There have been several studies that show that the soluble fibre in fenugreek seeds can  reduce the absorption of dietary fat as well as aid appetite control by creating a sensation of “fullness.”

Breastfeeding Tea – The Story of New Mama Breastfeeding Herbal Tea


The Story of New Mama – Breastfeeding Tea

Breastfeeding Herbal Tea - New Mama

The Mama of Mama Tea, Anna Simpson, started Mama Tea whilst she was breastfeeding her second baby. Breastfeeding is one of the subjects that we feel is completely up to each individual woman to decide but there is no doubt that it is beneficial for both mama and baby.

Anna developed the delicious New Mama breastfeeding natural herbal tea to help women with their breast milk supply. So, what is the story of New Mama Breastfeeding herbal tea

The Start of the Story- Ingredients

Anna made sure there were some fantastic herbs in New Mama to help women to breastfeed their babies. She blended three “galatagogues” into the tea.

We have Nettle, Fennel and Fenugreek, all of which prompt the body to create breast milk and increase supply of breast milk.

Nettle Tea - Breastfeeding Tea - New Mama

Nettle Leaf – Urtica Dioca

Familiar to most of us as something that stings us when we’re out in the countryside, nettle leaves are also have lots of uses in herbal medicine. Nettle leaf is a powerful “galactagogue” that helps to produce breast milk and breast milk production,

History of Nettle

Stinging nettles were once used in a rather bizarre treatment known as urtication which involved beating paralysed limbs with stinging nettles in an attempt to stimulate sensations. The same remedy was also recommended for rheumatic pains while the Romans reputedly planted the small annual continental nettle (U. pilulifera) along British roads because they believed the country was so cold they would need to beat their bodies with nettles to keep warm. Nettles sting because the hairs on their stems and leaves contain histamine which is a potent skin irritant.

Fennel Tea - Breastfeeding Tea - New Mama

Fennel Seeds – Foeniculum Officinalis

Fennel symbolises longevity, courage and strength, the seeds are a rich source of minerals and nutrients. This herb is also a fantastic “galactagogue” that helps to create breast milk production and encourage breast milk production.

History

The Greeks called fennel “Marathron” which is derived from the herb meaning “to grow thin” and it seems to have been used as an early slimming aid. The Roman physician Galen classified it as hot and dry.

Fenugreek Tea - Breastfeeding Tea - New Mama

Fenugreek Seeds – Trigonella Foenum-Graecum

Fenugreek is familiar from Indian and Middle Eastern cookery and the herb gives a spicy flavour to curries, pickles and garnishes.

History

The herb rather than seeds, known as hilba, is used in tea in modern Egypt as a remedy for spasmodic abdominal pain – due to both digestive upsets and menstruation. In Ayurveda the plant (known as methi) is regarded as a good remedy in convalescence and debility helping to stimulate liver function and ease indigestion. The Chinese also regard fenugreek (Hu Lu Ba) as a kidney remedy – to warm the kidneys, dispel cold and relieve pain.

Anna was also conscious that many women suffer from mastitis during breastfeeding so she also blended red clover into the New Mama tea as this is proven to be an effective remedy for mastitis.

Anna also wanted to help women suffering with the baby blues so she also blended lemon balm in the New Mama tea to help mamas.

The Middle of the Story – Reviews

Reviews of New Mama breastfeeding herbal tea

The story of our breastfeeding tea would not be complete without looking at what some of our customers have said about New Mama tea. A customer once said to Anna – “This New Mama breastfeeding tea is feeding my baby” – it is comments like that, that make the Mama tearful and make Mama Tea the brand it is.

I was a bit dubious about this one as I’m not a fennel fan, but once I tasted it, wow … there is a real liquorice flavour that is delightful and leaves your mouth feeling alive and refreshed.

When I was breastfeeding my daughter I got to the point where I felt I wanted to naturally increase my milk supply and took Fenugreek supplements (which I felt really helped with my supply), this tea has the added advantage that it contains fennel, fenugreek and nettle, which are all galactagogues – herbs which help to promote milk production and flow.

I’m a little bit addicted to this herbal tea as I’m a big liquorice fan and will also be giving fennel another go!

New Mama:A lovely fennel, liquorice and lemon balm blend. A delicious breastfeeding tea that helps increase the milk supply.

Tried new mama for the 1st time at the secc! It was so good I had to buy some!! Will definitely be popping along to my nearest Tesco to get some more!!! A lovely aftertaste unlike most others!! As a breastfeeding mum it’s great to know this is beneficial for me & baby!!

I bought the New Mama tea and was a little scared when I opened the box because the smell was so strong! I shouldn’t have been as it was DELICIOUS!! I would recommend this product to anyone and have bought some for friends baby shower gifts too. Great customer services too by the way. Xxxx 

We have many more and will share them all on our website….if New Mama breastfeeding tea has meant something to you, please let us know @info@mamatea.com

Nettle tea and me!


Have you ever done that thing where you read a magazine article and think that thing they’re talking about will sort me out/change my life/make me slimmer only to discover it isn’t the miracle answer you hoped for? Well a few years ago that was me and nettle tea.

nettle tea

I read an article about how nettle was good for improving your liver function and at the time I was socialising a lot and felt my liver and body were taking a bit of beating with what seemed to be a constant flow of alcohol and rich food, so nettle tea it was, this would be my saviour. I duly headed out to the nearest deli and bought some, then it was straight back home full of anticipation for my new found friend. Long story short made a cup of tea and couldn’t drink it- it was so disgusting! Romance over, the box of tea went to the back of the cupboard.

A few weeks later I was visiting a friend and I was recounting the story of my brief affair with nettle tea and low and behold does she not produce a box from her cupboard with a pretty much identical story!

Nettle has traditionally been made into a “spring tonic” to cleanse the body and it is known to have diuretic properties, hence it’s role as a cleanser and the thought that it aids the function of the liver. This all being said if it’s not in a palatable form, we’re (or I’m) not going to benefit from it.

new mama

Enter Mama Tea and more specifically New Mama, which contains nettle. The Mama has made it palatable, more than palatable in fact it’s enjoyable! Okay that’s a wee bit of shameless plug for our teas but the story above is true and it is also true that Mama Tea has worked hard to find a way to make herbal tea taste great at the same time as capturing the goodness of the herbs. So don’t be put off herbal tea by one bad experience, give Mama Tea a go!
