What is Colostrum?
Colostrum is the thick yellow fluid which is produced as a precursor to mother’s milk. It is found in humans, goats, and other mammals where it is produced by the mother for two days following birth. Colostrum can be described as a brilliantly designed transfer system which effectively “jump starts” a newborn’s undeveloped immune system.
CapraColostrum is unique because it’s from goats—meaning it’s from a source that is closer to human milk than the mass produced bovine (cow) colostrum. Colostrum supplies the body with immune and growth factors and is easily tolerated by most.
What biological role does colostrum play?
Colostrum has dozens of health related components, the primary being immune and growth related. Colostrum is made up of various macro and micro constituents such as cytokines, immunoglobulins, lactoferrin, growth factors and hormones, etc. These components have various biological roles that are vital to proper health and immune function. For example:
Cytokines are part of our systemic immune system. These hormones keep communication between immune cells active. “No communication = No immunity”
- Growth Factors (IGF-I, IGF-II, EGF)
As the name implies, growth factors assist with maintenance and growth of certain body tissues
Lactoferrin assists with iron absorption and has shown anti-microbial characteristics. It is a part of our defense system.
- Growth Hormone
Works individually as well as together with growth factors to possibly aid in growth and function of gastro-intestinal tissues
- Immunoglobulins (IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG, IgM)
Immunoglobulins are also known as antibodies. These small proteins, are used by the immune system to seek out and destroy foreign antigens (invaders).
