Colostrum is an all-natural substance that is becoming a popular health supplement for those of all ages.
As is the growing trend in health care, supplements such as colostrum are the frontline in treating and preventing illness.
Colostrum has a modulating effect on the immune system including the stimulating of your cell population.
Due to the years of fighting off diseases, your immune system can become compromised and less able to protect you from unwanted invaders. By taking a daily dose of a particular type of colostrum you’re are helping to reset and arm your immune system, much like the defragging of your computer.
It is therefore critically important that the colostrum you drink must be 1st milking, high peptide, pure colostrum. Remember, it is the high peptide content that helps support your immune function.
Colostrum is often referred to as “first milk”. It is the first milk produced by all mammals (including humans) before the breast milk becomes available and is usually only present for up to 2 weeks after birth. Colostrum is incredibly dense with nutrition. It is high in carbohydrates, protein and antibodies while also being low in fat. Colostrum doesn’t look like normal breast milk, as it is generally thick and yellowy or even orange in color.
Colostrum is not species specific and is the same in every mammal. Therefore it can provide benefits to any mammal including humans. Humans cannot produce enough colostrum for commercial production so cows’ (bovine) colostrum is used. As cows produce on average 35 litres of colostrum per calf there is ample to nourish the calf as well as leaving sufficient for commercial collection. It is very important that the colostrum is collected within a small time frame of 16 hours after birth.
First milking, 16 hour pure colostrum, produces the highest peptide content and it is the high peptide content that helps to modulate the immune function so important in fighting disease and staying healthy.
This naturally produced food can now be purchased as a health supplement.
