    Default Fenugreek recommendations

    Hey, I have a friend dealing with low supply issues, but she lives in a country where she can't get fenugreek. I want to send her some. Does anyone have a brand recommendation and a dosage? She's 7 weeks postpartum and is feeding on demand, but after major weight loss for the baby is supplementing 3 times a day. She said things are improving, but she still needs all the help she can get.
    Thanks!

    I am not sure on the brand, as I always used "Natures Way" because that's what my local store sells. They are all vegan capsules, and organic and all that hoo haa...

    BUT..

    Be sure to get her Fenugreek SEED vs just Fenugreek. The seed is more potent, and will deliver better results than just the leaves themselves.

    HTH!!!
    I'm back, baby.

    Thanks that does help! The bottles I am seeing on Amazon are about $9 per 120 capsules... should I get her one? two? How much do you take a day, and how long would she need to take it to see if it was going to make a difference for her?

    I take nine per day... and I also use Nature's Way! I don't smell like syrup though... some of the girls on here say they take about twelve per day to get that smell (that's how you know it's really working)!!

    When I was taking Fenugreek, I was able to purchase it online and was able to find it for under $5 a bottle... Good Luck...

    I would also suggest tincture over capsules, that packs a better punch as well. I had a lot of success with More Milk Plus, which is a tincture that has fenugreek as well as a number of other herbs.
