"Bovine colostrum contains TGF – ß, which has an important suppressing effect on cytotoxic substances (anti-inflammatory). It suppresses the cellgrowth of human osteosarcoma – (cancer) cells by 75 %. It is a mediator of fibrosis and angiogenesis (healing of the heart muscle und of the blood vessels) ,(Roberts et. Al. 1986), promotes wound healing (Sporn et. Al ...,1983) and the building of bones. Centrella et. al ., 1987)".

"Concentration of lactoferrin and transferrin in bovine colostrum was shown to be necessary to transport iron to the blood. High concentration of both substances were found in the first milking after birth."
