Kim Zolciak Talks Drinking Placenta Smoothie: “It Was Rough”
Judging by her wigs, her nails, and of course, her boobs, Kim Zolciak doesn’t strike us as a woman who has much of a commitment to keeping things natural, but it looks like the buxom blonde may have surprised some fans with her choice to try on holistic medicine for size following the birth of twins Kane and Kaia.
Kim, who decided to drink her placenta in a smoothie following the birth, opened up about the experience to BravoTV.com, and, while it doesn’t sound nearly as palatable as her usual Pinot, she doesn’t make it sound as bad as we expected.
“To be honest with you, I can drink just about anything,” explains Kim. “I can drink wheatgrass, just because they say it's good for you. But mentally drinking the placenta smoothie was rough. But taste-wise, you would never know. It tasted kind of like a fruit smoothie with a little bit of a metallic taste at the end.”
While the taste may have left a little something to be desired, Kim says that she definitely felt the health benefits of drinking it right off the bat.
“I definitely feel like it really helped me. I had a lot of energy,” she says. “I was struggling with blood pressure problems after the delivery, so it really helped me.”
It may not become anyone’s go-to breakfast smoothie anytime soon, but we’re glad to hear Kim — who earns our unofficial medal for bravery for drinking it — found the experience to be a positive one.
Are you surprised that Kim decided to try out holistic medicine after her latest pregnancy?
