How is the placenta prepared?
We offer two methods of encapsulation - the RAW method and the TCM method. Feel free to contact us for more information about the two methods.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) inspired
This method involves gently steaming the raw placenta alone or with fresh ginger, cutting it into small pieces, dehydrating it and then putting it into capsules.
Raw Preparation Method
Please note: there's really nothing "raw" about this method, actually, though the name is deceiving. This is our most popular method of preparation. The placenta is cut into small pieces, dehydrated, ground down into a fine powder and put into capsules. The difference between the two methods is that this method skips steaming the placenta.
All extra services can be in addition to encapsulation!
