Wild Yam


 I started taking Wild Yam pills for various reasons. I have heard this can make your breast size increase is this true? My mother uses wild yam cream and she says her breast size never changed but she is 52 years old and I am 28.

 

Wild Yam can be helpful for balancing certain issues related to female hormones.  It is thought to do this by gently stimulating certain receptors on cells that are related to hormones like estrogen and progesterone.  Although this herb can have gentle hormonal like action on the cells it is not likely strong enough to influence cellular activity enough to change breast size.
