Kim K Explains Why She's Eating Her Placenta

Reality star Kim Kardashian is going the holistic route and eating her placenta.

The 35-year-old, who gave birth to son Saint on Dec. 5, revealed the news on her blog in a post called “Eating My Placenta.”

"So, I'm really not this holistic person or someone who would have ever considered eating my placenta," she explained, adding, "And when I say 'eat my placenta,' I mean that 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)."

Kim, who also ate her placenta after daughter North West’s birth, said she heard the pills can combat postpartum depression.

"I heard so many stories when I was pregnant with North of moms who never ate their placenta with their first baby and then had postpartum depression, but then when they took the pills with their second baby, they did not suffer from depression!" she explained. "So I thought, why not try it? What do I have to lose?"

Kardashian continued, "I really didn't want the baby blues and thought I can't go wrong with taking a pill made of my own hormones—made by me, for me. I started researching and read about so many moms who felt this same way and said the overall healing process was so much easier."

Kim said she had great results the first time around, and so far the natural remedy is working wonders this time too. "I had great results and felt so energized and didn't have any signs of depression! I definitely had to do it again. 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!”
