Moringa and Breastfeeding: a plant-based boost for nursing mothers
Moringa oleifera, also known as Malunggay, is a tree native to the Northern part of India that now grows widely in tropical and subtropical climates. It was first referenced around 4,000 years ago as a medicinal remedy for over 300 diseases, including skin infections, eye infections, gastrointestinal problems, headaches, anemia and rheumatism.

For years, lactating women have been taking malunggay for breastfeeding, touting the leaves of the moringa tree as a “galactagogue” — food that improves the production of breast milk. Recently the World Health Organization endorsed moringa for breastfeeding by promoting the massive cultivation of the super-vegetable in countries where food is scarce and poverty is rampant.
