Hello All,<br><br>
I am taking Fenugreek to boost my supply. It's okay, but DS is taking bottles at daycare and my freezer stash is nearly gone. I would like to add Blessed Thistle to the Fenugreek, but I can't find it as a stand alone herb, only in combo with Milk Thistle. Is this okay?<br><br>
Thanks in advance!

Milk thistle is a liver cleanser (so it would be pulling toxins from your liver, which could end up in your milk), so no, it would be preferable to take just the Blessed Thistle. When I was taking Blessed Thistle, I ordered it online.<br><br>
Good luck.

I called all the pharmacies and co-ops in my town and finally found a place that carries Blessed Thistle- call around a little more and maybe you will find a place. If you have a local LLL they might know where to find it. In the meantime, Mother's Milk tea has blessed thistle as an ingredient and it might give you the extra boost you need if you take it as well as your usual fenugreek supplement.
