Sweet and savory herbs used to promote lactation, brewer’s yeast, whole oats, flax seed, and a portion of the powdered placenta are married together to produce an exquisite cookie for the mother to enjoy while breastfeeding is established. Several crucial hormones which assist in the production and ejection of breast milk are house inside of the placenta. Research performed by M.S. Blank and H. G. Friesen on rats in 1980 indicated rat placenta does in fact contain orally-active substances which affect blood levels of pituitary and ovarian hormones such as prolactin and progesterone. This provides evidence that consuming the placenta during the postpartum period can help to both increase breast milk production and also assist in the ejection process to allow the supply of breast milk to become more accessible to the newborn baby.
