Colostrum supports healthy growth and development and a naturally responsive immune system. It provides critical immune factors and complex lipids for overall health and wellbeing.
To obtain the maximum benefits of colostrum, it is important that as much natural bioactive colostrum is delivered to the intestine and bowel as possible. By coating the colostrum particles with the unique Alpha Lipid extract they are protected as they pass through the harsh stomach environment. The Alpha Lipid then assist the colostrum particles to more effectively dissolve in the intestinal fluids.
Colostrum, contains Anti-inflammatory Activity
Lactoferrin, a compound contained in colostrum, is a protein required for the metabolism of iron. Organs and cells in the body have receptors for this protein to bind to and inhibit autoimmune responses and imflammation triggered by problems like leaky gut.
Colostrum is associated with the reduced frequency from infection of the following bacteria: Acinetobacter baumanii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E.coli, and Salmonella.
Bovine colostrum (from cows) activates the production of GcMAF in the human body. GcMAF repairs tissue from damage, and supports the immune system in preventing infection, including the growth and spread of cancer
Lactoferrin activities T-cells, regulates antigen pathways, and promotes enzyme activity. Lactoferrin also exhibits strong antioxidant and detoxification properties which reduce systemic inflammation. As a result, the existence of lactoferrin in the body inhibits inflammatory immune responses and may reduce the risk of cancer and disease.
As a results of lactoferrin’s ability to reduce inflammation and scavenge free radicals, colostrum containing lactoferrin protects the body from invading compounds such as pathogen-containing water and food supply, and chemically preserved and antibiotic-ridden foods. The lymphatic system becomes less hindered by toxic compounds pushed from the intestines and into lymph nodes. As a results, colostrum may also reduce the duration of cold and flue-like symptoms
Colostrum, exhibits Cancer Defence Activity
The immune system is the body’s best defense mechamism for maintaining the health of the whole body. Comparable to a surveillance system, a strong immune system requires numerous factors to function properly. Colostrum promotes the development of a strong immune defense and can equip the body to defend against cancer.
Colostrum Activates GcMAF Production
A specific colostrum relating to cows-bovine colostrum – activates the production of GcMAF in the human body. GcMAF (vitamin D-derived binding protein macrophage activating factor) is crucial for a healthy functioning immune system. GcMAF repairs tissue from damage, and supports the immune system in preventing infection, including the growth and spread of cancer.
Specific cancers related to GcMAF production include colorectal, bladder and ovarian, among many others.
The production of GcMAF stimulated by bovine colostrum can help treat chronic fatigue syndrome and prevent infection. Although further clinical testing is required, colostrum may be recommended as an immunotheraphy strategy without unintended side effects.
Hyperimmune bovine colostrum, from cows treated with vaccines can be easily absorbed by the human gastrointestinal tract and used to strengthen our immune response, but more research may be needed. However, encouraging clinical results show that the lactoferrin in bovine colostrum does in fact activate cytokines, cell proliferation, and boost detoxication in human.
