Reality television star Kim Kardashian had announced that she wants to eat her own placenta after giving birth to her baby because she thinks it will make her look younger.
Now sister Kourtney Kardashian has followed her after giving birth to her third child.
Kourtney revealed that she takes capsules made from her placenta after she gave birth to her baby.
The 35-year-old shared a photo of the pills she had made from her afterbirth. Gushing about the "#benefits" of capsules, she wrote alongside the snapshot, "Yummy...PLACENTA pills!"
She added, "No joke...I will be sad when my placenta pills run out. They are life changing!"
Kourtney claims that it has given her a huge energy, and much breast milk, since she took the capsules. Yet there is no scientific basis for those claims.
In a report published on the Mirror, Linea Sharif, director of Independent Network capsules placenta says, "It is a solution for those who wish to take advantage of the placenta after birth, instead of cooking and eating it, since it doesn't taste good."
Pointing out that after birth the placenta placed in the sterile ice, then drying it and milling to turn it into capsules which is easy to stored and used.
Previously, Hollywood moms like former Playboy model Holly Madison and Mad Men actress January Jones also ingested their own placentas.
"It's not gross or witchcrafty," Jones said in 2012 interview. "It's a very civilized thing that can help women with depression or fatigue. I was never depressed or sad or down after the baby was born, so I'd highly suggest it to any pregnant woman."
