The fruits from this palm tree with a high content of fatty acids (oleic, lauric, myristic, linoleic and linolenic acids) are used. They also contain flavonoids and phytosterols (beta-sitosterol) that exert both an antiandrogenic and estrogenic action It is used for treatment of prostate hyperplasia. Also used, however on a poor scientific basis, for treatment of androgenic alopecia and hirsutism (Murugusundram 2009, Rossi 2012, Wessagowit 2016).. It has been related to some problems such as hormonal disruption when it was used in girls (Morabito 2015), but mostly without serious side effects (Agbabiaka 2009). At latest update no published data on excretion into breast milk were found. No likely risk when topically used, whenever it is not applied on the chest.A moderate consumption would not represent a risk while breastfeeding. It may be prudent to avoid using it during the neonatal period (within first month after birth) and in cases of prematurity. Cautions when taking herbal teas:1. Make sure it is obtained from a reliable source: reportedly, poisonings have occurred due to confusion after using another plant with toxic effects, some others contain heavy metals that may cause poisoning and others may cause food poisoning due to contamination with bacteria or fungi.2. Do not take it excessively. "Natural" products are not always good in any amount: plants contain active substances from which are made many compounds of our traditional pharmacopoeia that can cause poisoning if consumed in exaggerated quantities or for long periods.
Shrub leaves are used. It contains arbutoside or arbutin as an active substance, also, tannins, flavonoids, ursolic acid and hydroquinone. The Commission E of German Ministry of Health approves it as a diuretic and anti-inflammatory medicament for the urinary tract. As a diuretic drug it may decrease breast milk production. When took in high amount it can irritate the uterus and hydroquinone may be toxic for the liver.

On latest update no relevant published data on breastfeeding were found. Side effects and toxicity have not been tested, therefore its use would be preferably avoided or as much use it infrequently. Topical use is compatible with breastfeeding whenever it not used on the nipple. Stems of horsetail are used. It contains mineral salts (Sílicium, Potassium), flavonoids and steroids. Unproven effects are: diuretic, wound healing for burning injuries. Prolonged or abusive use may produce gastritis, vomiting, sea-sickness or stupor. May be confused with Equisetum palustre which is toxic due to that it contains Thiaminase and be cause of severe Vitamin B1 deficiency. A case possibly related to the appearance of Autism after the prolonged use in pregnancy has been described.

Gray powder or metal, odorless. There is a risk of asthma crisis if cobalt powder is inhaled. It can be a cause of skin, ocular and respiratory tract irritation. Acetate, sulfate, trioxide and nitrate cobalt salts are potentially carcinogenic. Mandatory measures to prevent inhalation (room air extraction and respiratory protection) and ingestion (avoid eating, drinking or smoking in the work place). The industry must ensure a Threshold Limit Value (TLV) (TWA as well) less than 0.05 mg/m3 (cobalt salts less than 0.002 mg/m3). Biological Exposition Index (BEI) on the last labor week day: 15 micrograms/L in the urine, 1 microgram/L in the blood. Benefits of breastfeeding are largely more important than risk related to the presence of mild level environment pollutants in human milk, in many instances, they are at lower content than those found in cow’s milk or other foods. (Codex alimentarius FAO-WHO).
Various calcium salts (Acetate, Carbonate, Chloride, Citrate, Phosphate, Gluceptate, Glucobionato, Lactate, Laxctobionato Pidolate, Silicate) are used in the management of hypocalcemia, supplements for treating calcium deficiency states and antacids ( Carbonate and Silicate) Daily requirement of calcium during lactation are 1 g (1.3 g in children under 20 years).Calcium supplements in the diet does not affect the concentration of calcium in milk.Excessive intake of calcium is not good for health. During lactation, consumption of calcium should not exceed 2.5 g a day. WHO List of Essential Medicines 2002 states that it is compatible with breastfeeding.

Avoid using it on the breast or cleanse thoroughly before nursing.
A polymer made out of silicon-oxygen-methyl combination with a high molecular weight, water repellent and low superficial tension. It is used in many ways (dimethicone, simethicone, -see specific items)orally to treat infant colic and flatulence; as pediculicide, in cosmetic creams and lotions and skin protectants as to prevent ulcers and scars; arthroplasties, retinal detachments and reconstruction or cosmetic surgery as injections and implants. Silicone is widely distributed in our environment with several cosmetic and medicinal uses. No evidence of toxicity on human tissues has been shown. A 1994 report on immunological side effects in infants breastfed by mothers with silicone implants, was denied categorically by means of meta-analysis and other work. The absorption by oral or dermal route is negligible. Both a high molecular weight and polymer molecular structure make it practically impossible excretion in the milk and hence a significant amount of intestinal absorption by the infant. Those circumstances make silicone implants safe for lactation even if broken or manufacturing fault (Poly Implant Prothèse, PIP). After extensive analysis of such silicone prosthesis, where lack of health risk was demonstrated, it can be concluded that many of the initial recommendations published lacked scientific validity, including that carriers of such prosthesis should not breastfeed. Silicon levels in blood and milk of women with implants (55 ng / ml) are similar to those of women without implants (51 ng / ml), 13 times lower than that found in cow's milk (709 ng / ml) and 80 times lower than in commercial infant formulas (4403 ng / ml). American Academy of Pediatrics: Product usually compatible with breastfeeding. To view other possible effects on breastfeeding of breast implant unrelated to silicone, see the term 'Augmentation Mammoplasty'. See below the information of these related products:
