Check also Colostrum with Immune Factors.
Several factors or components exist in Colostrum that work synergistically to supercharge the functioning of our immune and digestive systems. This natural boost aids the body's own defense mechanism to fight against infections and degenerative diseases, including heart disease and cancer.
Colostrum's major components can be divided on their functional basis:
Immune Factors: Supports and strengthens the immune system to protect against illness.
Proline Rich Polypeptides: Promotes an underactive immune system and regulates an overactive immune system (including allergies and autoimmune diseases).
Immunoglobulin Proteins or Antibodies: There are five major types of protein molecules that are produced in response to antigens (foreign invaders).
Each type (IgG, IgM, IgD, IgE and IgA) has a specific function, which fight bacteria, viruses, allergens and yeast.
Antibodies in Colostrum may help control deadly bacteria such as E. Coli, Salmonella, Shigella, V. Cholera, Stretococcus pneumonia, etc.
Also helps to prevent and treat acute intestinal diseases.
