Who needs to drink coffee while breastfeeding when we have SUTRA?
We’ll start with SUTRA Gold
All of the ingredients found in SUTRA Gold are great for you and your baby as you’re breastfeeding, but the top three ballers are ginger, turmeric, and coconut milk.
Ginger can give your breast milk production a big ol’ boost! It’s one of the best foods out there for promoting milk production. It also helps relieve sore throat and coughing. If you have any issues whatsoever with nausea or pain, it does wonders for both. On top of all that, ginger is great for your immune system. And the less you get sick, the lower the chances are of your baby getting sick!
Like ginger, turmeric is an immune booster. Turmeric has antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties, making it pretty great to have around during flu season. It also fights inflammation—good news for those of you out there suffering from painful, swollen breasts during breastfeeding. According to this study
, turmeric is highly effective in fighting off pain and inflammation.
You’ve for sure heard about the coconut craze by now, but it lives up to the hype! Not only does it promote milk production, it increases the capric and lauric acid found in your breastmilk, which gives your baby an immunity boost (Noticing a pattern yet?). Some breastfeeding moms experience indigestion or constipation, and coconut milk is an effective remedy for both.
What about SUTRA Black?
Good news for the hot cocoa lovers out there—SUTRA Black is another fantastic option for breastfeeding mothers!
We already talked some about the benefits of coconut milk, which is also found in SUTRA Black. This drink also packs the extra punch of activated charcoal and cocoa.
Activated charcoal is not excreted in breastmilk, so you don’t have to wonder about the effects it can have on your baby. All you have to think about is its effects on you! And, don’t worry, these effects are all positive. Activated charcoal helps eliminate toxins from your body, reduces brain fog (really great if you’ve decided not to drink coffee while breastfeeding!), and improves your digestion.
Cacao gives you that little added boost of energy that’s so great to have on those early mornings. It also contains small amounts of something called Theobromine, a compound known to stimulate breastmilk production.
In short, the answer to “Should I drink coffee while breastfeeding?” is that it’s much better not to. Try switching out your morning coffee for SUTRA Black or Gold for a week or two! You might be surprised at the effect it can have on your baby.
