Description

COLOSTRUM is pre-milk, which is lemon yellow colored secretion produced by female mammals immediately after the birth of baby for the first 2-4 days. This fluid is important. It is not only a source of Nutrients such as Proteins, Carbohydrates, Fat, Vitamins and Minerals, but it also contains several biologically-active molecules which are essential to the body’s immune and growth functions.

Ayurvedic physicians and spiritual leaders have used Colostrum for its physical and spiritual health benefits for over 2,000 years.

Discovery of Colostrum :

1940's - In the 1940's colostrum became popular for use by people suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and other age related problems.

1950's - In the 1950's colostrum was a source of natural antibodies which helped lead to the creation of the polio vaccine.

1970's and 1980's - In colostrum grew in popular use against yeast infections, viruses and the flu, and autoimmune problems.

1990's - In the 1990's another benefit of colostrum was discovered. It was found to help fight stomach bacteria and help soothe stomach ulcers.

 

2000's - In the 2000's colostrum has been studied for its natural growth factors that may help bodybuilders turn fat and flab into firm muscle, and to assist in anti-aging efforts.

Benefits of Immune Factors : An important consideration is the stability of antibodies in the digestive tract. In a study conducted to ascertain the stability of bovine immunoglobulins to proteolytic digestion it was revealed that antibodies which possess specific activity can pass through the gastrointestinal tract of infants without being completely destroyed.

This indicates that the specific action of antibodies in the gastrointestinal tract is not adversely affected and that biological activity is retained.
In addition to immunoglobulins there are other immune factors present in milk and colostrum: including lactoferrin, transferrin, secretory component, lyzozyme, oligosaccharides, glycolipids, and various hormones.

Briefly the various biological functions of these immune factors are as follows: 

Lactoferrin - Iron-binding protein, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory. Lactoferrin has been shown to function as an anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and as an antioxidant or scavenger of free radicals.

Lactoferrin was first isolated in milk, thus its name. However, it is also found in other secretions such as tears and saliva. Its main biological function is that it has a very high affinity for iron. It is because this action that lactoferrin is an excellent inhibitor of a wide range of microorganisms that require iron for growth and proliferation. Recent scientific evidence has linked lactoferrin with significant beneficial effects in the treatment of cancers, specifically in the reduction of tumours. Though the actual mechanism of action is yet to be elucidated lactoferrin has been shown to suppress colon cancer tumors and also to inhibit lung cancer metastasis. Further, it has also been shown to successfully inhibit the hepatitis C virus in patients suffering chronic infection. 

Transferrin - Iron-binding protein, antioxidant, Anti-microbial. It is similar to lactoferrin in it’s ability to bind iron and to act as a antioxidant. Though its’ effectiveness and bio-potency is much less as compared to lactoferrin.

Proline rich Polypeptides (PRP's) act as hormones that regulate the thymus gland and help modulate the immune system (much in the same way as the nutrients mentioned above). Specifically, PRP's promote better functioning of T-lymphocytes, they help produce cytokines, they stimulate the activity of natural killer cells (NK cells) and they stimulate and modulate many other immunological functions. What makes cow colostrum one of the best antiaging foods is that PRP's increase the permeability of blood vessels in the skin, resulting in the improved uptake of nutrients into the skin which results in a healthier and more youthful complexion!

Secretory Component - Prostaglandin inhibitor, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial

Interleukins - Stimulators of the immune response - by promoting proliferation and maturation of activated T cells

Interferons - Antiviral, stimulators of immune response by modulating the activity of natural killer cells.

Lyzozyme - Anti-microbial - acts in conjunction with secretory IgA to neutralize harmful bacteria.

Oligosccharides - Anti-microbial, inhibit the ability of harmful bacteria adhering to mucosal surface.

Glycolipids - Various anti-microbial and modulator functions.

Lactoperoxidase - Anti-microbial.

Secretory component - is associated with the immunoglobulins “IgA” and “IgM”. It has also been suggested that it may possibly exist in an unbound or free form. 

Cytokines - stimulating an under-active immune system

Immunoglobulin - which helps repair muscles

 

Lactoferrin - an iron-binding protein that helps release iron into the red blood cells and also deprives bacteria of the iron it needs to reproduce

 

Growth Factors : Growth Factors help build and restore bone, muscle, nerve tissue, connective tissue, skin and cartilage. These factors have also been shown to help increase lean muscle, help the body burn fat for fuel, and assist in wound repair. Growth factors have also been shown to help slow the signs of aging!

Colostrum is a very complex mixture containing many substances that have yet to be fully appreciated. Among these substances are a group of low molecular weight peptides collectively referred to as "growth factors".

Growth factors are hormone-like peptides that either act alone or in conjunction with other substances to affect the growth (proliferation) and maturation of various cell types. For example some growth factors help epidermal cells (skin and digestive tract) grow faster while other growth factors stimulate muscle and bone cell proliferation and development. Of significant interest is the fact that bovine growth factors found in colostrum are almost identical to that of human in both structure and function In addition to growth factors there are also cytokines present in colostrum. Two of these, interferon and interleukin were also included due to their growth promoting actions.

1.     Epithelial Growth FACTOR (EGF)

2.     Insulin-like Growth Factor I & II (IGF-I & II)

3.     Transforming Growth Factor - b (TGF - b)

4.     Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)

5.     Fibroblast growth factor

6.     Nerve Growth factor

7.     Aniogenic  Growth Factor

8.     Growth hormone (GH)

9.     Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone (GnRH)

10.  Prolactin

11.  Insulin

12.  Sulfer

 

Benefits of Growth Factors : Growth factors and cytokines present in colostrum and their respective actions are as follows:

Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) Stimulates tissue repair & wound healing and maturation of the digestive tract

Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) Stimulates muscle and bone cell proliferation and development
Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) Stimulates the proliferation and development of a wide range of cell types

Interleukins Stimulators of the immune response : by promoting proliferation and maturation of activated T-cells Interferon Antiviral, stimulators of immune response by modulating the activity of natural killer cells.

Transforming Growth Factor (TGF) : are also found in relatively high amounts in colostrum. This growth factors stimulate tissue repair & wound healing. Physical exercise and training cause muscle and tissue damage. The degree of damage and time required for repair depends on various factors, including: physical state, level of stress, dietary and medicinal considerations. Bovine colostrum has been shown to help in this recovery process.

Insulin Like Growth Factor- 1( IGF – 1) : "IGF-1 is one of the most potent natural activators of the AKT signaling pathway, a stimulator of cell growth and proliferation, and a potent inhibitor of programmed cell death" (this helps combat the metabolic effects of aging). IGF-1 is one of the many growth factors found in bovine colostrum that helps create a state of anabolism in the body which can lead to increased lean muscle mass, bone density and tissue regeneration. It has been shown that IGF-1, through its action via growth hormone, can retard the aging process including: decreasing cardiovascular associated mortality, reduce osteoporosis and have a very positive effect on brain function.

Insulin Growth Factor - 2 (IG - 2) Stimulates muscle and bone cell proliferation and development. Involved in the Anti-aging process.

Proline Rich Peptides (PRP's) act as hormones that regulate the thymus gland and help modulate the immune system (much in the same way as the nutrients mentioned above). Specifically, PRP's promote better functioning of T-lymphocytes, they help produce cytokines, they stimulate the activity of natural killer cells (NK cells) and they stimulate and modulate many other immunological functions. What makes cow colostrum one of the best antiaging foods is that PRP's increase the permeability of blood vessels in the skin, resulting in the improved uptake of nutrients into the skin which results in a healthier and more youthful complexion!

Thymosin Alfa and Beta : are hormones that are naturally produced by the thymus gland (and endocrine gland located in the chest). When a healthy baby is born, this gland is about the same size as their heart. By mid adulthood people past 40 rarely have a thymus glad much larger than a pea and by the time they are seniors, there is usually nothing functional left except some fibrotic tissue strands. A functional thymus gland plays a central role in immune health and studies have shown that raw colostrum can actually begin to re-grow this shriveled gland in adults!

Lactoperoxidase : is an enzyme that acts as an anti-microbial agent. It is found naturally in milk and colostrum to prevent the proliferation of bad bacteria. These beneficial properties are then transferred over to those who consume it. Colostrum benefits your oral health if you let is dissolve in your mouth around your gums. This can prevent or even treat gingivitis and may be able to help re-grow a receding gum-line. Lactoperoxidase has also been shown to stimulate macrophages (white blood cells) to gobble up cancer cells present in the body.

Other Beneficial Components : Colostrum is rich in proteins, vitamin A, nutrients and sodium chloride as well as fats, carbohydrates, and potassium. These nutrients and vitamins are available in colostrum supplements. Bovine colostrum is rich in these nutrients more than human colostrum and that why people prefer bovine colostrum. It contains vitamin B6, B12, A, C, and E along with chromium, potassium, Calcium, zinc, iron, and phosphorus.

If that isn’t good enough to make you consider using bovine colostrum, it has other amino acids, including glutamic acid, glycine, aspartic acid, cysteine, alanine, tyrosine, serine, and arginine. Most of these components improve growth and development factors.

Colostrum plays an essential role in giving the body all the supplements it needs to maintain good health and growth. With all the mineral, it is the most preferred ingredient in many beauty products. It is a super powerful product with lots of beneficial proteins and vitamins.
