What it is:
In the world of Chinese herbal soups, root + spring's Chinese Herbal Soup Mix for Postpartum Recovery is based on, by far, the most popular and effective formula for new mothers. Widely consumed by women right after delivery, this soup boosts the health of your uterus after birth, helps promote good breast milk flow, assists in snapping your meridian back to shape, and revitalizes the Qi, blood, and the body.
After giving birth, the body is deficient in both Qi and the blood. It is these deficiencies that allow wind to invade the body, causing postpartum cold and blood stasis. Our Postpartum Recovery herbal mix is able to help with these conditions, as well as help release any placental fragments within the uterus, expel toxins, support discharge of lochia, contract and restore the expanded uterus, alleviate painful postpartum uterine contractions, transform blood stasis and generate new blood, and warm the meridians.
During the first week after a birth, miscarriage, or the confinement period, it is vital for the women to pay close attention to the replenishment of nutrients for the body. Our Postpartum Recovery herbal mix plays a key part in helping postpartum women start their path to restoring their bodies to a healthy, sound state. We know the first month with a newborn isn't easy - let us help you take care of you. All you need to do here is add chicken and water.
This soup is most effective when consumed during the week immediately following childbirth, up until one month. This herbal mix should only be consumed during the first month postpartum.
