Buchu Resin


Safe substance and/or breastfeeding is the best option.

Flavonoid compound. Flavonoids are phenolic compounds naturally occurring that are abundantly present in all plants and in some seaweed.

They are ingested when drinking fruits, vegetables, tea and red wine, for example. (Serafini 1996)

Most important types are: anthocyanins, chalcons, flavonols, flavones, flavonoids and tannins. 

Attributed anti-oxidant activity and other properties that have not been fully shown yet (Martinez 2016, Morling 2015, Cohen 2012, AESAN 2012), as amelioration of capillary vessel function which is a reason to be used for treatment of venous insufficiency (varicose veins) and prevention of arteriosclerosis.

They appear naturally in the breast milk in amounts related to mother's diet. (Romaszko 2014, Song 2013)

No risk for toxic nor side-effects in humans have been found (AESAN 2012). No problems have been observed in infants whose mothers were treated with troxerutin(Krajnovic 1977)

Some flavonoids such as diosmin and hydrosmin are classified as having low therapeutic utility. (GFD 2011)

Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM team of health professionals, and are based on updated scientific publications. It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it. The pharmaceutical industry contraindicates breastfeeding, mistakenly and without scientific reasons, in most of the drug data sheets.

Jose Maria Paricio, Founder & President of APILAM/e-Lactancia

Your contribution is essential for this service to continue to exist. We need the generosity of people like you who believe in the benefits of breastfeeding.

Thank you for helping to protect and promote breastfeeding.

José María Paricio, founder of e-lactancia.
