Scientific research has shown that significantly important immune and growth factors for humans comes from bovine colostrum. It is biologically transferable to all mammals, including humans, and is much higher in immune factors than human mother’s colostrum. The component in colostrum that is most beneficial in regulating the immune response in patients with autoimmune disease is PRP. PRP is a small protein chain present in colostrum that has the same ability to regulate the immune system as the hormones of the thymus gland. Taking the colostrum in a liquid form or a PRP fraction as a supplement is most important for modulating overactive and underperforming-immune responses in all humans and other mammals.
Laboratory analyses of both immune and growth factors from bovine colostrum indicate that they are identical to those found in human colostrum except, that the levels of these factors are significantly higher in the bovine version. Bovine colostrum is actually 40 times richer in immune factors than human colostrum. For example, human colostrum contains 2% of IgG (immunoglobulin G) while cow colostrum contains 86% of IgG, the most important of the immunoglobulins found in the body.
Researchers also discovered that cows’ colostrum contains special glycoproteins that are extremely effective at protecting the immune and growth factors in colostrum from destruction by adult human digestive enzymes.
Whether or not we have had the benefits of our mother’s milk, or are experiencing the effects of an auto-immune system disorder in our family, exposure to medical and environmental toxins warrants enhancing our immune system function. Bovine colostrum spray may prove to be a vital, proactive way for families to improve their family wellness during pregnancy, just after birth, and throughout childhood.
