Hello. I have a question regarding a product that is made up of Chinese herbs. It's called SerenX by Xymogen. I use to use it to help with my anxiety and it works very well for me. However, since being pregnant and now BFing I've held off using it out of fear that it might harm my ds or milk supply. But I am in much need of chilling out these days so Im hoping someone here - maybe an herbalist can tell me if these herbs are safe to use while BFing. Ingredients are:
Rhemannia glutinosa
Schisandra chinensis
Jujube fruit (Zizphus jujube)
Biota seed (biota orientalis)
Dong quai root (angelica sinesis)
Chinese asparagus root (asparagus cochinchinesis)
Ophiopogon japonicus
Scrophularia ningpoensis
White panax (panax ginseng)
Chinese salvia root (salvia miltiorrhiza)
Poria fungus (Poria fungus (poria wolfiporia)
Platycodon root (platycodon grandiflorum)
Acorus Rhizome (acorus gramineus)

For some I just gave both the scientific name and common name hoping this helps. Thank you.

I'm sorry I don't have an answer for you.  You may want to Ask the Expert, Jennifer Karon-Flores.
