Hilary Duff joined fellow celebrities, Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen when she consumed parts of her placenta following the birth of her second child this year. Duff had her placenta made into frozen cubes to use in smoothies.
"It was the most delightful smoothie I've ever had," Duff said on the “Informed Pregnancy” podcast. "I haven't had a smoothie that delightful since I was like 10 years old. It was calorie-filled with juice and fruit and everything delicious."
The interest in placenta consumption is growing and is known to reduce postpartum bleeding, improve mood and milk supply, and prevent postpartum depression according to the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
