Placenta Encapsulation 

The popularity in placenta encapsulation is growing and many are becoming intrigued. Why would someone want to consume one of their own organs? Rest assured, you are not the only one nervously Google searching this and squinting your eyes in case "Images" pop up. Research is beginning to be done, only validating the long time knowledge Traditional Chinese Medicine has known & practiced for thousands of years, on the many postpartum benefits of placenta consumption.


Moms report having:

  • improved moods with a reduced rate of postpartum depression

  • a speedier, more smooth recovery

  • raised iron levels 

  • an increased milk supply




Here's why...

The placenta is composed of beneficial hormones, chemicals, iron, and proteins. These healing substances include:
  • Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone: Contributes to mammary gland development in preparation for lactation; stabilizes postpartum mood; regulates post-birth uterine cramping; decreases depression; normalizes and stimulates libido.


  • Prolactin: Promotes lactation; increases milk supply; enhances the mothering instinct.


  • Oxytocin: Decreases pain and increases bonding in mother and infant; counteracts the production of stress hormones such as Cortisol; greatly reduces postpartum bleeding; enhances the breastfeeding let-down reflex.


  • Placental Opioid-Enhancing Factor (POEF): Stimulates the production of your body’s natural opioids, including endorphins; reduces pain; increases well-being.


  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone: Regulates the thyroid gland; boosts energy and supports recovery from stressful events.


  • Corticotropin Releasing Hormone (CRH): Low levels of CRH are implicated in postpartum depression. Regulation of CRH helps prevent depression.


  • Cortisone: Reduces inflammation and swelling; promotes healing.


  • Interferon: Triggers the protective defenses of the immune system to fight infection.


  • Prostaglandins: Regulates contractions in the uterus after birth; helps uterus return to its pre-pregnancy size. Anti-inflammatory effects.


  • Iron: Replenishes maternal iron stores to combat anemia, a common postpartum condition. Increases energy; decreases fatigue and depression.


  • Hemoglobin: Oxygen-carrying molecule which provides a boost in energy.


  • Urokinase Inhibiting Factor and Factor XIII: stops bleeding and enhances wound healing.


  • Immunoglobulin G (IgG): Antibody molecules which support the immune system.


  • Human Placental Lactogen (hPL): This hormone has lactogenic and growth-promoting properties; promotes mammary gland growth in preparation for lactation in the mother. It also regulates maternal glucose, protein, and fat levels.



But are there studies? Or is this all a placebo effect?

Recent studies, conducted in 2016, focused on the amount of micronutrients and hormones found and transferred to mom. Results showed modest concentrations of 14 trace minerals and elements, and 17 hormones, all beneficial in postpartum healing.
