Postnatal

The Queen of Golden Milks

by Nicole Rice, Countertop Foods

This Sesame Golden Milk, made with our mother-focused blends, is perfect for any new mom.

All Countertop blends are made with Ayurvedic principles, relying on galactagogues to regulate nursing needs. Galactagogues are herbs and spices that help the body make breast milk. They have been used by Ayurvedic practitioners and passed on from mom to mom and friend to friend for centuries.

Our top three galactagogues: fenugreek, cumin, and oatstraw. Fenugreek increases enzyme production in the body, helping to normalize and stabilize blood sugar levels, boost digestion, and improve immunity. Turmeric & black pepper also boost immunity, reduce inflammation, and contain manganese and Vitamin K, ideal for weight loss, skin repair, and regulating blood calcium levels. Cumin helps fortify bones and boosts production of healthy red blood cells. Oatstraw is a natural breast milk producer. Other star ingredients in Countertop blends include cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and clove, which all regulate your body, aid in digestion, and improve nutrient absorption and circulation.
