One of our clients who’s 71 and has been taking Immustem colostrum for many years, reported his own experience with his daughter, and the research that he has followed that supports the proposition that Colostrum boosts our immune systems:
“This particular interest started after my daughter returned from Italy five weeks ago with a temperature, sore throat, dry cough and fatigue. Although I was exposed to her coughing I have developed no symptoms, even at the age of 71 (I look forward to antibody testing). As a result I have revisited the immune health research …at Aberystwyth University and some further research funded by Nestlé.
The Aberystwyth studies showed less respiratory infection in young athletes over a three-month winter period compared with a milk powder placebo. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24200515/
(This is significant as high-level exercise is well known to depress the immune system – https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00394-017-1597-6)
The same researchers investigated the immune response using a skin test reaction to a novel antigen. The response to repeat exposure showed twice the immune response for the colostrum group compared with the placebo. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29274034”
