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!
Blessed thistle is a plant found in the Mediterranean region of the world and is related to asters and daisies. Blessed thistle is recognized for its ability to help increase breast milk production.
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 and homeopathy. The blooms of the milk thistle plant are purple. While milk thistle originated in Europe, it is now found throughout North America. The leaves and stems contain milky white sap. The seeds contain active beneficial compounds and are used to create extracts and powders. Blessed thistle is a known galactagogue, recognized for its ability to help increase breast milk production.
The drink mix, which comes in four flavors (Berry, Sugar Free Berry, Chocolate, and Chai), is a convenient way to get your fenugreek while staying hydrated. For days when you are on the go and don’t have access to a glass of water (or milk, for the chocolate and chai flavors), Milkflow concentrated capsules are an easy way to get your fenugreek.
Take it any time you want to boost breast milk production after your baby is born. (Do not take this product during pregnancy.)
