I honestly believe that millennials are being so lucky to be mothers at this time and year. Everything is always readily available — information, Grab rides, grocery deliveries, indoor drying without the filthy smell, robo-floor cleaners, easy-to-open, quick-cook — literally everything you could think about to make our lives as mothers are already in the market! Do you agree?
I am a proud mom in this modern day with two adorable daughters. I have been breastfeeding my first child for almost two years when I got pregnant with my second child. I started then to worry if my milk supply would be enough for both my babies. I checked on healthy products or supplements that will help me sustain breastfeeding a young toddler and a newborn.
You probably heard how Malunggay works on matters like this. I take my daily dose from Vpharma Mega-Malunggay capsule and Mother Nurture Malunggay Coffee Mix every morning.
But I am really happy to have tried out M2 Malunggay Tea Drink and their malunggay snacks too!
What is it?
M2 Malunggay is a healthy drink formulated with the combination of Moringa, Ginger and Lady Finger. M2 is a natural, healthy source for vitamins, minerals, protein, antioxidants, and other important compounds that your body relies on to stay healthy and could also help boost breast milk. It is known to be rich in Iron, Calcium, Potassium and Beta Carotene. It is approved by the Food and Drug Authority as a healthy drink.
How does it taste?
It does not have caffeine. It is made only with fresh and natural ingredients. NO TEA and NO CAFFEINE.
It does not taste bitter. In fact, my daughter Yana loves it so much! It is actually sweet because of the muscovado that helps enhance the flavor. It is being compared to the taste of gulaman juice. I honestly didn’t expect it to be this delicious so I was honestly surprised! What a refreshingly nutritious drink!
How is it healthy?
Here are the three major ingredients of M2 Malunggay:
- A natural organic source of over 90 vitamins and minerals.

Does it really work on increasing breast milk?
One best thing I like about M2 Malunggay products is that they specifically aim to BOOST BREAST MILK SUPPLY. For a tandem feeding mom like me, that is very very important.
Study shows that 11 out of 12 moms who drink M2 Malunggay has a significant effect on their breast milk production. There are also a lot of testimonials shared on their Facebook Page with 115k followers saying their products really worked and helped them on their lactation journey.
As for me, taking this daily along with my malunggay supplement plus a healthy diet and lots of water, so far we’re good. The girls are getting a nice and continues supply of breastmilk.
Do you have to prepare it?
It is so easy to make! Busy moms like me need not worry about preparation time. Simply add 4 tbsp of M2 concentrate in 320ml glass of water and you’re done! I normally add a slice of lemon and it instantly makes my drink more refreshing. It can be served hot or cold. But the good thing is it’s also available in Ready-to-Drink bottles so you can also bring it on-the-go!
How much is it?
It is very affordable too since 1 Liter can make up to 17 glasses! And take note of this, one (1) glass of M2 is equivalent to 8 moringa capsules!

Right now, I am happy to announce that we have been going through tandem feeding with flying colors! Amaria is now 3.9 years old and Mariana is 1.5 years old.
If you are a breastfeeding mom like me who feeds milk monsters, having a nutritious drink and even snacks made with malunggay is never a bad idea. Try them out if you haven’t yet! If you already did, let me know what you think about their products in the comments. Happy breastfeeding!
