Shativari - What do you know about it?

So the internet is limited on much about this herb... I know it's supposed to work like domperidone and can be used along side dom, which allows you to decrease the dom dosing.

I am experiencing some low supply (my milk didn't come in very strong, I'm getting about an oz combined both breasts and my DS is 5 days so I'm not *too* far off the norm) and someone locally offered me her leftover shativari. But I can't find too much information on it...

I'll do anything to increase my supply... Right now we're supplementing at the breast (about 1 oz or so nursed on one side only and then I pump the other side) with donor breastmilk and that's fine... but I'd like to get off that and know I can. He just had his posterior tongue tie clipped yesterday morning and we've taken him off the nipple shield (which we only used for 2 days to get through the TT thing). He's finally peeing and pooping now that he has that bit of extra milk.

So... what do you know about shativari?

I tried the tincture and it was awful - the taste was horrendous. It also didn't do anything for me. I ended up going on dom.
