During a TV reality show “Keeping Up with Kardashians” Kim Kardashian revealed that she is going to eat own placenta after giving birth to look younger.
Kardashian asked her doctor on the season 8 premiere of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” if it’s true that eating a placenta can reduce aging.
He says “some people believe in that.”
“Don’t you think it makes you look younger?” “I really want to do it.”
Kardashian wants to emulate stars like January Jones and Holly Madison, who also ate their placenta after giving birth a practice that is becoming increasingly more common.
Many mothers across the world after giving birth request to keep their placentas for some cultural reasons but not to eat them.
It has been suggested that by eating the placenta, the hormones of the new mother stabilizes and postpartum depression can therefore be prevented not leaving out that it can offer some degree of pain relief due to certain chemicals it contains.
Kim Kardashian is expected to give birth in a few weeks from now.
