Excellent product . I was told to consume 3 3 pills of blessed thistle and fenugreek each 3 times in a day , for lactation support and increasing breast milk . However, this served the purpose wonderfully - with only two pills each day. definitely helped with my milk supply . will recommend over any other lactation support pills in the market. i am on my third bottle and take this everyday without fail.

This is a great supplement for lactation support. Helped my milk supply (though I'm on other medication to help with that, too), and the high dosage per tablet is fantastic. I've tried other supplements with lower dosages of fenugreek, and you end up having to take 4+ a day, in addition to the blessed thistle. With this particular brand/bottle, you only take 2 per day, total!

Love this product. Have needed supplements with all three of my babes from the beginning through to when they stopped nursing (about a year), and having to only take 2/day is so much easier than the recommended amount with the previous brand I used. Just wish they were back in stock! Any idea when that might be??

Seems to be working! I have been taking multiple capsules of Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle for 6 months (my baby is almost 7 months) and have managed to exclusively breast feed. I recently switched to these because they are only 2 capsules daily. Seem to have same effect as taking multiple capsules all day long. Will buy again.

This delivers results! My baby just suddenly quit nursing at 9 months and my milk was low... Was pumping about 2oz a day and I thought I'd try this as a last ditch effort. It really works. I haven't changed anything other than taking this supplement and it has increased my milk to about 8oz a day. We still have to supplement with formula but I have hope that I might be able to keep this up till baby is a year old. On the days I forget to take this, my milk is back to low again, so I do believe this is really working.
