So, what is human placental protein?

Human placental protein is a nutrient-dense ingredient derived from the placenta, the organ that connects a developing fetus to its mother's uterine wall. This protein is rich in amino acids, growth factors, and other bioactive compounds that are essential for fetal development and growth. As a food ingredient, human placental protein has been used in traditional medicine for its supposed health benefits, including improved immune function, hormone regulation, and anti-aging effects. While some research has suggested potential benefits, there is limited scientific evidence to support these claims. As such, the use of human placental protein in food products remains controversial.
