Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann drank placenta smoothies on last night's premiere of Don't Be Tardy.

After giving birth to her twins, Kane and Kaia, Zolciak and her husband, Atlanta Falcons player Kroy Biermann, sipped on smoothies made from the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star's placenta.

"In the episode, the nurse explains she's going to blend a piece of it in a smoothie. She makes two drinks: one for Kim and one for Kroy," Life & Style reported on July 18. "The athlete being the pro he is drinks it like a champ, and the pair are surprised when they sip and find that it doesn't taste bad."

Throughout the animal kingdom, mothers have been known to eat their placenta, but when it comes to the human race, the practice is somewhat new. Although the idea may seem a bit gross to some, it's actually beneficial to a mother's health.

Because the placenta is packed with nutrients, including iron, vitamins B6 and B12, estrogen and progesterone, eating it is a way for mothers to combat postpartum depression and stay energized after birth (a huge plus for Zolciak, who is a mother of six).

In Jan. 2014, two months after giving birth, Zolciak debuted her twins to Life & Style.

“Kaia is a diva, honey! She’s much more demanding. She loves to be snuggled all the time,” Zolciak said at the time. “And Kane is the easiest baby ever. Just feed him and change him and he’s happy. Their personalities are definitely very different.”
