Jungle Juice Recipe – Increased Energy and Breast Milk Supply

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

When I was breastfeeding my first baby I heard about jungle juice and I made it a few times. It tastes refreshing and gave me a wonderful energy boost when I really needed it. It is not easy to keep your energy levels up and to stay hydrated after the birth of your baby when you are breastfeeding and this remedy really helped me in the early days.

Keep in mind that this recipe has high sugar content, which can lead to thrush so use it to increase your energy levels when you are feeling low and run down, but it is not an every day drink.

This is widely popular among moms, however there is no scientific proof that this works.

  1. This sounds interesting, I would like to try it. But I’m wondering what the rescue remedy does! Also what is schlehen berry elixier and where do I get it??

    • Rescue remedy is I believe a herbal calming remedy. The Berry Elixir you can get from a pharmacy. I got it at Saldanha Pharmacy, but I am sure they have it at one of the Langebaan ones. If they don’t they can probably order it in for you.

    • 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.

    My friend brought me this with my first baby. It was good for milk supply but when I did drink it I noticed it burned more when I went to the toilet,, as I had an episiotomy..as if it was more acidic.. When I just had water It was better

  4. I also drank jungle juice.
    The 10 drops of rescue i would put in my glass of jungle juice not in the bottle and must say it kept me calm.
