The placenta is an organ with the role of protecting and nurturing the baby in a mother’s womb.
Naturally, it serves as an interface for the supply of oxygen and nutrients from the mother to the baby, but in order for the baby to grow healthily within the womb, the placenta works in a truly range of ways, including digestion and excretion in place of the internal organs of the still developing baby, the secretion of hormones, and the provision of an immune system to make it difficult for the baby to contract illnesses.
On the other hand, the placenta is also an organ that synthesizes and excretes “cell growth factor”, a substance that controls the growth and replication of cells. Without cell growth factor, it is not possible to produce new cells. In just 10 months of pregnancy, from just a single cell, producing a baby with 40 to 60 trillion cells is all thanks to cell growth factor, which is produced only by the placenta.
Originally, the placenta is something that comes about through separation from the same, single, fertilized ovum as the one the baby comes from, and it has the genetic information needed to produce all of the cells, so it can probably be called “the maternal organ”.
And, when the baby is finally born, the placenta‘s role is completed, and it is expelled from the body. It can be said to have performed its mission, and even at that time, the placenta is rich in nutrients, and contains all kinds of active ingredients. Mother animals, who have to survive from immediately after giving birth, and protect themselves from their enemies, recover their strength by eating the placenta, which is rich in nutrients. Animals must know, instinctively, about the power of the placenta.
Why using the placenta?
The efficacy of placental extract
The effects of the placenta are recognized in a wide range of fields
In Chinese medicine, there is a notion of recovery in which people eat the same part of an animal as their own dysfunctional body part, along the lines of “it is good to eat an animal’s liver when the condition of one’s own liver is bad”. It can be said that is an extremely efficient method to sustain active ingredients, etc. in which the information that is necessary for reproducing nutrients, enzymes and cells, but is insufficient in the affected part, is supplied.
So, even though one may neither feel unwell nor notice a pain in specific body parts, when the whole body feels heavy somehow, the skin condition is bad, and neither one’s emotions nor one’s physical condition are good, what should one do? Even in illnesses in which the cause is clearly understood, our body and mind often feel unwell.
