Yep, the 35-year-old has got very personal and has opened up about her decision to freeze dry her placenta into a jar of pills.
‘I’m really not this holistic person or someone who would have ever considered eating my placenta,’ Kim wrote.
‘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).’
LOL. Anyway, back to the pills…
Whilst the sound of it might gross some people out, it’s actually thought to help stop mothers from developing post natal depression by replenishing iron supplies and containing traces of hormones like oxytocin.
‘I really didn’t want the baby blues and thought I can’t go wrong with taking a pill made of my own hormones – made by me, for me,’ wrote the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.
‘I started researching and read about so many moms who felt this same way and said the overall healing process was so much easier.’
Sister Kourtney also did the same after having her three children, and posted on Instagram about how great she felt after giving birth to Reign back in January.
‘Yummy… PLACENTA pills!’ Kourtney wrote a month after giving birth. ‘No joke.. .I will be sad when my placenta pills run out. They are life changing!’
And it seems Kim is feeling the benefits too.
‘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!’ she said.
It’s clearly working for Kim, but with little research having gone into placenta pills by medical professionals, they’ve been labelled unsafe by some. And costing up to £150, it’s sure not a cheap natural remedy, either…
Still, each to their own, Kimmy!
