Who wants to drink horse placenta? Oh me me me!!! Ok, not really, at all. But apparently there are some people in Japan who do. Supposedly that black one pictured is the more potent version.
Now why someone would want to drink this. Aside from it’s delightful flavor (sure) it has an amazing list of health benefits, or so it claims. Some of its effects include skin whitening, headache and canker sore cures, lighter menstrual cramps, decreased sensitivity to cold, and an increase in hunger.
Obviously this is Japanese, as Americans want things to reduce their hunger and want to darken their skin. But I’m still disturbed that anyone in their right mind would want to eat a placenta, let alone drink it like a soda.Oh, and the price makes it even better. It’s supposed to be a daily treatment regimen, but the orange flavor costs $50 per bottle and the black is $100 a bottle.
Hand me a cucumber soda any day, but a placenta drink, I think I’ll pass. Surprisingly though, I may be alone, they’re already sold out of the black flavor.
