Based on a generations-old Austrailan recipe, our Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookies boast three main ingredients commonly believed to impact milk supply: oats, brewer's yeast, and flax.
1. Oats (or oatmeal) are key in boosting milk supply because of the iron they contain that nursing moms are frequently needing. Oats are also filling and dense with healthy calories - and nursing moms need calories.
2. Brewer's yeast is an ingredient that has also long been touted to increase milk supply. Brewer's yeast is one of the best natural sources of B vitamins, which are essential to overall health of a nursing mom (and any woman).
3. The oil from flax seed in considered by many to be a galactagogue (substance that improves lactation). It is also a great form of fiber. And flax is power-packed with omega-3s (essential fatty acids) that are absolutely crucial to a nursing mom's diet (as well as baby's diet, and all human health in general)
