Pueraria Mirifica for Men

In previous posts, we’ve talked a lot about the benefits of Pueraria Mirifica and its affect in particular on women and those at the age of menopause. However, the benefits of this miracle plant are also creating themselves a big reputation in the transgender community.

Pueraria Mirifica for Men in the Transgender Community

So when we’re asked ‘what are the benefits of Pueraria Mirifica for men’, we dive into the hormonal treatments for transgender women and men. Pueraria Mirifica is known to naturally increase the levels of estrogen within the body. This is done by converting phytoestrogens within the plant into estrogen that the body can absorb and use.

pueraria increase tissues

The biggest use for Pueraria Mirifica in the transgender community would be for breast enlargement. Pueraria Mirifica works to promote blood circulation in the breasts whilst encouraging the growth of protein in the fatty tissues that surround the breast. Overtime, this works to increase the breasts in firmness and size.


The body typically finds its source of phyto-estrogens within products such as soy. However, as the male body naturally has lower estrogen levels, the amount of estrogen taken from these basic products would not make much difference. Pueraria Mirifica contains phyto-estrogens 3000 times more potent.

Male Pueraria Mirifica Usage

With regular use, the male consumer can see the results within 1-3 months. This long wait time is so that the body can adjust to the hormone changes and begin the enhancement.

Any man hoping to use the plant for significant breast enlargement will need to opt for an enhancement treatment for 3-6 months. Sometimes, it is even necessary to continue taking the supplements for up to 12 months.

Once you’re happy with the enhancement and hormone changes, you should continue to use Pueraria Mirifica to maintain firmness. Reducing the dosage will prevent further growth. Maintaining a level of estrogen is vital.

Memory & other benefits

Pueraria Mirifica has recently been found to improve memory. Of course, once the levels of estrogen are high enough for breast enlargement to begin, the consumer will begin to experience all the amazing other benefits Pueraria Mirifica has on the body – from shiny, healthy hair, to toned, smoother skin.

Pueraria Mirifica Results

In our previous blog posts we have covered the benefits of Pueraria Mirifica and the products made from its fruit, seeds and extracts.

But how can we prove our words are true? In this post, we’ll talk about a number of studies which have taken place, and the results of each as well as explaining in more detail the science behind the plant and its benefits. This will help to prove just how beneficial Pueraria Mirifica can be.

Pueraria Mirifica Results for Breast Enlargement

pueraria mirifica before after

Breast Enlargement is probably the most popular effect that Pueraria Mirifica has on the body. By taking a supplement or massaging a cream or lotion into the breasts, many women – and men – have seen an increase in breast size, as well as a toned shape and firmness.

Case Study: Professor Kuramoshi & Yuthana

Professor Kuramoshi and professor Yuthana hosted the first experiment into the plant as a herbal breast enhancement product. They tested the plant on 50 Japanese women aging from 20, to 49 (Premenopausal, fertile women). Each woman received a daily dosage of Pueraria Mirifica between 100mg to 600mg.

70% of the women observed breast enlargement as well as skin firmness.

Case Study: Chulalongkorn University

Students at the University of Chulalongkorn, Bangkok more recently took part in a study in the year 2000.

Groups of roughly 30 women (32 in one group, 34 in another, 31 in the last) were given a dosage to take daily for 15 days a month. One group received a 400mg dose, and another 800mg. The last group was given a placebo.

The results were much more conclusive than those in the original herbal breast enhancement experiment by the professors. After taking the supplement for two months (30 days with the supplement in total), 40.6% of women taking 400mg a day confirmed their breasts felt firmer and perkier. However, only 9.38% had noticed a noticeable breast enlargement.

Meanwhile, 88.2% reported new firmness in the breasts and a striking 82.4% also confirmed an increase in breast size.

These results testified the point that small doses can make a great difference to the firmness of the breasts by encouraging blood circulation and strengthening the tissue around it. Meanwhile, a large dose can be used to add size and fullness to the breasts – encouraging growth of the fatty tissues around the breast.

Additional Studies

Other studies into the Pueraria Mirifica plant and its benefit for breast enhancement found plenty more specific instructions when using the lotions and supplements for this reason. From the results of these studies, the following has been concluded:

  • 90% of women will experience the effects of the phyto-estrogen in the plant which induces cell turgidty and therefore breast firmness. Not everyone will experience the same levels of growth however, and some women may not notice any change in size. 10% of women do not experience any effect and this is said to be due to physiological and emotion differences in all of us.
  • For the 90% who notice an increase in size, Pueraria Mirifica can be an all-natural way to enlarge the breasts by anywhere up to 1 inch bigger than the original size. This effect will last for 2-3months if treatment is not continued.
  • When used in a lotion form, women can benefit from breast enlargement if taken with calcium supplements and partaking in chest exercises.
  • The body best absorbs Pueraria Mirifica in the form of a fine powder taking in small milligrams daily. Due to the strength of the phyto-estrogens, only tiny amounts of the concentrated powder should be taken per day.
  • Some women may notice an increase in breast size within a matter of days – some have reported an increase of 2.5cm within five days. These women may notice a plateau of enlargement after this: Some women’s bodies will reach a peak size quicker than others, thanks to a quick response system in their body.

A little science into the Pueraria Mirifica Results for Breasts

Increase in breast size is due to the improved development of mammary tissue within the breast that branches to the ducts in the nipples. Pueraria Mirifica will increase the number of fatty tissues and ligaments, too, to provide support for the new, larger shape of each breast.

When Menopause begins, the estrogen hormones decrease in production which causes a number of wrinkles, mood changes, hot flushes and plenty more. The phase can be extremely difficult for some women.


The company Bio-Botanica feel so strongly about the benefits of Pueraria Mirifica and its reduction of menopausal symptoms that it patented a particular extract from the plant: Puresterol. In their own research, they found this particular extract could be used for internal and external application and cultivates the highest levels of active ingredients from the plant itself. The active ingredients are in the process of being tested fully to support Bio-Botanica’s findings for using the plant to alleviate menopausal symptoms.
The patent also boasts that the extract can reduce wrinkles and eye irritation when applied to the skin.

Efficacy and safety of Pueraria Mirifica (Kwao Kruea Khao) for the treatment of vasomotor symptoms in premenopausal women: Phase II

The study concluded: “Pueraria mirifica, containing phytoestrogens, relatively alleviated the climacteric symptoms in premenopausal women. The transient negative profiles occurred in a small number of subjects that included anemia, and liver profiles. While there was a slight decrease in lipoproteins and an increase in hormonal profiles, Pueraria mirifica demonstrates great promise in the treatment of climacteric symptoms among premenopausal women.”

Additional Studies

  • Studies have shown that the phyto-estrogen in the Pueraria Mirifica plant will act as a new female hormone and will nourish the physical health of the individual. It is advised that a low dose each day is taken to feel the effects.

In the clinical research study done into Pueraria Mirifica as a herbal breast enlargement, results show that one capsule a day – either after breakfast or before bed – is ideal for the aging person. Causing no effect on the breast at this low dose, the users still noticed an increase in the health of their skin, hair and bones.

  • Another placebo trial featuring a double-blind technique experimented with a number of doses and strength in contrast with a placebo medicine to see how Pueraria really worked. Using a group of postmenopausal women (45-60 years of age), each volunteer was measured for how the medication had affected their blood lipids, bone alkaline, endometrial thickness and breast parameters. To ensure toxicity levels were double checked, liver and renal blood parameters were also measured.

    The group took their designated dose for 24 weeks. Those taking Pueraria had a noticeable decrease in bone alkaline phosphatase. This means that the Pueraria Mirifica doses did in fact help with increasing the strength of bones – an issue that many women end up suffering with in menopause.

    Although this was a breakthrough, the study didn’t find a noticeable change in the breasts of endometrium, which therefore concluded the hypothesis that the plant has an effect on the uterine lining or breast tissue in menopausal women to a pharmaceutical grade.

  • A clinical pilot study – which was later followed up with a larger clinical trial – found that menopausal women who took the Pueraria Mirifica supplements at 50mg or 100mg daily had reduced hot flushes and night sweats. The study was measured over 6 months.

Vaginal Health
pueraria mirifica and libido

Another effect of Menopause is a decrease in libido and general vaginal health. It is thought that whilst Pueraria Mirifica cannot improve sex drive, it can improve vaginal  health – alleviate dryness and the thinning of the lining. This, in turn, has had positive effects on a women’s sex drive.

Beneficial Estrogenic Effects of Pueraria mirifica on Vaginal Health in Postmenopausal Women

In 2007, a study by the Department of Obstertrics and Gynaecology at Mahidol Univeristy, Bangkok, was created at the Faculty of Medicine at Ramathibodi Hospital.
The study aimed to test whether Pueraria any effect on vaginal health. This was measure through vaginal symptoms, health index, PH rating, and the vaginal cytology in postmenopausal women.

To achieve their conclusion, students used women aged 45 – 60 who had volunteered for the randomised, double-blind placebo study.

Each volunteer received either a 20, 30 or 50mg dose of Pueraria or a placebo. They took the capsule for 24 weeks, once a day.

71 women took part and were inspected after the 24 weeks and during. Groups who received the real Pueraria capsules noticed a decrease in vaginal dryness after just 12 weeks. Vaginal maturation index was also seen to increase. Neither the Pueraria takers, nor the placebo takers experience any side effects within the experiment.

Breast Cancer Prevention

With its Ancient medicinal background, Pueraria Mirifica is known to cure, heal and prevent over 300 illnesses. One off which is cancer. The plant is believed to have preventative powers over cancerous cells to stop them from developing. Research still needs to be done into this category however, if successful, herbal treatments could change the cancer epidemic entirely. For now, doctors suggest taking the herbal supplement as a preventative precaution daily.

Emory University School of Medicine & Phramongkutklao College of Medicine

Studies into Pueraria Mirifica and its involvement with preventing breast cancer have taken place within the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia. The students partnered with The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Phramongkutklao College of Medicine in Bangkok for the trial.

The studies focus on breast cell lines and the effects of Pueraria Mirifica in this area. The result proved root extract from the plant has active anti-estrogenic properties which fight against aggressive cell cancer lines. This was particularly focused on cell lines within the female breasts.

No Side Effects

Pueraria Mirifica Plant

Pueraria Mirifica is so favourite amongst ancient medicinal practices because of its all-natural healing powers with no side effects.
As time moves on, the risk of certain supplements, medicines and lotions is a growing concern.

Ministry of Public Health, Thailand

Officials from the Ministry of Public Health endorse Pueraria thanks to its history in the country for thousands of years. The ministry explains that it has been used safely for centuries and modern science supports its safety and efficiency. Particularly when acting as a medication or breast enhancer.

The Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, 2009

Using the prescribed doses for therapeutic practise, the Brazilian Journal of Medical and Biological Research, published in September 2009 that their tests supported the safe use of Pueraria Mirifica. This was both as a dietary supplement or ingredient for cosmetics.

We understand that simply being told the benefits of a product isn’t always enough. Occasionally, we are dubious about the ingredients of a product and the efficiency of its use. Without scientific proof  or friends referrals, it can be hard to part with money to try a new product.

The above is intended to prove to you just how versatile the Pueraria Mirifica plant is. It is here to show the different ways it can benefit you. Most studies into the plant are focus on post-menopausal women, but it is easy to see that everyone can benefit from these effects. The benefits can be reaped at any age, even during the reproductive ages.

Pueraria Mirifica Benefits

Pueraria Mirifica is a native Asian plant. It has been used by Thailand’s Doctors and medicinal industry for hundreds of years. Pueraria is used in pharmaceutical products to heal, prevent and alleviate symptoms of infection and illness.  The plant is currently growing in popularity as a female hormone supplement.  But why are we only just hearing about the plant, and what are the main Pueraria Mirifica Benefits?

Similar to its counterparts, Pueraria is one of three plants referred to as ‘Kwao Krua’. The triple is often referred to as a ‘fountain of youth’ for older women. It is known as the ‘miracle herb’ across the continent, and its benefits are often underestimated.

The Pueraria herb has a high concentrate of phytoestrogens known as Chromenes that work similarly – if not better – than estrogen naturally created within the body.

For this reason, the plant is used in hormone replacement therapies.

The plant is extremely rich in vitamins and proteins which helps keeps skin stay strong and hydrated. This concentrated vitamin source also helps the body to fight again free radicals and much more.

Pueraria Mirifica Plant


What are the Pueraria Mirifica benefits?

Like all supplements available on the market, the plant can be taken in capsule form, and there are a number of Pueraria Mirifica benefits. These benefits are heavily targeted towards females over a particularly older age due to the estrogen placebo effect the plant offers. However, this does not affect the advantages younger females could experience – especially when looking to prevent illness in the future.

Menopause & Aging

Menopause is an inevitable condition that all women develop in later life. It affects everyone differently and is often unpredictable in behavior. The symptoms of menopause can be very unpleasant and include hot flushes, excessive sweating and loss of sleep. Menopause also leads to vaginal dryness a loss in libido. Symptoms may also include:

  • Anxiety and tension
  • Chronic depression
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Fatigue and Insomnia
  • Bone Loss
  • Balding

The Menopausal phase occurs when the body begins producing less progesterone and oestrogen.

How Does the Plant Help Menopause?

Before Menopause has begun, or in the early stages, Pueraria Mirifica works with the body to provide a placebo oestrogen effect. Oestrogen supplements – like Pueraria – soothe menopause symptoms like sweating and night flushes.

Research into the plant’s benefits for Menopause has already taken place and involved a number of women taking part in a one month trial; taking a Pueraria supplement each day.

By the end of the month, the women had noticed a decline in night sweats and flushes. Some had even claimed to feel the difference within days of the trial starting. Other members of the trial received a placebo and the improvement of symptoms was much less apparent.

Along with Menopause, Pueraria Mirifica benefits the whole aging process and the conditions that might come with it.

The plant is rich of miroestrol and flavonoids which help to improve blood circulation and memory. This could be a breakthrough for the treatment or prevention of aging diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

Pueraria gives you a natural boost in energy, too, which ultimately gives the body the chance to fight off infection better.  It also helps the body to fight against greying hair and cellulite.

Before Menopause

Taking a Pueraria supplement is beneficial for help those struggling to offset the symptoms of menopause. However, the plant also aids younger females; by regulating menstrual cycles and preventing irregularities. Also working as a pain relief, it soothes the body and stomach when suffering from menstrual pain and cramps.



Pueraria Mirifica for Vaginal Health

As mention above, vaginal dryness is often a symptom of menopause, and this can cause a drop in libido as well as overall bodily hygiene and health.

Life events such as child birth or a busy sex life can cause the vaginal wall to become thin and saturated – giving women less feeling during intercourse.

Collagens help to regain vaginal tightness and elasticity, so that the walls can become thicker once again. In order to increase the collagen counts in our body, we have to first increase the estrogen activity. This is typically done through hormone replacement therapy.

Increasing this through hormone replacement therapy can be a hefty commitment and quite expensive. This is why Pueraria is becoming popular as an all-natural alternative.
The plant is used in supplements, lotions and creams to improve tightness and elasticity. So far, no side effects are currently known regarding taking the supplement for such reasons.

A study at the Thai Ministry of Public Health reported that 85% of women who took Pueraria Mirifica saw an increase in vaginal lubrication. This, in turn, improved pleasure during intercourse and made it much more enjoyable for post-menopausal women. Naturally, this increase libido.

Pueraria Mirifica has even been claimed as an aphrodisiac; giving you even more reason to use its products.

Natural Contraception?

Pueraria is sometimes seen as an all-natural contraception solution for men and women.

In men, taking the supplement leads to a disinterest or infrequent breeding behaviors. In women the supplement causes the vagina to widen the womb and vagina – preventing ovulation from ever happening.

This is only a claim however, and plenty more research needs to be done to prove its real effectiveness. We would not recommend using Pueraria products as a singular contraceptive and would encourage the use of other protection solutions.

Effects on Alcohol

Pueraria lowers the blood alcohol levels after alcohol is consumed. This is done by suppressing the enzyme activity to break down the drink. The effect is supposed to lessen the effects of alcohol on the body and protect the liver from poisoning and damage induced by the drink.

High alcohol levels in the blood can be noticed through blurred vision, slurred words and irrational behavior or slower reactions.

Research has also found that Pueraria works to alleviate addiction. Subjects in an experiment whom were using Pueraria experienced less alcohol-withdrawal symptoms or urges to drink when compared with those taking the placebo.

Although this is a breakthrough for potentially helping addicts, the experiments and research still need plenty more investigating.

Pueraria Mirifica Prevents Osteoporosis



Along with menopause, aging leads to other conditions such as Dementia and Osteoporosis. The illness progressively makes the bones weak and brittle – and there is more chance of fractures and breakages.

What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is an illness that develops over a number of years due to hormonal changes or a deficit of vitamins in the body. The condition is typically only diagnosed once it has caused a fracture or chip in the bones.

The illness makes bones so weak and fragile that even a hard cough could end up fracturing a rib.

How does the supplement benefit Osteoporosis sufferers?

Pueraria Mirifica is known to improve bone health and reduce the risk of these conditions from developing.

When taken with a source of calcium, phytoestrogen in Pueraria absorbs into the bloodstream to fights off the Osteoporosis symptoms. Working with the calcium, the tablet helps strengthen the bones and joints by encouraging the growth of proteins in the body.

Osteoporosis tends to develop in aging women, and Pueraria Mirifica products can reduce the risk.

Breast Enlargement



There are very few women entirely happy with their appearance, and one of the main insecurities for older women are breasts.

Women opt for augmentation surgeries to reduce or increase the size of breasts, and add a firm, youthful look. However, as an alternative to surgery Pueraria Mirifica is used in an affordable lotion to provide a similar effect. The lotion is massaged into the breasts in a circular motion to enhance their shape and size within weeks.

The idea behind the breast enlargement lotions is that the massaging motion increases blood flow to the breasts, whilst the amino-acids found in the plant encourage the growth of fat and breast tissue and gives a fuller look.

Peuraria and Breast Enlargement

Studies into the lotion have shown almost 70% of women saw an increase in their breast size. Many of the women claimed to have noticed an increase of size of up to an inch.

The creams not only work to enhance the breasts, but can also be used in other areas of the body: Gently massaging the lotion in till absorbed can reduce the appearance of stretch marks after pregnancy or weight gain.

Nowadays, Pueraria is popular for its breast augmentation qualities – being extremely popular in the Western world. Studies at Thailand’s Chualalongkom University suggest the creams can increase breast size by 80%.

Along with breast enhancement,  other studies from England have also proven benefits to skin and hair.

Pueraria Mirifica is an all-natural and safe product to use. However it is often suggested that supplements and lotions are not used by those women who are pregnant or breast-feeding.

Phytoestrogrens and its effect on breast enlargement are often seen more as a positive side effect of Pueraria. But many see this as the main benefit of the plant. The chemical can also effect or delay menstruation cycles – a quality suggested to decrease the risk of hormonal cancers. Despite this added advantage, it is still important to be weary of products being used during pregnancy or breast feeding.


Studies and experiments into the effects of Peuraria on breast enlargements has also brought back plenty of information regarding improvements to the skin and hair too. Those taking the supplement will notice stronger hair with less malting, and even the colour of the hair is preserved.


Thanks to the presence of estrogen and phytoestrogens in the plant naturally, Pueraria hydrates skin and encourages collagen production. This gives the skin a healthier and youthful look. The plant is a great preventative ingredient for anti-ageing creams too, prevent the appearance of wrinkles.

The effect of increasing hormones within the body (like the faux-estrogens found in the plant ) leads to less excess oil being produced on the skin’s surface. It also helps reduce the appearance of acne, and melisma.

Peuraria Mirifica aids Weight Loss

Another Pueraria Mirifica benefit is its aid during weight loss. This is yet again gaining the plant a name in the health and fitness industries in the Western world.

The plant reduces appetite which can help people lose weight progressively. By reducing the appetite, people are less likely to give in to cravings and overeat.

An All Round Health Star

Whilst delving deep into the specific Pueraria Mirifica Benefits, it’s also great to know the all-round health bonuses the product can provide.

The plant is known to help boost the body’s natural energy and revitalise and nourish the blood. The invigorating effects help relieve the pains and aches our bodies go through every day.

After a hard day’s work, the plant also encourages healthy sleeping patterns, which in turn provides relaxation into your daily routine and alleviates tiredness and fatigue.

More Research to be Done

There’s already so many Pueraria Mirifica Benefits in any of the forms it is available. However, newer experiments and services suggest it can help prevent blurred vision and cataracts, and even cancers such as breast cancer and uterus related cancers. Whilst these would be revolutionary discovers – changing our cancer treatment industry forever – there is still very little evidence to back up the theories.

How To Take Pueraria Mirifica?

Pueraria Tablets

Pueraria is commonly taken as a supplement tablets like any other multivitamin. It is also taken in powder form, as a liquid or used in lotions for massaging onto the skin directly.

It is advised that the supplement is taken with calcium-rich food or drink. Examples would be milk, cheese and even nuts. Calcium helps the body to absorb phytoestrogens into the body.

The plant is found in a range of products at health shops or drug stores. It is often ordered in capsules, though gums and powders are also available.

You’ll need to look out for products that certify that they offer around 25% of isoflayones to get the best effects. The supplement may interact with other illnesses or medications you’re taking, so discuss this with your doctor or pharmacists before using.
