Plantestrogen & breast cancer:
It is proven that Pueraria mirifica inhibit the growth and proliferation of breast cancer cells. We just don`t know exactly how effective it is.
Phytoestrogens or plantestrogen – are acting differently from estrogen produced by the body. It may affect communication pathways between cells, prevent the formation of blood vessels to tumors or alter processes involved in the processing of DNA for cell multiplication. Which of these effects occur is unknown. It is very possible that more than one of them may be working. Also, the effects in various parts of the body may be different. Two of the phytoestrogens that are responsible for this desired effect on cancer, is called tectorigenin and spinasterol.
Osteoporosis is a condition that is common in women with problems relating to menopause. The bones become weak and more prone to breaking.
Pueraria mirifica has been shown to improve skeletal health, which can reduce the risk of osteoporosis. Researchers believe that the phytoestrogens in pueraria mirifica are helping fight osteoporosis. Taking Pueraria with calcium, as is recommended to aid absorption, would further help combat osteoporosis.
But that is only one of many other benefits that Pueraria mirifica has. It does wonders for women’s body and health. For instance, it is great for women with menopausal problems by helping the body stay young, healthy, and vibrant.
According to the study conducted at the School of Medicine, Saint Mariane University, Tokyo, Japan by Kuramoshi, T. and Smitasiri, Y. about the preliminary study of Pueraria mirifica in Japanese females, 50 healthy menstruating volunteer females, ages 20 to 49, were given between 100 to 600 mg orally of Pueraria mirifica root powder daily as capsules for 7 days, two weeks after menstruation. No reports of abnormally heavy, severe, or missed menstruation were recorded.
Pueraria mirifica has traditionally been known to regrow and strengthen hair, increase energy and sex drive and leading to a more vibrant life.
Men can also benefit from Pueraria Mirifica. Men often suffer from testosterone hormone reductions due to many factors such as aging, body fat, nutritional deficiencies, and medications. Taking Pueraria mirifica can definitely help boost men’s testosterone levels. But men have to be aware that taking Pueraria mirifica can also increase the size of male breasts also.
While there is no clinical trials to prove it, Pueraria mirifica is best known for its ability to enhance the breasts size for women with small breasts. It supposedly has a great effect on the growth, firmness, and shape of the breasts when taken regularly. Not only does it increase breast size, but it is also said to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.
Caution: Even though pueraria mirifica is safe and natural, there are some groups of people who should not take it. Pregnant women and people who have a hormone-responsive cancer should not take this supplement. As pueraria contains phytoestrogens, it may affect periods such as delaying menstruation by making the menstrual cycle longer. This is thought to be beneficial in reducing the overall risk of hormone related cancers, but it is still worth bearing in mind as a potential side effect that you may not be expecting.
