    Default What Brands of Fenugreek and/or Blessed Thistle Are Really Effective For you?

    Anyone who have had experienced successfully an increase in supply when using Fenugreek and/or Blessed Thistle? Can you recommend the brands?

    There are so many brands and various prices out there, it gets really confusing which is really effective.

    Thanks!

    Hi, I just went to the health food store (healthy life) and bought a packet of fenugreek and a packet of brewers yeast. I then baked Anzac biscuits and added a tablespoon of brewers yeast and two tablespoons of fenugreek. Tasted good and seemed to halp my supply.

    I bought Herbs of Gold brand at the Health Food shop because it had the most herbs in the capsules so it ended up being cheaper then the other brands.

    I think the brand I used was called mothers own? Had a picture of a mum and baby on the front. Worked great.

    I used the herbs of gold one, went to buy fenugreek from the health food store and the guy recommended it as it had a much higher dose of fenugreek (plus blessed thistle) so you only took one tab twice a day rather than the two tabs three times a day. I bought it for convenience and kept on it. I ended up finding it online (vitamin king) and buying three months supply at a time to make the postage worth while, but then it was way cheaper than the stores.

    Thank you so much ladies! At least now I have something to work on now. I have used Nature's Sunshine and Herbs of Gold products before but it didnt occur to me they have fenugreek or blessed thistle.

    Veggiemama, thanks for the info on Vitamin King. I looked it up and wow really great prices. I thought of visiting the health food stores at first...Oh and the herbal concentrations are really high for the Herbs of Gold ones.

    Will definitely explore more before ordering/buying.

    Hi luv2luv, if you dont mind, can I ask under what circumstances could you start on motilium? Was it prescribed? By GP or OB?

    I had low supply problem with DS1 and would really like to get everything right this time.

    Ta!

    Motillium was my lifesaver too. DS decided to start waking every 2-3 hours at 4 months and my supply was just not enough, 2 weeks on motillium and I was loaded ready to squirt anyone in the face who came to close haha 

    This is a great thread! Wish I'd been on this forum when ds was really little - or better yet, before he arrived!

    For the girls who recommended a brand of fenugreek or blessed thistle, did you use one or the other, or a combination of the herbs? What did you find worked best for you?

    Sorry to hijack, OP
