Placenta Smoothie Recipes


The placenta is known for its high contents of stem cells and growth factors which together heal damaged tissue and organs at an incredible rate.  Growth factors called cytokines stimulate cell division, the making of new cells, which is essential when healing, repairing and regeneration of damaged tissue. The benefits of having a placenta smoothie soon after birth.

I am sure there are many of you reading this right now thinking, “ewww, gross”, and thats understandable, after all we are talking about eating your placenta. A placenta smoothie doesn’t mean whizzing up the whole placenta as many people assume. It is in fact a smoothie with a walnut size piece of placenta added. Once a mother has decided to do this with her placenta there is a visceral longing to drink it.  The effects are fairly instant, and the colostrum becomes darker within a few hours. It makes an interesting feeling of excitement both instantly and over the next few hours.

I have made many placenta smoothies with ingredients such as bananas, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries. Sometimes I add water and other times I add fruit juice. It all depends on the ingredients chosen. Below are some of the placenta recipes for you to try. If you prefer you can always book my placenta services. Benefits of raw placenta smoothie

  • Helps stop post partum haemorrhaging and trigger the body to quickly heal internal wounds
  • Significantly reduces blood loss
  • Gives the body an immediate supply of essential vitamins and nutrients
  • Provides the body with an immediate boost of hormones to begin healing the body after birth
  • Gives the mother an immediate feeling of strength and balance
  • Most mothers who have the smoothie report milk ‘comes in’ at day 2 post-partum rather than 3-4 days post-partum
  • Eases the hormonal transition to post-partum and helps prevent the ‘baby blues’ around thetime when milk engorges the breasts
