Fenugreek is one of the most effective herbs for increasing breastmilk production. Herb Lore offers Fenugreek in capsule or tincture (liquid extract) form.
With Herb Lore Fenugreek, you should see results in 12-24 hours. If this amount is not adequate, you may safely increase the dose until you find the right amount that works for you. If you find that you've become overly full or engorged, you will want to decrease the amount.Your dosage may be further tailored to your needs by increasing the dose to support your typical low production time, and lowering the dose with regard to fuller times.
Fenugreek is a very safe herb (it is actually a cooking spice), even when taken in large amounts. it works to stimulate body secretions - breastmilk being one of them. You will notice a maple syrup-type smell coming from your perspiration when using Fenugreek. This is an indication that the herb is active in your system. The only side effect of this herb is that in a low percentage of people, it can cause gas in the mother and/or baby. If this is a problem for you or your baby, there are a number of options to help counteract the gas.
