I would like to get some support with my mood ( depression/anxiety/irritability) and looking for something other than conventional pharmaceuticals. I came across a supplement called "Joy" from Organic India. I know the brand is reputable, and of course it says not to take while breastfeeding, but so do most supplements. I am wondering if it would be OK to take while breastfeeding. I do not know a healthcare practicitioner around here who is familiar with this kinds of herbs and I was wondering if anyone else has already investigated this.
Bacopa/Brahmi whole herb 202 mg (Bacopa monnieri)
Centella/Brahmi/Gotu Kola 45 mg (Centella asiatica)
Shankpushpi/Bindweed 30 mg (Convolvulus pluricaulis)
Ashwagandha/Wintercherry 23 mg (Withania somnifera)
Also, if anyone has any other supplement ideas for mood that are compatible with breastfeeding I would greatly appreciate them. I am already taking fish oil, magnesium, cod liver oil, vitamin D, vitamin B, and Holy Basil.
