casseroles. Much of the Indian culture uses this herb/spice daily in their cooking, beauty routines from drinking it to wearing it as a mask. It is great for acne, eczema and wrinkles. It is an anti-inflammatory so it can help with many skin issues from the inside out. Because the consumption of Turmeric can positively effect the endocrine system and balance hormones, it can fix so many problems from weight management to mood, to acne to healthy breast tissue.

Well the best news about Turmeric herb is that it contains curcumin, which literally prevents tumorous cells and cell proliferation in the human breast. “The apoptosis is involved in the curcumin-induced inhibition of tumor cell growth. It was found that curcumin inhibited the expression of Ki-67, proiferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), and p53 mRNAs in breast cancer cells.” -ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
Turmeric contains more than 300 naturally occurring components including beta-carotene, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), calcium, flavonoids, fiber, iron, niacin, potassium, zinc + include a 26% daily value in manganese and 16% in iron. It’s also an excellent source of fiber, vitamin B6, potassium, and good amounts of magnesium.
Turmeric acts as a sort of stimulant, helping to filter toxins, aids digestion and absorption of vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids.
More and more studies are showing that Turmeric is a cancer fighting root, especially breast cancer. “The main active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin or diferuloyl methane, which laboratory studies have shown does have anticancer effects on cancer cells.” -cancerresearchuk.org
Not only is Turmeric a cancer fighting herb, it helps to treat stomach ulcers, heart burn, gallstones, allergies, diabetes, depression, wound healing, skin issues and even helps with memory and reducing the chance of Alzheimer’s disease.
“However, the curcumin content of turmeric is not that high… it’s around 3%, by weight.
Most of the studies on this herb are using turmeric extracts that contain mostly curcumin itself, with dosages usually exceeding 1 gram per day. It would be very difficult to reach these levels just using the turmeric spice in your foods.” -healthline.com What this means is that the best way to get optimal amounts to actually work at a strength capable of offering the anticancer, anti-inflammatory benefits, we must take a high concentration form.
What this means is that it is most effective to take a supplement or powder that is a concentrated dose. Besides most people who are not acquainted to the flavor of Turmeric may not love eating as much of it that is needed to acquire enough to induce its benefits.
How Much Turmeric Should We Take Daily to Get the Effective Dose?
It is recommend somewhere around 500 mg of curcumin twice daily. Adding to your food is great, but not necessarily efficient and some do not prefer to eat as much that is necessary. Turmeric Teas are great and have been proven to be potent enough for many women and finally it is quite simple to take a supplement daily. Again I like to remind you to not take your full dose at once (no matter what it is), it is much better to spread your herbal doses throughout your meal times. This way your body is continuously digesting a manageable amount and you will be able to get as much of the dose circulating throughout your body as possible.
How Does Turmeric Encourage Breast Growth?
Turmeric is a great herb for women and men likewise for balancing hormones and increasing healthy amounts of low registering hormones. Such as in men who have too high of estrogen or too low of testosterone, can actually benefit from increased testosterone when they consume a concentrated version of Turmeric. In women it can also help us, by increasing progesterone levels, which is just as important as estrogen for healthy breast development. I know many women who are entering the NBE journey believing they need to increase their estrogen to the tenth degree, this is not the best protocol to increase your breast size. In most cases women around 27 plus (especially mama’s), are lacking in progesterone, due to age and pregnancy. Quick question: “Have you looked at your breasts and see a flattened or dipping appearance?”, well progesterone is the hormone that adds beautiful fullness and roundness. So by adding Turmeric to your natural breast enlargement program, you are helping to increase progesterone and thus your hormones are able to be unleashed to their full potential.
“Progesterone has many other important functions in your body such as maintaining bone density; normalising blood sugar levels; protecting your breasts against fibrcystic changes and keeping libido up!” -livingayurveda.com.au
In many cases women in an NBE program who understand that their progesterone levels are low, focus on this by consuming Turmeric, Maca, applying USP progesterone cream

How to know if You Have Low Progesterone Levels?
A very significant sign of low progesterone in women is anxiety and depression. In addition there is a myriad of other symptoms and real problems that can conflict with a healthy life like: migraines, low-sex drive, hot flashes (which I was getting every night and I am in my thirties), acne, tubular breast appearance, irregular menstruation. Low progesterone can cause Estrogen Dominance, acknowledging this can assess our true problem.
Estrogen Dominance Symptoms (Low Progesterone) Symptoms:
- weight gain
- decreased sex drive, mood swings, and depression
- PMS, irregular menstrual cycle, heavy bleeding
- breast tenderness, fibrocystic breasts
- fibroids, endometriosis
- gallbladder problems
- thyroid dysfunction
Please note that taking a phyto rich herbs will not necessarily make you more estrogen dominant. Herbs like Pueraria Mirifica is actually shown to help to filter out xenoestrogens (man-made chemical estrogen, mimicking our own by the 1000’s). These are bad, they actually reduce your good estrogen by eventually shutting down your estrogen receptors, because your body says, “I’ve had enough, I cannot handle anymore”. “Studies have shown that curcumin significantly slows the growth of breast cancer cells which were started by exposure to pesticides”… These pesticides are xenoestrogens.
By naturally increasing progesterone levels, we can help to regulate our estrogen and actually work out the stagnant problem of estrogen dominance. Estrogen can work at it’s best if it is not overworking. When Progesterone levels rise, your hormones can establish beautiful breasts and healthy bodies.
