Real Human Results

Results from studies on Humans who Consumed Placenta (placentophagy)

These studies were conducted using scientific methods. Although most of this is listed as anecdotal evidence, it cannot be overlooked. If you decide to try our supplement, Vitamin Placenta, here are just some of the benefits you may experience, as listed in the scientific literature quoted.

Motivations for placental consumption was explored by Selander et al. (2013), who found that this practice is particularly acceptable among educated, married (90%), middle-class White American women (93%; N = 189). Thirty-four percent of women in the study reported consuming their placentas for improvements in mood, a common motivation previously identified by Marraccini and Gorman (2015). Cremers and Low (2014) found that 57% of those who participated in placentophagia did so for a range of health benefits. Additional motivations identified by Selander et al. (2013) include recommendations by a midwife or doula (10%) and hormone and nutrient replacement (8%).


The positive and negative experiences of these participants were also measured on a 21-item, 5-point Likert scale. The positive experiences included improved mood (40%), increased energy (20%), improved lactation (15%), and decreased bleeding (7%). Although 69% of participants reported no negative experiences, some reported unpleasant smell or taste (7%), headache (4%), and other negative effects (20%; Selander et al., 2013). An overwhelming 75% of participants described the experience as very positive, and 20% described it as positive. Close to all participants (98%) indicated they would participate in placentophagia again (Selander et al., 2013).


Although studies directly on placental consumption in humans has not yet been conducted on our supplement, Vitamin Placenta, you can gain an understanding of what you might experience from this published research. Specifically, out of those who ate placenta, 98% of people said that they would do it again! Significant improvements in mood and energy are shown here, and there is no other natural supplement which improves these attributes in one capsule. Similarly, we have formulated our supplement in such a way that you are very unlikely to have any negative side-effects, since the supplement was designed to mask the taste and smell. These studies find significant correlation to incredible mood-enhancing properties only present in placental tissue, which for the first time is available in an over-the-counter supplement called Vitamin Placenta.
