PLACENTA REMEDIES

Placenta consumption is an ancient medicinal practice, rediscovered and cherished by new mothers. It’s the root of your baby’s origin and the tree that gave your baby life. There are two primary methods of preparation for encapsulating placenta: the Raw method and the Steamed method. 

Raw/Dried
Placenta Encapsulation

The Basics

  • The placenta is sliced, fully dehydrated, ground into a fine powder and placed in vegetarian capsules.
  • Pill yield: approximately 170 capsules from a 450g placenta (average size).

 All the goodness

  • Since the placenta is not steamed (like TCM method), the pill yield is quite a bit higher.
  • Mother’s report increased energy and milk supply and a reduction in post birth bleeding.
  • Documented practice for over 50 years.

Steamed Placenta Encapsulation (TCM)

The Basics

  • The Steamed method seeks to warm, nourish and tone the body tissues (adding yang energy or heat).
  • The placenta is steamed with chilli, lemon and ginger and dehydrated until fully dry. The dried placenta is then ground into a fine powder and placed in vegetarian capsules.
  • Pill yield: approximately 130 capsules from a 450g placenta (average size).
  • Documented practice for over 1500 years.

 All the goodness

  • Steaming is more likely to kill any surface bacteria on the placenta.
  • Mother’s report mood stabilising qualities, increased milk supply, reduction in post birth bleeding.
