What is Placenta Encapsulation?
Placenta encapsulation is a process whereby the placenta is converted into easy-to-take capsule form. Many cultures have a ritual for consuming or honoring the placenta after birth. Placenta encapsulation is a more Westernized approach to placentophagy in an effort to help moms recover smoothly and quickly after giving birth. See Placentophagy
Here's the science...
The known ingredients in the placenta (believed to aid in healing) are:
*Gonadotrophin - the precursor to estrogen, progesterone and testosterone
*Prolactin - promotes lactation
*Oxytocin - for pain and bonding; produced during breastfeeding to facilitate bonding of mother and infant. In pharmaceutical form this is a very addictive drug because it promotes a feeling of connectedness with others and is often referred to as the "love" hormone
*Interferon - stimulates the immune system to protect against infection
*Thyroid Stimulating Hormone - boosts energy and helps recovery from stressful events
*Cortisone - combats stress and unlocks stores of energy
*Prostaglandins - anti-inflammatory
*Hemoglobin - replenishes iron deficiency and anemia
*Gammaglobulin - immune booster that helps protect against postpartum infections
*Urokinase Inhibiting Factor & Factor XIII - stops bleeding and enhances wound healing
