What is Fenugreek?

Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is one of the oldest traditional medicinal herbs. It grows to 2 to 3 feet (60 to 90 centimeters) tall and has small, white flowers. Each green leaf is divided into three smaller leaves. This non-toxic seed is found in Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines and has long been used as a medicine in China and India. Breastfeeding moms often use it as a galactagogue, meaning they consume it to help enhance breast milk supply.

Is Fenugreek safe?

Fenugreek has a long history of safe use. However, when it comes to supplements, it is important to avoid use during pregnancy. If you're nursing, taking medication, or have medical conditions (allergic individuals or diabetes), consult your healthcare professional before use. On some rare occasions, individuals allergic to peanuts or other legumes may experience allergic/asthma symptoms due to the fenugreek herb. This variation in tolerance could be due to individual differences in metabolism and genetic factors. At UpSpring, we recognize these differences and offer both with-fenugreek and fenugreek-free supplements to accommodate diverse needs and preferences on the breastfeeding journey. While fenugreek is mostly a "well-tolerated" safe herb, fenugreek supplements can cause some potential gastrointestinal upset, such as gas or nausea. Due to the natural maple scent of fenugreek herb, you may notice a maple syrup odor in sweat or urine, which is nothing to worry about. However, if you or your nursing baby experience this, you can simply discontinue use.
