IPEN-photo-mms_img18617775001-copy-225x300 To be prepared and consumed within 24 hours of the placenta’s delivery.  The raw placenta smoothie is made of a 3cms round piece of fresh placenta (the rest can be prepared into capsules or other remedies), a handful of fresh organic berries of choice, 1 whole banana, an organic apple and spring water. Simple and delicious…you really can’t taste the placenta!

“For me personally the increase in milk and the ease of feeding has been the greatest benefit. The raw placenta smoothie was noticeably helpful – the bleeding went from heavy to light in 5-10 hours.  My mood and energy levels were also much higher than I expected.  And it didn’t taste of anything other than berries which was a complete surprise – in fact it was quite delicious!”  Kate, mum of two in London


The raw placenta is known for its high contents of stem cells and growth factors which together heal damaged tissue and organs at an incredible rate.  Consuming the placenta raw is the most natural and effective way to benefit from your placenta after birth.

Reported Benefits of Raw Placenta Smoothie:

Women consuming raw placenta smoothie have reported that it:

  • Helps stop postpartum haemorrhaging and triggers 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
  • Encourages breastmilk to ‘come in’ at day 2 post-partum rather than 3-4 days post-partum
  • Eases the hormonal transition to postpartum and helps prevent the ‘baby blues’ around the time when milk engorges the breasts
