Methods of Preparing Your Placenta Capsules

Gentle Method

The placenta is cleaned, sliced and dehydrated at 160 degrees. It is then ground into powder and put into your choice of clear gelatin, clear vegetarian, grape or mint capsules.  This method yields the most capsules as it is only dehydrated and not heated.  It is commonly known as the "Raw Method" and is great for boosting energy and balancing hormones. This method is most common as it does produce the most capsules.  $200

Balanced Method

The placenta is cleaned, slightly steamed with warming properties of lemon, pepper and ginger, then dehydrated at 160 degrees. It is ground into a powder and put into your choice of capsule. This method does yield fewer capsules than the Gentle Method because of the added heat of steaming.  Commonly known as "TCM" or "The Chinese Method", it is tonifying and aids those who are sensitive to iron, hormonal supplements or prone to high anxiety .  $220

Half & Half

If you can't decide or want the properties of both methods, you can get half of each method!  $225

Additional Placenta Products 

Add any of the following placenta products to your order to extend the benefits.

Placenta Tincture

Tinctures are always recommended in addition to encapsulation, to offer needed support when capsules are gone (4-6 weeks). Tincture provides the same benefits as the capsules, which are beneficial for all Mamas, and especially for those that struggle with anxiety or depression.  

A small piece of raw placenta is put in 100 proof alcohol, able to be used at 6 weeks, when the capsules are typically all gone. Tinctures have an indefinite shelf life and are an amazing way to preserve the placenta benefits for life for Mama & Baby!
