Colostrum comes from the breasts of mammals a few days after giving birth. It is a milky substance containing many nutrients‚ preceding actual breast milk. Colostrum is said to contain certain proteins‚ vitamins‚ minerals‚ antibodies‚ and carbohydrates. The colostrum present in a colostrum supplement like Progressive Labs' generally comes from cows.
It's the antibody content of colostrum that concerns most people. Research and estimates state that the antibody level of colostrum can be 100 times greater than that of cow's milk. Antibodies (also know as immunoglobin) are Y-shaped proteins that our immune system need in order to recognize and eliminate invading bacteria and viruses. These essential proteins recognize when bacteria or viruses enter the body by invading cell's antigen. The antibody then is able to discern and point out the invading substance so that our body's immune system knows to attack it. Some people also believe that a colostrum supplement may aid in nervous system health as well as supporting a general sense of well being.
Aside from it's possible immune system support‚ colostrum supplements have been used to athletes during training and workouts. The belief is that the contents of colostrum help promote lead muscle‚ eliminate fat‚ improve stamina‚ and enhance general athletic performance.
Bovine colostrum has also been implicated in treating infectious diarrhea in individuals with poor function immune systems as well as children. Certain individuals also hold that bovine colostrum can be used to possibly treat colon inflammation.
