Colostrum is the first of the fluids secreted by all mammals for a short time following birth. This secretion is not considered milk, because it has many components. Colostrum is very complex in its makeup and is much richer than milk. Our CHF #40 provides you with colostrum in an easy-to-swallow capsule.
Colostrum may help with the immune system, digestion, nutrient absorption, anti-aging benefits, energy, and healing. It also may help with allergies, asthma, colds, flu, sinusitis, viral bronchitis, ear infections, candidiasis, fibromyalgia, lupus, chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, autism and many other ailments.
Professor Uruakpa from the Department of Food Science of the University of Manitoba in Canada has done some research on colostrum and has discovered that, “Colostrum, a nutrient-rich fluid produced by female mammals immediately after giving birth, is loaded with immune, growth and tissue repair factors. It is a complex biological fluid, which helps in the development of immunity in the newborn. It contains significant quantities of complement components that act as natural anti-microbial agents to actively stimulate the maturation of an infant’s immune system. Bovine colostrum, a raw material for immune milk preparations, can be used to treat or prevent infections of the gastrointestinal tract. It is possible that colostral preparations aimed at specific consumers may play a significant role in healthcare in the future. Besides providing immune support, colostrum has remarkable muscular-skeletal repair and growth capabilities. Studies have shown that colostrum is the only natural source of two major growth factors namely, transforming growth factors alpha and beta, and insulin-like growth factors 1 and 2. These growth factors have significant muscle and cartilage repair characteristics. They promote wound healing with practical implications for trauma and surgical patients. Colostral growth factors have multiple regenerative effects that extend to all structural body cells, such as the gut.”
