Placenta Benefits.info explains the placenta as “The first time that mom and baby work together for a common purpose.” The sweetest explanation!
Once the egg is fertilized it travels into the uterus and implants on the uterine wall. At that time a a fetal and maternal placenta are formed together and as the fetus grows the placenta filters moms blood to give nutrients to the baby, provides oxygen, disposes of waste and produces hormones for both mother and baby
The placenta is a primary endocrine organ (primary hormone producing organ) that actually takes much of the hormone production away from the hypothalamus and pituitary glands during pregnancy! When the placenta comes out, it takes the hypothalamus and pituitary glad up to 3 months to learn how to do their jobs again.
When encapsulating your placenta, you are able to bridge the gap between your placenta leaving your body and your hypothalamus taking over the hormone production again, with a bit of a pick-me-up. Supplementing some of the lost hormones, vitamins and minerals. The capsules are then helpful for anytime an extra boost of hormones could be needed.
Such an amazing temporary organ!!!!
