Is Lipovarin Safe During Breastfeeding?
™ weight loss supplements have not been shown to be safe for breastfeeding women (or for anyone, for that matter). The supplements contain many different active ingredients, very few of which have been shown to be safe for use during breastfeeding. Keep in mind that Lipovarin is an herbal supplement and is, therefore, not regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is not required to be proven either safe or effective.
Lipovarin and Breastfeeding: What Does the Research Say?
For many of the active ingredients in Lipovarin products, no research has been done to see if they pass through breast milk or if they would cause any problems in a nursing infant. Breastfeeding is a time of increased caloric and nutritional need for most women, not a time to be dieting. It is important to eat a well-balanced diet while breastfeeding. Lipovarin contains a few different stimulants, which may cause decreased appetite, irritability, and poor sleeping in nursing infants.
Given the unknown risks of using Lipovarin while breastfeeding (and the lack of scientific evidence to suggest the Lipovarin is effective), it seems that the risks of using the supplement exceed any possible benefits, especially for breastfeeding women.
