the placenta really so magical?Interview, why do some women reflects his after eating the placenta, but rather a nosebleed, cause baby constipation?To this, each have each view, Chinese and western medicine has been controversial.

the doctor of traditional Chinese medicine according to "compendium of materia medica" records, sees the placenta as a medicine, the virtual breath pain syndromes, deficiency of weakness, infertility, and other symptoms of liver and kidney deficiency of qi and blood, have significant curative effect.But at the same time, emphasize the internal pay attention to coordination of Yin and Yang, human body healthy if an overdose of the placenta, not only cannot have nourishing effect, it will make the imbalance of Yin and Yang in the body, interfere with normal endocrine, cause a harm to health.Suggested that suit the remedy to the case, vary from person to person, appropriate "supplements".

while many western medicine thinks, "the placenta no nutritional value, and pork is!"JHF Zheng Shaohai, vice President of the hospital, said: "the placenta itself is placental lobule and fibrous tissue, no nutrition, particularly after high temperature heating, these organizations are carbonized, organizations do not have what work, nutrients are destroyed, even has not much nutrition. At this time, like mothers ate later, since it itself are carbonized, could really easy to cause constipation. But can invigorate the circulation, cause the nose bleeding, is don't want to come, may be a coincidence, no side effects."He personally think the placenta nothing nutritional value, is not recommended roasting the placenta, do the placenta capsule.He said: "said placenta nutritious, there is no scientific basis, as a pseudoscience."

Zheng Shaohai, according to the human placenta medicine of traditional Chinese medicine, may have certain effect.Such as extraction of placenta tissue fluid, etc., but it is through special processing, rather than a folk high temperature, high pressure processing.So, now some of the placenta processing, is some people seek personal interests, to cater to people psychological speculation, there is no practical significance.
