Re: Fenugreek & others and weight gain

I don't think I noticed that it effected my appetite when I was taking it, but I did read once that it is used to increase appetite. I was under the impression that it is very important to take Blessed Thistle in conjunction with Fenugreek. I found that taking them both (capsule form) really increased my supply.

I used the Mother's Milk Two tincture to try and maintain/increase supply while I was pregnant and breastfeeding. It didn't successfully work for me.

I find the capsules of Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle to be much more user friendly than the tinctures or tea. Popping the pills three times a day is much easier and quicker than having to add the tincture to whatever you're drinking three times a day. The tea is a nice, enjoyable, and useful thing to have to drink on the side if you are primarily using the tincture or pills, but using the tea as your supplement requires something like drinking six cups a day which is quite burdensome.

It's raining!!! It hasn't rained in weeks. How exciting.
