How much is recommended per day to increase milk supply?
The average 6-month-old drinks about a quart of milk daily, 90% of which is water so the better hydrated your body the better it performs. One quart is equal to 32 fl oz and the equivalent to three 11.2 oz containers or 1 Liter of Greater Than. However, feedback varies and some that we've received suggests 11 oz to 20 oz a day. Greater Than is not a cure nor replaces any sort of consultation with a Dr or lactation consultant, however, many Moms are finding Greater Than very beneficial for a variety of reasons that does support an increase in milk supply. Case in point it's really about finding what works best for you along with staying well hydrated which is good for both Moms & babies, but especially Moms.
Which one should I drink to increase my breast milk?
This result is not specific to any one flavor or item. We're here to provide an alternative & healthful solution for Mothers of all types. Nursing Moms do have increased fluid needs that reflect the volume of breast milk the baby consumes.
On average in the US that could be as much as a quart a day OR two to three times that volume with twins! Lactation is also associated with an increase in thirst to help ensure that Mom stays well hydrated. One key to hydration is electrolytes and Greater Than has a lot of electrolytes along with being made from real juices and organic coconut water, so it tastes great and is low sugar and lower calorie -- something our athletes (and moms) seem to love.
We'd not be sharing any of this if we weren't receiving such wonderful feedback. Everything we do share is straight from our customers. So, for many, that means using Greater Than to compliment their feeding routines and busy lifestyles. Greater Than is not a cure nor replaces any sort of consultation with a Dr or lactation consultant, however, many Moms are finding Greater Than very beneficial for a variety of reasons that may include an increase in milk supply. The moral to this story is that staying well hydrated is good for both Moms and babies, but especially Moms.

Is the coconut strong in this? I like coconut flavor but I don’t like coconut water?
Thank you for this question. We're asked this often & have seen this feedback in our comments that may answer your question. For example, this is a real customer testimonial from Lee X.: "I ABHOR coconut water. I cannot say this loudly enough. But this is oddly good. Yes there is a bit of coconut water taste but there is a sweet saltiness that somehow works. I have also found that temperature makes a HUGE difference in flavor and palatability. Definitely try chilled or ice cold."

How will Greater Than aid in my recovery after a workout?
Greater Than is an ideal recovery beverage. It provides the body with natural occurring carbohydrates and electrolytes. The sugar from juices is a carbohydrate that fuels muscles. The electrolytes replenish what your body has lost in sweat. Sweat contains key minerals and it is important to replenish those. Drinking water isn't always enough. Electrolytes are key for performance and recovery, and the main electrolytes are sodium chloride and potassium.
Why is Greater Than better than water?
Greater Than is better than water because water doesn't have electrolytes. In fact not even "smart waters" have what your body needs to replenish. People can cramp and get dehydrated in spite of drinking water. There is a reason salt tablets exist. Replenish the right electrolytes that your body needs, salt and potassium.
Should I drink Greater Than before, during or after working out?
Greater Than isn't limited to one occasion for use. It's a a functional sports drink that works all the time. We recommend drinking when thirsty, and definitely post work out. Replenish what's lost in sweat by drinking Greater Than. Your body needs these minerals so it's prepared for the next adventure.
