WHAT HORMONE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MILK PRODUCTION?
Lactogenesis is the process of producing milk in your body. The hormone responsible for breast milk production is: prolactin. Once you’ve “given birth” to your placenta, the estrogen and progesterone levels in your body decrease significantly to give rise to prolactin. Prolactin is a pituitary gland hormone that sends signals to your body telling it that it’s time to make yummy milk to feed your baby(s).
WHAT IS A GALACTAGOGUE?
A galactagogue is any kind of food or drug that’s used as a supplement or support aid to increase the flow of mom’s breast milk. In other words, a galactagogue promotes lactation. Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, Alfafa and Brewer’s Yeast are examples of galactagogues.
