In a series of Instagram Story posts, Kailyn revealed that she was drinking a smoothie, asking her fans to guess what she was drinking.

Later in the day, she showed her glass half-empty, and captioned the post: “If you guessed my placenta, you’re right! Blended with fresh fruit & almond milk. Couldn’t taste the placenta at all!”

As People reported, there are some mixed research results regarding the benefits of consuming placenta: “Though some research claims the practice is beneficial, Dr. Sara Swift, an OB-GYN in Green Bay, Wisconsin, previously weighed in on the matter and told People that placenta eating ‘gets a big fat no from me.’ ‘There is no proven scientific evidence that placentophagy is beneficial — no increase in breastmilk production, as it can actually have the opposite effect, and no benefit in mood, etc.,” the outlet reports.

She gave birth to her fourth son on July 30, but did not yet reveal the name. Kailyn also has sons Isaac Elliot, 10, Lincoln Marshall, 6, and Lux Russell, 2.

Kailyn Lowry controversially confirmed that she would not give her kids this if it becomes available…
