Some of the benefits of consuming the placenta include:
Contains your natural hormones and can help to balance them
Increase milk supply
Replenish Iron stores
Help to decrease the risk of depression
Can increase your overall energy
Most of the information we have on Placentophagia is anecdotal at this point. I believe in this practice not only as a way to boost energy and stabilize one’s hormones, but as a spiritual practice. An incorporation of the holistic process of the journey into motherhood.
I prepare the Placenta for Encapsulation in a traditional Chinese Medicine way. The warming, steaming and dehydration of the placenta is often found as a palatable way for mamas to ingest it.
It is recommended that the capsules be taken in doses that will have the placenta consumed within a matter of weeks. But for some people, they like to freeze and save for a later time when they need emotional or energetic support, or are experiencing a transition in their lives. Like birth, this is a very personal journey.
