Unknown: Placenta food supplements are not studied or approved by the fda. We have no idea how it would affect your hypertension or your thyroid. Be safe and staybaway from it. Da.

Placental white: This compound derives from horse placenta and contains a variety of herbs; it seems safe in context of hypertension and thyroid disease, although not studied to be completely sure.
