Does Lactation/Breastfeeding Tea Actually Work?

Lactation tea made with an amazing blend of herbs is a popular choice for mums during their post-partum period to increase milk supply. This herbal tea uses time old herbs known for boosting lactation to make sure your baby is satisfied and there is plenty of milk produced. 

Is Lactation Tea Effective?

The best method to ensure a steady supply of breastmilk is always at the forefront of mums' minds. Breastfeeding tea can be a helpful way to deal with any breastfeeding challenges and allow your body to produce more milk naturally. 

How effective is lactation tea? That is the big question, isn't it? Herbs are not new when it comes to supporting lactation; they have been used throughout history. These natural ingredients, including Fenugreek Seed, Fennel Seed, Red Raspberry LeafStinging Nettle Leaf support and enhance breast milk production.

What is Lactation Tea Made of?

Obviously, each blend will have some differences, however, Yo Mama Lactation Tea, offers a caffeine-free, hand-blended organic lactation tea that is gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free.

Tea for lactation contains these ingredients:

– Fenugreek Seed- is a well-known natural galactagogue, which means the herb increases breast milk production in lactating mothers. Seeds and leaves of fenugreek have been used by lactating mothers to boost breast milk supply for hundreds of years.

- Fennel Seed- 
It is another well-known herbal galactagogue (a substance that helps in increasing breastmilk supply) and has been used to increase the supply of milk in nursing women for centuries. A galactagogue is a food source that aids in increasing the milk supply of nursing mothers. The reason that fennel is considered to be one, is that it has phytoestrogens, which is similar to the oestrogen hormone that is naturally formed by the human body. Women have been using this herb for this very purpose for such a long time, and it has shown results for most women.

-  Stinging Nettle Leaf  Using nettle in lactation tea boosts energy after childbirth and supports the body as lactation begins, while also nourishing and balancing. Activating the nerves in the nipple and promoting the flow of breastmilk are the two effects of the herb.

- Red Raspberry Leaf-  is of great benefit after giving birth because it helps the uterus return to its pre-birth size, and it increases the amount of breast milk produced. Since this herbal tea is a powerhouse of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, it also increases the quality of breast milk.

Combining organic and herbal ingredients creates a lactation tea that helps to increase breastmilk production in mothers.
