I browse through the internet about alfalfa and found this below article. My comment in red.
Alfalfa Leaf (Medicago sativa L.)
Alfalfa leaf is said to promote the development of the glandular tissue of the breasts. It can be taken both during pregnancy and after birth by mothers with a history of low milk supply. Taken after birth, it increases milk supply and is reported to increase the fat content of breastmilk. Incidentally, so do other so-called “green foods.”
That’s why some mothers akan dapati susu dia jadi lebih pekat & agak kehijauan. Ada yang kata milk supply tak increase sangat tapi sangat significant pada kepekatan susu. Baby pun tak ambil masa lama untuk kenyang. Susu yang bernutrisi!
Alfalfa leaf is one of our most nutritious herbs. It contains chlorophyll, a host of minerals-calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, silicon, zinc-numerous vitamins-A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, D, E, and K-as well as essential and non-essential amino acids.
Kerana itu ia dipanggil Raja Segala Tumbuhan. sgt banyak khasiatnya.
Alfalfa leaf is estrogenic and antifungal. It has substances that nourish the liver, activate the kidneys, suppress inflammation, address digestive disorders, and balance blood sugar. It is traditionally prescribed to promote the function of the pituitary gland, the source of the main hormones for lactation.
The minerals in alfalfa leaf are well balanced and easily absorbed; pregnant and lactating women therefore frequently take alfalfa leaf as a mineral supplement.
Ianya selamat untuk wanita hamil. If only I know this masa mengandung dulu…
Of Note: Because alfalfa is a powerful galactagogue, mothers with normal milk supply should reduce or discontinue alfalfa a few weeks before due date. Mothers with a history of low milk supply should be cautious as well, especially if their breasts show signs of better development this pregnancy. Oversupply can reportedly develop in these mothers as well.
Pregnancy: Safe. Estrogenic. Although alfalfa can be taken to promote menstruation, there are no warnings regarding pregnancy. That said, do not overdose!
Allergy: Rare. Skin rash.
Side Effects: Diarrhea or loose stool in the mother or baby. Reduce the dosage for a few days.
Caution: Do not over-eat alfalfa sprouts or seeds. These may trigger an auto-immune, Lupus-like condition in sensitive individuals. The American Pharmaceutical Association warns that persons with systemic lupus erythematosus should avoid alfalfa products. Sheila Humphrey however, in “Nursing Mother’s Herbal,” says that the questionable substance does not exist in the leaf, and that the leaf supplement should therefore not be a problem.
Alfalfa has been known to aggravate lupus and other auto-immune disorders. Avoid alfalfa is you have an auto-immune problem.
Mmg ada pada pek alfalfa yang ia tak dinasihatkan diambil oleh mereka yang berpenyakit Lupus (SLE).
Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle are contraindicated during pregnancy. DO NOT TAKE WHILE PREGNANT!!!
Sebab tu pregant women tak bole amik halba & herbal tea i.e. Milkmaid Tead, Sacred Tea etc sebab mengandungi halba.
Fenugreek may lower blood sugar levels.
If you are allergic to other members of the Composite (daisy, ragwort) family of plants, you may be allergic to Blessed Thistle. and or Chamomile.
Tak sempat nak ulas panjang sebab nak kejar masa. Tapi hal ni rasanya lebih baik dikongsikan cepat2. Tambahan pula sekarang ni ramai mengadu kekurangan susu.
