About Our Ingredients
The herbs in this blend have been used traditionally to support lactation and nursing mothers.
Fenugreek: Linked in small scale studies to increasing the volume of milk supply and the fat content of breast milk in lactating mothers
Fennel: research has shown that fennel can help to support a healthy milk supply
Aniseed: Used for millennia as a natural support to milk supply. It is also a source of iron, magnesium, potassium and calcium
Nettle: Anecdotal evidence for hundreds of years suggests that nettle can support milk supply, and help to naturally boost your immune system
How many cups should I have a day?
We recommend having up to 3-4 cups a day. Combine this with pumping to establish your milk supply. NHS guidelines recommend a maximum 4 cups of any one herbal tea a day. *The impact of natural herbs will vary person to person.
Why are these herbs used to support my milk flow?
Fenugreek, fennel, aniseed, and even oats, are all galactagogues, which have all been used historically to support breastfeeding. No one 100% knows why, but lab studies link an active component - diosgenin, to help breastfeeding.
What is the research behind the blend?
Whilst there is extremely limited standardised and empirical evidence into the efficacy of herbs in helping lactation and milk supply, some key herbs have been used for centuries to assist women who are struggling, especially in India and the Middle East. Fennel and Fenugreek in particular have been used by breastfeeding women for hundreds of years to increase milk supply. The seeds contain phytoestogens which mimic your female hormone, oestrogen. Nettle and anise have also been linked to helping breast milk, but the research is more limited here. Read a more in depth summary of research here.
How to brew?
Each of our packs has simple instructions on it, but essentially you should use 1 tea bag per person, and freshly boiled water for all except Newborn Wonder. This tea works best with 80 degree water (let your kettle sit for 5 minutes with the lid open after boiling). Brew for 3-5 minutes depending on how strong you like it.
