It was suggested to me as well, I'm not sure why. Haven't tried it. Would also be interested in more information!!

I've never heard of capsules, but I do have brewers yeast that I use in cooking for my supply. Someone posted a recipe for a great milk-boosting oatmeal cookie that uses it...I need to find that and print it out, because those cookies are AWESOME.

Yes it does help a lot of woman with milk supply issues. My mom who was a LLL for years swore by it.

i had this recommended to me by my Kaiser lactation nurse ...
start with 1/day and increase by 1 until you get to 16. Once you get to the level of milk supply you are happy with, decrease by 1 until you can maintain.

Honestly I took so many things, fenugreek capsules, mother's milk tea, brewer's yeast, blessed thistle, i'm not sure which one is the one that helped me. RIght now I'm on mother's milk 1/day (used to do 4cups/day) and 12 capsules of brewer's yeast and decreasing daily.

something helped me boost my supply, not sure if it was the above, or just my baby sucking better!

btw brewer's yeast gave me AWFUL gas... err I *think* it's the brewer's yeast
