Fenugreek: Is it Safe to Use When Breastfeeding?

Fenugreek, Methi, Fresh, Green, Indian

Fenugreek is an annual plant similar to the clover family of plants and is commonly used as a culinary and medicinal ingredient in the Indian subcontinent since ancient times. Naturally, the seeds have a bitter and nutty taste.

For centuries, people in India and China have used fenugreek as an herb (fresh and dried leaves), as seeds, and micro-greens for culinary purposes. It has been touted as an effective herb for boosting milk supply and its added benefits of lowering blood sugar naturally. In addition, there has been talks of fenugreek being an effective remedy for managing skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis.

Benefits of Consuming Fenugreek: 

In addition to fenugreek's important role in various cuisines, its medicinal benefits are just as incredible. Consumption has been shown to:

  • Increase milk supply during breastfeeding
  • Relieve menstrual cramping
  • Manage diabetes by lowering blood sugar
  • Raise testosterone levels

As with any herb, there may be possible side effects to Fenugreek. Even though our supplements are naturally allergy-friendly, it is always best to consult with your physician before consuming any supplement post-pregnancy. Please do not consume any supplement before talking to your doctor.

Who Should Take Fenugreek?

New, lactating mothers can largely benefit from this natural herb remedy to boost milk production. Fenugreek is a natural stimulant that mimics estrogen-like properties for opening up milk ducts and increasing milk supply.
