Colostrum is the pre-milk fluid produced from the mother’s mammary glands during the first 24-48 hours after birth. It provides life-supporting immune and growth factors that insures the health and vitality of the newborn.
Research has shown that Colostrum has powerful natural immune and growth factors that bring the body to a state of homeostasis. Colostrum helps us combat disease-causing organisms such as bacteria, viruses, yeasts and parasites; it also enables us to resist the harmful effects of pollutants, contaminants and allergens where they attack us.
Colostrum is highly beneficial in the unique manner in which it provides the body with its numerous immune factors. Most infectious disease-causing organisms enter the body through the mucous membranes of the intestinal tract. In order to remain healthy, it is critical that we are able to combat these disease-causing organisms. Clinical research in England in 1980 revealed that a high percentage of the antibodies and immunoglobulins present in Colostrum are believed not to be absorbed but remain in the intestinal tract where they attack disease-causing organisms before they penetrate the body and cause disease. The remainder are believed to be absorbed and distributed to assist in our internal defense processes.
The onset of almost all infectious and degenerative disease, is preceded or accompanied by lowered immune system function. Studies have shown colostrum contains powerful immune factors (immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, cytokines, etc.) that work to restore immune function. In addition colostrum’s growth factors help heal the bowel lining to prevent further penetration and harm from harmful organisms.
Medical studies have shown that Colostrum’s growth factors can help the body regenerate and accelerate normal growth of aged or injured muscle, bone, cartilage, skin collagen and nerve tissue; help burn fat for fuel instead of muscle tissue in times of dieting; help build and retain lean muscle; repair our body’s vital DNA and RNA; balance are regulate blood sugar levels; heal burns, surgeries, cuts, abrasions and mouth sores with topical application; control infection and pain associated with sensitive teeth and dental work; help regulate blood glucose levels and "brain chemicals", providing alertness and better concentration; and help regulate the brain’s "feel-good" chemicals (serotonin and dopamine) to brighten our moods.
