At only 140 calories these sweet & spicy lactation bars contain no gluten, no soy and no animal products. If you are wheat, soy or dairy-free, these allergen-friendly bars are the way to go.
Based on special family recipes that are hundreds of years old, these power-packed bars feature potent Ayurvedic herbs, like fenugreek, and nourishing ingredients to support your lactation.
These lactation bars are sweet treats, but the herbs are strong and the bars (they are not cookies or brownies) have a unique Indian flavor profile.
Handcrafted and made fresh with over a dozen premium ingredients.
Lactation Support - Fenugreek, an herb* that has been used for centuries by women to support lactation. It is the galactagogue most recommended by lactation specialists and medical professionals to help women with their milk supply. Fenugreek works by stimulating the sweat glands; a woman's mammary glands are modified sweat glands. (Please see below for additional usage info).
Healthy Fats - Coconut , which is high in healthy fats and lauric acid, and Ghee, a nourishing clarified butter that has been used in Ayurveda for thousands of years, is rich in vitamins A, E and D & butyric acid - a short-chain fatty acid that is good for intestinal support. Both these fats can help to improve the fatty composition in breast milk.
Protein - Almond meal which is high in protein, calcium & omega-3 fatty acids.
Joint and Muscular Support - Featuring two specialized Ayuverdic herbs*: Peepramul, traditionally used to strengthen the joints and ease pelvic and lower back inflammation and powdered Acacia Gum, which is traditionally used to promote muscle flexibility and energize the body.
Healthy Digestion - Ginger can ease gastro-intestinal discomfort and Poppy Seeds, containing folate, iron, zinc and linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid, can help with constipation.
*We use non-concentrated culinary quantities for all our herbs.

*NOTE: Those with sensitive stomachs, thyroid problems, blood sugar issues (such as diabetes), peanut allergies and those taking certain blood clotting medications should avoid fenugreek.
