Shatavari - for Women

Shatavari, also known as wild asparagus, is an Ayurvedic herb used for centuries for many issues, including as a reproductive tonic for both men and women, as a digestive soother, and an herb that helps one adapt and cope with stress.  It is rich in antioxidants and helps to promote healthy energy levels and strength.  It is also well-known for its ability to increase breastmilk production in breastfeeding mothers.  It’s consid

Nursing Tea Moringa Blend & Nursing Tincture Moringa Blend

This is a great tasting herbal combination formulated specifically to increase and enrich breastmilk production in nursing mothers. (The tea and the tincture are made from the same combination of herbs - it's just two different ways of taking it.)  This combination not only helps increase breastmilk production, but has the additional benefits of helping to alleviate and dispel gas, indigestion and colic in the baby and mother, as well as helping the mother's uterus to regain its normal shape and size after birth. The product is extremely high in vitamins, minerals, iron, protein, essential amino acids, and antioxidants. Many mothers of twins have used this product and nothing else, and successfully made enough breastmilk to feed both babies. Because its such a gentle (yet effective) product, its the one most recommended for mothers of newborns, for babies with sensitive tummies, those who tend towards gassiness, or those in need of extra nutrition.

Testimonial

Pam's tinctures, blog posts and Q&As have been such a Godsend as I've navigated the ups and downs of motherhood this year, and I am so deeply grateful for all that she does! I first discovered her products at Healthy Horizons in Burlingame when I was starting to get recurrent plugged ducts while trying to breastfeed my daughter, and my lactation consultant recommended Herb Lore's Poke Root tincture to me. It was hugely helpful in clearing up any plugs that I had going on, but unfortunately they started recurring more and more frequently and I eventually had to make the decision to wean my baby off and dry up the milk I was producing. I then switched to Herb Lore's Sage Tincture which helped me dry up safely, while continuing to nurse my baby as long as I could. After that I discovered her other non-alcohol based tinctures including Astragalus, Echinacea, Cold & Flu, Quiet Cough and also her Teething Tincture, and I love that I now have a natural, drug-free way to protect my family from all the germs and flu viruses around us especially during flu season. And of course with my baby's teething pains! Pam and her guidance, information and herbal tinctures have now become such a big part of my family's life and health that I don't know what I'd do without her. Thank you Pam!  RJ
