Colostrum: Nature's Immune Booster
Have you ever wondered how a mother's immunity is transferred to her offspring? Infants are born with an intact immune system, but it receives a great boost in terms of weaponry and intelligence as the newborn receives its first meals.
Known as "mother's first milk", colostrum is secreted by the mammary glands of all female mammals during the first few days of lactation. It is a thick yellow fluid that is rich in protein, growth factors, and immune factors. Colostrum is unique among natural immune boosters because it contains essential nutrients and protease inhibitors that keep it from being destroyed by the processes of digestion.
Humans produce relatively small amounts of colostrum in the first two days after giving birth, but cows produce a plentiful supply (around nine gallons). Bovine colostrum can be transferred to all other mammals, and is four times richer in immune factors than human colostrum.
Colostrum has a long and distinguished history of medicinal use. Ayurvedic physicians have used colostrum as a treatment for thousands of years, and in the U.S., mainstream medical doctors routinely recommended colostrum as a natural antibiotic before the discovery of penicillin and sulfa drugs.
