Colostrum is completely natural! Mother Nature knows what is good for us, and provides colostrum as our first meal. Who uses colostrum? Everyone who was breastfed at birth. And those of us who realize it's wonderful nutritional qualities continue using it. All mammals produce colostrum. Colostrum for use as a dietary supplement is milked from select dairy cows after the calves have consumed all they need to be healthy and strong. Cow colostrum is virtually identical to human colostrum but is more concentrated. Only colostrum harvested within about six hours of calving provides all the benefit that colostrum is designed to. After six hours the concentrations and the proportions of the components change and the synergistic balance is lost. Make sure that your colostrum is 100% pure and intact. The trend by many colostrum companies, is to "fractionate" colostrum in order to elevate levels of specific components (and lower the levels of others), and add foreign ingredients, and they claim that these measures improve colostrum. Synertek believes that God and nature perfected colostrum to the last detail and that man should be wise enough to recognize that fact, and leave it intact, unaltered, and 100% pure.
Immunoglobulins fight against bacteria, viruses, and yeast.
Colostrum contains immunoglobulins IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG, and Ig, M.
Leukocytes stimulate the production of interferon which slows viral production.
Lactoferrin defends against infection and cancerous tumors. It is also anti-inflammatory.
Lysozyme destroys bacteria and viruses.
Proline-rich polypeptides both initiate and suppress the immune response. Suppressing the immune system is required to prevent the immune system from attacking the body itself, as occurs with autoimmune diseases. (Ley)
Cytokines are interlukins that regulate the intensity and duration of the immune responses. They are highly antiviral and anti-tumorous.
Interlukin-10 reduces inflammation caused by arthritis, infection or injury whether from surgery or trauma.
Lymphokines regulate the immune response.
While young, the human body produces maximum amounts of growth factors. With increasing age less and less of growth factors are produced. This is one of the reasons that the physical body and the mind age, and why the supplementation of growth factors may slow or reverse aging.
