Get to Know Fenugreek

For those who don’t know, fenugreek, scientifically known as Trigonella foenum-graecum, is a plant that grows to a height of 60-90 cm. It has green leaves, white flowers, and pods filled with small, golden-brown seeds. Fenugreek seeds, also known as methi, are believed to have health benefits, promote breast enlargement, and helps in increasing milk production for nursing mothers.

For thousands of years, fenugreek seeds have been used in alternative medicine as a spice in various dishes and beverages, as well as in tobacco. Fenugreek seeds are widely available in the market, especially in America.

Dried and mature fenugreek seeds and extracts are used as a flavoring substitute for maple syrup. Meanwhile, oral consumption of fenugreek seeds in regular amounts has been granted Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) status by the FDA.

Benefits of Fenugreek for Nursing Mothers

As the best source of nutrition, breastfeeding is crucial for a baby’s growth. Unfortunately, some mothers may struggle to produce an adequate milk supply. This condition not only affects the baby but can also negatively impact a mother’s feelings, as they may feel unable to feed their baby that will eventually lead to stress and depression.

However, fenugreek seeds can indeed help overcome the difficulty of producing sufficient breast milk for nursing mothers. Fenugreek seeds have been used in various geographical areas worldwide and are known as galactogogues. Many believe that galactogogues are substances that can stimulate, maintain, or increase breast milk production.

In reality, the galactogogue effect of fenugreek is purely psychological. This is because the production of breast milk in nursing mothers involves a complex process that includes physical and emotional factors, as well as the interaction of various hormones, especially prolactin – Indonesian Pediatric Society (IDAI).

According to studies, fenugreek is an alternative natural and safe remedy for increasing breast milk production. In a 14-day study involving 77 mothers, the consumption of herbal tea with fenugreek seeds increased breast milk production, resulting in improved baby weight gain.

Another study divided 66 mothers into three groups. One group received fenugreek tea, the second group received a placebo, and the third group received neither.

Based on the results of these three groups, the milk volume from the group consuming fenugreek tea increased to 2.47 ounces (75 ml), while the group receiving the placebo experienced an increase to 1.15 ounces (34 ml).

A placebo is a pill given to induce positive psychological effects and does not contain any medication.
