Frequently Asked Questions
How long will it take before I notice results?
Some women notice an increase within as little as two weeks of usage, however we feel a more reasonable expectation is 4-8 weeks. Various factors can influence the speed of results and in particular the more frequently ABT is applied the more rapid the results will be realized. More frequent application is particularly recommended for women seeking to increase firmness/fullness in their breasts.
NOTE: ABT does not work overnight. If you do not think you have the discipline to consistently apply the product 2X/day we strongly urge you to not purchase. We stand by ABT and have a money back guarantee - avoidable returns work against our ability to keep the price to consumers down.
What is the best way to apply ABT?
Apply the same amount and evenly to the entire breast – including the nipple. Gently coat the breast in as few motions as possible– do NOT rigorously massage the cream in as this will cause ABT to lose effectiveness. ABT does not need to be “worked into” the breast. For women seeking lifting, apply ABT from the nipple to the top of the breast.
To the extent possible, try to give ABT 15 minutes post application before you dress or wear tighter clothing (so as to not wipe off the ABT).
When is the best time to apply ABT?
Your body will absorb the cream more readily if applied after a shower or bath. Other good times to apply ABT are 30 minutes before bedtime, in the early morning, and late afternoon.
Is ABT patented?
Yes – US Pat # 6,631,806. In addition to the US Patent Office granting claims for breast fullness, firmness, and increase in tissue volume, they have also granted claims for fibrocystic breast disease, mammary cyst, benign breast pain, fibroid cyst, mammary swelling/tenderness, and post menopausal estrogen insufficiency.
How long do I need to use ABT?
Until you are satisfied with the your results, then you may wish to switch to a maintenance usage schedule of applying once/day or every other day.
Are there any side effects with the usage of ABT?
For women seeking fullness/enhancement there have at times been issues when it seemed as if one breast had achieved more fullness relative to the other – the recommended solution for this being to apply more ABT to the ‘lagging’ breast until the imbalance is corrected. Otherwise, there have been no other reports of adverse events but if you notice redness or any other negative changes stop using ABT immediately.
When would you expect ABT to not be effective?
ABT requires the presence of subcutaneous fat and our experience has generally been with women leading relatively ‘normal’ active lives – therefore we are uncertain of the ability of ABT to be useful for women currently involved in an *extreme* fitness or dieting regime (the types of which are associated with a long-term cessation of the menstrual cycle, for example).
Given that ABT has essential fatty acids, will using it regularly decrease my risk of cancer?
Though there have been some studies suggesting a link between decreased cancer risk and omega-3 fatty acid supplementation (e.g., ALA) and some people believe (and promote the idea that) ALA has the ability to inhibit cancer, the evidence on the whole is inconclusive to date and several studies have shown conflicting results (1). Similiarly, with GLA, while there have been some interesting in vitro studies suggesting GLA can slow/prevent cancer growth and even perhaps help increase the efficacy of some cancer drugs, the evidence that GLA will produce similar results in humans is lacking (2).
We strongly suggest/urge that you consult with your physician on ways to decrease your risk of cancer - including lifestyle choices you can make as well as regular screening strategies/approaches (please do be diligent on this - as someone who lost his grandmother at a very young age to breast cancer I only wish she had access to the same screening technology and knowledge that we have today). We also urge you to urge your friends to do likewise!
Why do you use parabens?
Parabens have been the subject of a lot of discussion (with respect to the issue of these compounds being a potential carcinogen) and It seems that a small sample size study has been co-opted and woven into a slick marketing narrative (indeed, some major companies promote some of their products as free of "dangerous" parabens while other products they offer contain them). The consensus on this topic in the medical research community is that parabens are generally recognized as safe and indeed other sources in the environment and diet have much more potential for carcinogenic activity (including a good amount of the food you eat).
There has not been a causality link between cancer and parabens and there is a lot more study that needs to be done on that point - we would refer you to Dr. Weil's site: http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/id/QAA333875.
The most recent study we are aware of is in Skin Therapy Letters (2013 Feb;18(2):5-7 The health controversies of parabens. by Kirchhof MG, de Gannes GC.) which says in it's abstract:
"... studies investigating the health effects of parabens are conflicting. At this point, there is an insufficient amount of data suggesting serious consequences from paraben use and exposure to warrant drastic avoidance measures or government regulations."
Previously, there was also this fairly recent study in the European Journal of Dermatology (2012 Nov-Dec;22(6):723-7. doi: 10.1684/ejd.2012.1835. Parabens: a real hazard or a scare story? Castelain F, Castelain M.) which states in it's abstract:
"Parabens ... have been the target of a media smear campaign since 2005. Several studies have failed to formally prove their alleged responsibility in the occurrence of breast cancer. At recommended concentrations, methyl and ethyl parabens have no hormonal effect in humans. ... Parabens are well-known for having weak sensitising properties and for their absence of toxicity whereas new substitution products, not as well-known, may lead to new cases of contact allergy."
As well as this study in Critical Reviews in Toxicology (2010 Nov;40 Suppl 3:1-30, Witorsch RJ, Thomas JA), which states: "evidence of paraben-induced developmental and reproductive toxicity in vivo lacks consistency and physiological coherence"
And going back a bit further to 2008, a study in the Bulletin of Cancer (2008 Sep;95(9):871-80) stated in it's title: "The use of deodorants/antiperspirants does not constitute a risk factor for breast cancer".
We have consulted with several cancer experts (on of the reasons we founded the company was to help fund our cancer research - so we know a lot of these folks) on this point and they also saw no cause for alarm - and indeed there are issues with the potential alternatives being employed.
All of that said, we continue to research and are always looking for ways to make ABT more effective and better on every dimension.
