Helps promotes milk secretion.
A large percentage of breastfeeding mothers (35% to 44% according to most studies) report the perception of insufficient milk as the main difficulty encountered and the first cause of premature weaning. A fenugreek-based supplement can help because it is considered galactogenic, i.e. it promotes milk secretion in the nursing mother.
BIO-Vega’s REGU-LACTA capsules are primarily composed of fenugreek.

Fenugreek is one of the oldest medicinal plants with documented history. While widely used as a spice in Indian, North African and Middle Eastern cuisine, this aromatic herb also offers an impressive range of therapeutic benefits : she is used in herbal medicine as galactagogue to assist in the production of milk and as supportive therapy to help control glucose levels.

The fenugreek is considered galactogenic, that is to say, it promotes the secretion of milk in nursing mothers. A 2008 scientific literature review examined all publications concerning the insufficiency of milk between 1996 and 2007, and concerned with the feedings of healthy infants born at term in a dozen countries, including Canada. A large percentage of breastfeeding mothers (35% to 44% according to most studies) reports the perception of insufficient milk as the main difficulty and the leading cause of premature weaning.
Fenugreeks effect on lactation is not clearly explained. Lactation being stimulated by oxytocin, the plant may have a similar effect. However, other modes of action are envisaged. Fenugreek may well simply stimulate milk production by providing a rich source of fatty essential acids. This assumption, however, explain a qualitative improvement more than quantitative. Another explanation is that fenugreek directly increases the amount of breast tissue and thus stimulates lactation. A component of the plant, diosgenin, is in effect considered as a stimulant of the growth of mammary tissue.
Otherwise, one of fenugreeks amino acids, 4-hydroxy-isoleucine, could help to regulate blood glucose levels. In several animal studies, this substance stimulated insulin production and improved the sensitivity of the organism to this hormone. By stimulating the endocrine secretion of the pancreas, the insulin tropic property allowed fenugreek to benefit from a renewed interest in the treatment of diabetes, due to the strengthening of the hypoglycaemic effect of galactomannans.
