What are galactagogues:

What are galactagogues

Galactagogues can be medications, herbs, foods, or supplements that help support and increase milk production. They are thought to be especially helpful for anyone struggling with milk production. While galactagogues alone won’t boost milk supply, some people do find them to be helpful and enjoy adding them to their diet. A few  galactagogues are Brewer’s yeast, oats, ginger, fennel, and dark leafy greens, among others. It is important to note, though, that there’s only anecdotal (no medical evidence) that galactagogues are truly effective.
