After giving birth, a mother’s body produces a special immune and growth promoting substance that is secreted into her milk.
This fluid is produced for only the first 24 hours after giving birth, and is called colostrum.
This special pre-milk" is integral in providing a wide range of immunological and growth promoting factors to the offspring.
Research provides evidence for transfer of cytokines, immunoglobulin, growth factors, and maternal immune cells to the newborn via the feeding of colostrum.
Bovine colostrum is especially rich in immune factors, amino acids, nucleotides and growth factors.
Some elements are present in higher quantities in bovine colostrum than in human colostrum.
Research has shown that supplementation with bovine colostrum is able to positively modulate immune function.
