The immune factors of Colostrum
The beginning of almost all infections and degenerative diseases such as cancer and including heart diseases is accompanied by a lowered immune function or such lowered immune function has been present prior to the disease. Studies have shown that colostrum contains highly effective immune factors (immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, cytokines, etc.) which help to restore the immune function.
Colostrum contains also PRP, which proved in clinical studies to enhance the under active immune system. At the same time it also aides in balancing the over-active immune system as is the case with autoimmune diseases - a condition in which the body attacks itself.
Doctors agree that many diseases originate in the intestines. Most of the antibodies and immunoglobulins, present in colostrum are not absorbed but stay in the intestinal tract and attack the disease-causing organisms there, before these can penetrate the defense mechanisms of the body and cause diseases. Additionally the growth factors present in the colostrum repair the mucous membranes of the intestine and prevent further damage.
Clinical studies have shown, that the growth factors in colostrum can help the body to:
