Bovine Colostrum

What is Bovine Colostrum?
When an animal, such as a cow or even a human, gives birth, the animal’s mammary glands produce a more highly concentrated, low-volume form of milk that can be accommodated by the newborn’s digestive system. This special form of milk is known as colostrum, and bovine colostrums are a comparable substance to the colostrums of humans that are known to carry a variety of health benefits. Bovine colostrums are known to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties as well as a variety of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids.

What are the health benefits of Bovine Colostrum?

Bovine colostrums are used for building immune function, for they contain all five of the immunoglobulins—the proteins found in the bodily fluids of mammals and are responsible for identifying foreign invaders. Formal studies have shown that intake of bovine colostrums has a positive effect on the immune systems of humans.

Benefits of bovine colostrums include building physical strength, slowing the aging process, and fighting the pathogens of specific conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, and the flu.

What are the guidelines for taking Bovine Colostrum?
Bovine colostrums are available as dietary supplements in the form of capsules and powder. They are available online, in health food stores, and in the offices of alternative medical practitioners.

Are there any precautions for taking Bovine Colostrum?
Because bovine colostrums are a food, they are a low-risk supplement. It is recommended, however, to consult with a licensed medical practitioner when considering the use of this supplement.
