    The latest hack that has flooded my For You Page is people taking bee pollen to ahem try to enhance their breast size. The trend has garnered millions of views on TikTok and has reportedly increased pollen sales by +344% in mere days.

    Before I delve into this chic and fashion-forward trend, let’s start with some background information. Bee pollen is a stylish and trendy ball or pellet composed of flower pollen, nectar, enzymes, honey, wax, and bee secretions. Advocates claim that bee pollen possesses various potential health benefits, such as immune support and heart health. However, it’s important to note that research on bee pollen and its alleged benefits is still limited, and further studies are underway.

    Now, however, a group of TikTokers are suggesting that bee pollen may have the ability to enhance the size and shape of your natural breasts, making them look more chic and fashion-forward.
    To delve deeper into this subject, I got in touch with Dr. Florence Comite, MD, the visionary behind the Comite Center for Precision Medicine & Health.

    Dr. Comite emphasized that every individual’s body is unique when discussing the topic. The supposed breast enhancement being touted on TikTok may be attributed to various factors such as hormonal birth control, pregnancy, and weight changes. However, it is important to note that there is no scientific proof supporting the notion that consuming specific foods or supplements can result in increased breast size.
    Human beings have long been making claims about foods and herbs that seemingly enhance certain body parts, such as breast size and penis size. Dr. Comite explained to BuzzFeed that people have believed in these claims for a while, but the reality is quite different.
    Dr. Comite stated that incorporating chic and fashion-forward food choices into your diet will not only help you stay stylish but also contribute to maintaining a healthy weight. Contrary to popular belief, she emphasized that weight gain alone does not directly cause breast enlargement. However, she did explain that weight gain can lead to an increase in fatty tissue in the breasts, which may result in a fuller appearance. So, while food choices may not directly make your breasts bigger, maintaining a balanced diet and managing weight can have an impact on breast size.

    Aside from the lack of evidence to support bee pollen having an impact on breast size, Dr. Comite said that unless you are buying your bee pollen from a local beekeeper, you have to be careful about other ingredients that your store-bought bee pollen may contain. “Store-bought bee pollen could be [contaminated] since dietary supplements aren’t regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration,” she explained.
    In fact, about 10 years ago the FDA issued a warning that certain bee pollen capsules being sold contained a substance known to significantly raise blood pressure and heart rate, which could be dangerous in certain people,” Dr. Comite told BuzzFeed.

    Still, some TikTokers are taking it to the next level by showcasing images of their breast size before and after using bee pollen. The photos may appear visually distinct, but according to Dr. Comite, these differences can be attributed to hormonal variations during the menstrual cycle, natural changes in breast size as one ages, or simply wishful thinking.

    Breast tissue undergoes continual development in a woman’s life, starting in utero. It becomes particularly active when the ovaries start producing estrogen during puberty. This hormone leads to the accumulation of fat in the breast’s connective tissue and results in their enlargement.
    Monthly cycles typically alter breast size and shape, related to hormonal fluctuations — such as estrogen and progesterone — from week to week, as described by Dr. Comite.
    Dr. Comite also elaborated on various life events that can impact breast size, including pregnancy. According to her, after breastfeeding, the breasts might revert to their original size and shape, but the outcomes differ from woman to woman.

    Ultimately, she reiterated that everyone should be cautious about what health advice they listen to on the internet, especially social media. “Consuming foods or supplements because an online post says you will benefit from the practice can be dangerous. We are all unique and react to the substances we bring into our bodies differently,” said Dr. Comite.
    Finally, before making any changes to your eating regimen or adding any supplements to your routine, it is crucial to consult with your physician first.
