    Default Fenugreek suggestions on how much?

    Can anyone suggest how much fenugreek to take. I have been taking 3 capsules twice a day but I have not noticed an increase.

    I used to take 3 capsules 3 times per day, for 2 weeks, and that worked wonders for me. My lactation consultant said you need to take a lot for it to be effective, much more than the directions on the bottle say.

    I take 2 capsules 3 times a day, and that usually works within a few days. It varies person to person. You know you're taking enough if you smell like maple syrup within a day or two.

    An Indian home treatment for purposes of producing more milk is to boil water with a tablespoon of fenugreek seeds for a few minutes and to drink that water once it's cooled--can also be refrigerated--a few times a day...

    It might taste weird, but it works...

    (I haven't done this but all ladies in my family have...)
