Steamed Method (Traditional Chinese Method): The placenta is gently steamed before dehydrating, powdering and placing into capsules. In traditional Chinese medicine, the steaming process is believed to provide warmth as well as balancing energy left in the recovering uterus. The placenta pills produced via this method provide a steady release of energy in the postpartum period, which helps to balance and stabilize hormones and emotions. This method usually produces fewer pills and may require that you take more pills for a longer period of time. If your Group B Strep test (usually completed around 35 weeks) is positive, we require your placenta to be steamed.

Unsteamed Method:  This method eliminates the steaming step.  The unsteamed method is often preferred by proponents of a Raw Diet, based on the idea that heat destroys vital nutrients in food. In this placenta encapsulation method, the placenta is heated at 160 degrees for 24 hours, which may help it to retain most of the benefits it possesses prior to processing. This method of placenta encapsulation often yields a more potent medicine with more hormones and nutrients. Those using this option report a greater a burst of energy upfront and great hormone stabilization. This method typically provides a greater yield of pills.
