WHAT IS PLACENTA ENCAPSULATION?
Placenta encapsulation is the process of preparing the mother’s placenta after the birth of her baby(ies) by dehydrating and then ground and placed into capsules for the mother to ingest as she sees fit. The ingestion of the placenta is known as “placentophagy.”
There are two methods of preparation: Traditional Chinese Method (TCM) and Raw. Please see below for the detailed descriptions of each.
Studies show that the placenta is extremely nutrient rich, high in iron, protein, vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B6 and of course, mother’s own natural hormones, making it perfectly suited for each individual.* Experts agree that ingesting the placenta slowly reintroduces the hormones into the mother’s system and may ease hormonal fluctuations and the side-effects that come with them.*
