Placenta Encapsulation Services Los Angeles

Placenta encapsulation is the process where your placenta is turned into a powder form and put into pill capsules to be ingested by you postpartum.

The placenta is a remarkable organ full of nutrients that nourished the baby in the womb. Ingesting placenta postpartum can provide nutrients to the mother after birth, the main nutrient being iron.

In addition, the placenta is full of vitamins and minerals such B6 and B12, as well as hormones like progesterone and estrogen. These reproductive hormones drop after you give birth.

Placenta capsules provide support for many common symptoms after birth, such as the baby blues, exhaustion, anxiety, and feeling overwhelmed.

The practice of mothers eating the placenta has been commonplace in many cultures throughout history.

By assisting the restoration of hormonal harmony, placenta capsules provide support for many common symptoms after birth, such as the baby blues, exhaustion, anxiety, and feeling overwhelmed.

Although the FDA has not invested in or sponsored any scientific research on the benefits of consuming the placenta right after birth, it is evident that other mammals have no reservations about eating their own placenta and have been doing so since the beginning of time.

Historically, we are the only mammals who, at some point during our evolution, stopped relying on our placenta as a source of mental and physical healing postpartum.

Since placenta encapsulation (and other types of preparation) started to be offered in western cultures in the last few decades, there have been different schools of thought about how to process the placenta or whether it should be used for other celebratory purposes instead.

Some of the best support for the benefits of placenta encapsulation comes from the numerous testimonies of mothers who decided to consume their placenta after birth and realized what a difference it made during their postpartum period compared to previous births.
