What is shatavari?
Shatavari is an ayurvedic (ancient holistic Indian healing system) herb that acts as a natural galactagogue (aka breast milk booster) and helps support a woman's reproductive system and balance hormones throughout her life. Shatavari also promotes optimal digestion for both mom and baby.*
What is the difference between UpSpring Milkflow Shatavari Capsules and UpSpring Milkflow Max Fenugreek + Shatavari Capsules?
Milkflow Max Fenugreek + Shatavari Capsules contain a proprietary blend of four herbs (as opposed to one) known to help with milk supply: fenugreek, anise, blessed thistle, AND shatavari.
Milkflow Shatavari Capsules contain a single, concentrated breast milk boosting herb: shatavari. This product is for the moms out there who only want shatavari, and shatavari alone. It also gives you the option to mix and match herbal lactation supplements and take only the ones that are most effective for your body! Milkflow Shatavari Capsules also contain a bonus digestive aid to help soothe any potential tummy upset. (surprise!)
Why is digestive support included in a breastmilk formula?
In order for herbal galactagogues (or any nutrients) to work well, they have to be absorbed properly. Some moms find that they need extra support to ensure this happens. Your body also needs a healthy, nutrient-rich diet to make quality milk for your baby. The botanical digestive blend (ginger root, anise seed, orange peel, and lemon balm leaf) helps your body to absorb all nutrients optimally, to in turn help you produce plentiful amounts of high quality milk.
When should I start taking a Milkflow product?
Take it anytime you want to boost breast milk production after your baby is born.
How long does it take for Milkflow Shatavari Capsules to work?
Metabolisms vary but you may see a difference within the first week.*
Can I take Milkflow Shatavari Capsules alongside other Milkflow products?
Yes. The herbs in each of our Milkflow
products act a little bit differently, so there is no reason why they can’t be used together! If you have any questions always be sure to consult a healthcare professional.
