What is Colostrum?
Colostrum is the ﬁrst milk produced by all female mammals for their offspring.
Colostrum is essential for the survival of the newborn.
lipidic and glucidic factors,
nucleosides that promote normal cell growth,
DNA synthesis, fat utilization and increased mental acuity.
Bovine colostrum has an identical structure to the
natural colostrum produced by humans.
Research has shown that Bovine Colostrum:
- improves gut heath
- improves nutrient absorption
- increases energy
- reduces inflammation
Trials show that Colostrum;
- repairs the gut
- it is far superior to restoring your gut ﬂora
than using probiotics.
- Colostrum provides over 100 times the amount
immunoglobulins as regular milk
Colostrum is Highly Valued & Widely Used.
For hundred of years British dairy farmers have known about he beneﬁts of colostrum and made it into a desert called “Beestings Pudding”. Ayuverdic physicians in India have used colostrum for centuries. It’s highly valued by Masai herdsmen in Kenya. It’s also used widely in Finland and Scandinavia. Now in the UK elite athletes and top international sports teams take colostrum as an essential part of their ﬁtness program.
Colostrum Boosts Natural Killer Cells
Colostrum provides over 100 times the amount of immunoglobulins as regular milk. Colostrum is also rich in transfer factors that educate and modulate the immune system and successfully teach it to recognize speciﬁc antigens. These transfer factors also help coordinate the immune system to be able to recognize the diﬀerence between normal tissue and pathological microbes or abnormal tissue growth. These important transfer factors include hydrogen peroxide and immunoglobin G (IgG). The transfer factors from colostrum are able to boost natural killer cell (NK) activity and calm a hyperactive immune system through activating suppressor T cells. This improves the intelligence of the immune system and allows it to function with greater eﬃciency. These transfer factors also act as a catalytic memory agent for the immune system to alert naive immune cells of an impending danger.
Our Colostrum is 100% Organic & Certified Free From Contaminants
Colostrum is an extremely fragile substance full of live molecules. Most colostrum processing destroys these components rendering it all but useless. IgBioscience colostrum uses a unique and delicate process to ensure the survival of all the active ingredients. It’s also 100% organic and certiﬁed free from any contaminants. You can’t source a purer or more eﬀective colostrum in the UK.
Colostrum – A Natural Gut Healer
Colostrum – A Natural Gut Healer Dr. Andrew Keech, PhD, DSC describes exactly what colostrum does and why it’s designed to be the first food people and other mammals eat. He describes how colostrum starts signaling a number of different reactions in the body. He also describes the benefit of bovine colostrum for adults.
- Epithelial growth factor (EGF)
- Insulin-like growth factor-I and II (IGF-1 and IGF-II)
- Fibroblast growth factor (FGF)
- Platelet-derived growth factor PDGF)
- Transforming growth factors A & B (TGF-A and B)
- Growth hormone (GH)
These all help stimulate cell and tissue growth by stimulating DNA formation. Genetically engineered versions of IGF-1 and GH are now marketed as longevity and AIDS drugs. They are found naturally and in high concentrations in colostrum.
Several studies show that these growth factors are capable of increasing T-cell production, accelerate healing, balance blood glucose, reduce insulin need, increase muscle and bone growth and repair while metabolising fat for fuel. Studies have also shown that dairy colostrum can increase the serum levels of IGF-1 in male athletes. As it has been shown that IGF-1 in colostrum is only absorbed into the blood stream in fragmented segments, it is likely that this increase in serum IGF-1 levels occurs via the combination of training, conditioning of the digestive tract and possible enhanced stimulation of human IGF-1 synthesis via the intestinal mucosa.
