The raw method of placenta encapsulation is when the placenta is cleaned and then dehydrated followed by encapsulation. This method is said to retain all the vitamins and hormones, as there is no cooking. It’s also meant to pack more of a punch energy wise. Generally, there is a higher yield with this method, so therefore they last longer.
Traditional Chinese Medicine method is when the placenta is cleaned and then gently steamed with ginger, chilli and lemon prior to dehydration and encapsulation. This method is said to have a warming effect and more of a slow release of the benefits. Steaming the placenta also kills any potential bacteria so the capsules can have a longer shelf life, but there is some belief that this may also lessen the beneficial effects by decreasing the levels of vitamins and hormones during the steaming process. This method is recommended for people prone to anxiety as the RAW method can be too strong.

Placenta tinctures are also particularly beneficial at the return of your monthly cycle and menopause.
