Why should I encapsulate & consume my placenta?

Nearly every mammal on earth consumes their placenta after giving birth and many human cultures around the world routinely do too! There are many reasons why – here are some of the most commonly reported benefits in humans:

  • Increased energy and alertness
  • Better overall mood
  • Fewer instances of “baby blues”
  • Feeling more balanced or centered
  • Increased milk supply

The Encapsulation Process

We process placentas for encapsulation using a technique based on the Traditional Chinese Medicinal Method

  • We start by gently prepping and steaming the placenta over a pot filled with lemon, jalapeno, and ginger
  • The placenta is then sliced thinly and set to dehydrate for up to 24 hours
  • Once it is fully dry, it is ground into a fine powder and filled into vegetarian capsules which are then stored in a glass jar
  • The capsules are then taken by the birthing parent as needed
