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.
You should look out for placenta sourced from high quality and hygiene management farms; manufactured in compliance with the quality standard of placenta food stipulated by Japan Health Food Association and approved by GRAS (USA). For instance, porcine placenta extract is the first mammal placenta to be approved for use in pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, in accordance to Pharmaceutical Affairs Act, Japan. In contrast, sheep placenta is associated with the risk of developing scrapie, while deer/cow placenta are prohibited to be used in pharmaceutical and cosmetic products, in accordance to Pharmaceutical Affairs Act, Japan.
The placenta supplement should also be free of hormones and additives, as they are harmful to health.
The efficacy of the placenta supplement is dependent on the type of degradation method used to extract the bioactive content from the placenta. The Multi-enzymatic Degradation & Nanofiltration method thoroughly removes impurities, retaining up to 99% bioactive content after extraction, with full therapeutic potential intact. It is more superior compared to Freeze-thaw Degradation method and Hydrochloric Acid Degradation method. In the aforementioned methods, impurities are not removed thoroughly, and minimal bioactive content is extracted due to the loss during manufacturing or high acid content.
