A galactagogue is anything that excites lactation. In other words any thing that increases milk production (source: http://www.galactagogue.com/).

After reading an entry by Mama- miya on EDAMAME, (which actually caused a minor chaos to the susuibu.com members, sebok mencari benda alah nih), saya pun sebok mencari gak.. Mr Asben found this green beans at Jusco Bandar Perda..and I also bought Teh Longan and red dates yg dah lama cari..
The green beans or Japanese soy beans does taste good..sedap crunchy lemak2 gitu.. few mothers said they can feel the effect (B bengkak) on the same day..but sad to say..not for me... I did not feel a thing...
The longan and red dates tea tastes so sweet.. but sedap... it did boost my milk sikit..i mean a usual 12oz per day (3X pumping at office) had increased to 14oz per day... tp tu lahh..kadang2 minum..kadang2 terlupa..
Most of all, banyak mana galactogogue you take pun if malas pumping...you can start saying goodbye to high yield.
Pst:-really miss my early days, sekali pump dapat 8oz...huhuhu
