UpSpring grows Milkflow supplement line
UpSpring is growing its flagship Milkflow line of herbal breastfeeding supplements. The Austin, Texas-based brand has added three products — Milkflow + Electrolytes Drink Mixes, Milkflow Fenugreek-Free Capsules and Milkflow Fenugreek Free Drink Mix.
The company said that the electrolyte offering is designed to help breastfeeding moms restore and replenish, as the body uses up to 25% of its energy producing breastmilk. The mix is available in berry and chocolate flavors.
The Fenugreek-Free Capsules are made with moringa, blessed thistle, fennel and anise to help promote breast milk supply, Upspring said. It offers consumers a different herbal option than its original fenugreek-and-blessed-thistle formula. The Fenugreek-Free Drink Mix is sold in blackberry lime flavor and is made with the same herbal blend as the capsules.
“At UpSpring, we understand that every mom’s body is unique and not all herbals work for every woman, making it important to have as many options as possible,” said Lisa Williamson, co-founder and CEO of UpSpring. “That’s why we are thrilled to now offer Milkflow formulations with and without the herb fenugreek, to give even more moms access to our helpful products — and we are extremely proud to be the first to do so.”
Milkflow first launched in 2015 and currently is carried at Target, Walmart, Walgreens, The Vitamin Shoppe, H-E-B, Meijer and buybuy Baby, as well as online via Amazon.com and UpSpringBaby.com.
