A question I am often asked is whether anything is added to the capsules. In the Traditional Chinese method of preparation, nothing is actually added to the placenta or the capsules, however, two spices are used during the steaming process in the water below.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, both these herbs are warming herbs and complement the properties of the placenta.
Ginger is used to help mask the aroma during the steaming process while Myrrh is used to pull the essence of the placenta back into it. This basically means the myrrh enhances the healing properties of the placenta.
