Galactogogue

Quote:
A galactagogue is anything that excites lactation. In otherwords any thing that increases milk production. In humans common galactagogues are: caffiene, hops, fenugreek, fennel seed, blessed thistle, domperidone, alfalfa.


Tidak mudah nak menyusukan anak sebenarnya. Lebih-lebih lagi bagi ibu-ibu yang bekerja. Susu perlu diperah untuk menggalakkan stimulasi dan dalam memastikan kualiti susu adalah tinggi, si ibu perlu mengambil supplements tertentu (susu yang khasiat & kesihatan ibu terjamin).

Penghasilan susu dipengaruhi oleh hormon prolaktin, di mana komposisi hormon ini akan berkurang di dalam badan apabila si anak semakin membesar atau kurangnya stimulasi terhadap keperluan susu itu sendiri.

Therefore, in order to maintain my milk supply, I have to consume galactogogues. Here are few of remedies that I take:
1) Fenugreek capsule from GNC
2) Salmon Oil from GNC
3) Calcimate Plus from GNC
4) Shatavari from Himalaya
5) Prenatal with Iron from GNC
6) Scott Emulsion
7) Alfalfa wheatgrass drink



Kalau perasan from the lists, most of the products are from GNC, sebabnya Walid adalah ahli so boleh dapat member price which is cheaper from actual. Scoot Emulsion was bought for Zahra but she refused to take it, so Ummi have to be the rubbish bin. Alfalfa drinks tu nampak je horror but rasa dia sedap jugak. And since I’m diagnosed with this ‘penyakit buatan orang’ (heheheh) I stop consume the fenugreek and shatavari, will continue to eat the stuffs after delivery.
