The immune and growth factors
found in bovine Colostrum are virtually
identical to human Colostrum, the immune
factors are reportedly up to 4 times richer.
Colostrum is high in carbohydrates, protein and
antibodies, and low in fat, which human
newborns may find difficult to digest.
Colostrum also contains Endorphins,
Interferons, Interleukins, Lactoferrin,
Transferrin, Biotin, L-Carnitine, Melatonine,
Insuline, Lysozyme, C3, C4 and Orosomucoid,
a-1-Fetoproteine, a-1-Antitrypsine, Prolaktine,
Xanthin Oxidase, Lactoperoxidase, Proline-rich
Polypeptides (PRP) and many more.
Newborns have very small digestive systems, and
colostrum delivers its nutrients in a very
concentrated low-volume form. It has a mild
laxative effect, encouraging the passing of the
baby's first stool, called meconium. This
clears excess bilirubin, a waste product of
dead red blood cells, from the infant's body
and helps prevent jaundice.
Human colostrum, if it were
available, would be ideal to support the immune
systems of individuals of all ages. However, in
the absence of that option, bovine (cow)
colostrum is the next best source. Bovine
colostrum has been compared to the universal
blood type O, which can be accepted by and
benefit all humans. In fact, bovine colostrum
can be used to promote passive interspecies
immunity to virtually all mammals, including
Researchers in the US and Japan have verified,
in laboratory analysis, that the most important
immune and growth factors in cows are identical
in molecular combination to humans and are not
species specific, meaning that they are
transferable from one species to another.
Furthermore, dairy cows produce an abundance of
colostrum more than enough to supply human
needs without depriving newborn
