Bovine Colostrum for those with HIV or AIDSColostrum was your first meal. It is produced by the mammary glands before milk. All mammals produce colostrum for the newborn. Colostrum awakens, regulates, stimulates, and maintains all body systems. Colostrum provides protection against pathogens and is vital to the survival of newborns. Colostrum works for adults as well, fortifying the immune system and regulating the immune response. Colostrum for adult human use is harvested from dairy cows after the calves have been given an amount adequate to ensure their survivability, health, strength, and vitality. Colostrum builds health in many ways, and has no known side effects or contraindicatons with any medication. The use of Synertek colostrum has been shown to raise serum immune factors in humans by 50%. See Clinical Research. HIV is in a battle with the immune system. That is why strengthening the immune system is important. At the same time it makes sense to promote overall health as much as possible, and that is the natural function of colostrum. HIV specific hyperimmune colostrum shows especial promise (Antimicrob Agents Chemother. 2012 Aug;56(8):4310-9. doi: 10.1128/AAC.00453-12. Epub 2012 Jun 4.), but at this time it is unavailable, to my knowledge. There exists ambiguous, misleading advertising by at least one colostrum company that implies that their product is HIV specific hyperimmune, but before you buy it have them put in writing, "This product is HIV specific hyperimmune," and they will not do that, simply because it isn't. Hyperimmune colostrum supplements are disallowed by the US government, under the premise that only drugs can treat, prevent, or cure any disease. Only colostrum harvested directly after the calf is born will provide the maximum benefit that colostrum is designed to. Highest quality colostrum harvested within six hours post calving can be ordered online at www.firstmilking.com or www.synertekcolostrum.com.
"Colostrum contains leukocytes, lactoferrin, lysozyme, and all of the immunoglobulins: IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG, and IgM. These components together combat bacteria, viruses, and yeast. Colostrum contains cytokines, lymphokines, and proline-rich polypeptides. These components work together to initiate the immune response, and regulate the intensity and duration of it... Without optimal immune protection we are susceptible to conditions ranging from the common cold, the flu, various stages of immune deficiency, cancer and even AIDS." (Beth Ley, PhD, COLOSTRUM: Nature’s Gift to the Immune System)
"Bovine colostrum is biologically transferable to all mammals, including humans. It is much higher in immune factors than human mother’s colostrum. Laboratory analyses of immune and growth factors from bovine colostrum are identical to those found in human colostrum, except that the levels of these factors are significantly higher in the bovine version... Immunoglobulins (A, D, E, G, and M) are the most abundant of the immune factors found in colostrum. IgG neutralizes toxins and microbes in the lymph and circulatory system. IgM destroys bacteria, while IgE and EgD are highly antiviral."(Dr. Zoltan Rona, American Journal of Natural Medicine)
"PRP, in bovine colostrum, has the same ability to regulate activity of the immune system as (do the) hormones of the thymus gland. It activates an underactive immune system, helping it move into action against disease-causing organisms." (Drs. Staroscik et. Al., Molecular Immunology)
"Immune factors in cow colostrum, when taken orally, are effective against disease-causing organisms in the intestinal tract. Ingestion of bovine colostrum’s immuoglobulins may be a new method of providing passive immunoprotection against a host of gut-associated disease-causing antigens (viral and bacterial)." (Dr. R. McClead, et al., Pediatrics Research)
