How Goat's Rue Can Support Your Milk Supply

purple flowers with green leaves

Goat’s Rue is a galactagogue type of plant similar in nature to Fenugreek, Milk Thistle, Ginger, and Fennel. This perennial herb has been used by women in Europe over several generations to support milk production in new, lactating mothers.

Traditionally, the Europeans utilized the dried leaves of this plant to boost milk production in cows and goats in a natural way. Over time, many European countries have adopted this plant into the diet of new breastfeeding mothers to increase the supply of mother’s milk. In addition, Goat’s Rue is known for its other benefits and possibly help in lowering blood sugar, managing diabetes, promoting digestion, and protecting the liver and pancreas.

Who Should Take Goat's Rue? 

Goat’s Rue is typically used to boost milk production in lactating mothers. This herb can be consumed, as directed by a physician, by mothers who wish to increase their milk supply, and by people with a requirement to lower blood sugar naturally.

Goat's Rue and Milk Supply

Goat’s Rue is a natural galactagogue that has a lactogenic effect when consumed. The phytoestrogens occurring in the plant mimic the part of estrogen by binding to the estrogen receptors resulting in an increased concentration of prolactin, a hormone responsible for the secretion of milk in lactating mothers.

Side Effects and Precautions

Goat’s Rue is considered safe to consume in capsule form or as dried leaves to make tea. It is not advised to consume the leaves of a fresh goat’s rue plant.

As with any plant/herb, allergic reactions may occur when consuming Goat’s Rue.

It is advisable to avoid consuming this herb if there is a history of allergic reactions to peanuts, soy, and Fenugreek. Stop consuming the herb if the milk supply is in abundance. Consult with your physician before consuming Goat's Rue or any supplement for lactation purposes.
