I want to assume all herbs are safe while breastfeeding, but everything I've looked up online says that they are not. I'm assuming this is because theres been no FDA "testing" on them.

I'm currently bf'ing my 3 month old son and am trying to figure out if the following herbs are safe to take. Any advice or knowledge on them is appreciated as well as direction to reputable websites that have the info I'm looking for TIA!!!

Horny Goat weed


Macuna pruriens

Polypodium vulgare

Tongkat Ali

Saw Palmento

Muira puama


Panax Gensing
