The Milky Way
Boosts milk production ༚ increases prolactin levels ༚ soothing the nervous system ༚ remedy for gassy and colicky babies ༚ relaxing
This double-duty formula combines the milk boosting galactagogues with calming nervines to relax both mama and baby. Perfect for late afternoon and evening when milk supply is lower and baby is fussy
Alfalfa & Blessed thistle: These time honored herbs provide the base for our lactation formula. Each is an effective milk booster on its own, but together they offer even better results.
Shatavari: This root has a long history of use as a galactagogue in the centuries old Ayurvedic tradition. Modern studies show that it increases prolactin levels in nursing mothers.
Fennel & Chamomile: Soothing to the nervous system as well as the digestive tract. This combination is also a classic remedy for gassy, colicky babies, who get a small dose through mom’s milk.
Blue Vervain: Eases tension and tightness held in the shoulders- a common issue for nursing moms- and helps to encourage the letdown reflex.
Hops: There is merit to the old wives tale about the positive benefits of beer for breastfeeding moms! In part due to hops, which boosts milk supply, and induces a sense of relaxation by increasing levels of the neurotransmitter, GABA
