Here is a list of nutrients found in the placenta and how each one benefits your recovery:
  • VITAMIN B6-Helps support adrenal function (adrenal glands are what produce hormones). Helps to calm and maintain a healthy nervous system. Helps to speed up metabolism by acting as a coenzyme in the breakdown of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Helps your body to produce antibodies – antibodies help your immune system.
  • VITAMIN B12-Helps to treat some types of anemia. Helps your body to use fat and carbohydrates for energy and to make new protein.
  • VITAMIN E-Protects against toxins such as air pollution. Helps damaged skin cells to heal.
  • IRON-Iron is the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to transport it throughout your entire body. Without healthy red blood cells, your body can’t get enough oxygen-which can lead to fatigue.
  • CYTOKNES-Small secreted proteins released by cells in the body. They have a specific effect on the interactions and communications between cells. They help in the making of new cells to heal and replace damaged cells and tissue.
  • STEM CELLS-Help to repair damage done to the body caused by childbirth. Helps you to heal and recover quicker.

In addition to all of the vitamins and nutrients found in your placenta, there are hormones found in your placenta. Here is the list of hormones found in your placenta and how each one benefits you:
