QUESTIONS?

We're here to help. If you've got questions about Lacto, let us know at hello@femininbotanik.com

What does Lacto taste like?

Lacto has a minty dark chocolate taste, but not as you know it. The bites are based in dates and seeds, and some of our less tasty ingredients (like seaweed and algae) are micro-encapsulated in ingredients like almond butter and citrus fibre. A touch of peppermint oil keeps the aftertaste minty fresh. You can read more about what's inside on the ingredients page.

When will I feel the benefits?

If you've been breastfeeding for some time and have symptoms of depletion, you might experience benefits like increased energy, plumper skin and improved mood within weeks. Longer term benefits like metabolic function, cognition and bone health will take longer to shift the dial on, and may result in no difference in how you feel - and that's OK.

Water soluble vitamins like folate and B12 start working in your body immediately, while omega 3 fatty acids and iodine take a bit longer to impact your baselines. If you were deficient in D3 on starting, it will find its way into your brain the next day.

If you don't feel anything right away, know that by hitting the recommended nutrient intake levels every day, you're protecting your health both now and into the future.

Does Lacto need to be refrigerated?

Lacto is made fresh, unlike other vitamins and supplements, so has a much shorter shelf life. It will keep for 6 weeks from the delivery date without refrigeration. If you want your Lacto to last longer we recommend freezing it to preserve the nutrient content. Frozen it will last 4 months.

MUCH NEEDED OPTION IN AUS

Lacto was definitely a welcome addition to my diet. I’ve had a hard time finding high-quality nutritional supplements that are okay for breastfeeding in Australia, let alone a plant-based ones. The main thing I was interested in with Lacto was having more bio available, natural ingredients, but the taste was a nice surprise! Great peppermint choc flavour. I also found it was a good way to boost calories for breastfeeding that I didn’t have to think about because I knew it was all good stuff.

MINT CHOC SUPER TREATS!

I look forward to two of these with my afternoon cuppa everyday! They are absolutely delicious minty chocolatey goodness. I have to hide them from my husband.

I’ve been taking them for 15 days now and my skin is definitely plumper and energy levels have improved. Love the fact there’s b12 in a vegan product too. Can’t wait to see the long term benefits.

BEST BREASTFEEDING SUPPLEMENT I'VE FOUND

Looks great, tastes amazing! It's so nice to have a breastfeeding supplement that I know is all natural and not made synthetically. Having never been able to stomach pills I am so happy to have found a supplement I actually enjoy taking. I have to hide them from my boyfriend so they don't all get eaten! Would 100% recommend.
