Placenta Encapsulation

Simple Encapsulation Process


Two methods of preparation are available: 

  • Steamed akin to the Traditional Chinese Method - The steamed method helps more with emotional energy, though it still has a positive impact on physical energy as well. It is safe to use for frozen placentas. 


  • Raw - This method requires that the placenta be very fresh (within 48 hrs), this method maintains the protein and enzymes that naturally occur. Raw is the inverse of steamed; it helps more with the physical energy, though it still has a positive impact on the emotional energy as well.

  • Placenta is then dehydrated for 16+ hours before grinding into powder + encapsulated.

  •  The number of capsules will vary based on placenta size. On average 60-200 capsules can be expected.
