Ride & Grind Your Hubby: Your Spirituality Must Not Kill Your Sexuality!!! (Adult Only) +18 🔥

Oh dear! There is nothing as boring as a sexually inactive woman. Very self-righteous, passive, and withdrawn. Hey!! You should ride and grind him...Lol. Don't lay down there like a wood. Always giving one excuse or the other in order not to have fun with your own hubby. Like seriously? Hello!! If you are asexual you shouldn't have married him. Or did you marry him just for kids and companionship?




Men love sex, they love sex more than women. You should understand that and try to meet his demand or rather his need. Sex is not food but it is compulsory in a marriage; because once you are married your body is no longer yours but your partner's. Do you know that depriving your partner of sex is a sin? Yes if you both did not agree to abstain from it for a while to fast and pray. OK I get it, you don't deprive him sex but you lay down like a wood with no movement nor participation and allow him to do all the work while you say "Hurry up" in your mind as he grind you right? That is even worse!!! How could you? He is your husband for crying out loud. He own you and you own him, you belong to each other, There shouldn't be such reaction or rather inaction from you while making love, you should be active, participate, and pleasure your husband while he pleasure you. Change position, Get creative, Go on top him, play with him, Ride him, Grind that thing...Lol, Seriously. No amount of prayer can do that job for you, don't deceive yourself; There is time for everything. If you fail to do what you ought to do; another woman will help you out. How about that? I guess you don't want that right? Now get to work. Ride and grind him tonight lol. Do your best and leave the rest to God.

Note: You're obligated to fulfill your marital duties to your spouse. Your spirituality must not kill your sexuality.

Romantic Gestures: Should A Man Cook Or Clean For His Woman?



If your woman is very busy or tired or pregnant or sick or just put birth, I see nothing wrong in you cooking or cleaning for her. Where is it written that a woman must be the permanent cook and cleaner of a home? It's romantic to help your wife do these things when your help is needed and that doesn't mean she should take advantage of your romantic and kind gestures; if she does, Call her to order as the man and head of the home.

It is a good thing for a man to be ROMANTIC. A woman who doesn't appreciate a ROMANTIC MAN is ungrateful and doesn't know what she have. In this jet age where men are becoming less romantic everyday because of the cheapness of some women online and offline; Men really don't have to do much nor say much these days to get and keep a woman, So the level of creativity and romantic gestures has decreased tremendously, But women who still know their worth still demand a high level of creativity and romantic gestures from men who claims to be in love with them. All women love Romantic Men, But not all women are lucky enough to have one. I advise all men to be Romantic, For the road to every woman's heart is "Romantic Gestures".

In the western world it is normal and common for men to cook and clean for their wives, but in Africa it is rare almost like a taboo lol. Africa men have a long way to go in becoming romantic; though a few of them are, but majority are still in the era of their great-grand daddies where a woman does all the domestic works while the man sits down with a news paper in his hands or watch the news on TV. It's time to wake up to the dawn of the day and be romantic! *winks*.

Some of the romantic gestures you should do to make your wife happy:

1. Tell her to take a day off from domestic work maybe on a weekend. Just take care of everything; from the cooking to cleaning to laundry to ironing and every other thing!

2. Take her on a romantic date.

3. Set a surprise candlelight bedroom for sex

4. Take her on a spa date or betterstill give her a honey body massage.

5. Take breakfast to her in bed.

Get creative... There are so many romantic gestures you could do to make your wife happy!

I call a man that cook for his wife "A Romantic Man" while some say he is "Charmed, Jazzed, Or a Woman Wrapper" What About You?

Word For Today!



Position Yourself For A Change: You can't go fishing without a net, You can't go farming without a cutlass, You can't go preaching without a Bible, You can't go writing without a pen. So, Prepare for your breakthrough, change, and miracle. Expect it. Prepare for it. Preparation before manifestation. No time to waste. Prepare now. Above All; Prepare for the coming of the LORD.

Avoiding Bad Marriage by Chris Oyakhilome



After salvation, the most important choice you will need to make is who to marry. This choice is so important that if you miss it, you will suffer for long, if you get it right then you will enjoy forever. A bad marriage can affect every other area of your life. This subject is so important, so many married people are hoping to be single again so as to make the right choice. If you are single please don't just be in a hurry to get married, you have the best opportunity to prepare for it. For two people to come together to live in peace and harmony, they must agree spiritually, mentally and physically. Just like an elephant cannot marry an ant so also a believer cannot marry an unbeliever. If an elephant marries an ant how would they live, if a goat marries a fish where would they meet? You must look for a Godly man or a Godly woman to marry, nothing can beat this. The devil's primary target is the family. He knows that everyone belongs to a family and if he can make two wrong people meet then he has succeeded affecting the community and nations negatively. Ignore your age and the pressure for a moment, the pressure in a wrong marriage is far worse. God has somebody for you but you must set your priorities right. What do you need in a woman? What do you need in a man? Marriage is not about what you want, it is about who you need, that will make you better while you make him better. It is about destiny. That is why you must know your purpose before you get married. Genesis 2:18. You must pray before you choose. God knows the best person for you, it is only wise to seek His will. It is very easy to know God's will when sex is not involved. The moment sex is involved and you want to know His will then He will blank you out. Why? Because you have broken His first Law of NO SEX before marriage. If you have had sex in the past then you need to repent totally and stay away from each other for sometime then you can seek the face of God. Your marriage will not be hell on earth. Your marriage will be honorable in the name of Jesus Christ. Don't marry for sex, don't marry because you are of age, don't marry because you are getting old, don't marry because you are lonely, don't marry because you need someone to support you financially, don't marry because you mistakenly got pregnant, don't marry because you don't want to lose the person, don't marry because of family pressures, don't marry because you like the idea of marriage and admire every wedding gown you see, don't marry because all your friends are getting married. But get married because you want to fulfill destiny. Get married because you want to be a help mate. As a man, get married because you want to fulfill your purpose. God will help you in choosing. God bless you!

Rice Pudding

A pudding is a sweet cooked meal usually served after meal as a desert. It is usually served hot but could also be served cold. A pudding is made of milk, honey, suger, salt, egg, e.t.c.




Here is the recipe for Rice Pudding!

INGREDIENTS:

3⁄4 cup medium grain rice or 3⁄4 cup long grain rice
1 1⁄2 cups water
1⁄4 teaspoon salt (heaping)
4 cups whole milk (I use 2%)
1⁄2 cup sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
cinnamon

DIRECTIONS:

Rice, water and salt to a boil over med-high heat.
Simmer covered until water has been absorbed (approximately 15 minutes).
Stir in milk and sugar and cook uncovered over medium heat for 30-40 minutes, stirring frequently--especially towards the end of cooking.
The pudding is done when the rice and milk have amalgamated into a thick porridge-like consistency.
DO NOT OVERCOOK or the pudding will be solid instead of creamy once cooled.
Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Turn into a bowl or cups.
You can sprinkle cinnamon on the top if you like.
COVER with plastic wrap directly on surface "IF" you don't want a skin.

Enjoy it...

The Mistake that Made Me Six Figures in Freelance Income by Bamidele Onibalusi

Do you know how fireworks were invented?
Apparently, 2,000 years ago, a (bored?) scientist decided to mix together a few items that were commonly found in the kitchen in those days. When these items (charcoal, sulfur and saltpeter) were mixed and compressed in a bamboo, it created an explosion.
Now, we don’t know whether this cook eventually got to keep his job, but his invention 2,000 years ago is a great source of happiness (and money!) for many people today.
A bored cook’s mistake is the reason we have fireworks today.
So what does accidentally inventing fireworks have to do with making a living as a freelance writer?
Two years ago, I made a “mistake.” Somebody contacted me to express interest in advertising on my blog. Considering that I don’t do adverts on my blog, I had gotten hundreds of similar requests in the past that I turned down or plain ignored. This day, though, I didn’t know what hit me. I made a mistake and did contrary to what I had been doing all the while. This mistake, though, resulted in $1,200 in income in a single day. Two years later, it has netted me six figures in freelance writing income.
Exactly what happened? A client sent the following email to me…

Quick blogging opportunity
The email came from someone who wanted to advertise on my blog. I replied and told him that I don’t do adverts on my blog, and he sent the following email as a reply:
Quick blogging opportunity email 2

Usually, this is where it ends; I’ll admit, I’ve ignored a lot of sponsorship offers in the past by downright ignoring the emails or letting it end when someone says I should reach out in the future if I want advertising opportunities.
This time around, though, I thought to myself, “What this person really wants is exposure/promotion for his resource, and my blog is just one of the outlets he felt he needed. What if I turn this around and let him know I can help him write content and get them published on similar and much bigger blogs to mine?
So, I sent him the following email:
Quick blogging opportunity email 3
As soon as he read the email, he took interest in my services and he commissioned a project worth $1,200 for a start. I requested 50% payment ($600) upfront and he paid immediately.
Quick blogging opportunity email 4

All this happened within two hours of my replying to his very first email.
More importantly, I’ve earned six figures with this particular client since I first started working with him. We can say my mistake made me six figures in freelance  income.
What Does This Mean for Your Freelance Writing Business
If you blog, you’ve probably gotten emails in the past from people who want to advertise on your blog; perhaps you were unable to accept their offer because it isn’t relevant to your blog, or because you don’t do ads on your blog, but you should start turning that around.
If someone reaches out to advertise on your blog, it’s because they want exposure; that means they could be a potential client that you can introduce your services to!
So, why don’t you turn this around and pitch them your services instead?
Even if you do ads on your blog, your advertisers are potential clients; they can’t have too much exposure, and this is where your services come in. Pitch them; make them an offer and let them see how you can get them results.
I used strong social proof to close the deal with this client, but I would have closed the deal without it; this client had no idea about where I’ve been published before he reached out to me, and the key to my success lied in keying into his needs; more exposure, which my freelance writing services can provide him.
If you have a blog, it’s time to act — all those advertisers that you keep dismissing and turning down, start pitching them your services.

Benefits Of Early Morning Sex (Strictly For Husband And Wife) by Professor Musa Yakubu.



Yakubu said having sexual intercourse three to four times a week is good for love life and he emphasized on the importance of early morning sex the best time for sex.

“Research has shown that sex boosts immune system by stimulating the body’s first line of defence and production of immunoglobulin A (IgA), against cold and fever,” he said.

“Immunoglobulin A is one of the most common antibodies in the body system. Antibodies are proteins made by the immune system to fight bacteria, viruses, and toxins.”

Sexual intercourse, Yakubu explained, releases the feel-good chemical, known as oxytocin, which enhances closeness with one’s partner and makes people feel happier for a longer period of time.

“Lovemaking of about 20 minutes reduces 150 calories,” he said.

The professor of Biochemistry postulated that sex is the most powerful creative force given to human by God for pleasure and deep companionship.

Yakubu, however, noted that any marriage in which the man or woman could not enjoy sexual intercourse or satisfy their partner in bed was a dead marriage.

He said lack of sexual satisfaction had led to the collapse of many marriages, and said couples to seek for solutions to the problem.

Health Benefits Of Corn

A staple summer vegetable, sweet corn is seldom considered a unique source of health benefits. But the truth is, this amazing plant has the ability to dramatically improve your health in a number of ways. It can be cooked as seen in pic 1 or roasted as seen in pic 2.




Here are the top 5 health benefits of corn:

 1) Corn is a Great Source of Calories At nearly 350 calories per 100 gram serving, the caloric content of corn is the highest among cereals. In fact, one ear of corn is one complete vegetable serving for the average adult. Plus, corn is easy to grow and adapts well to many climates, making it an ideal subsistence grain for agricultural-based cultures. 2) Corn is High in Fiber One cup of corn contains nearly 20% of the total daily-recommended amount of fiber. And since fiber is critical for digestion, corn is great for alleviating constipation and hemorrhoids. 3) Corn is Packed with Vitamins Corn is full of Vitamin B constituents, like Thamin and Niacin, which are essential for nerve health and cognitive function. Corn is also a good source of Pantothenic acid, which is essential for carbohydrate, protein and lipid metabolism in the body. Plus, corn represents a large percentage of the daily folate requirement, which plays an important role in DNA synthesis and repair and aides cell and tissue growth. 4) Corn Provides Many Antioxidants The antioxidant benefits from different types of corn actually come from different combinations of phytonutrients. From carotenoids in yellow corn to anthocyanins in blue corn and hydroxybenzoic acid in purple corn, each variety offers unique antioxidants that fight cancer-causing free radicals. And with loads of Vitamin E—another important antioxidant—corn is great for helping the body defend against illness and disease. Fact: Antioxidants have been shown to reduce many of the most dangerous forms of cancer because of their ability to induce apoptosis in cancerous cells, while leaving healthy cells unaffected. 5) Corn Contains Necessary Minerals Phosphorous, magnesium, manganese, zinc, iron and copper are found in all varieties of corn and positively benefit the body in a number of ways. Phosphorous is essential for regulating growth, bone health and kidney function. Magnesium is necessary for maintaining heart rate and increasing bone strength. Manganese acts as a co-enzyme to assist metabolic activity in the human body. The health benefits of zinc include proper functioning of the immune and digestive systems. How to Maximize the Health Benefits of Corn Experts agree that the healthiest way to cook corn—and maintain all of the health benefits listed above—is with steaming. However, since corn is also one of the top ten vegetables for grilling, I would recommend that approach as well. But no matter how you prepare it, you’re enjoying one of nature’s healthiest seasonal offerings.

Health Benefit Of Sugacane

The reason Sugarcane is a popular drink during summers is because it gives an instant kick of energy and quenches the thirst. Sugarcane juice is good source of glucose which as we know, helps to re-hydrate the human body and gives it a boost of energy. So instead of your artificial energy drink, the next time you feel fatigued or dehydrated, consider drinking a glass of cane juice. Even though cane juice tastes very sweet and has high sugar content, it is good for diabetic patients.




It contains natural sugar which has low glycemic index that prevents steep rise in blood glucose levels in diabetics, so it can act as a substitute of aerated drinks for them. However, people with Type-2 diabetes should consume it in moderation and after consultation with their doctors. Sugarcane juice is considered an alkaline forming food because of the high concentration of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron, and manganese in it. Diseases like cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment and that’s why studies show that it is effective in fighting cancer, especially prostate and breast cancer. As sugar cane juice boosts protein levels in the body, it helps in maintaining the health of the kidney. Taken in a diluted form, with lime juice and coconut water, sugar cane juice helps in reducing the burning sensation which is commonly associated with urinary tract infections, sexually transmitted diseases, kidney stones and prostatitis. The antioxidants in sugarcane juice help to fight infections and boost the immune system of the body. It also protects the liver against infections and helps in keeping the bilirubin levels in control. This is one of the reason that doctors’ advice jaundice patients to drink sugar cane juice, as it is one of the few things that gets easily digested and does not put any pressure on the liver and also helps in reducing the bilirubin levels. Sugarcane juice also acts a good digestive aid due to the presence of potassium. It helps in keeping the digestive system in good shape, prevents stomach infections and is considered to be particularly useful in treating the problem of constipation. Studies show that sugarcane juice protects against tooth decay and bad breath due to its high mineral content. So save yourself the next trip to the dentist and drink a glass of fresh sugarcane juice to get shiny white teeth. In one of my earlier blogs I had mentioned the effects of nutrients on nails, deficiency of nutrients in the body can easily be noticed by looking at the health and condition of your nails. If you have brittle discoloured nails that have white spots on them, then it’s time to add sugarcane juice to your diet. It contains everything to give you those strong shiny nails that would look pretty even without a nail polish. Sugarcane juice has been discovered to be good for those people who are struggling with febrile disorders. Febrile disorders result in fevers, which can lead to seizures and loss of proteins in the body. It is quite common in infants and children. Sugarcane juice helps in compensating the lost protein and helps in recovery. When it comes to healthy skin, alpha hydroxy acids are supposed to have lot of benefits. They fight acne, reduce blemishes, prevent ageing and help in keeping the skin hydrated. One of the most effective alpha hydroxy acids is glycolic acid and sugarcane, is one of its few natural sources. Just apply sugar cane juice to your skin and let it dry or add it to your favourite face mask and scrub. Use it regularly to see the effect.

Other Bloggers Can Make It Too....!!!

Hello! It's your girl...



So many bloggers are diving into entertainment & news blogging. No one wants to try out lifestyle blogs or other blogs because everyone wants quick success or want to imitate the popular entertainment & news bloggers who made it in blogging. Have you sat down to think about the fact that; maybe they made it because that's their line of career and what God destined and predestined for them?

Which line do you really have passion for? And which line is your talent/gift needed? See, Everything is not about money. Money is good, but impacting the world with your gift/talent in your own line is more important and rewardingly more than money. Don't spend donkey years trying to excel in someone's field when you can spend just a short time to excel in yours.


There are various types of blogs to explore and excel apart from entertainment & news blogs, E.g: Lifestyle Blog, Fashion Blog, Food Blog, Health Blog, Beauty Blog, Fitness Blog, Tech Blog, Business & Career Management Blog, Love Blog, Tutorial Blog, Even Personal Blog E.t.c.

Indian Rice

 Indian Foods are known to be very spicy and delicious depending on your taste. Most people dislike spicy foods which are too hot or full of spices like curry, maggi, pepper, and other spicy ingredients. Indian Rice is a traditional Indian meal and originated from India.






INGREDIENTS:

A mugful of American long grain rice2 onions, sliced2 tbsp sunflower oil½ tsp turmeric1 cinnamon stick6 cardamom pods1 tsp cumin seedslarge handful of sultanas and roasted cashew nuts


DIRECTIONS:

Fry the onions in the sunflower oil in a large frying pan for 10-12 minutes until golden.Fill a roomy saucepan with water, bring to the boil and tip in a heaped teaspoon of salt - the water will bubble furiously. Add turmeric and the cinnamon stick to the water. Pour in the rice, stir once and return to the boil, then turn the heat down a little so that the water is boiling steadily, but not vigorously. Boil uncovered, without stirring (this makes for sticky rice) for 10 minutes. Lift some out with a slotted spoon and nibble a grain or two. If they're too crunchy, cook for another minute and taste again. They should be tender but with a little bite. Drain the rice into a large sieve and rinse by pouring over a kettle of very hot waterStir the crushed seeds of the cardamom pods into the onions with the cumin seeds and fry briefly.Toss in a large handful of sultanas and roasted cashew nuts, then the hot drained rice. This is great with curry and will also give an exotic edge to grilled meat or fish.

Enjoy your meal.

  • Salt (to taste)


  • DIRECTIONS:
    Add any of the following to the Moi Moi
    • Hard boiled eggs: Cut the eggs into small pieces.
    • Bone Marrow: Cook the bone marrow with spices and herbs till done then add to the Moi Moi at the mixing stage.
    • Corned beef: separate into small chunks and add to the moi moi during mixing. You can also add to the moi moi after dishing then into cooking bowls or foil bags.





  • The tomato puree gives the Moi Moi its classic peachy colour. If you are in Nigeria, the best ingredient to use is tatashe pepper. I do not like the taste of red bell peppers in my Moi Moi hence I do not recommend it but you can try it and see if you like it.
  • Nutmeg gives the Moi Moi its classic taste. If you've ever eaten Nigerian Moi Moi at a party and wondered why it tastes better than the ones you make, it is probably because you do not add nutmeg to your Moi Moi.
  • 2 litres of water is the exact quantity of water that gives me the perfect texture of Moi Moi that I and my family love. Please note that this qauntity includes the water used in blending the beans. If using bone marrow, the quantity of stock should be part of the 2 litres of liquid you will use in mixing the Moi Moi. If after using this quantity and you are not happy with the texture, adjust the quantity of water accordingly.
  • It is best to use cool or warm water when mixing Moi Moi. You do not want to use hot water for this purpose as it may cause the mix to be lumpy.
  • Using the right amount of oil in your Moi Moi ensures that it has a good texture and rolls off the tongue when you eat it but feel free to use any amount of oil you want. And it is advisable to use tastless and odourless oils in your Moi Moi so that rules out olive oil.
  • About three hours before cooking the moi moi, soak and wash the beans to remove the coat. When the entire coat has been removed, place the beans in a bowl and pour enough water to cover it. Leave to soak for three hours. This is so that the best consistency will be achieved when you blend the beans.
  • It is advisable to use one of eggs, bone marrow or corned beef, not the three at the same time. If you will use eggs, cook till hard boiled, cut into small pieces and set aside. If you prefer bone marrow, cook it with salt and Maggi / Knorr cubes and set aside the stock. If it is corned beef you will go for, open the can and separate the beef into small lumps.
  • Now go ahead and prepare the moi moi containers.

    Next ...

    1. Wash the tatashe pepper (if using it). Ensure you remove the tatashe seeds as they have a tendency to give meals a bitter taste.
    2. Cut the onions into pieces, grind the crayfish with a dry mill. If using the heavy duty grinder in Nigerian markets, these won't be necessary.
    3. Crush the stock cubes and set aside. Wash the habanero/scotch bonnet peppers and set aside.
    4. Now that the beans is soaked (the bean seed is tender when you pinch it), it is time to blend it. It is very important that you use a very good blender for this purpose. The taste and feel of your Moi Moi depends so much on the consistency of the blend. If in doubt, put a small quantity of bean seeds in your home blender and grind to the best of its ability using as small quantity of water as possible. Feel the resulting paste with your fingers and if you notice any tiny pieces at all, then the blender is not good for Moi Moi. At this time, you may consider using the commercial heavy duty mills at your local market if you are in Nigeria. Yes, you have your health and hygiene concerns but most of the mill operators actually keep their mills clean. And they let you bring your own water and containers. So there you go!

    Cooking Directions

    1. Blend the beans, tatashe or tomato puree, onions, crayfish, habanero pepper and ground nutmeg together with some of the water and pour the mix into a big enough bowl.
    2. Add the vegetable oil and the bone marrow stock (if this is what you have chosen to add to your moi moi).
    3. Slowly add the remaining water and stir the mixture at the same time till you get a good mix of all the ingredients.
    4. Add salt to taste and stir very well.
    5. Note: Moi Moi is one of the Nigerian food recipes that is prepared cold. All the mixing and adding of ingredients is done off the stove. That is to say, once you start cooking, there is no going back! You cannot decide to add more salt or seasoning or a new ingredient later. So getting it right at the mixing stage is very important.
    6. Pad the base of a big pot, pour some water and set on the stove. The depth of the water should be at most 1 inch.
    7. Dish the Moi moi mix into containers of your choice, add egg/bone marrow/corned beef to each container, seal/cover and set them in the pot.
    8. Add as small quantity of water as possible at a time while cooking the Moi Moi as detailed in preparation and use of moi moi containers so that the moi moi will not become watery when done. This is the case especially when using aluminium foil or uma leaves.
    9. The length of time you will cook your Moi Moi depends on the quantity and the Moi Moi container you used.
      The Moi Moi that gets done quickest is the one wrapped in Uma or Banana leaves, followed by Moi Moi wrapped in aluminum foils then the one that takes.
    10. most times Moi Moi cooked is cooked in aluminium or plastic plates.
    11. But whatever Moi Moi container you use, it is advisable to cook your Moi Moi for at least 1 hour, before checking it. Confirm that it is done by putting a knife through it, if the knife is stained with Moi Moi paste, then the Moi Moi is not done, but if the knife just has a slight smear of Moi Moi, then it's done. Also, when you cut through the Moi Moi, the insides will be set and not watery.
    1. If you are cooking a few wraps of Moi Moi in a small pot on high heat, then it will only take about 45 minutes to get done while when you are cooking a large pot of Moi Moi, it will definitely take more than one hour.

    Serve with chilled fruit juice, or coconut juice.

    Why do people eat placenta? By Dr Frankie Phillips - Registered dietitian and public health nutritionist



    What is the placenta for?

    The placenta, which is sometimes called the ‘after birth’ is an organ attached to the womb lining. It grows after conception and, during the course of pregnancy, it passes oxygen, nutrients and hormones from the mother’s blood supply, via the umbilical cord, to the baby. Waste products from the baby’s body, such as carbon dioxide, are transported out to the placenta and the placenta also gives some protection against bacterial infections from the mother.
    After a baby is born, the placenta is no longer needed and the mother will ‘deliver’ it, or during a Caesarean section, the doctor lifts out the placenta.  Midwives check the placenta is complete to ensure no risks to the mother.

    Wasted or wanted?

    In many cases, the placenta is disposed of after the birth. However, there appears to be growing interest in saving the placenta and consuming it, as it has been suggested that there may be some benefits to the mother. Although there are records of this practice through history, with dried placenta being used in Chinese medicine, precise numbers are not known. What is clear is that the number of people interested in ‘placentophagy’, literally ‘eating the placenta’ has increased in the last decade.


    Are there any benefits (or dangers) from eating the placenta?

    While there have not yet been any controlled trials to show whether eating the placenta gives any nutritional or health benefits, there is widespread anecdotal support for the practice of placentophagy.
    Eating the placenta is purported to boost energy levels, help with breast milk quality, as well as helping hormonal balance, which can lower risk of postnatal depression, post-delivery pain, insomnia, promote skin elasticity, replenish iron stores and help with baby bonding. That is some list! However appealing it may seem, there is scant evidence, and a review of ten studies found that there was no data to support the claims, nor were there any studies looking at the risks.
    Women are rightly cautious about what they eat and drink during pregnancy and while breastfeeding, but it is worth noting that when it comes to consuming a placenta there is a lack of evidence of its benefits and potential dangers. 

    How is placenta consumed?

    A number of preparations for the placenta have been reported. These include: putting a chunk of raw placenta onto the gum; using the fresh raw placenta to make a ‘smoothie’ with fruits; cooking the fresh placenta, e.g. stir frying, in a similar way to using fresh meat or making a pâté. Alternatively, the placenta may be dried and made into capsules, or soaked in alcohol to make a tincture. 

    The future of placentophagy

    In the UK, there are a small number of companies that offer the means to prepare placenta pills or smoothies, however, there have been some concerns, from trading standards, about the safety of the practice, citing contamination with bacteria during delivery as a possible risk, and unless it's stored properly, like all fresh foodstuffs, placentas can go ‘off’.
    While there is no consensus among midwives about eating placenta, and mothers who wish to keep the placenta could potentially be supported in their decision, the current lack of credible research on the health benefits means that the jury is still out on this matter.
