Organic Shatavari

Benefits:
  • Supports a healthy hormone balance
  • Supports the female reproductive system
  • Galactagogue
Source: In 2011, the Iranian Journal of Pharmaceutical Research concluded that among the 60 subjects studied, there was a greater than three-fold average increase in the prolactin hormone level (the hormone responsible for milk production) among the women who took Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus Willd), compared with the control group.

Turmeric

Benefits:
  • Acts as an anti-inflammatory
  • Promotes good mood
  • Galactagogue
Source:In 2011, The Iranian Journal of Pharmaceutical Research concluded they saw more than three-fold increase in the prolactin hormone level( hormone responsible for milk production) of the 60 subjects who took Shatavari(Asparagus racemosus Willd) in their research group as compared to their control group.

Fenugreek

Benefits:
  • Galactagogue

Note: When used in culinary doses, such as the amount contained in Boobie Bar®, fenugreek does not affect a woman’s blood-sugar or thyroid levels.

Spices

Benefits:
  • Used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for their strengthening, cleansing and warming action for stagnation of the Qi (aka flow) of milk
Source: TCM states: Low milk supply is due to insufficient Qi and blood supply of the mother and is related to her body constitution. Stagnation of milk prevents milk from moving down the ducts and out of the nipple.

Flaxseed

Benefits:
  • Is a good source of omega 3’s
  • provides hormone support
  • Is high in fiber
  • Galactagogue

Coconut Oil

Benefits:
  • Is a good source of HDL (“good”) cholesterol
  • Is high in lauric acid*
  • Aids with healthy weight management
  • Is used to increase lauric acid in breast milk
*Source: An American Journal of Clinical Nutrition study concluded that when a lactating woman adds foods rich in lauric acid (an essential fatty acid found in coconut oil) to her diet, the amount of lauric acid available in her breast milk increases substantially, to levels on average three times higher than the original level.

Oats

Benefits:
  • Are rich in fiber
  • Are rich in zinc*
  • Lower “bad” cholesterol
  • Galactagogue
*Source: Cellular and Molecular Physiology researchers from Penn State’s College of Medicine concluded that zinc levels in breast milk may be able to serve as an indicator of breast function during lactation, and suggest that by identifying women with abnormally low levels of zinc in breast milk, they may be able to more quickly recognize mothers who might have trouble breastfeeding.
