RAW PLACENTA CUBES
Consuming the placenta in its raw state is most beneficial during the immediate postpartum period for internal wound healing, lessening postnatal bleeding and mood balancing.*
When choosing a raw preparation for smoothies, we will prepare and freeze cubes for immediate or future use. These cubes can then be put into fruit smoothies and consumed.
