Colostrum Supports the Immune System
Thursday, June 10th 2004
As the immune system is depleted we become more susceptible to debilitating diseases and the aging process is accelerated. It becomes a vicious cycle. Colostrum can help reverse this negative process by strengthening the immune system and replacing actual immune factors needed by the immune system to keep us disease free.
Studies show colostrum contains powerful immune and growth factors that work together to restore potent immune function, help regulate an underactive or overactive immune system and act as a potent, broad-spectrum natural antibiotic and antiviral agent.
Human clinical study: Immune factors in bovine colostrum, when taken orally, are effective against disease-causing organisms in the intestinal tract. Ingestion of bovine colostrum's immunoglobulins may be a new method of providing passive immuno-protection against a host of gut-associated disease causing antigens (viral and bacterial).
