Support Healthy Lactation with a Blend of Tried and True Herbs!
Nursing Blend is a dietary supplement that contains a blend of herbs including fenugreek and fennel seed used for centuries by nursing mothers when a boost in breast milk supply is needed. This comprehensive formula also offers essential vitamins and minerals, to ensure proper nutrition, along with the herbal ingredients to support healthy lactation. It provides 100% Daily Value of most vitamins and minerals, and extra amounts of vitamins known to be especially important for lactating women, including Vitamin D and the B vitamins.
The Importance of Vitamin D
Current research shows that most women are deficient in Vitamin D, which our skin makes when exposed to sunlight, probably because we are so careful with covering up, avoiding sun or using sunscreen. That means that nursing mothers are deficient, as are their babies. Once believed to be important only for bone and dental health, a rapidly growing body of scientific research now indicates that Vitamin D plays a vital role in preventing health issues. Although the current Daily Value for vitamin D is set at only 400 IU, many experts are concerned that this amount grossly underestimates our need for Vitamin D and are recommending that all people, and especially lactating women, increase their daily intake of this key nutrient. By providing 700% Daily Value of Vitamin D, Nursing Blend helps to increase circulating levels of Vitamin D in nursing women, thereby ensuring that the breast milk produced by these women will have enough Vitamin D to prevent suboptimal Vitamin D status in their growing babies.

Nursing Blend also contains extra amounts of Vitamins B-6 and B-12, which are necessary for the proper function of the immune system and nervous system and in the production of red and white blood cells. Folic acid continues to be important during nursing to aid in healthy cell production.
