These capsules, known simply as TCM Capsules, are made by gently rinsing, preparing and steaming the placenta over an organic infusion of fresh organic chilli, lemon and ginger. These warming herbs familiar to Chinese medicine are believed to warm and energise you, destroy bacteria and preserve the placenta. After steaming over the herbs the placenta is sliced into strips, dehydrated, finely ground and put into vegan capsules.
In Chinese medicine the process of labour and birth is believed to leave open, empty space within the body that is considered to be very yin, or cold. The Chinese believe that after birth, the mother needs to be kept warm and should only eat warm foods and drink warm drinks. A way to promote healing during the postpartum period is to add yang, which is warmth. This effect is produced in placenta encapsulation by the use of steam and warming herbs, creating warming and nourishing capsules.
Mothers who have taken TCM capsules have reported a more balanced, healing and warming feeling and noticed a gradual increase in energy. They can be stored for up to six months.
"I just wanted to say how amazing the capsules have been. I’ve kept back 6 just in case I wanted to do another bottle of Tincture as I have been so impressed.
Despite this very chaotic time I haven’t felt the crazy hormonal dip liked I did with my first child. I also noticed on the days I missed a dose how differently I felt. A lot more anxious and stressed but when I resumed taking them that disappeared. Despite being at home with a toddler and newborn, and having little time to recover, I feel my physical and mental state has been saved with the remedies!!"

I can see from Instagram Placenta Practice is busier than ever which is brilliant. Just wanted to let you know how well I have felt since the birth of the twins, my recovery has been great and I am managing to breastfeed both babies, I have no doubt that my placenta capsules have contributed to this. Thank you for such a hassle free and professional service.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your service and support. Approaching the birth of our little girl I had the added confidence I needed knowing I would be benefiting from my very own placenta. Giving myself and our daughter the best start to our journey. I've felt mostly fantastic since having her, and I am certain I have you and the placenta pills to thank for that.
