Placenta encapsulation is the centuries-old process of preparing the placenta to be ingested via capsules or pills. It involves careful handling, preparing, dehydrating, grinding, and finally encapsulating in order to be consumed. Possible benefits include increased mood stability; emotional balance; increased milk supply; increased energy levels; decreased anemia; faster recovery from birth; lighter, shorter, and less severe postpartum bleeding; and faster uterine healing.

 Placenta pills contain many vitamins and minerals that may help you to naturally fight off postpartum depression and get you back to feeling “like yourself again”.  Some of these include B6, iron and protein. The placenta is composed of many healing chemicals. The known ingredients that give the placenta its healing properties are:
      • Gonadotrophin: the precursor to estrogen, progesterone and testosterone
      • Prolactin: For the promotion of lactation and aids in bringing in mother’s milk
      • Oxytocin: For decreasing pain & increasing bonding. Promotes let-down reflex in breastfeeding
      • Thyroid stimulating hormone: boosts energy and helps recovery from stressful events
      • Cortisone: combats stress and unlocks energy stores
      • Interferon: stimulates the immune system to protect against infections
      • Prostaglandins: anti-inflammatory
      • Hemoglobin: replenishes iron deficiency and anemia, a common postpartum condition
      • Urokinase inhibiting factor and factor XIII: stops bleeding and enhances wound healing
      • Gammaglobulin: immune booster that helps protect against postpartum infections
