There are super foods and then there are SUPERFOODS. Colostrum, the first mother’s milk from a mammal after she gives birth is the mother of all super foods. Cow colostrum is the most common type of colostrum used for its miraculous health benefits. It is nearly identical in structure to human colostrum. There are a lot of great brands of colostrum on the market. I use Colostrum LD by Sovereign Labs. It is enhanced to make it more bioavailable. Body Boost is also a good brand of colostrum. It is not enhanced, making it more gentle.
Here are a few of colostrum’s amazing benefits:
- Improved gut stability
- Better nutrient absorption
- Immune system balance
- Increases energy
- Reduces inflammation
- Increases bone density
- Increases lean muscle mass (Body Builders use Colostrum for this reason)
- Promotes a healthy body weight
- Contains vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids
- Slows the aging process
Bovine (cow) colostrum is a universal donor making it transferable to all mammals, especially humans. It is much higher in immune factors than human colostrum.
Colostrum contains growth factors (IGF 1) and immune factors. These growth and immune factors are so powerful the pharmaceutical drug makers are attempting to isolate and market them individually. Drug manufacturers are already including colostrum in some Alzheimer medications. Fortunately, all you need to do to reap these benefits is to take colostrum. It contains the perfect complement of growth factors, interferon (inhibits viruses), antibodies (like gamma globulin) and protease inhibitors (inhibits viruses), conveniently packaged by nature.
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I think colostrum is amazing! I plan on taking it for the rest of my life. My entire family takes colostrum, even my chihuahua, Bosco.
