Colostrum is a milky fluid which is very nutritious and contains high levels of antibodies, which are proteins that help fight infections and bacteria. Colostrum is a breast fluid produce by mammals, commonly humans and cows. It promotes growth and health in infants and newborn animals. Bovine colostrum is similar to human colostrum and is packed full of vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, disease fighting proteins, growth hormones and digestive enzymes. Colostrum contains more nutrients than regular milk. Bovine colostrum contains macro nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. It’s especially high in protein compounds that regulate immune responses and promote growth, including lactoferrin, growth factors, and antibodies.
Antibody levels in bovine colostrum can be 100 times higher than levels in regular cow’s milk. These antibodies are known as Immunoglobulins (IgG).
Hero ingredients in colostrum:
- Lactoferrin is a protein involved in your body’s immune response to infections, including those caused by bacteria and viruses
- Growth factors are hormones that stimulate growth. Bovine colostrum is especially high in two protein-based hormones, insulin-like growth factors 1 and 2, or IGF-1 and IGF-2
- Antibodies are proteins, also known as immunoglobulins, used by your immune system to fight bacteria and viruses. Bovine colostrum is rich in the antibodies IgA, IgG, and IgM
