Leptaden is an all natural ayurveda that is used to help stimulate lactation for pregnant women with a deficiency or absence of production of breast milk.  Leptaden has various effects on the production of breast milk.  It helps to stimulate, stabilize, and improves the quantity as well as quality of breast milk.  There are two main ingredients of Leptaden.  Jivanti, and Kamboji.

Jivanti is known by it’s botanical name as Leptadenia Reticulata.  This is a branched twining shrub, with small flowers green-yellow.  It grows mainly in Mauritius, Madagascar, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, India, and Malaysia.  Within India it is found in parts of Punjab, and Uttar Pradesh.   The part of the plant which is used is the root.  This root provides many pharmacological actions beside being lactogenic.  It also has estrogeniomimetic, hypertensive, vasodilator, spasmogenic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, and respiratory stimulant effects.

In Ayurveda, Jivanti helps to boost the energy level of the body.  Extracts of the root has been used as an antibacterial and antifungal for common infections.  The leaves and roots have been used for skin infectiosn such as ringworm, wounds, nose, and ear disorders.

The natural effects of Jivanti itself is very useful for the overall protective nature of this root during pregnancy.

Kamboji is a large shrub with the botanical name of Kirganelia reticulata.  This plant can be found in low lying moist habitats in thickets and hedges along rivers in most of India.

In Ayurveda the plant has many medicinal properties.  The leaves of the plant can be used as a diuretic and cooling effects in the form of a paste.  The leaves can be used as a powder to promote healing of ulcers and boils.  A juice made from the leaves of the plant has been used to relieve diarrhoea in infants.  The fruit of the plant has been used as an astringent to the bowels, and as a purgative for treating diseases of the blood.  Children are given a preparation of the root to treat asthma, coughs and catarrh.
