Colostrum is the first milk that mammals produce and is very important for the offspring, whether human or bovine. Humans can benefit from first-milking colostrum.
ShineOnHealth has released an important report on the benefits of first-milking colostrum. Colostrum is the first milk for humans and other mammals. First milking colostrum from bovines can be used to support human health.
Colostrum contains bioactive immune factors that work intuitively to support the immune system. In the case of autoimmune disorders, where the immune system is too active and attacks the body, it can quiet it down. In cases of infectious disease, the immune system can be revved up. The various immune factors in first-milking colostrum work synergistically to aid the body’s health.
Autoimmune diseases, where the overactive immune system attacks the body’s own tissues, include allergies, asthma, multiple sclerosis, rheumetoid arthritis, and lupus. Underactive immune systems give increased risk to the body for infectious conditions, bacterially related heart disease, and cancer. One of the problems with drugs prescribed for overactive immune systems is that they can reduce the immune system to the point where the body operates at the other end of the scale, with a lessened immune system, which sets the stage for elevated cancer risk.
The whole complement of immune factors found in first-milking colostrum is a natural way to normalize the immune system. Whether it needs to be revved up or slowed down, first-milking colostrum gives the body what it needs to to normalize the immune system.
First-milking colostrum is obtained from dairy cows within the first six to eight hours. True first-milking colostrum is produced just before the actual birth of the calf. It is at its peak potency of immune factors, growth factors, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents at the time of birth. It can only be collected for a short period of time as it is diluted by the subsequent production of milk. In less than 12 hours, the concentration of the active components is half of what it was at the time of birth.
