Nowadays it is very common that you've heard that consuming the placenta after birth, brings great benefits to your health and the health of your baby. This is a trend among new mothers as it is believed that after consuming it you will increase the energy and reduce the risk of developing postpartum depression.

The Placentofagia is the name with which is known the practice of consuming the placenta after childbirth, and a few of their main benefits that you defend those who practice it is that:
  • Prevents postpartum depression
  • Reduces pain and bleeding.
  • Increases the production of breast milk
  • Creates a special bond a mother and child.It is important to add that there are no studies that confirm the benefits of consuming the placenta, although it is recommended by many women around the world.

How do you consume it?

The most common alternatives to consume the placenta is sauteed or in a smoothie, although other mothers put the body in a dehydration and then converted into capsules which can then consume.
The hormonal components of the human placenta are: oestrogen, progesterone, chorionic gonadotropin, placental lactogen, adrenocorticotropin chorionic and relaxin.
It is important to add that consumption of the placenta has been recommended for more than 1500 years, as that in ancient China mixed with human milk and is used as an antidote for the exhaustion, today has been an accelerated growth of this practice, especially in the united States, Canada and Europe.
Each day becomes more common this practice and those who do claim to have received a blow of mind that I needed to recuperate after childbirth and have had great benefits. However, there are those who find it unhygienic and considered disgusting and pointless. What is certain is that we are still in diapers and there really are no studies that support the positive result 100% of ingesting the placenta.
What about you, do you think, what would you do?
