3 Things to Look Out For When Buying a Placenta Supplement
Placentas are packed with rich growth factors, antioxidants, antibodies, vitamins, minerals and other nourishing nutrients. They are known for their exceptional anti-ageing properties, on top of a wide range of health benefits (e.g. energy and immune-boosting, hormonal balance, management of PMS symptoms, and support good skin, joint and emotional health). Placentas are especially helpful for individuals experiencing premenopausal and menopausal symptoms, people with poor health or those who desire an improvement in their skin conditions.
With so many placenta supplements available on the market, determining which supplements are high quality, safe and effective can be a challenge. Here are 3 things to look out for when buying a placenta supplement.
1. Source of Placenta
Different sources have varying levels of bioactive placenta content. Some may be a mixture of bioactive placenta content and inactive compounds. For example, porcine placenta extract has more than 99% bioactive placenta content with growth factors, whereas sheep, deer and cow placenta have less bioactive placenta content with growth factors. Plant and marine placenta, on the other hand, do not contain any growth factors.
