How?

 

There are many nutrients, vitamins, and hormones found in the placenta that work with your body to recover and heal from all aspects of childbirth—both physical and emotional. Encapsulating your placenta delivers them back to your body, speeding up your physical recovery time and aiding in a smooth transition from pregnancy to postpartum. 

 

Vitamin B6: Aids the central nervous system and supports adrenal function. It also helps to increase the speed of your metabolism and aids in the production of antibodies to boost your immune system. 

 

Vitamin B12: Enables the body to produce energy by using fats and carbohydrates. Increased B12 can also treat and help prevent anemia. 

 

Vitamin E: Speeds up the bodies healing process and protects from toxins and free-radicals. 

 

Iron: Supplemental iron can increase the number of red blood cells carrying oxygen throughout the body, preventing exhaustion and increasing energy. 

 

Cytokines: Help to heal and replace injured and damaged tissue by facilitating communication between cells in the body. 

 

Stem cells: Speeds up the recovery process by aiding the healing of damaged tissue.



 

Hormones:

 

Estrogen, Progesterone, & Testosterone: Prepares the body and mammary glands for lactation, decrease postpartum mood swings and uterine cramping

 

Oxytocin: Aids in maternal/infant bonding and decreases pain

 

Placental opioid-enhancing factor: Decrease pain and induce a sense of well-being 

 

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone: Regulates the thyroid and metabolism, increases energy

 

Corticotropin Releasing Hormone: Decreases risk of postpartum depression

 

Cortisone: Promotes healing by reducing swelling and inflammation in the body

 

Interferon: Fights infection

 

Prostaglandins: Help the uterus return to its pre-pregnancy state
