Benefits of Sheep Placenta Consumption.
Findings from research reported that nutrients that are delivered via the placenta could be retained even after the process of delivering the baby. The research also stated that the placenta contains collagen, elastin, laminin, vitamins such as B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, B7, and B12. All these vitamins, better known as B complex vitamins, play a role in cell metabolism, cell division, cell development, and energy production.
Due to this aspect, it is said that it gives a lot of benefits to skin health. The placenta is even used in clinical settings such as for burn injuries and wound healing. One study compared the effectiveness of topical placental extract dressings versus the povidone-iodine dressings in various patients with diabetic wounds. Placenta wound dressing could significantly accelerate the rate of wound healing when compared to povidone-iodine dressings as it contained amino acids, vitamins, and nucleotides which accelerated wound healing recovery of seven to ten days.
Due to all these effects, many skincare products recently have incorporated placenta be it from sheep or deer, in their skincare or supplement products.
The placenta is an organ that links the foetus to the mother. It transfers oxygen and nutrients to the foetus and removes foetal waste products from the mother. When the baby is born, the placenta will also be discharged from the mother’s body. There has been a growing interest in placenta extraction as it is said to have high nutritional value. The nutritional substance includes cytokines, hormones, bioactive peptides, enzymes, growth factors, vitamins, and minerals.
Culturally, humans rarely consume the placenta, but recently there has been growing interest in consuming the placenta, be it from humans or from animals. Mammals have been consuming the placenta for years; it is called placentophagia, while in humans, it is called placentophagy. The placenta could be served raw, cooked, or encapsulated and to be taken as supplements as it contains various nutritional benefits.
Rave on this started when many Hollywood celebrities started using placenta therapy as part of their skincare routine treatment. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, and even male celebrities like Harry Styles from One direction have said been using this for their skin to get a baby-looking skin.
Sheep Placenta consumption in Malaysia.
In Malaysia, it is rare for people to consume raw placenta. Usually, it comes in health supplement form, and it is originating from deer or sheep. Hence, as it is in health supplements form, any products containing placenta extract in a pharmaceutical dosage will require registering with the Drug Control Authority (DCA) before being sold or used in Malaysia.
Caution with regards to placenta in supplement
When it comes to placenta consumption in health supplement form, it is evaluated based on its safe use and product quality. Since placenta usually contains hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone thus being free from all the hormones is essential for placenta-based supplements.
