Lactation is the process of milk production. Human milk is secreted by the mammary glands, which are located within the fatty tissue of the breast. The hormone oxytocin is produced in response to the birth of a new baby, and it both stimulates uterine contractions and begins the lactation process. For the first few hours of nursing, a special fluid called colostrum is delivered, which is especially high in nutrients, fats, and antibodies to protect the newborn from infection. Thereafter the amount of milk produced is controlled primarily by the hormone prolactin, which is produced in response to the length of time the infant nurses at the breast. Excessive physical or mental stress during labour or any other tension may disturb production of prolactin which ultimately affects the process of lactation. Physiological conditions like nutrition deficiency or anaemia are also responsible for such inadequacies. Lacta-M capsules and granules contain herbs that are trusted and safe non-hormonal galactagogues, meaning they promote the secretion and flow of milk, improving a lactating women's milk supply. The use of herbs and natural naturals during lactation dates back to the earliest breast-feeding mothers and has become increasingly popular over the last decade. These herbs contain phytoestrogens that stimulate milk production. Many women cannot nurse because the baby has used up so many minerals in the mother's body that she has hardly any left for milk production. These herbs not only stimulate milk production, but provide high amounts of minerals needed in order to produce breast milk. When a mother has a decrease in milk supply, often associated with the use of birth control pills or on occasion, for no obvious reason when the baby is 3 or 4 months old, Lacta-M will often bring the supply back to normal.

Avoid caffeine, alcohol and smoking. Avoid sleeping on your stomach - compressing the breasts at night, and wearing a bra that is too tight. The most effective way to increase milk production is to increase the frequency of feedings each day. Eat whole grains and cereals, fresh fruits and vegetables and foods that provide plenty of protein, calcium and iron. A balanced diet that includes 5 servings of milk or dairy products each day will give you enough calcium. If you don
