Safe and effective lactation supplement : The use of Malunggay leaves in capsule form is shown as an effective and safe option for the augmentation of breast milk among mothers. In Table 2, it shows that by Day 10, moms taking Malunggay are producing more than twice as much milk as Moms in the control group.
Natural vs. synthetic galactagogues: In this study, doctors compare the amount of milk produced by mothers who consume Malunggay leaves (the only ingredient in Go-Lacta®) with Metoclopramide (Reglan®) and Domperidone. Reglan® and Domperidone are drugs used to increase lactation. Domperidone is not approved for consumption in the US, whereas Reglan® is available by prescription.
The results of the study present that mothers eating Malunggay made more milk than 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.

Supports lactation of breastfeeding mothers : 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 counselors who have special understanding and skills are most effective if they work with individual mothers, and if they help their colleagues to learn the same skills."
