key superfoods to promote lactation:
•organic, gluten free, glyphosate free oats contain beta-glucan which is a type of soluble fiber that may raise the levels of the breastfeeding hormone prolactin. higher prolactin levels can have a positive effect on breast milk production. oats are high in iron, zinc, manganese, and calcium. they contain B vitamins to help increase energy, elevate mood and fight off exhaustion, anxiety, stress, and depression.
•organic flaxseeds contain plant estrogens which are associated with the stimulation of the milk glands and greater production of breast milk. they also are high in omega-3 fatty acids which are important for augmenting breast milk supply and promoting baby's brain development.
