    where can I buy fenugreek seed capsules?

    hi all,
    I read about fenugreek can increase mom's milk supply. I checked out with GNC as well as some of the health food stores, none of them carries this product. can anyone tell me where I can get them in Hong Kong?

    Fenugreek

    Dear Enpitu,

    I used Fenugreek with my second child to increase milk supply and it did work but you have to take it continuously and you will begin to smell a bit like maple syrup. If you are committed to the cause, I would recommend a drug called Motillium (also called Domperidone). You have to order it online (although maybe you can get in HK, not sure) but it works, and has no side effects like Reglan may have. Good luck- it is a very important job you are doing!

    If you don't want the hassle some companies make Tea using it for the same purpose. Look for Mother's Milk tea at Bumps to Babes or other baby shops.

    If you decide to go to an Indian store, Fenugreek is called "methi" in Hindi. They usually sell small bags of dried methi leaves.

    Dear all,

    thank you so much for prompt reply. I also told that at city super, you can get organic fenugreek seed. if we get that instead of the capsule, how should we consume it? should we drink it like tea?
