Lactakalm - Digestive Health for Breastfeeding
A mother's milk has its own microbiome, these microbes are transferred to the baby when breastfeeding and can help support the development of their gut health. In some instances, this microbiome can become unbalanced and there is an overgrowth of pathogenic bacteria. This can lead to breast pain and inflammation, making lactation difficult and in some cases, leading to the cessation of breastfeeding.
Lactakalm contains a strain of live bacteria which has been isolated from human breastmilk to support women during breastfeeding.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Lactakalm
Lactakalm is a friendly bacteria supplement, which contains a strain of live bacteria which has been isolated from human breastmilk to support women during breastfeeding.
Do I need to take Lactakalm while breastfeeding if I already eat a healthy diet?
While eating a healthy diet can provide beneficial bacteria, a Lactakalm provides a therapeutic dose of bacteria specifically selected to support breastfeeding mothers.
What supplements should I take when breastfeeding?
If you are breastfeeding, it is important to maintain a healthy and balanced diet to ensure that you are getting all the necessary nutrients for yourself and your baby. However, some supplements may be beneficial for breastfeeding mothers. Here are some commonly recommended supplements:
Multi vitamin: Taking a supplement specifically formulated to support new mothers can help support recovery. We recommend Zita West Revital Essence, which includes important vitamins and minerals selected specifically to support mothers
Vitamin D: Breastfeeding mothers may be at risk of vitamin D deficiency, especially if they have limited sun exposure or live in areas with little sunlight. Taking a vitamin D supplement can help ensure that you and your baby are getting enough of this important nutrient. We recommend Zita West Vitamin D Spray.
Omega-3 fatty acids: Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly DHA, are important for your baby's brain and eye development. We recommend Zita West Vital DHA.
Probiotics: Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that can help support your gut health and may be passed on to your baby through breast milk. Taking a probiotic supplement & eating fermented foods, such as yogurt or kefir, may help promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in your gut.
It is important to talk to your healthcare provider before starting any new supplement to ensure that it is safe and appropriate for you and your baby.
