The Benefits of Consuming the Placenta

Placentophagy - Placental Encapsulation

For centuries, women in many cultures have ingested their babies' placenta post birth, in a variety of ways. Some women feel comfortable creating a special recipe for it, adding it to a smoothie or some women even consume it raw. These methods will work, but they limit the length of time you can store and keep the placenta and are able to utilize the benefits of it. Bring on the best method of ingestion....Encapsulation.

The placenta is dried, ground, and encapsulated. The capsules can then be taken daily for a number of weeks/months. Women reap all of the healthful benefits of a placenta quickly and easily.
Each placenta's hormonal make-up is completely unique to the mother.

Benefits to ingesting your placenta include:

  • Decrease in baby blues and postpartum depression.
  • Increase and enrich breastmilk.
  • Increase in energy.
  • Decrease in lochia, postpartum bleeding.
  • Decrease iron deficiency.
  • Decrease insomnia and/or sleep disorders
