Medical nutrition brand Valens Nutrition is proud to introduce its latest product: LACTAMAMA, a complete nutrition drink designed to support breastfeeding mothers’ lactation needs.
A complete nutrition supplement for lactating mothers, LACTAMAMA contains a blend of key ingredients to support breastfeeding, such as Fenugreek, Lecithin and HMO (Human Milk Oligosaccharides), which could help to improve milk production and quality, and provide overall nutritional support to breastfeeding mothers at the same time.
Developed with the Complete Lacta-Support formula, LACTAMAMA is also a complete nutrition supplement that contains all the nutrients required in a serving, including 28 vitamins and minerals, to improve a mother’s recovery from childbirth while supporting lactation needs.
Fenugreek, which is a natural herb proven to boost breast milk volume significantly³, is a key ingredient of Valens’ LACTAMAMA. To further support breast milk quality and production, the product also includes PromOat® Beta Glucan, as well as HMO (Human Milk Oligosaccharides) which helps to improve gut microbes and strengthen the immune system¹.
Clogged milk ducts and mastitis are some common problems faced by lactating mothers, which often deter some mothers from breastfeeding. To prevent and alleviate clogged milk ducts, LACTAMAMA also contains Soy Lecithin that helps to reduce breast milk’s viscosity².
In addition, nursing mothers often experience hunger after breastfeeding, and therefore require more nutritious, wholesome food and nutrients. Especially for busy working mothers, where finding or preparing healthy food choices may be a challenge. LACTAMAMA not only contains 28 types of vitamins and minerals, but also all essential nutrients such as protein, calcium, and folic acid. Complete and convenient, LACTAMAMA can be used effortlessly either as a healthy snack or a meal on its own!
“A mother’s breast milk is superior above all for an infant, especially in the first 6 months. This is why Valens wants to do our part to encourage and support breastfeeding,” said Ms Jennifer Wu, dietitian and product manager of Valens Nutrition.
“In order to encourage mothers to breastfeed, it’s very important for them to have a positive breastfeeding experience, as this also helps to produce good quality breast milk, and induce greater bonding between mother and child,” explained Wu.
“However, some mothers may encounter challenges such as clogged milk ducts, mastitis, and insufficient milk volume, which can often be discouraging to breastfeed. With LACTAMAMA’s Complete Lacta-Support formula, we hope this will help to make the breastfeeding experience as positive and pleasant as possible.”
Free from added sugar, preservatives and artificial flavouring, LACTAMAMA is also suitable for vegetarians.
LACTAMAMA will be made available at most community pharmacies in May 2023. Learn more about LACTAMAMA here: https://valensnutrition.com/product/lactamama/
