Is it safe to take Brazilian seed while breastfeeding?

There are no studies that show the safety of Brazilian seed while breastfeeding. Herbal preparations are not regulated by the U.S. FDA and could pose a risk to mothers and/or infants due to high doses which can create toxic levels in the body, or affect the absorption of other medications you are currently taking.

If you still have questions or doubts, be sure to talk to your lactation consultant!
