The Younger star revealed she blended it into a smoothie shortly after welcoming her baby.
Two years ago, Hilary Duff made headlines after consuming he placenta from the birth of her daughter in the form of a smoothie.
Speaking on life style podcast Good For You, with Whitney Cummings, the 32-year-old said she waited about a month after the birth of her daughter Banks in 2018 and opted to whizz up the placenta with fruit. At the time, Hilary stated that it was “the most delightful smoothie I’ve ever had”.
Nowadays though, it appears Hilary has alterned her opinion on the matter, admitting she’s “completely repulsed by it.”
“I know it sounds gross, but it’s so badass a woman can grow a temporary organ - and then you can eat it!” she said.
And Hilary isn't alone, consuming one's own placenta has is an ancient Chinese tradition that has taken place since the 1500s - simply to energise new mums during an exhausting period. In recent years, it's been embraced by A-Listers like January Jones and Alicia Silverstone.
New mums choose to use the organ - which is known to grow in the uterus during pregnancy - by dehydrating it and having it put into capsules so it's easier to consume.
However, it appears the move has left fans of the star feeling uneasy.
"I was listening to a podcast with Hilary Duff and she talked about eating her placenta, and I had a stark realisation that somehow as a society we have normalized this small form of cannibalism," one worried Twitter user wrote.
"Just read that hilary duff drank her placenta in a smoothie... why would u even do such thing ew," a second added.
Meanwhile, others saw the health benefits behind the trend and noted that they were not fully opposed to consuming the human placenta.
"It has a lot of nutritional benefits, it's not like kourtney having it like a steak. I don't see the problem, might as well stop eating all animals," one commented in her defense.
