Science Proves It. But Our Foremothers Already Knew It.
Historically fenugreek and other herbal remedies (such as blessed thistle and anise) have been used around the world by millions of women to improve breast milk production.* It has been recognized that fenugreek and blessed thistle work better when taken together. Now we've combined fenugreek and blessed thistle with shatavari and anise for the most powerful Milkflow formula yet.
Fenugreek, or Trigonella foenum-graecum (try saying that three times fast), is a plant from India and the Mediterranean region. The seeds are the part of the plant most useful for increasing milk production.* Fenugreek has been given the FDA's GRAS designation (Generally Regarded As Safe). Studies show that it has no adverse effects and helps to boost a mother's milk production and infant weight gain.*
A recent clinical trial showed just how helpful fenugreek can be. 78 breastfeeding mothers and their babies, newborn to 4 months old, were divided into two groups. One group received fenugreek several times daily; the other group received a placebo. Before the trial began, there were no significant differences in the babies' weight, head circumference, and the number of wet and dirty diapers. After a one-month trial, however, the group receiving fenugreek demonstrated greater breast milk sufficiency. The babies whose mothers used fenugreek weighed more, had greater head circumferences, and more wet and dirty diapers (indicating more breast milk consumption).
Milkflow Max also includes shatavari, an ayurvedic herb that supports a woman's reproductive system and lactation. Shatavari is also known for its ability to aid in digestion for both mother and baby. To ensure proper absorption (for you) and digestion (for both you and your baby), Milkflow Max uses a proprietary blend of micronized botanicals ginger, turmeric, garlic, cinnamon, and fennel.
Real, Plant-based Ingredients
The ingredients in Milkflow Max capsules are about as natural as they come. The capsules contains four herbs known to help with milk supply: fenugreek, shatavari, blessed thistle, and anise.* A proprietary blend of 5 more botanicals provides lactation and digestive support.
What is fenugreek?
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.
I've heard fenugreek gives off a maple syrup odor, is that true?
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!
What is shatavari?
Shatavari is an ayurvedic herb that not only acts as a galactagogue (to support milk production), it also helps support a woman's reproductive system throughout her life. Shatavari also supports optimal digestion for both mom and baby.
What is blessed thistle?
Blessed thistle is a plant found in the Mediterranean region of the world and is related to asters and daisies. It many places, it's considered a noxious weed. (Fortunately, we know better!)
Is there a difference between blessed thistle and milk thistle?
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.
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. Milk thistle is known for its liver-protective qualities and is used to treat liver and gallbladder problems.
What is the difference between Milkflow Fenugreek + Blessed Thistle Capsules and Milkflow Max Capsules?
Milkflow Fenugreek + Blessed Thistle Capsules are our original capsule formula and are an easy way to get your fenugreek. The suggested daily dose starts at two capsules. For moms who want a more potent fenugreek formula, Milkflow Max Capsules include an additional galactagogue, shatavari, which also supports healthy digestion. In addition, Milkflow Max capsules contain a digestion-enhancing blend of botanicals (ginger, turmeric, garlic, cinnamon, and fennel). The suggested daily dose starts at one capsule.
Why is digestive support included in a breast milk formula?
In order for herbal galactagogues (or any nutrients) to work well, they have to be absorbed properly. Some moms find that they need extra support to ensure this happens. Your body also needs a healthy, nutrient-rich diet to make quality milk for your baby. The shatavari along with the botanical blend (ginger, turmeric, garlic, cinnamon, and fennel) help your body to absorb all nutrients optimally, to help you produce plenty of high quality milk.
Can I take Milkflow Max capsules plus use the Milkflow drink mix?
Yes, but while you're using capsules, limit the Milkflow drink to once daily.
When should I start taking a Milkflow product?
Take it any time you want to boost breast milk production after your baby is born. (Do not take this product during pregnancy.)
How long does it take for Milkflow Max Capsules to work?
Metabolisms vary but you may see a difference within the first few days.
