Placenta Encapsulation

Placenta Encapsulation & Remedies

Nature’s gift for every new mother – a supplement perfectly titrated to your needs
Your placenta is an organ of life, it has fed and supported your baby thoughout pregnancy and is brimming with iron, amino acids, fats, stem cells and growth factors which I believe are the perfect replenishment following the rigour of birth.

During and after birth a new mother will lose between 200-1000mls of blood. Some of this blood loss is part of the physiological reduction in blood volume after birth but this blood loss can cause anaemia, leaving a new mum feeling tired, faint and exhausted. Iron is required for oxygen transfer, which in turn is needed for healing and recovery.

The placenta may benefit a new mother in many ways it:

  • speeds up the healing process
  • reduces blood loss
  • improves hormonal balance i.e reducing symptoms of baby blues and postnatal depression
  • speeds up milk production and increases quantity of milk

The most important nutrients found in rich supply in the placenta include:

  1. Stem Cells and Growth Factors
  2. Iron – essential for oxygen absorption in the cells
  3. Vitamins B6 – aids in the making of antibodies
  4. Vitamin E – for healing damaged skin cells
  5. Hormones – including oxytocin, human growth hormone, progesterone and oestrogen and relaxin
  6. Corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) – responsible for reducing stress levels
  7. Cytokins –trigger cell metabolism, healing and renewal of damaged cells and tissue
  8. Various remedies can be made from your placenta. These include: capsules, essence, tincture, homeopathic remedies and smoothies.
