Placenta pills barely affect health
Have you ever thought about eating your own placenta because it would be good for your health? Maybe you should think about it, because recent research shows that placenta pills hardly affect your health.
Placental pills were thought to reduce tiredness after childbirth, helping you get that maternal feeling and reducing the risk of depression.
Now research at the University of Nevada shows that placental pills have little influence on this, reports HuffingtonPost. Although it was a small-scale survey of just 27 women, it is the first time that it has been scientifically researched.
Twelve women of the group participated in a placental pill and 15 received a placebo pill. After the birth the researchers saw a very small difference in the level of hormones in the women who had taken placental pills. But according to the researchers, no significant difference was found in energy or maternal hormones between the two groups. Because it is now a small-scale study, according to the scientists, more research into the effect of placenta pills is required.
Placenta pills popularity
The placenta pills are becoming increasingly popular because there are a number of celebrities who swear by them. For example, reality star Kim Kardashian and actress Alicia Silverstone said that they felt better after giving birth.
