Immune System Health and Accelerated Healing
Colostrum is a natural whole food that is popularly taken in supplement form for its wide array of nutritional benefits. Colostrum is produced in the breasts of cows, humans, and other types of animals during the first couple days after giving birth. A milky fluid, colostrum appears before true milk is actually produced in the breasts. According to studies, nutrient-rich colostrums can contain as much as 100 times the antibody levels that regular cow milk contains. Just as colostrum benefits small infants after birth, it can also enhance adults with its proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals.
The Benefits of Colostrum
Bovine (cow) colostrum is biologically transferrable to humans, making it an ideal supplement for people who want to obtain its healthful benefits. Colostrum contains what scientists dub PRPs. PRPs are small chains of amino acids that benefit the body in a myriad of ways. Research has demonstrated that colostrum's PRPs are important for immune system health and function. PRPs have the ability to ramp up the immune system to fight infection. Moreover, PRPs appear to have a regulatory effect as they can turn down the immune system response in the case of autoimmune disorders.
Colostrum also plays a crucial role in the repair of tissues and damage. In fact, while warding off infection, colostrum also promotes healing of any tissue the infection may have damaged. Colostrum is also important for maintaining gut health. Many people with chronic gut issues like Crohn's disease or irritable bowel syndrome find their symptoms improve upon taking colostrum. Colostrum also improves nutrient absorption in the digestive tract. NuMedica ImmunoG PRP is a rich source of colostrum and its healing molecules.
