WHAT IS COLOSTRUM?


Colostrum (also known as beestings or first milk or "immune milk") is a form of milk produced by the mammary glands of mammals in late pregnancy. Most species will generate colostrum within one day of giving birth. [Wikipedia]


Colostrum is a pre-milk fluid secreted by a mammalian mother after giving birth during the first 24-36 hours of lactation. Rich in proteins, growth factors and immune factors


However, as human colostrums is not readily available, we have to rely on other sources. Research has shown that colostrums from dairy cows (bovine colostrums) is very similar to human colostrums and is a safe alternative. In fact, it has been reported that bovine colostrums is up to forty times richer in immune factors compared to human colostrums.


 
 

BOVINE COLOSTRUM IS SAFE FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION


Research has shown that bovine colostrum is safe and easily  assimilable by humans. There have been no contra-indications, or major side effects reported through thousands of years of human use of bovine colostrum. 


"Dr. Robert Preston

International Institute of Nutritional Research"



Colostrum was used in ancient times by different cultures for both nourishment and remedial purposes. In an apocryphal work entitled "The Book of Sirach" (written sometime between 300-275 BC), this "first milk" from a female animal who had just given birth, was ranked up there with wheat, honey, salt, water, fire and iron as being some of the "necessities of life."
