Organic Ginger Root: Ginger root is known to help reduce nausea but it also is a great ingredient to increase milk production immediately postpartum. Ginger also is beneficial for relieving pain and inflammation.
Organic Milk Thistle: Milk thistle is a galactagogue meaning that it promotes or increases lactation. It is also helps to prevent high blood pressure, heartburn, menstrual pain, and depression.
