Reality show star Tamera Mowry-Housley, who had recently given birth, encouraged her twin sister Tia to try her placenta. Although Tia was hesitant at first, Tamera convinced her by adding a small amount of brandy to the placenta mixture, which Tia ultimately drank.

Tia said, “If you think about it too much, you’re not going to like it, because all you’re going to think about is that you’re consuming placenta. But I was surprised that it tasted pretty good mixed with a little bit of alcohol.”

Kim Kardashian decided to encapsulate her placenta after the birth of her second child. She did this in order to avoid postpartum depression. Kim explained, “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). Every time I take a pill, I feel a surge of energy and feel really healthy and good. I totally recommend it for anyone considering it!”

“Your placenta gets dehydrated and made into vitamins. It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas.” Whether considered mad mom or perfectly sane, consuming your placenta still remains a controversial topic.

“I ingested my placenta,” she wrote. “I am not a bad person, a crazy person, or a freak, and neither is Alicia Silverstone or January Jones. There is no evolutionary benefit to us being created with a placenta that is not perfectly healthy and wonderful to ingest. It is. Yum!”
