Breastfeeding Tea Health Benefits – How can this blend help improve lactation?
Our Mother Nurture Tea was designed with breastfeeding mothers in mind. The carefully selected herbs are traditionally used to maintain a healthy breast milk supply, support lactation and ease digestion for both mother and baby.
The slightly bitter tasting plant acts as a galactagogue and hypoglycaemic. It is used to treat poor lactation and diabetes in alternative medicine.
Naturally packed with anethole and quercetin glucosides, fennel has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and galactagogue properties. It is traditionally used to treat intestinal colic, pharyngitis and poor lactation.
Star Anise acts as a stimulant and is diuretic as well as carminative. The herb helps improve digestion, alleviate cramps and reduce nausea. Consuming tea containing star anise after meals helps treat digestive ailments such as bloating, gas, indigestion and constipation.
Full of alkaloids and steroidal lactones, withania (also known as ashwaghanda) has adaptogen, tonic and anti-inflammatory actions. It is traditionally used to treat nervous exhaustion, anaemia and physcial weakness.
Lemon balm is not only useful for people suffering from insomnia, it is also used for treating anxiety, indigestion and reducing stress.
This breastfeeding tea is also available in our Bud, Blossom & Bloom Gift Box for mothers-to-be.
