Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is a plant grown in various parts of the world for medicinal purposes. It has been used for generations to improve milk supply and decrease inflammation in the body. It is sold both as a capsule and tea form, although the tea can be difficult to take for some due to its bitter taste.

  • Loose stools for some, but go away when fenugreek is discontinued
  • Can cause lowered blood glucose levels
  • Some reports of a noticeable increase of gas discomfort in baby after nursing
  • Improved cholesterol levels
  • Reduction of inflammation in the body
  • Promotes increased milk supply


Moringa oleifera, also known as the drumstick tree, is a fast-growing and hardy tree grown in many parts of the world. Originally found in the Himalayan Mountains, the plant has been used for thousands of years as treatment for a variety of reasons and conditions. Dead Sea Moringa is grown on a farm in the southern region of Israel. The effectiveness of Dead Sea Moringa is significant enough to call the plant “the Tree of Life” in many cultures. Indian medicine practitioners claim a wide range of benefits derived from this single plant.

Studies have demonstrated Dead Sea Moringa helps to increase milk flow in nursing mothers. Mothers who have taken Dead Sea Moringa leading up to childbirth report their milk comes in faster. Moringa has been shown in other studies to significantly increase the production of breast milk, with women who eat/take it, producing nearly two times the breast milk of other mothers. This means babies will get the milk they need and mothers don’t necessarily have to rely on supplementing with formula.
