INFORMATION

Why should I consider consuming my placenta?

Dried placenta powder was recognised as a potent medicine in Europe for centuries and used to treat and cure many ailments, mostly those surrounding birth. However since the late 19th century, most natural birthing methods have been replaced by modern birthing techniques, losing along the way many valuable traditions practiced for centuries. The benefits of consuming the placenta are being rediscovered and scientists are beginning to study placentophagy. Today there is profound anecdotal evidence and scientific studies that suggest consuming the placenta can be just as beneficial for humans as it is for other mammals. Testimonials from our clients reveal that consuming the placenta after birth may improve energy levels, increase milk production and slow or stop postpartum haemorrhaging, thus creating an overall healthier post-birth recovery.

What is so special about my placenta?

The placenta has long been thought of as a magical part of the creation of a baby. This incredible organ is uniquely designed for your baby and is an integral part of any pregnancy and birth. The placenta physically connects you to your unborn baby feeding essential oxygen, nutrients and vitamins. During and after birth women lose 1/8-1/10 of their blood supply from the bleeding wound left inside the uterus, where the placenta was attached during the pregnancy. We believe the mammalian placenta was made to be consumed and make up for this loss by giving the new mother essential fats, proteins, vast amounts of iron and essential hormones to heal wounds and aid the body in self recovery after birth.

Will placenta capsules help prevent the ‘Baby Blues’ and/or Post-Natal Depression?

The ‘baby blues’ are a known symptom of birth and mothers are told to expect to feel sad, anxious and very emotional around the third day after the birth, usually when the milk engorges the breasts. These symptoms can sometimes develop into post-natal depression. Studies have proven that the symptoms of post-natal depression are linked with the severe lack of essential nutrients such as vitamin B6 and hormone CRH (our stress reducer hormone), both which are of high supply in the placenta. Consuming the placenta in raw smoothies or in capsules is thought to nourish the mother, replacing lost essential nutrients and hormones following birth and may entirely prevent the ‘baby blues’ and post-natal depression.

The most important nutrients found in rich supply of the placenta include:

  • Growth Factors
  • Iron – Essential for oxygen absorbtion in the cells
  • Vitamins B6 – Aids in the making of antibodies
  • Vitamin E – For healing damaged skin cells
  • Oxytocin Hormone – Essential for facilitating birth and breastfeeding
  • Corticotropin Releasing Hormone (CRH) Responsible for reducing stress levels
  • Cytokines – Fibroblasts that trigger cell metabolism healing and replacing damaged cells and tissue
  • Cortison produced for depression
