About Go-Lacta

Go-Lacta is made from premium quality Moringa leaves, a superfood known for its high nutrient content and traditional use in supporting lactation and breast milk production. Go-Lacta is 100% vegan, natural, and free from artificial additives, making it safe and effective for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and their babies. The product is designed to be taken as a daily supplement to promote healthy lactation and support optimal milk supply. Additionally, it is an excellent source of nutrition for families to take, providing a variety of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that support overall health and well-being.

Go-Lacta is carefully formulated with the well-being of both mother and baby in mind. Our premium Moringa leaves are sourced from the Philippines, where the soil and climate provide optimal nutrients for maternal and infant health. Our products exceed safety and quality standards, making them safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women, as well as for infants starting their first foods. Go-Lacta is a 100% vegan superfood, made purely from natural ingredients without any artificial processes, and is free from common allergens, making it especially ideal for baby's first food.

Go-Lacta is a nutrient-rich superfood that can be taken at any time before giving birth to provide essential nutrients for both mom and baby. Starting Go-Lacta during pregnancy is highly recommended to achieve optimal breastfeeding outcomes. Early preparation for breastfeeding can help your body fully develop its milk glands, especially in cases where the baby arrives prematurely. During the third trimester, the breasts will continue to increase in size as the milk glands develop in preparation for feeding the baby. By incorporating Go-Lacta into your diet, you can give yourself and your baby the added nutrition needed for a healthy breastfeeding journey.
If you have struggled with low milk supply in the past, Go-Lacta can provide a head start to ensure you and your baby have a successful breastfeeding journey.
To get started, we recommend taking 2 capsules of our 500mg formulation twice a day with food, and gradually increasing to 2 capsules three times a day with food as you approach your delivery date. This will help boost your breast milk supply as soon as your baby arrives.
As with any supplement, we recommend consulting with your healthcare professional before starting to take Go-Lacta, especially if you have any pre-existing health conditions or are taking any medications that may interact with the supplement.

Go-Lacta can be taken weeks or months after giving birth as long as you are breastfeeding. Since it is a natural galactagogue, it is highly effective in increasing breast milk supply. You will start to notice a significant increase in your milk production, which can help ensure that your baby is well-nourished.
It is important to note that while Go-Lacta is safe and natural, we recommend consulting with your healthcare professional before taking any supplements, especially if you have a health condition or are taking medications that could interact with the product.

Every mom's breastfeeding journey is unique, and the amount of milk supply needed for her baby may vary. On average, we suggest starting with 2 capsules of Go-Lacta twice a day with food for the first 3 days. After that, you may increase the dosage to 2 capsules three times a day, and adjust as needed based on your lactation requirements. It's important to consult with your lactation consultant or healthcare professional as they are familiar with your individual situation and medical history. Once a healthy and preferred milk supply is achieved, you may find that you can gradually decrease the dosage.

Go-Lacta is a natural galactagogue that can be taken for as long as you are breastfeeding to support continued breast milk supply. In addition to its lactation-boosting benefits, Go-Lacta also provides numerous nutritional benefits from the Moringa leaves. Some people have even continued to take Go-Lacta after they've stopped breastfeeding for its overall health benefits. However, we always recommend consulting with your healthcare professional before starting or continuing any supplement regimen.

If you are experiencing an oversupply of breast milk, we recommend reducing the number of Go-Lacta supplements you are taking until your supply meets your baby's needs.

Breastfeeding is often perceived as an instinctual act that comes naturally to every mom. However, for some, medical conditions such as Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) and Insufficient Glandular Tissue (IGT) can make breastfeeding a challenge. It is important to note that breastfeeding is still possible for those with these conditions, and healthcare professionals can provide guidance on how to make it work.

Fortunately, Go-Lacta has been shown to be effective in increasing milk supply for patients with PCOS. This is due to the ability of Moringa leaves to increase prolactin levels and normalize blood sugar levels. The unique properties of Go-Lacta make it an excellent option for moms struggling with low milk supply, including those who have been told that their mammary tissue and ducts are not fully developed to produce milk.
Despite concerns about insufficient glandular tissue, there are typically 15 to 20 ducts where glands can produce milk. This offers promising possibilities for moms to produce milk and breastfeed. To start producing more milk, we recommend taking Go-Lacta supplements.

It's always important to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice, but Go-Lacta can be a helpful tool in achieving your breastfeeding goals.

Go-Lacta has helped breastfeeding moms who may be hyperthyroid or hypothyroid . There have been no reported contraindications. It is always recommended to work with your healthcare professional since they work with you in monitoring your thyroid levels.

Numerous studies have shown that Moringa can be helpful for individuals with diabetes. However, it is important to check with your doctor before starting Go-Lacta, especially if you are already taking medication to manage your diabetes. Some patients measure their blood sugar levels after meals to make sure their dosage is appropriate. While we currently have no indication of any negative interactions between Go-Lacta and diabetes medications, it is always best to inform your healthcare provider if you have made any changes or additions to your daily diet or supplement routine.

It takes time to increase to breast milk supply as it varies from person to person. It can take anywhere from a day or two up to two weeks.
While Go-Lacta can be a helpful supplement to increase breast milk supply, it's important to establish a regular breastfeeding routine and ensure you're taking care of yourself by staying hydrated, eating regularly, and getting enough rest.
It's also important to keep in mind that there may be other factors affecting your milk supply, such as fatigue, medication, stress, or changes in daily activities. Additionally, some herbs and spices, like oregano, sage, or peppermint, may have a negative impact on milk supply.
Your lactation consultant or healthcare professional can help you identify any potential factors affecting your milk supply and provide personalized advice on how to increase your milk production. Remember, every breastfeeding journey is unique, and it's okay to ask for help and support along the way.

We are thrilled to share that thousands of mothers have experienced success with Go-Lacta. While no supplement can guarantee results, we are proud to have helped many mothers who previously tried prescription drugs like Domperidone, Reglan or other herbal supplements. Since 2007, we have been committed to providing high-quality products to mothers, and we are honored to have many repeat customers who have returned for their second, third, and even eighth baby.

Go-Lacta was created out of our love for Moringa, and our desire to provide a natural and effective solution to help mothers increase their breast milk supply. While fenugreek is a common herb used for this purpose, it has its limitations.
Taking enough fenugreek to see an increase in milk supply can often result in unwanted side effects, such as a maple syrup odor, stomach sensitivity, diarrhea, gas, and allergic reactions for those with peanut, chickpea, or coriander allergies. These side effects are believed to be caused by the high doses required to be effective.

In contrast, Go-Lacta is made from premium quality Moringa leaves, which are known to be the best and most effective supplement for boosting milk supply. It is also recommended for pregnant women to prepare their bodies for lactation after delivery, ensuring their baby has food in the first few hours and days of life. Moringa leaves are a superfood, providing both mom and baby with extra nutrients to support optimal health.

At Go-Lacta, we believe in offering a natural, safe, and effective solution for mothers seeking to increase their breast milk supply.

Research conducted in Southwestern Senegal has demonstrated the remarkable benefits of moringa leaf powder for increasing breast milk supply in pregnant and breastfeeding women and improving health outcomes for their children.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF have recognized moringa leaves as a powerful and effective natural ingredient for increasing breast milk supply, which is why Go-Lacta has specifically formulated its product with mom and baby in mind.

Extensive health and safety studies conducted at the Noguchi Memorial Medical Research Centre in Ghana have shown that Moringa leaves are not toxic and have no toxic elements. Even when consumed in concentrated forms, no adverse side effects were observed.

However, it's worth noting that Moringa leaves are high in fiber and consuming large amounts may cause digestive discomfort such as bloating, gas, or diarrhea, similar to other green leafy vegetables. It's recommended to consume Moringa leaves in moderation and to consult with a healthcare provider before adding them to your diet, especially if you have pre-existing medical conditions or take medication.

Overall, Moringa leaves are a nutritious and safe superfood that can provide many health benefits when consumed as part of a balanced diet.

Go-Lacta is a 100% vegan superfood that's free from casein, dairy, egg, gluten, wheat, shellfish, corn, soy, peanut, and tree-nut.
While it's a safe and allergen-free option for most people, it's important to note that it's still a food and some individuals may have allergic reactions. If either the mother or the baby experiences any negative reaction after consuming Go-Lacta, it's recommended to discontinue use and consult with a healthcare professional..

Moringa leaves is not only beneficial for adults, but it is also a powerhouse superfood that can support good nutrition in children as well.

In fact, a study conducted by the Department of Science and Technology in the Philippines found that adding just 3 grams of Moringa leaf powder to children's meals each day led to an increase in their height, weight, and iron levels. This demonstrates the incredible potential of Moringa as a nutritional supplement for children who may not be receiving all of the essential vitamins and minerals they need from their diets alone.

It's important to note that while Moringa leaves can be a valuable addition to a child's diet, it's always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional or a pediatrician before adding any new supplements to their routine.

While Go-Lacta has been shown to boost milk supply, it won't directly initiate milk production. Multiple factors work together to signal a woman's body to start producing milk, including hormonal changes during pregnancy and the delivery of prolactin after birth.

It's important to note that anyone can take Go-Lacta, regardless of whether they are breastfeeding or not. Moringa is a nutrient-rich superfood that offers various benefits, including proteins, calcium, essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.

However, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it's always best to consult with your healthcare provider before taking any supplements, including Go-Lacta.
They can provide personalized recommendations based on your health history and specific needs.

No, taking Go-Lacta after you have weaned your baby and stopped breastfeeding will not cause your body to produce milk. The production of breast milk is dependent on hormones and the stimulation from a baby suckling at the breast. Once you stop breastfeeding, your body will naturally stop producing milk. However, you can still enjoy the nutritional benefits of Go-Lacta, which is made from premium quality Moringa leaves. Moringa leaves are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and can provide many health benefits even if you are not breastfeeding.
