Does Go-Lacta® work? Read the studies and make up your own mind.

In this study, doctors compare the amount of milk produced by mothers using Malunggay leaves (the only ingredient in Go-Lacta®), Metoclopramide (Reglan®) and Domperidone. Reglan® and Domperidone are drugs; Domperidone is not approved for consumption in the US, whereas Reglan® is available by prescription.

The results of the study present that the mothers eating Malunggay made more milk than the ones taking Reglan®, but less milk than mothers taking Domperidone. Malunggay, a pure vegetable, provides lactation benefits from the consumption of an all-natural galactagogue, without the side-effects explicitly identified when taking prescribed medication.

Malunggay works, and works even better with help and support. "We have found that malunggay [...] capsules do enhance lactation among breastfeeding mothers and there were no reported adverse effects from the study. In addition, public education, personal advice, and friendly support from health workers and counsellors who have special understanding and skills are most effective if they work with individual mothers, and if they help their colleagues learn the same skills."
