For Gastrointestinal Immunity
Colostroplex (Bovine Colostrum) by Health Concerns is a convenient source of colostrum which is a nutrient-rich fluid derived from cows shortly after they give birth. According to its proponents bovine colostrum might work to maintain overall well-being in several ways. First Colostroplex (Bovine Colostrum) may help address certain symptoms associated with gastrointestinal discomfort. For example colostrum might play a role in alleviating mild diarrhea as well as inflammation in the colon. In addition Colostroplex (Bovine Colostrum) might work to maintain optimal immune function. Specifically colostrum is high in immunoglobins which are antibodies that could potentially aid your immune system in identifying and neutralizing foreign bacteria and viruses. Finally bovine colostrum might provide a mild stamina boost. For this reason some people have used it to help maintain optimal athletic performance.
Colostrum has been used for thousands of years in Asia and has been studied since the late 1700s in Europe. First milk colostrum is a pure and natural product resulting from collecting and drying the milk obtained within the first six hours after the birth of a calf. Our colostrum is collected from selected herds in six states in the United States to assure the highest potency product and to guarantee the newborn calf is not deprived. Colostrum is rich in protein, specifically immune proteins classed as immunoglobulins, which provide the newborn or those using colostrum, with these basic components of the immune system. In the case of the newborn, their immune system is not yet fully functioning and colostrum source antibodies aid the immune system to ward off and defend against infections and antigens (bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc.). Additionally, there are many vitamins in high concentrations along with rich sources of minerals in easy to assimilate forms. Recent research has proven the existence of TGF-1 (insulin like growth factor), which is of interest to the athletic and body-building field. Colostrum also contains a small molecular weight moiety called transfer factor (immune inducer), which is a messenger to the immune system preparing it for defense against specific antigens. This can be a very promising way to offer health benefits through an oral supplement, as it is small enough to be absorbed through the digestive system.
