Fenugreek, or trigonella foenum-graecum, is a plant from India and the Mediterranean. It has been used by generations of women to promote breast milk production.
The fenugreek herb has a natural maple scent. When taking a fenugreek supplement, a maple syrup odor may occur in perspiration or urine. But don’t worry – the scent does not need to be present for Milkflow to be working!

Yes! While both plants are in the aster family, they are distinct from each other. Blessed thistle has yellow flowers surrounded by spiny leaves. It grows primarily in the Mediterranean region from Southern Europe to North Africa and in Western Asia. Flowers, leaves, stems and roots have been used in folk medicine, homeopathy, and, more recently, in pharmaceuticals. Blessed Thistle is a known galactagogue, recognized for its ability to help increase breast milk production. Milk thistle is known for its liver-protective qualities and is used to treat liver and gallbladder problems.
Take it any time you want to boost breast milk production after your baby is born. (Do not take this product during pregnancy.)
