Fusion Breastfeeding Tonic contains four herbs with a long history of traditional use in Western Herbal medicine to help support the emotional and mental wellbeing of breastfeeding mothers.
Goat’s rue is used to promote lactation in traditional Western herbal medicine. Its common name is a reference to the observation in medieval times that consuming it increased milk production in goats, and its botanical name Galega officinalis is thought to be derived from the Greek word for milk (gala).
Based on its use in traditional Western herbal medicine, Vervain increases breast milk production and has additional benefits for calming the mind and nervous system, helping to maintain mental and emotional wellbeing, supporting healthy moods, and relieving symptoms of mild anxiety.
Fenugreek improves breast milk production and is also suitable to use during breastfeeding to promote healthy digestion, relieve symptoms of indigestion, soothe irritated tissues, and as a nutritive tonic that aids recovery after illness, based on its use in traditional Western herbal medicine.
Shatavari is regarded as a rasayana or rejuvenating tonic in Ayurvedic medicine, where it’s traditionally been used by women wishing to improve breast milk production for hundreds of years, and is also taken to decrease symptoms of indigestion.
Breastfeeding mothers may also like to consider taking Fusion OceanPure Fish Oil, a rich source of DHA, which is essential for infants’ visual and cognitive development, and Fusion Mum-to-be Multi, which supports the increased nutritional needs of breastfeeding women.
