There are a few scientific studies on the benefits of placenta encapsulation however traditional wisdom and anecdotal evidence suggest potential benefits to ingesting the placenta include
- Balancing hormone levels
- Improve iron levels
- Increased energy
- Help increase supply of breastmilk
- Helps the uterus return to its pre-pregnancy size
- Increases CRH (a stress reducing hormone)
