Other important health benefits of Placenta Extracts

The general health benefits of Placenta Extract include improvements in energy, stress response, improvement of sleep patterns, relaxation and the ability to overcome a feeling of fatigue.

It is well known that the bio-active molecules in placenta include hormones like prolactin and oxytocin - hormones that helps lactating and bonding after giving birth, as well as providing a state of happiness and enhancing the feeling of wellness and relaxation.
