WHAT IS COLOSTRUM

Colostrum, also known as the first milk is a highly concentrated form of milk. Colostrum is produced by the mother within the first 72 hours after giving birth. Colostrum is a highly nutritive substance that provides the baby with protection against diseases and infections. Colostrum is essential in helping the baby pass its early stools, aiding in the excretion of excess bilirubin, thereby preventing jaundice. Colostrum is thick, sticky and generally yellow to orange in colour. It is low fat but high in protein, carbohydrates and antibiotics designed to enhance and maintain the babies’ immune system.

The Colostrum levels within the first two weeks gradually changes to mature milk. During this time, the mothers’ colostrum levels decrease as the volume of milk increases. The disease-fighting properties of the human milk do not disappear with the colostrum, and as long as the baby is breastfed it will be receiving immunological protection against viruses and bacteria. Bovine or cow colostrum is used in conjunction with, or in place of human colostrum because its constituents are almost identical to human colostrum.

Bovine colostrum is collected within the first 72 hours after the cow has birthed its calf, as this is when the nutritional components are at their peak. Bovine colostrum provides a high source of nutrients, antibiotics and anti-inflammatory compounds that are used by humans during infancy and after they’ve been weaned. Known for its immune strengthening properties, called transfer factors, colostrum has been used for years for the treatment of many immune related chronic diseases.

HISTORY OF COLOSTRUM

Sherwood Lawrence was the first to discover the transfer factors in colostrum in 1949 while he was treating tuberculosis patients. Since then, science has discovered that taking colostrum greatly increases the immune systems response, speeding up the healing process.
