Magazines and Periodicals Featuring Greenbush Herbs
Greenbush herbs have been featured in Herbs for Health magazine, First for Women magazine and in Natural Awakenings across the country. Read on for links, testimonials and more information.
A recent article in First for Women featured a Greenbush customer, Maya Talisman, who used our Enhancement Blend extract and cured her severe PMS symptoms. Thanks to the article many new women are trying the formula, as well as other Greenbush products, and they are finding that pure and potent herbal medicines can be suprisingly effective. We are already getting wonderful feedback and will share it with you below along with the original article.
A couple of notes on the article: The price quoted in the magazine ($27) was incorrect. The Enhancement Blend extract is only $19.95. And they singled out fenugreek, leading some to believe that it was the only herb in the formula that helps. Though fenugreek itself is a wonderful herb, in reality the other herbs in the formula are also helpful with hormone balance, health and energy. We are still happy that more women are learning about the positive effects of these herbs and ways to improve their lives for years to come.

"Fenugreek Cured my PMS!"
Jamming the phone between her ear and shoulder, Maya Talisman Frost wildly motioned her daughter to stay out of the room before snapping: "Talya, can't you see I'm on an important call in here!" Minutes after the blowup, Maya found Talya in her bedroom closet, crying. "Sweetie, I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to yell. I've been in a bad mood all week."
"It was scary to see how my emotions could boil over and hurt the poeple I love," Maya admits. So that day she ordered an herbal remedy that her friend had mentioned could take the edge off PMS symptoms. Although the product, which contained fenugreek, was sold to firm up breasts, Maya was told that it was a fantastic mood stabilizer. "It seemed like a stretch, but I didn't want to go the pharmceutical route," she says.
"Now I feel like my best self!"
Maya started putting a couple drops of the extract in her tea. Three weeks later, her period arrived without a single symptom. "I've been using it for three years, and there are no more 'I wanna scream' days," she says. "A bonus is that my breasts are firmer, too!"
The Asian herb that regulates hormones...
PMS symptoms like cramps, bloat and irritability occur when levels of the hormone porgesterone dip. But fenugreek contains diosgenin, a compound that mimics progesterone in the body. "The helps offset progesterone shortfalls to stave off PMS," says Fred Pescatore, M.D., a nutritionist in New York City.
We're here to help!... Maya used Enhancement Blend, $27 for 4 oz., from Greenbush Naturals. To learn more, visit greenbush.net.

Herbs Enhance Healthy Breast Tissue
Using herbs for breast health and enhancement is nothing new. Their healing and mastogenic effects (the enlargement and growth of healthy breast tissue), have been recognized by various cultures throughout the world. Modern science is just becoming aware of the healthy aspects of such phytoestrogens (natural plant compounds that mimic estrogen) and their role in increasing the size and health of the breasts.
For centuries, rumors have floated out of the Middle East noting that harem women historically have been fed fenugreek seeds (Trigonella foenum-graecum) to make them more buxom. According to the phytochemical databases of James Duke, Ph.D., a former researcher with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the seeds contain diosgenin and other mild plant estrogens. He notes in his seminal book, The Green Pharmacy, that, like natural estrogen, these compounds can increase healthy breast tissue.
In India, traditional ayurvedic physicians have long prescribed fenugreek to nursing mothers to increase their milk. In American folk medicine, fenugreek was considered a potent promoter of menstruation. It even became a key ingredient in Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, one of 19th century America's most popular patent medicines for "female weakness" (menstrual discomfort).
Saw palmetto (Serenoa repens; Sabal serrulata), now a popular treatment for prostate enlargement in men, originally had a place in natural medicine as a breast enlarger. Late 19th century author and artist Susan Hale noted that Native Americans in the southeastern United States used saw palmetto berries for both food and medicine, including “the treatment of infertility in women, treatment of underdeveloped breasts, increased lactation [and] painful menstruation cycles.” Duke reports that naturopathic physicians still recommend it today for its breast enhancing effects; in numerous studies the herb has shown no side effects or drug interactions. Wild Yam
In Herbal Healing for Women, author Rosemary Gladstar states that wild yam (Dioscorea villosa) “is the most widely used herb in the world today,” with derivatives of the herb present in thousands of prescription and over-the-counter medicines. It is used both as a breast enhancer and a sexual stimulant, and is recommended by herbalist Susun Weed, author of Breast Cancer?Breast Health!, for fostering healthy breast tissue. Weed suggests adding the herb to creams for breast massage and notes that women using this mixture see improvements in both breast health and size. Duke further notes that wild yam contains less disogenin than fenugreek, but contains other compounds that contribute to breast health and enhancement
Red clover (Trifolium pretense) and soy isoflavones belong to a class of phytoestrogens structurally similar to estrogen. In her book, Menopause with Science and Soul, Judith Boice, a naturopathic physician, notes the balancing effect these nutrients can have and states, “This could at least in part explain why Japanese women tend to be at lower risk for breast and other reproductive cancers.”
Research at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston has spurred interest in the use of turmeric (Curcuma longa) in both preventing and treating various cancers. Their scientists observe that, "Extensive research over the last 50 years has indicated [curcumin] can both prevent and treat cancer.” Its anticancer potential, they believe, “stems from its ability to suppress proliferation of a wide variety of tumor cells.” A study published in Cancer Letters in 1999 showed the herb’s remarkable ability to contain the spread of breast cancer when used in conjunction with other breast cancer treatments.
Herbs and Breast Health
Dr. Andrew Weil, author, medical researcher and head of integrated medicine at the University of Arizona, cites large-scale demographic studies of cancer rates as his rationale for recommending diets rich in estrogenic herbs and foods to women. In his online guide, Healthy Aging, Weil notes that in Asian populations, where women consume up to 20 times more phytoestrogens than western women, rates of breast cancer are one-fifth of what they are in the west. These populations also experience the lowest rate of hysterectomies.
Finally, for anyone considering breast augmentation, wise use of these herbs could be the answer to avoiding painful and sometimes dangerous surgery, while improving overall breast health. As Duke remarks in his book, “If my daughter wanted her breasts enlarged, I’d certainly encourage her to try natural approaches first.”
Greenbush Natural (GreenBush.net) began offering pure, additive-free herbs for breast health and enhancement in 1999, based on the recommendations of the cited experts. Its archives include thousands of unsolicited letters from women describing positive results with the herbs.

When buying herbal medicines be sure to look at the ingredients. Greenbush herbs have no fillers and are never irradiated or sprayed with pesticides. The extracts are alcohol free, medicinal strength and holistically balanced. Manufactured in the US. FDA inspected. Good Manufacturing Practices guidelines. Why not buy the best. Your health depends on it.
Greenbush Bio-Chelated Extracts: Until Bio-Chelation there was simply no good way to make a potent alcohol-free extract. Greenbush alcohol free extracts begin with organic alcohol regardless of whether the final product contains alcohol or not. After finishing the first step in the plant extraction, an additional step is performed to remove the alcohol. This is done by utilizing a proprietary cold extraction process called Bio-Chelation®. Bio-Chelation® describes the cold process vacuum distillation method, which removes all the alcohol initially used to obtain the good herbal extract.
Holistically Balanced Herbal Extracts: It is important to note that a cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum, or Holistic BalanceTM of the plant's constituents in the final product. The end-result is an alcohol-free extract containing the essential properties of the complete herb in a base of vegetable glycerin and water. (Vegetable glycerin is used because it can help to bind certain plant constituents, is natural to the body, easily absorbed, tastes sweet without affecting blood sugar levels, and acts as a good solvent and carrier for the plant constituents).
