Methods of encapsulation

I can prepare your placenta in one of two ways. The following information can help you decide which method is right for you.

Raw Prep

Placenta is cleaned, sliced and placed into the dehydrator raw. Dehydrated at 160 degrees F
  • Yields more capsules
  • May give bursts of energy
  • May retain more nutrients
  • Recommend for those that tend to run hot, or with a warm constitution
  • Not recommended for those that run cold, or with a cool constitution
  • May not give tonifying benefits
  • Not recommended for those that tend to be high energy or anxious

Traditional Prep

Placenta is steamed with lemon, jalapeño, and ginger, prior to slicing and placing in the dehydrator. Dehydrated at 160 degrees F
  • Yields less capsules
  • Iron may be more bioavailable
  • May lose other nutrients in steaming process
  • Not recommended for those that tend to run hot, or with a warm constitution.
  • Recommended for those that run cold, or with a cool constitution.
