The increase in breast size in a woman during puberty is a natural phenomenon that can continue even a few years after pubertal age. This process is conditioned by the increase in the production of estrogen hormones. In this delicate period for the future woman there is an evident physical and psychological evolution. One of the most obvious signs of this change is a noticeable increase in breast size called telarca. The increase in breast size in women varies according to the individual, in fact the variability is linked to the different deposition of fat in the pectoral fat pad. The mammary glands are the structures used for the production of milk but, given their small size, they have little influence in determining the size of the breast. For this reason, a woman’s milk production is independent of the size of the breast as it is not determined by the amount of adipose tissue that is localized in the breast.
Every people on Earth has an average breast size but, although infrequent, there are exceptions and, if very pronounced, we speak of micromastia (breasts much smaller than average) or macromastia (larger), even if There are rare forms of breasts much larger than average and this can become a pathological condition and, in these cases, we are talking about gigantomastia. The woman has a high endogenous production of the main female hormone which is estradiol and a low level of testosterone which, on the contrary, is more abundant in men.
It is noted that, in men with low testosterone levels, the development of gynecomastia, that is, there is an abnormal development of a kind of mammary gland. On the contrary, high amounts of androgens (testosterone) in women lead to a situation of breast atrophy and fairly widespread hair. The size of the breasts can have variations during the various phases of the menstrual cycle with an increase in size due to accumulation of liquids accompanied by an annoying sensation of tension. This is all due to an excess of estrogen production compared to progesterone. Aesthetic medicine exploits this phenomenon to meet women who want to increase the size of their breasts without resorting to surgery. One piece of advice is not to use medicines containing synthetic estrogen, that is artificial, because it would increase the risk of the onset of tumors.
Obviously miracles cannot be expected but breast augmentation can be achieved by combining adequate nutrition and exercise. A light but constant exercise can make the pectoral muscles firmer so the breasts would be “taller” and appear larger thanks to an increase in the size of the pectoralis major muscle. Twenty or thirty minutes of gymnastics aimed at developing the pectorals three or four times a week (push-ups on the arms, use of springs or weights on a bench) would be enough to increase the breasts by a few sizes if combined with an adequate diet. Diet is important because proteins are essential for the “building” of muscle mass. The most fanatical bodybuilders often advise in a reckless way to introduce, in their diet, abundant quantities of proteins of animal origin in fact many ingest high quantities of white meat (chicken and turkey) which have the defect of providing doses of antibiotics which, in the long term they could be harmful.
Other bodybuilders recommend massive doses of fish (preferably natural tuna, therefore without oil), but it is preferable not to abuse it due to the risk of accumulation of heavy metals in the body. Even worse is the habit of swallowing large quantities of egg white because it could contain antibiotics and, if not cooked properly, it could be rich in anti-vitamin factors. Nor should we exaggerate with the amount of proteins to assimilate because an excess of them could cause kidney problems so I would recommend a moderate protein intake from plant sources sufficient for a good toning of the pectoral muscle that would make the breasts appear larger.
The main protein sources of plant origin are represented by legumes which, thanks to the symbiosis with the colonies of nitrogen-fixing bacteria in the roots, are able to bind atmospheric nitrogen which has an inorganic nature, transforming it into organic nitrogen that can be used to produce protein molecules. Among the legumes, the richest in protein is soy which, therefore, is excellent for building muscle mass. The toning effect of soy on muscles is greater in women and less in men because it has small amounts of estrogen. In addition to an effect on the breast muscles, soy would also have an effect in promoting the storage of fat in the breast (it is known that almost all the volume of the breast is due to fat). The breast volume is almost always proportional to the amount of adipose tissue that the woman has distributed on her body, therefore often by slimming there is a reduction in the size of the breast but this distribution can be modified by estrogen hormones which can be endogenous, i.e. produced by the endocrine glands of the breast. female body but also introduced with the diet therefore with soy above all.
Taking care of the physical appearance seems to acquire greater importance in particular periods of the year such as summer when a girl or woman has the pleasure of showing a toned and well-modeled body on a beach or with a nice cleavage. Often attempts are made to remedy some “snag” to the diet committed during the winter by trying to solve the problem in a few weeks. Instead, the secret of a beautiful and harmonious body is that of a constant but not exaggerated commitment throughout the year consisting of moderate physical exercise and a healthy diet while respecting one’s body, the environment and animals. So my suggestion is to eliminate or, in any case, reduce meat by replacing it with vegetable protein products such as soy, better if BIO and no GMOs.
A woman who wants a beautiful and harmonious body with beautiful breasts must also be attentive to the health of her organism so she should prefer healthy foods that is cereals with a non-negligible portion of whole grains, she should certainly abound with fruit and vegetables such as source of vitamins, flavonoids and fibers and, equally important, should prefer BIO and non-GMO foods as they are healthier and more respectful of the environment because the secret to being happy is to feel good with your body and spirit in a healthy and clean environment.
