IgBioscience 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.

Colostrum contains:

  • lipidic and glucidic factors
  • oligosaccharides
  • antimicrobials
  • cytokines
  • nucleosides that promote normal cell growth
  • DNA synthesis, fat utilization, and increased mental acuity.

Bovine colostrum

It has an identical structure to the natural colostrum produced by humans. Research has shown that Bovine Colostrum:

  • improves gut health
  • 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 of immunoglobulins as regular milk

Colostrum is Highly Valued & Widely Used.

For hundreds of years, British dairy farmers have known about the benefits of colostrum and made it into a dessert called “Beestings Pudding”. Ayurvedic 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 is Highly Valued & Widely Used.

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, Ph.D., DSC describes exactly what colostrum does and why it’s designed to be the first food people and other mammals eat. He describes how the colostrum starts signaling a number of different reactions in the body. He also describes the benefit of bovine colostrum for adults.

Growth Factors

  • 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.

Glossary

Cytokines

Interleukins that regulate the duration and intensity of the immune response, are responsible for cell to cell communication, boost T-cell activity and the production of immunoglobulins. Interleukin-10 is strongly anti-inflammatory, especially in connective tissue disorders such as arthritis.

Enzymes

Lactoperoxidase-thiocyanate, peroxidase and xanthine oxidase destroy bacteria by releasing of hydrogen peroxide.

Immunoglobulins(A, D, E, G and M)

The most abundant of the immune factors found in colostrum; IgG neutralises toxins and microbes in the lymph and circulatory system; IgM destroys bacteria while IgE and IgD are highly antiviral.

Lactoferrin

An antiviral, anti-bacterial, iron-binding protein with therapeutic effects in HIV, Cytomegalovirus, herpes, Chronic fatigue Syndrome, Candida albicans and other infections. Lactoferrin helps deprive pathogens of the iron they require to reproduce and releases iron into the red blood cells enhancing oxygenation of tissues. Lactoferrin also modulates cytokine release and receptors have been found on blood cells such lymphocytes, monocytes, macrophages and platelets.

Leukocytes

Stimulate the production of interferon which slows viral reproduction and penetration of cell walls.

Lysozyme

A hydrolyzing agent and immune system booster capable of destroying bacteria and viruses on contact. This compound destroys the peptidoglycan layer of bacterial cell walls leading to the death of such organisms (both gram-positive and gram-negative organisms are affected).

Oligo-polysaccharides and Glycoconjugates

Attract and bind to major enteric pathogens such as Strep., E. coli, Salmonella, Cryptosporidia, Giardia, Entamoeba, Shigella, Clostridium difficile Toxins A & B and Cholera preventing them from attaching or entering the mucous membranes.

Orotic Acid

Stops the formation of pyrimidine nucleotides and prevents haemolytic anemia.

Other Immune Factors

Some of the documented immune factors include secretory IgA, IgA Specific Helper, B Lactoglobulin, Lactalbumin, Albumin, Prealbumin, Alpha 1-Antitripsin, Alpha 1-Fetoprotein, Alpha 2-macroglobulin, Alpha 2-AP Glycoprotein, C3, C4 and Orosomucoids.

Proline-Rich Polypeptides (PRPs)

These are hormones or hormone-like substances that appear to help regulate some functions of the thymus gland. They appear to stimulate an underactive immune system or inhibit an overactive immune system in autoimmune conditions such as multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, scleroderma, chronic fatigue syndrome and some allergies and hyperreactive conditions such as asthma, urticaria and allergic rhinitis (hay fever)

Trypsin and Protease Inhibitors

Prevent the destruction of immune and growth factors in colostrum from being broken down in the GI tract; they also prevent Helicobacter pylori from attaching to the walls of the stomach and can have a beneficial role in the treatment of peptic ulcers.
