Your placenta contains vitamins to help you recover physically and emotionally from your birth experience and can help increase breastmilk supply.
Why Would I Eat My Placenta?
People eat their placentas for many reason: to replenish vitamins, beat the “baby blues” or increase breastmilk supply. It can be eaten raw or grilled but the most common way is dried and ground up in a pill. While clinical studies have been inconclusive on the exact health benefits, the practice of eating the placenta has existed across many cultures for hundreds of years.
The Encapsulation Process
The placenta is transported from the hospital then meticulously cleaned, steamed, thinly sliced and dehydrated for 16+ hours. It is then ground and encapsulated into vegan, gluten- and BPA-free capsules and packaged for safe, dry storage.
