Placenta Pills Anyone??

So New Mum Kim Kardashian just had  birth placenta made into pills which she's taking saying it aids breastfeeding and helps with postpartum depression..

The Placenta to the est of my knowledge was to help the child in the womb and when it has no need anymore it does come out as a dead organ.As a matter of fact I dont think anything that comes out of any orifice in the body (except childbirth of course )is useful anymore so when you are breast feeding a new baby and then you begin to introduce the placenta back into your system I dont get how beneficial that is.

Well a quick search online shows not only kim does it,Its becoming a world phenomenon now called placentophagy that  is the act of mammals/Humans eating the placenta of their young after childbirth.

The placenta they say contains high levels of prostaglandin which stimulates involution ia shrinking or return to a former sizeof the uterus, in effect cleaning the uterus out. 

The placenta also contains small amounts of oxytocin which eases birth stress and causes the smooth muscles around the mammary cells to contract and eject milk.  
 These whether been scientifically proven is indeed story for another day!
