An alcohol free liquid concentrate in vegetarian capsules. Specially formulated at the request of lactation consultants, this blend of More Milk Plus with Goat's Rue helps women with special needs -- such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), breast reduction surgery and adoptive moms -- to build mammary tissue as well as to safely and effectively increase breast milk. This formula is also helpful for women who did not see an increase in their breast size during pregnancy. This product does not contain any milk, dairy, soy, egg, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, or gluten.
Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule 4 times per day. Women over 175 lbs take 2 capsules 3 times per day. May be taken with 1-2 oz. of liquid. Avoid additional liquids 20 minutes before and after each dose.
- Goat's Rue - Galega officinalis
- Goat's Rue grows 2-3 feet tall with branching stems and oval, opposite leaves. The long flower stalk produces many light purple to pink flowers similar to those in the pea family. The leaves stimulate development of mammary tissue, and it is one of the most potent herbs to increase breast milk. Goat's Rue is also used to increase breast size in non-lactating women. It also increases sweating to bring down a fever. Because it can lower blood sugar levels, it can be useful for diabetics who are not on insulin, or have an effect on the amount of insulin needed.
- Fenugreek seed - Trigonella foenum-graecum
- Fenugreek is an annual that grows 12-18" high with branched, trifoliate leaves. Fenugreek is in the legume family as are peanuts and garden peas. It produces "pea pods" that contain yellow- brown seeds. These seeds are mucilaginous when cooked and smell like maple syrup. Fenugreek is used to flavor imitation maple syrup. Externally, they can be used as a poultice on wounds and sores. Drinking tea made with the seeds aids digestion, and gargling with the tea relieves a sore throat. The seeds are also known for increasing breast milk. Fenugreek is a popular spice in East Indian cooking. Not for use during pregnancy; can reduce blood sugar levels.
- Blessed Thistle - Cnicus benedictus
- Blessed Thistle has fuzzy leaves and stems with yellow flowers. It is a "bitter" that aids digestion and works on a congested liver. It increases breast milk and is an emotional ally to uplift spirits. Not for use during pregnancy.
- Nettle leaf - Urtica dioica
- Nettle has dark green serrated leaves and short hairs that cause burning and blistering when touched. It grows in moist soil usually near streams and ditches. Even though it may sting when gathered without gloves, it is an excellent spring green in teas and meals, but don't eat it uncooked. It makes a wonderful substitute for spinach in any dish and an excellent lasagna filling. Nettle is an herb worth using on a regular basis. This spring tonic is loaded with nutrition and strengthens many body systems. Nettle is a rich source of iron, calcium and folic acid, and supports the kidney and adrenals. It helps clear up anemia, skin problems, and increases breast milk. A nettle hair rinse stimulates growth and removes dandruff.
- Fennel seed - Foeniculum vulgare
- Fennel is a licorice flavored, feathery, aromatic herb. It grows to be several feet tall with umbels of small, yellow flowers that look very similar to a dill plant. This digestive herb relieves heartburn, gas, colic, and an upset stomach. The seeds can be chewed to sweeten breath and help a toothache, and a gargle will relieve a sore throat. Fennel also increases breast milk. To use as a compress, put crushed seeds in hot water for relief of swollen, tender, nursing breasts.

I bought this product after already having some issues with Breast feeding. My Little one would start out gulping and then get frustrated and just give up. So the lactation consultant recomended I try this product, and unfortunatly for me, it did not help. I do think it helped me keep producing milk after it probably would have dried up, but I was never able to fully nurse my baby. I think maybe if I had started earlier it may have helped. ALso I would be interested if I could take this before I gave birth while I was still pregnant? Not saying this won't work for you. I have PCOS and had a Csection both of which can make breast feeding more difficult. Still greatfull to be able to breast feed her as long as I did, even if it was only for a few days.
