    BENEFITS


    Harnessing the power of a herbal superfood blend, formulated by our founder Cindy, these Milk Machine capsules are designed to increase milk supply.

     

    We combined Moringa, Spirulina, Blessed Thistle, Alfalfa, Fennel and Nettle into this convenient capsule.

    Ingredients


    Moringa Leaf

    A complete source of plant protein with all 9 essential amino acids, high in fiber and contains exceptionally high levels of antioxidants. All of these nutrients but particularly protein, iron, vitamin K and calcium are needed in good milk supply.

     

    Learn more.

    Spirulina

    The plant’s chemical makeup is 65% amino acids, including the essential fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). The high concentration of amino acids has made spirulina a popular nutritional supplement for those who are unable to obtain sufficient calories and protein through diet alone.

     

    Learn more.

    Blessed Thistle

    Blessed thistle has been revered since the Middle Ages in Europe for its use as a digestive stimulant and nutritive tonic. Blessed thistle works effectively when paired with other galactagogues.

    Alfalfa

    Alfalfa, also called lucerne and called Medicago sativa in binomial nomenclature, is a perennial flowering plant in the legume family Fabaceae. It is cultivated as an important forage crop in many countries around the world. It has long been prized for its superior content of vitamins, minerals and protein.

    Nettle Leaf

    Recognized for its tonic and nutritional value. It is rich in vitamins and minerals and has traditionally been used primarily in the spring time to stimulate slow winter blood. Nettle is a popular tonic used by many herbalists for treating iron deficiency, which improves milk supply.

    Frequently Asked Questions


    When should I use this product?

    Before using any supplements for lactation, we always recommend working with a lactation consultant first for support and guidance. This product is intended for postpartum use only. We recommend using supplements before 4wks postpartum with recommendations from a lactation consultant.  

    Who is this product intended for?

    This product is for anyone person that is lactating, breastfeeding or pumping regardless of baby's age.

    How much should I take?

    We recommend starting with 2 capsules three times a day. If after the fourth day you don't see results, we suggest increasing to 3 capsules three times a day. If your baby is younger than 3 months, they are often more sensitive (i.e. supplements, dairy, caffeine) to things in your diet. We suggest starting at 1 capsule three times a day for 3 days and then increasing the dose if your baby can tolerate it.

    How long will this last?

    How long a jar will last depends on your daily dosage.

    A 60 count jar will last 10 days if you take 6 capsules per day.
    A 120 count jar will last 20 days if you take 6 capsules per day.
    A 250 count jar will last 41 days if you take 6 capsules per day.

    When can I expect results?

    The timeframe to see results varies widely, some customers see them in less than 24hrs and some customers may take up 10 days. If the supply issue is glandular related, it may take 3-4wks of consistent use to see results.

     

    However most customers notice a difference within 7 days. If you are nursing, best way to measure results is baby baby’s weight gain and wet diaper output. Experiences others have had are: let down quicker, let down length, fullness of breast, pumping output increase, breastmilk composition change (i.e. hindmilk increase), baby nurses longer and seems more satisfied. Some customers may experience one or many of these things.

    Is this product vegan?

    This product is 100% plant-based. It contains no animal derived ingredients.

    Are there any side-effects?

    Common side effects when taking dietary supplements are occasional upset stomach or indigestion, this can occur with any supplement or vitamin. If you have a sensitive digestive system, we recommend taking supplements with or after a meal. If you are unknowingly adverse to an ingredient – you could develop topical hives/rash, if this should occur please take a picture of rash, contact us and discontinue use of the product. Reported side effects are rare, however some other side effects are in increase in bowel movements, nausea, change in bowel movement color/consistency for either mom or baby. Additionally, if you experience a headache it’s often a symptom of dehydration especially when lactating. However if headache continues after hydrating well discontinue use of product and contact us. Also if you should notice any indigestion in your baby it could be an indirect result of supplements when your supply is increasing. When your supply is increasing you may experience overactive letdown, which can contribute to gassy & fussiness. You can read more about overactive letdown here and here.

    Can I combine lactation blends?

    If you have tried one or more blends and are interested in combining products to see if it will give you better results you may absolutely do so.

    Some customers alternate blends daily. For example, some customers have combined products in the following ways:  

    a) Blend A in the morning (3 capsules), Blend B in the afternoon (3 capsules), Blend A and B in the evening(2-4 capsules).

    b) Blend A & B three times during the day, 2-4 capsules total each dose.

    c) Blend A on Monday, Blend B Tuesday, Blend A Wednesday, Blend B Thursday, etc.

    Should I take this with or without food?

    ​Ideally for absorption, it’s advised to take them on an empty stomach. However not everyone can tolerate taking supplements or vitamins on an empty stomach, so if you need to take them with a meal or a drink that is fine. If you can take them on an empty stomach, great!

    Where is your Spirulina harvested?

    All of our Spirulina is now pond harvested – meaning is you suffer from a shellfish allergy, our Spirulina is now safe for you to consume.

    Is this for long-term or short-term use?

    These supplements can be used both short-term and long-term.

     

    Some circumstances when customers use these supplements short-term are:

    During growth baby spurts.

    To recover from maternal illness, i.e a cold or mastitis.

    Low supply due to temporarily hormonal dip related to menstrual cycle, we also suggest taking a calcium magnesium supplement during your menstrual cycle as it can help with the increase in estrogen that decreases milk production.

    During times of stress that can negatively impact supply.

    Returning to work or school.

    •  

    Some circumstances when customers use these supplements long-term are:

    • When relactating after an interruption in breastfeeding or pumping, or inducing lactation.
    • When diagnosed with IGT (insufficient glandular tissue).
    • Chronic low supply due to hormonal imbalances (i.e. thyroid, PCOS).
    • Low supply related to insulin resistance.

    Has this product been tested?

    All our ingredients are tested for heavy metals and microbiological contaminants. It contains no heavy metals.

    How do I transition from another product?

    If you are currently taking another product and want to switch from that brand to ours, if you have chronic low supply we do not suggest abruptly stoping a product and starting another as it may cause your supply dip. We do suggest continuing to take the other brand for 3 days after you have started one of our blends, then wean off of it. This will allow for time the new blend to build up on your system. However some customers do switch suddenly without any issues.

    Can I use this with Milky Mama tea?

    Yes this can be used in conjunction with Milky Mama tea.

    What is the shelf-life of the product?

    Our lactation blends have a best by date on the label. We recommend using them within 1-2 years for maximum potency and effective

    Is this guaranteed?

    All of our blends work to increase milk supply. However they all do not work exactly the same for the same person as we are each are unique and can respond differently. When trying herbal supplements to increase milk production trial and error is necessary, there is not a a way to know precisely beforehand which blend will work best for you.Remember lactation supplements have their place but they can not replace the support and expert advice of a lactation consultant, we highly recommend contacting one if you are having breastfeeding issues. We can not guarantee a specific outcome or result, individual results may vary.

      Love this product

      I tried every snack/drink etc with my first and nothing really helped my supply. Then I found the milk machine pills and they worked great! If I forgot to take the pills for a day or so, I noticed my supply would decrease. Fast forward for my second pregnancy, I had the pills ordered so they would be at the house when I got home from the hospital so I didn’t delay getting the most milk supply I could.
