Contents of Colostrum
What Does it Contain and How Does it Work?
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. Colostrum contains the following protecting, regulating, and support factors:
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.
