Fenugry Capsule


Fenugreek is one of the world's oldest medicinal herbs. It has a variety of uses, including increasing breast milk production. Fenugreek seeds contain hormone precursors and phytoestrogen (a compound that seems to mimic the effects of the hormone estrogen) that enhance milk production and are used by nursing mothers to increase inadequate breast milk supply. Studies have shown that fenugreek is a potent stimulator of breast milk production and its use was associated with increases as much as 900%.

Fenugreek & Breastfeeding

Fenugreek seeds contain hormone precursors that increases milk supply. Scientists do not know for sure how this happens, but it is believed that fenugreek stimulates breast milk glands, as they are similar to sweat glands. Women all around the world today take fenugreek seeds in capsules or pills. The capsules or pills can be found at most vitamin and nutrition stores, some supermarkets and natural foods stores. Fenugreek can also be taken in tea form, although tea is believed to be less effective than the capsules.

Fenugreek is considered safe for nursing moms when used in moderation and is found on the U.S. FDA's (Food and Drug Administration) 'Generally Recognized As Safe' list.

How Long Will It Take Effect?

Typically, increases in breast milk production by taking fenugreek capsules occur within 24 hours, but may sometimes extend 2-3 days after initial supplementation, with full effectiveness attained within 2 weeks. Once milk flow has been successfully established, fenugreek usage can be stopped without a corresponding interruption in breast milk flow.

Side Effects

The most common side effect is a maple syrup odour in urine and sweat (this is not a bad thing; it just means that the proper dosage has been reached). In overdose, fenugreek can cause diarrhoea, aggravate asthma, or induce hypoglycaemia.


Mothers who suffer from asthma, or who are allergic to peanuts, should probably avoid taking fenugreek, unless otherwise indicated by your doctor. Pregnant women should avoid taking fenugreek because it can cause uterine (womb) contractions (i.e. induce labour).

Do note that some women may rarely have allergy to this herb. For more info on precautions, follow this link: PRECAUTIONS FOR FENUGREEK
