Colostrum is one of the top 10 most powerful natural health supplements ever discovered. It is the most powerful natural immune system enhancer in the world. I never go without a supply of colostrum, because I know no matter how sick I get, I’m only a few hours to a day or two away from complete recovery, with massively reduced symptoms and suffering.
Let me put it this way. If I were stranded on a desert island and told I could take only 3 health supplements with me, colostrum would be one of them, without my having to think about it. It is that powerful. It is truly a miracle of nature.
Colostrum is God’s Milk, manna from heaven. So just what is colostrum, and why do you need to add it to your arsenal of anti-aging health supplements?
Every female mammal produces colostrum after giving birth. For the first few days, what comes from the mother’s breast to feed her offspring is not “milk”, it is colostrum, which is 10 – 100 times more powerful than milk, depending upon which ingredient you are talking about, and provides the baby with everything it needs to survive and grow during the first few days of life.
Colostrum is packed with all the immune and growth factors, hormones, vitamins, minerals, etc. that the newborn baby needs to survive before its own immune system is fully developed. In other words, colostrum is largely responsible for keeping the new born offspring alive during the first few days of its life.
Now, just think. If colostrum is so powerful that it is essential for a newborn offspring to survive, imagine what it can do for you and your tired, aging body.
So you know it is filled with everything nature needs to nourish and strengthen the body and allow the newborn offspring to fight off disease and grow strong and healthy. It is nature’s perfect food, on a similar level of “superfood” status as spirulina, but a food like spirulina has more micro-nutrients while colostrum has more growth and immune factors such as hormones. The they are a perfect compliment to each other.
Colostrum is the thick, yellowish, “first milk” fluid produced and emitted from the breast of the female mammal after giving birth (parturition). Colostrum is loaded with energy, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals – very highly concentrated in nutrition, but low in fat and very easy to digest. Most importantly, it contains maternal antibodies that help protect the newborn from disease pathogens during the early stages of its life.
More importantly, it has been shown that feeding colostrum to newborn babies has a beneficial effect on the immune system that lasts for their whole life. That means if you do not receive colostrum during your first few days of life, your immune system will be permanently compromised.
Think about that next time you feed your newborn baby the garbage artificial baby formulas manufactured by those who would profit from your health and the health of your family.
One of the most important ingredients in colostrum is immunoglobulin, which is a special kind of protein involved in supercharging the immune system to fight off germs, viruses, worms, parasites, etc. There are other types of compounds within colostrum such as growth factors and nucleosides, proline-rich polypeptides (prp), lactoferrin, glycoproteins, lactalbumins, cyto
kines, growth factors, vitamins, and minerals, etc. that are not found in regular milk.
Colostrum is probably best absorbed through the intestinal tract, where are body is very vulnerable to the growth, colonization and absorption into the bloodstream of bacteria and viruses, although dissolving colostrum in the mouth to coat the mouth and throat is also a very effective means of ingesting it. That’s because a lot of bacteria and viruses that make us sick enter through our mouths. The colostrum is then absorbed into our blood through blood vessels in the mouth, where it can nourish the cells of your body.
Also, it is beneficial for colostrum to mix with your saliva. Remember, nature intended you to drink colostrum, not take it in pill form. By coating the colostrum with your saliva, you help it to resist the destructive forces of your stomach acids, so more of the colostrum gets absorbed into your system.
