I’ve been blogging about beauty since 2009. From glutathione to collagen and now to placenta. I’m willing to take anything in the name of vanity (and hold on to my dear youth as long as I can). Some would probably feel squeamish at the thought of putting placenta on their faces. Albeit ingesting it through supplements or drinks. Take placenta supplements? Easy!
Here’s my honest-to-goodness detailed review on taking DHC Placenta Supplement (1,300php for 60 capsules).
Benefits of Placenta
Placenta, effectively reduces wrinkles, while moisturizing the skin. It is also known to have nutrients and stem cells which promotes cell regeneration. They claim to be one of the best anti-aging supplement.
- A Korean study published in the Korean Journal for Food Science of Animal Resources in 2015 found that pig placenta extract, when taken orally, reduced trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL), UV wrinkle formation, and significantly prevented collagen degradation.
- Another Korean study published in the Journal of Tissue Engineering in 2013 reported human placenta growth factors greatly improved the speed of wound healing in rats when applied topically.
- A Japanese study published in the Gynecology & Obstetrics Journal in 2013 showed pig placenta stimulated the proliferation of collagen in human fibroblast cells.
DHC Placenta 30 days supply contains pig placenta extract powder 160mg,tocotrienol 6mg,Vitamin B2 1.2mg,Stabilizers (olive oil, beeswax), Casing (Gelatin, glycerin)
I finished the entire pack in a month’s time. Taking the placenta capsules religiously. Here’s what I noticed:
- Despite sleeping late at night, I look fresh when I wake up in the morning
- My pores looked visibly smaller. My skin finer.
- I slept better (even for a short while)
- Cheeks plumped up and looked firm
My forehead lines and crows feet are still there for sure. But during the time I spent taking this I look less tired, more happy. Even if that’s not really what’s happening inside. I’m looking forward to try other forms of placenta in the future.
