Kim Kardashian Reveals Her Anti-Depression Pills Are Made from Newborn Son’s Placenta

Kim Kardashian has revealed that she has had her son, Saint West’s placenta made into pills which she takes daily to ward off postpartum depression, Daily News reports. She posted a picture of a bottle containing the placenta pills on her website and wrote alongside the image saying,

‘So, I’m really not this holistic person or someone who would have ever considered eating my placenta, And when I say “eat my placenta,” I mean that I’m having it freeze-dried and made into a pill form- not actually fry it like a steak and eat it (which some people do, BTW).”I thought, why not try it? What do I have to lose?’


‘I really didn’t want the baby blues and thought I can’t go wrong with taking a pill made of my own hormones- made by me, for me. I started researching and read about so many moms who felt this same way and said the overall healing process was so much easier.’

The 35-year-old reality star did same when she had her first child, North West and she claims it made her ‘ feel a surge of energy and feel really healthy and good’’ each time she took a placenta pill. She also says she did not have any signs of depression and recommends it for anyone considering placenta pills.

Other celebrities; reality star Kim Zolciak, actresses January Jones and Gaby Hoffman, have also opened up about eating their placentas after giving birth in recent years. However, a gynaecologist at New York University Langone Medical Center, Dr. Iffath Hoskins, reportedly spoke about the practise sometimes at the beginning of the year saying that the practice does not have proven benefits. Dr. Hoskins said,

“There is no absolutely scientific analysis of this. It’s five people here, six people here, an actress, a neighbor, a cousin.”
