Used to reduce or dry up breast milk supply. Also effective in reducing secretions such as sweating, or hot flashes. Made with certified organic herb. Contains alcohol. Not for use during pregnancy.
A liquid herbal extract is a solution of alcohol and de-ionized water that contains the herb's active constituents. The American Academy of Pediatrics states that a small amount of alcohol is compatible with breastfeeding, and that alcohol is out of the breast milk two hours after consuming.
Advantages of an herbal extract:
• Quality: no heat is used in the manufacturing process. Herb quality is lost with heat processing and in dried, powdered form.
• Absorbability: herbal constituents are quickly carried into the body so they work faster.
• Shelf Life: extracts maintain their quality for several years if kept out of sunlight and extreme heat. No refrigeration is necessary.
