If you are aware of Motherlove’s herbal supplement products, then you probably know that we offer both Moringa and More Milk Moringa breastfeeding supplements. In regard to their names and differences, Motherlove has received many questions about these two specific products and how they differ from one another.
In this blog, we will define these two products and make clear distinctions between them. This way, moms can make informed decisions about their breastfeeding supplements, while simultaneously choosing a supplement that fits the needs of their specific breastfeeding journeys.
WHAT IS MORINGA?
To first understand the difference between Moringa and More Milk Moringa, it is important to understand the herb that is in both breastfeeding supplements. Moringa, sometimes called malunggay, is known to be a natural galactagogue.
Moringa oleifera contains a wide variety of proteins, vitamins, and minerals, including but are not limited to:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin B1 (thiamine)
Aside from containing multiple varieties of vitamins and essential minerals, Moringa is rich in antioxidants, such as Quercetin and Chlorogenic Acid. Both of these antioxidants have been found to help moderate blood sugar and lower blood pressure.
Studies have supported moringa as a natural galactagogue for postpartum mothers. The herb has been used for centuries to help new mothers breastfeed, and Motherlove uses it as a main ingredient in both Moringa capsules and More Milk Moringa.
MORINGA VS. MORE MILK MORINGA
The main difference between More Milk Moringa and Moringa is the use of their herbal blends. In Motherlove’s Moringa herbal supplement, moringa is used as the primary ingredient to provide breastfeeding support.
More Milk Moringa
More Milk Moringa has the same herbal base as Moringa capsules, with the addition of other known galactagogue herbs. More Milk Moringa also contains the herbs blessed thistle, nettle, and fennel. Not only does the formula differ, but More Milk Moringa is also encapsulated with sunflower lecithin, a soy-free agent that has been known to help clogged milk ducts.
Take Away: Though the differences between More Milk Moringa and Moringa are slight, it is important to note that both can support moms in different ways. For instance, Moringa is a highly focused moringa herb supplement to support lactation. Though Moringa may have less herbal ingredients, this does not determine its effectiveness for supporting breast milk supply.
HOW ARE THEY SIMILAR?
Some moms have claimed that the use of fenugreek herb as a galactagogue caused them stomach sensitivities. If you are a mother with digestive sensitivities or have a thyroid condition, Motherlove offers fenugreek-free breastfeeding supplement options. Both More Milk Moringa and Moringa are fenugreek-free products.
Though there are some moms that claim fenugreek causes stomach sensitivities, Motherlove’s supplements that contain fenugreek are blended with other herbs to diminish possible discomfort after consuming fenugreek. This practice is in place to counteract any discomfort after consuming fenugreek.
Both Moringa capsules and More Milk Moringa are certified Kosher. This certification means that both capsules are professionally certified by KOF-K, a kosher certification agency dedicated to ensuring that consumable items are approved under Kashrut dietary laws.
Both Moringa and More Milk Moringa are both made with organic herbs in a zero-waste facility. Both supplements are also USDA Certified Organic.
Only for Postpartum
Both Moringa and More Milk Moringa are to be used after giving birth. You should not consume these products during pregnancy.
