Digestive Disorders and Colostrum

Colostrum is a special substance secreted by the mammary glands of all mammals near the time of birthing. It was designed by nature over a period of 150 million years of evolution to promote health, strength, and vitality in the newborn. If you breastfed colostrum was your first meal. Colostrum contains a multitude of healthful components that work for adults as well as the newborn. Colostrum for human use is harvested from dairy cattle, after the calves have been given an amount adequate for their needs. In the newborn, colostrum, with its hundreds of healthful components working together in nature's perfect harmony, awakens, stimulates, regulates and maintains all body systems, and the same healthful components work synergistically to restore homeostasis (the dynamic balance of all body functions) when used as a supplement by adults.

Colostrum is a child of nature, conceived, reared, and educated over an estimated time span of 150 million years. One of the tools that nature uses to promote health, is its incredibly complex, synergistic, 150 million year old child, colostrum. Colostrum was present at your birth (if not you have probably had unnecessary health issues throughout life). Colostrum knew what you needed to get your biosystems up and running right, including the digestive tract. Colostrum has no known side effects. Only colostrum harvested soon after calving provides all the benefit that colostrum was designed for. Highest quality colostrum harvested within six hours post calving can be ordered online at www.synertekcolostrum.com or www.firstmilking.com.

The Science

"Following birth, the infant gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach and small intestine) undergoes profound growth, changes and functional maturation. These changes are apparently related to the onset of colostrum ingestion... This is due to the hormones and growth-promoting peptides, such as insulin, cortisol, epidermal growth factor (EGF) and insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) found at high concentrations in maternal colostrum... Transforming Growth Factors (found in colostrum) are polypeptides which promote cell proliferation, tissue repair and maintenance (wound healing) and embryonic development. Dr. F.J. Ballard, et al, found bovine colostrum contained up to 100 times the mitogenic potency of human colostrum." -- Beth Ley, PhD, Colostrum, Nature's Gift to the Immune System

"Recent studies suggest that colostral fractions, or individual peptides present in colostrum, might be useful for the treatment of a wide variety of gastrointestinal conditions..." -- Bovine Colostrum and Healing in the Gastrointestinal Tract,
American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Vol. 72, No. 1, 5-14, July 2000

"Several colostrum components stimulate wound healing. Nucleotides, EgF, TgF, and IgF-1 stimulate skin growth and cellular growth and repair by direct action on DNA and RNA. These growth factors facilitate the healing of tissues damaged by ulcers, trauma, burns, surgery, or inflammatory disease. Colostrum's wound-healing properties specifically benefit the skin, muscle, cartilage, bone, and nerve cells." -- Zoltan Rona, M.D., The American Journal of Natural Medicine, Mar. 1998

"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

Anti-inflammatory agents in colostrum: Colostrum contains lactoferrin, which defends against infection and cancerous tumors. It is also anti-inflammatory. Colostrum contains interlukin-10, which reduces inflammation caused by arthritis, infection or injury whether from surgery or trauma.


" I am telling everyone about this site. Would be happy to be emailed (shanjo@ntlworld.com) by customers or prospective customers to confirm what is said here. Not only is this the best place to shop but the advice is excellent, questions are answered, and the colostrum genuinely does work." -- Carole Horsman, United Kingdom
