Biohacking with Brittany

May 23, 2023

Today I talk about a question I received on Instagram about the pros and cons of eating your placenta, otherwise known as “placentophagy”.

I talk about the benefits and risks of eating your placenta, ethical considerations, placenta vs other organ meat nutrients, encapsulating your placenta post-birth and much more. I also explain the history of placentophagy and how it’s been noted in several cultures across the world. 

Message me on Instagram @BIOHACKINGBRITTANY if you also have questions about biohacking, women’s health or nutrition!
