Colostrum is a milk-like substance produced by female mammals during late pregnancy and in the first few days after giving birth. It is the first food that the newborn will receive, and it is a way of transferring important immune and growth factors from mother to newborn. Colostrum contains antibodies that stimulate a newborn infant’s immunity against disease. It contains an abundance of nutrients including essential vitamins, minerals, enzymes, growth and immune factors, biologically active proteins and essential fatty acids. Colostrum is lower in fat and higher in protein than ordinary milk.
Research has shown that the molecular structure of bovine colostrum is identical to human colostrum. The immune and growth factors found in bovine colostrum are beneficial to humans of all ages. In other words, it contains all of the immune and growth factors found in all other sources and thus it can significantly benefit all other mammals, including humans of course.
Because calves are born without any immunity to airborne, disease-causing organisms, their mothers Colostrum must contain a very large amount of immune and health factors. As a result bovine Colostrum has 10 – 20 times the natural factors of human Colostrum, making it the richest source of Colostrum available. MIP Colostrum is the ultimate in preserving, increasing and enhancing the bio availability of the natural growth and immune factors.
