Colostrom – is the pre-milk fluid and is processed for use in supplements primarily for immune system benefits – COLOSTRUM.
It is shown to promote body growth and may help to combat the onset of many infectious and degenerative diseases caused by lowered immune system function.
Colostrum is especially rich in IgG, which is a critical antibody for general immunity to viral and microbial threats. Colostrum has also shown benefits in fat burning and weight control, also muscle / tissue regeneration.
As a weight loss product, the interest is in it’s ability to help in metabolizing fat for energy. It is easier for our body to burn muscle tissue than it is to burn fat, so it is important to balance the process by introducing elements that can help us burn fat cells.
Colostrum contains the compound IGF-1 which is produced abundantly in younger people, but production declines considerably as we age. Introducing IGF-1 through colostrum supplementation can assist our diet and exercise programs by promoting the reduction of fat cells ahead of muscle tissue.
Colostrum contains all five of the immunoglobulins found in humans, with significant amounts of the four important antibodies – IgG, IgM, IgA, and Secretory IgA.
Colostrum also contains cytokines which have been found to be extremely helpful for maintaining proper cellular function.
