"Placenta! Placenta! Placenta!" the actress exclaimed, before adding that she adds bits of hers into a shake every day.
"My doula cut it up in 20 pieces and I just made smoothies," Hoffman explained.
If that doesn't exactly sound super appetizing to you, Hoffman insists that it's tasty, despite what you might think. "You mix it with strawberries, bananas, tons of fruit. You can't taste it, but you can feel it," she says.
We should probably take her word for it, considering the fact that so many women are starting to get on the placenta-eating bandwagon. Here in the U.S., downing placenta pills or including it in meals is actually becoming more and more popular, and often cited as being a miracle-worker when it comes to increasing milk flow, overall energy and (perhaps best of all) combatting postpartum depression. And when it comes to the celeb world, Alicia Silverstone and January Jones are just a few of the big names to advocate placenta-eating in recent years.
Still, science has yet to officially prove this one a thing, since no official studies have truly examined the benefits, and placenta pills aren't actually approved by the FDA.
