Kourtney Kardashian just loves her new beauty secret, her own placenta!

The 35-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star posted recently on her Instagram two of her placenta pills with the caption, "Yummy...PLACENTA pills! No joke...I will be sad when my placenta pills run out. They are life changing! #benefits #lookitup," Cosmopolitan quotes.

Kourtney's been eating her own placenta ever since giving birth to the new addition to her and Scott Disick's family, Reign Aston just over a month ago. Reign is their third child following Penelope, 2, and Mason, 5.

Taking a quick trip back to anatomy, the placenta is a temporary part of the female anatomy that grows around the uterus during pregnancy where it serves as a "house" for the baby where it protects from bodily wastes and provides the needed nutrients and oxygen. Though there is no solid scientific and medical evidence to prove it, placenta is believed to give one energy, can help reduce bleeding, helps produce milk and helps fight off postpartum depression. Most women would eat the placenta straight up but the eldest Kardashian takes her own placenta in capsules.

This is not the only time Kourtney is linked with placentas. According to US Weekly and E!, there was one episode in Keeping Up With The Kardashians that involved Kourtney and Kim pranking their family to eat a placenta they bought off the Internet when in fact it was just beef brisket.

Aside from Kourtney, other mom celebrities known for eating their own placenta are January Jones and Kim Zolciak.

When it came to Kourtney eating more in the future, the Kardashian star admits that she has no plans to have more children with Scott Disick again. According to a source Kourtney told Scott. "Three kids I can handle on my own - I don't need a fourth," quotes Hollywood Life.
