A Double-Blind Randomized Clinical Trial For Evaluation Of Galactogogue Activity Of Asparagus Racemosus Willd
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
In this 1-month randomized controlled trial, 60 women with lactation insufficiency and their infants were assigned to supplementation with Asparagus racemosus Wild capsules (60 mg/kg per day) or placebo capsules containing rice powder. The primary outcome was a change in serum prolactin levels from baseline levels. Maternal and infant weight as well as maternal satisfaction and infant well-being were secondary outcomes. At the end of the study, the mean percent increase for both primary and secondary outcomes were higher among women and infants in the supplement group compared to the placebo group. In the supplement group, prolactin levels increased by 33% compared to 10% in the control group, and mean baby weight in the supplement group increased by 16% compared to 6% in the control group.
