How does it work?
-Boosting the immune system
The immune system is the mechanism by which the body fights infection. Daily our immune system needs to work optimal to combat foreign substances that enter our bodies, this place tremendous strain on our immune system and makes us vulnerable and disturbs the balance between the bacterial species that are naturally present in our system and the pathogens that enter our body causing us to contract infections.
By taking Colostrum we can help support the immune system due to the multiple immune factors and natural antibiotic properties present in Colostrum. The many growth factors in Colostrum can further offer a broad spectrum boost to the body to encourage optimum health. Studies have shown that Colostrum helps to prevent infection in two ways, first by inhibiting the intestinal attachment and secondly by killing the bacteria itself. Very effective in the treatment of ‘travel tummy’ and highly recommended to take while travelling aboard as you are exposed to even more widespread food and waterborne bacteria. Colostrum strengthens the body’s immune system, helping it to not only fight attacks from bacteria but also from viruses.
Evidence of the anti-aging effect of Colostrum
In The American Journal of Natural Medicine (March 1998), Dr. Zoltan Rona, referring to the growth factors in Colostrum, cites a study which was published in the New England Journal of Medicine (323:1-6, 1990). In the study, Dr. Daniel Rudman treated 26 men between the ages of 61 and 80 with GH. Dr. Rudman found a decrease in body fat, an increase in bone density and lean muscle mass, and thicker, more elastic skin, changes Dr. Rudman said were equivalent to those incurred over a 10 to 20 year period of ageing. Colostrum is unique because it is the only substance that offers the anti-aging hormones in a perfect combination and not in isolation. It rejuvenates the declining Human growth hormone which results in smoother skin with more elasticity, more stamina and lean muscle, improved nutritional uptake by the body, elevated mood and outlook and mental clarity, combined with a stronger immunity and improved general health it improves your general lifestyle and energy levels.
-Benefits for Athletes and people recovering from illness
The rich Insulin-like growth factor 1(IGF1) in Colostrum stimulate protein synthesis which has shown in studies to improve the performance of athletes through improved muscle power and endurance and the reduced recovery time. Colostrum contains Transforming Growth factors, Insulin –like growth factors and epithelial growth factors. The transforming growth factors (TgF) has shown to repair and heal connective tissue, especially in joints, while the insulin –like (IgF) growth factors supports the growth of lean muscle mass and Epithelial Growth factor(EgF), which stimulates normal skin growth. These growth factors occur naturally in our bodies but as we age s the body’s ability to produce these factors declines. Using Colostrum boosts growth factors.
These healing properties also assist people in recovery from surgery and illness and after chemo- therapy.
In conclusion a quote from Dr Robert Preston, from the International Institute of Nutritional Research.
‘Colostrum is so safe, it has been prepared by nature as the first food for infants. It would be hard to imagine any nutritional substance more natural or beneficial.’
