Colostrum – A Simple Way To Boost Our Immune System

Colostrum is a special immune active fluid produced and secreted by the mammary glands of humans, cows, and other mammals for several days after giving birth.

It’s extremely nutritious and loaded with fats, proteins, carbohydrates, digestive enzymes, immune boosting proteins (lactoferrin, antibodies, growth factors), nucleotides, vitamins and minerals all of which will promote and support the growth and health in infants and newborn animals.

Colostrum is not only an important source of vital nutrients to help promote growth and build the body and immune system in newborns….but it can also be consumed at other points in life as well, most commonly from supplemental intake, to also support our immune system and health as we grow up.

As a matter of fact, the research is showing us that taking bovine colostrum supplements may boost our immune systems, improve our digestive health and fight infections in our body.

Bovine Colostrum, which is similar to human colostrum, and comes specifically from pasture-fed cows is known to contain highly concentrated immune system supportive immunoglobulins that are specific to many human antibodies, such as Immunoglobulin G (IgG).  IgG is the most common type of antibody found in circulation and represents about 75% of the serum antibodies in our body.  

Some additional health benefits for adults using bovine colostrum supplementation are:

  • Anti-cancer
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-oxidant
  • Help to improve Insulin Resistance
  • Help Leaky Gut
  • Muscle Growth
  • Repair of damaged muscles and ligaments

Of course, not all Colostrum Supplements are the same

Many commercial colostrum products may be rapidly processed using high heat which can damage the immune and health promoting constituents in the colostrum, so you want to make sure the colostrum you use from a supplement comes from a low heat process that will preserve the broad array of protein molecules, including the naturally occurring immunoglobulins (IgG) that will support your immune system. 
When colostrum is obtained from a high quality source, it can be an excellent immune support containing dietary supplement that is loaded with naturally occurring amino acids, lactoferrin and immunoglobulins to help boost your immune system! 

Make it a Healthy Day!!
