Turmeric and ginger
by: Tracy

Hi Caitlin

Ginger can be taken in small amounts as well as turmeric. Turmeric is often used to prevent breast infections and to increase supply. I would not advise more than half a tsp of turmeric per day. Ginger is a lactogenic food substance, so also used to increase milk supply. You can definitely drink this tea, as long as you are not taking in excessive amounts of these substances. Everything in moderation.

Hope this helps
