Jungle Juice Recipe For Increased Energy and Breast Milk Supply

Jungle Juice is a popular home made drinks recipe that is used for boosting milk supply, and for giving increased energy to breastfeeding moms and moms in labour.

It is also excellent for making sure you are properly hydrated thanks to the electrolytes in Rehidrat, which is essential for making enough milk, especially in the early days of breastfeeding.

Keep in mind that this recipe has high sugar content, so use it to increase your energy levels and breast milk supply when you are feeling low and run down, but take note it is not an every day drink. Check this jungle juice recipe with rooibos for a recipe with less sugar.

This is widely popular among moms, however there is no scientific proof that this works. Here’s the best jungle juice recipe:

Breastfeeding Shakes

    • I have enough hehehehehe….Dont think I need any more 🙂

    • I have used jungle juice before but had no idea that it can be made with rooibos!

      Definitely giving the rooibos a try as I rely on jungle juice for milk supply and energy on those loomey days.

  12. This is amazing thanks for this

  13. Could the fact that I never had colostrum be the reason why I did not produce enough milk? Nothing helped and had to go to the Dr for pills and it was only then I was able to produce

    • Lynne Huysamen

      I don’t know why, I’ve heard lots of people say that all women will get milk… however my mother did not produce any milk for me or my two sisters and she gave up. My older sister was also unable to breastfeed but I am not sure of the details – she did have a breast reduction in her early twenties that may have caused complications.

  14. i have tried this when i had my baby but it never helped wonder what i did wrong

  15. Sound like a great juice would like to give it a try
