Previously named 'Elan x The Herborium Lactation Soup'.
According to principles in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the quality of breast milk relies on a well-functioning blood and Qi system. Our Lactation Soup blend, known as 'Tong Cao Xia Nai Tang,' is carefully crafted with herbs traditionally used to support lactation.
By incorporating beneficial ingredients, including rice paper pith and eight other healing herbs, our Lactation Soup aims to provide nourishment and support for new mothers. While it is commonly believed to promote lactation, please note that individual results may vary.
We recommend incorporating our Lactation Soup into a balanced postpartum diet to help support your body's needs during this important time. Please consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice regarding lactation and overall postpartum care.
