M2 Malunggay Tea Drink: Increasing breast milk supply

In 2017, a total of 1,700,618 live births was registered.  Statistics show that among children aged 6-35 months, only 27% were exclusively breastfed, with only 34% of poor children exclusively breastfed.  Breastfeeding, particularly during the first six months of infancy, convey significant immunological and nutritional benefits on infants.   In the olden days, nursing mothers were made to drink malunggay tea or soup for them to lactate more.   

To help nursing mothers boost their milk production, Nature Earth, a company that manufactures health foods, launches the popular M2 Malunggay Tea Drink, which is a combination of malunggay, okra and ginger.    Nature Earth Corp, started out as a backyard operation founded by Filipino couple Corazon “Zonito” and Franz Josef Tamase.   Nature Earth also produces moringa-infused fried noodles called Shing-A-Lings and sweet potato chips.   As part of their corporate social responsibility, Nature Earth helps the Sampaloc Cooperative of Farmers from Tanay, Rizal, by purchasing their turmeric.   Malunggay, meanwhile, are sourced from Bacolod, Pangasinan and Laguna.  Nature Earth dreams of acquiring a one-hectare property to produce more healthy snacks and give millions of people cheaper and healthier food alternatives.

Trusted by mothers, backed by research and studies

Moringa oleifera or Malunggay is a plant that has been praised for its health benefits for thousands of years.  Research has shown that it is very rich in healthy antioxidants and bioactive plant compounds.  Moringa leaves contain many important nutrients, including protein, vitamin B6, vitamin C, riboflavin and iron, may lead to reduced blood sugar levels and can lower your cholesterol levels, potentially reducing the risk of heart disease, and is known to boost up the body immune system.  Moringa leaves are therefore highly nutritious and should be beneficial for people who are lacking in essential nutrients.

In a small regulated study of M2 in a Health Center located in Hagdan Bato Libis Mandaluyong, it was found out that lactating mothers who drank M2 were able to produce 70% more breastmilk after 45 minutes of expression.   The case study was conducted on 12 lactating mothers, ages 18 to 33 years old.  Six were told to drink M2 twice daily, while the other six were told to drink M2 only once a day.  After three months of the study, it was concluded that the mothers who drank M2 twice a day produced more milk that satisfied the needs of their babies.  A nursing mother testified that before drinking M2, she only produced two ounces of milk in a pumping session.  After drinking M2, she collected 20 ounces within just twenty minutes of pumping.  During the case study, no mother who drank M2, and her baby, got sick.  As a result, drinking M2 is recommended to breastfeeding mothers to improve and continuously sustain good quantity of breastmilk.

Ruth Torrevillas, a 26-year-old mother of one, tried to nurse her baby but her milk did not seem enough.  Her lactation consultant advised her to drink M2 Malunggay Tea Drink.  From an initial output of only 10ml, her milk output increased to 60ml in just 15 minutes of expression after drinking M2.  With M2, Ruth, a working mother, can now express a total of 150ml from both breasts. 

In Iloilo and Panay, increasingly more mothers turn to M2 for its lactogenic properties to help them sustain their breastfeeding journey, especially working mothers who need to store milk.
