WHY ENCAPSULATE?

"These pills are worth their weight in gold, I have so much energy!"  - Anna

Much scientific research has been carried out on the potential benefits of Placenta consumption by new mums, and papers written on the subject. 

 

This evidence based research can be found by clicking this link :

 

While the  benefits to individuals vary, mothers who have consumed their capsules have experienced all or some of the benefits listed below.

  • Replenished iron and vitamins that can become depleted during pregnancy.

  • Reduced 'baby blues'.

  • Increased energy to cope with the demands of a new baby.

  • Increased breast milk supply.

  • Reduced postpartum bleeding.

  • Increased shrinking back of the uterus.

  • Speeding up of postpartum recovery.

 

The placenta is a rich source of nutrients, hormones and other biochemical substances. 

At around 6-8 weeks of pregnancy the placenta begins producing hormones to help sustain pregnancy. These hormonal levels continually increase during pregnancy, and by the third trimester there are 3 times the normal level of hormones in a pregnant woman's system.

These hormone levels drop significantly around day 4 postnatally; returning back to preconception levels quickly. This is a huge fluctuation going from 3 times the normal level to 'below normal' hormonal level, and this is where the balancing properties of the placenta come into play.  By consuming your placenta, you are essentially putting back into your body those wonderful nutrients and hormones as listed below:

 

  • Gonadotrophin - is the precursor to estrogen, progesterone and testosterone

  • Prolactin - is the hormone involved in stimulating milk production, enhances maternal instinct

  • Oxytocin - is the hormone of love, bonding, protection; promotes feelings of love and maternal bonding between mother and baby; helps uterus to return to normal size whilst reducing post birth bleeding; decreases pain; counteracts the production of stress hormones such as cortisol; enhances the breastfeeding let-down reflex 

  • Prostaglandins - these anti-inflammatory hormones regulate the uterine contractions after birth and helps uterus return to its pre-pregnancy size

  • Placental Opioid-Enhancing Factor (POEF) - this stimulates the production of your body’s natural opioids, including endorphins; reduces pain; increases well being

  • Interferon and Gammaglobulin - both stimulate the immune system to protect against infection

  • Thyroid Stimulating Hormone - regulates the thyroid gland, boosting and balancing metabolism and energy levels

  • Cortisone - combats stress and unlocks energy stores in body

  • Iron - replenishes maternal iron stores to help combat anemia or postnatal iron deficiency; decreases fatigue and depression

  • Haemoglobin - the oxygen carrying molecule vital to energy in the body, clarity in the mind; supportive to the immune system

  • Human Placental Lactogen (hPL) - has lactogenic and growth-promoting properties; promotes mammary gland growth in preparation for breastfeeding; also regulates maternal glucose, protein and fat levels

  • Urokinase Inhibiting Factor & Factor XIII - helps reduce bleeding and enhances wound healing
