Repair Gastrointestinal Damage With Colostrum

Repair Gastrointestinal Damage With Colostrum

Monday, October 13th 2003

Many New Zealanders attest to the ability of colostrum to help repair, heal and rebuild the gastrointestinal tract. Problems such as colitis, diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohns disease and leaky gut syndrome have all improved through the benefits of colostrum. Gut problems need Radiance Colostrum Capsules. Athletes use the powder and find it helps improve stamina, strength and recovery time.

Improved Radiance "2nd Generation" Colostrum is made in New Zealand to exacting specifications. It is processed with a beta-lipid coating which helps create an enhanced delivery system that increases dispersion and assimilation.

Clinically proven to Help Repair Gastrointestinal damage from Over-the-Counter and prescription drugs.

Research has shown that up to 90% of all disease begins in the gastrointestinal tract.

Non -steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID's) such as aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen as well as pain medications (such as Vioxx and Celebrex, antibiotics, carbonated drinks, food additives and alcohol can cause gastrointestinal bleeding and increased permeability (Leaky Gut Syndrome).

The destruction of the gastrointestinal tract's protective barrier allows pathogens (bacteria, viruses, fungi and yeasts including Candida albicans) to enter the body, setting the stage for future infection and disease.

Studies have shown that taking NSAID's increases gut permeability three fold. Research conducted at the Imperial College School of Medicine in London showed that bovine colostrum helps to not only stop gastrointestinal damage and bleeding in the stomach and GI tract but helps repair previous damage, even while taking NSAID's.

The researchers attributed this anti-inflammatory response to the numerous growth factors that occur naturally in colostrum.

Colostrum is the substance produced by all mammals during the first 72 hours after birth. This fluid contains powerful immune and growth factors to insure survival and healthy growth of the newborn. Our body's growth and immune factors decline after puberty or with illness. Colostrum has been shown to help replace these vital components of life.

Radiance Colostrum is available in Capsules and Chewables.
