Our apologies if you’ve just eaten. And if you were just about to, maybe hold off for a few? Because talk of eating placenta doesn’t make for the most appetizing of mealtime chats, even if you are down with the practice.
Kim Kardashian has had two tough pregnancies now—and if reports are to be believed, that’ll be it for her and Kanye West—so it isn’t surprising that she’s trying just about anything to make herself feel better, including eating her own placenta. She opened up about it on her app and explained that unlike those who fry it up and chomp away like it’s a juicy sirloin, she is having hers freeze-dried and turned into pills.
“So, I’m really not this holistic person or someone who would have ever considered eating my placenta. I actually thought Kourtney would have soooo done this, but I don’t think she did,” Kardashian wrote (fact: her big sister actually did eat hers). “And when I say ‘eat my placenta,’ I mean that I’m having it freeze-dried and made into a pill form—not actually fry it like a steak and eat it (which some people do, BTW).”
This is a case of been there, done that for Kardashian, who also consumed her own placenta after giving birth to North in order to help prevent any post-partum depression.
“I had great results and felt so full of energy and didn’t have any signs of depression. I definitely had to do it again. Every time I take a pill, I feel a surge of energy and feel really healthy and good. I totally recommend it for anyone considering it!”
