There are two methods for preparing the placenta for encapsulation, Raw capsules or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) capsules. There are benefits to both, and women may choose either depending on their needs and beliefs.
RAW Placenta Encapsulation, the method of preparation involves cleaning the placenta and then dehydrating the placenta before it is ground and put into capsules. Placenta capsules made with this method provide a burst of energy up front and great hormone stabilisation. This method retains more nutrients. It is however not suited for all placenta’s eg when the mother had an infection during birth.
TCM Placenta Encapsulation is inspired by Traditional Chinese Medicine. This method of preparation involves cleaning the placenta, gently steaming and then dehydrating the placenta. The steaming process can be done by adding lime, chilli and ginger to the water. (Never in contact directly with placenta). Then the placenta is dehydrated, ground into a powder and put into the capsules.
The number of capsules ranges from 100 – 200 capsules, it all depends on the size of your placenta. The amount of capsules you get from the TCM method are usually less than the RAW method.
