The ingestion of the placenta immediately after parturition is a behavior ubiquitous in mammals with more than 4000 species of mammals consuming their placenta. Placentophagy is widespread among apes and non-human primates. This suggests that placentophagy in humans is a tradition that was lost with evolution. There are diverse reports of traditional cultures and different ethnicities who consumed placenta raw, cooked, or dried and pulverized. In traditional Chinese medicine, dehydrated placenta powder is used to stimulate lactation as well as treat fertility disorders among a host of other ailments.
