PRECIOUS MOMMY NURSING TEA
A full pound of Nurturing Mommy Nursing tea is made of an exclusive blend of the following herbs:
- Fennel Seed: increases breast milk production
while helping to alleviate gas in both mother and baby. Helps to soothe
indigestion and heartburn, aids in bowel movements and prevents any
associated cramping or griping. Helps soothe colic in babies (mom
ingests tea and passes it to the baby via breast milk).
- Fenugreek : Mothers generally notice an increase in production 24-72 hours after starting the herb, but it can take two weeks for others to see a change.
- Goat's Rue : one of the best herbs for
increasing milk production. One of the references I have states that
Goat’s Rue can increase production by 50%!
- Red Raspberry : Rich in vitamin C, vitamin E
and the easily assimilated calcium and iron. It also includes vitamins A
and B complex and many minerals, including phosphorus and potassium. It
reduces pain during labor and after birth by toning the muscles of the
uterus used during labor. Its high mineral content assists in production
of good quality milk. It is known as the strengthener of the entire
female reproductive system and is also one of the “nourishing” herbs,
which are critical at a time when a mother is under the stress of
nursing a newborn baby coupled with birth, and loss of sleep. An
absolute must before during and after pregnancy.
- Nettle Leaf : Contains nearly every vitamin and
mineral necessary for human growth and health. Abundant in vitamins A,
C, D, and K, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, iron, and sulfur. Nettle
contains more chlorophyll than any other herb, which is important to
purify and clean the blood, guards against anemia, helps gently relieve
constipation, and is extremely nutritious. Nourishes and strengthens
kidneys so as to help facilitate the increased demands of the mother’s
blood cleansing during pregnancy. Eases leg cramps and other muscle
spasms and pain due to the high calcium content. (Nettle and Raspberry
Leaf contain calcium in its most absorbable form. Spinach, chocolate,
rhubarb, and brewers yeast will interfere with the absorption of calcium
and calcium supplements made of bone meal and oyster shell should be
avoided as they are not easily absorbed in the body and they have been
shown to contain high levels of lead, mercury, cadmium, and other toxic
metals.) Nettle prevents hemorrhage due to its high vitamin K content,
and its astringency and nourishing action helps to reduce hemorrhoids by
tightening and strengthening blood vessels. It also will increase the
richness and amount of breast milk.
- Alfalfa: Is rich in minerals and helps to make
you a relaxed and healthy mother. It is known as a “super food” because
it has a significant source of protein and ten different vitamins
including A, C, D, B2, niacin, B6, G and E. It is extremely high in
chlorophyll, which helps with blood oxygenation and helps to correct
constipation. It also contains the following minerals: calcium,
phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, iron and trace minerals. Because it is
high in calcium and iron it is extremely important during pregnancy. It
is also high in Vitamin K, which is the body’s blood clotting agent,
and a mother needs this to eliminate hemorrhage. It is contains eight
enzymes and enzymes help the body to assimilate foods. In addition to
all its nutritive benefits, it also helps to increase the richness and
amount of breast milk.
- Chamomile: relaxing, soothing and calming to
the entire system. Helps with digestion and nausea, and is also high in
calcium. The essential oil of chamomile is anti-inflammatory in nature
and is wonderful in healing swellings, achy joints and other
inflammations. Rosemary Gladstar states “This delicate, gentle flower is
a must for pregnant (and nursing) women. Its sunny disposition is
helpful for lifting the spirits and its calming relaxing attributes are
very soothing to the soul.”
- Blessed Thistle : This herb is famous for its
ability to increase milk supply rapidly and consistently. It is also
said to remove the common depression feelings, known as post-partum
depression, that often face mother’s after childbirth. It is the most
widely recommended herb for its ability to stimulate milk flow to
fulfill your baby’s growing needs and aids weary moms in their full
recovery after birth.
You may choose to add one of 3 different flavors to your tea or leave the flavor out altogether.
Lucy's Garden recommends drinking this nursing tea daily from the
birth of your baby until your milk supply is well established (usually
around 6 months) and can be enjoyed anytime you feel your milk
production needs a boost. Only the finest and freshest herbs are used
when making our Nurturing Mommy Tea!
