Pharmacy and Medications
hi i have been researching pueraria mirifica for a while now for breast developement and i was wondering if i would be able to find it at a local chemist or health shop? and how much it would possibly cost?
Thank you for contacting Net Wellness. Pueraria mirifica (PM) is a naturally occurring compound that is grown in Northern Thailand. PM was originally used by the locals to prolong life, provide nourishment and an enhanced sense of well-being.
PM can be classified as a phytoestrogen which act similar to estrogens. PM has very limited data and studies that look at the estrogen activity. The only data that is available is centered around menopausal symptom relief. There is not any credible data that shows PM will effect breast development.
