Colostrum – Immune Booster

We started on colostrum from Angela Harris (www.angelaharris.com)  – she sells it as Immune Plus in her store – this was when hubby started his whole anticancer treatment using only alternative options.

From the various people I have talked to, they said colostrum is excellent for boosting immunity (that’s how baby calves are protected).

Research brought us to the following extracts – you can find vast info on the internet.

Angela’s colostrum is from New Zealand.  I am waiting to hear from worldimagenaturals.com – they say their colostrum is better because New Zealand is a sub-tropical and US cows are fed on a special diet (my question to them is – what is the diet of the cows?)

Below are extracts from links on colostrum and benefits.

Colostrum (also known as beestings or first milk or “immune milk”) is a form of milk produced by the mammary glands of mammals in late pregnancy. Most species will generate colostrum within one day of giving birth.

colostrum (kŏ-los-trŭm) n. the first secretion from the breast, occurring shortly after, or sometimes before, birth, prior to the secretion of true milk. It is a relatively clear fluid containing serum, white blood cells, and protective antibodies.

Colostrum actually works as a natural and 100% safe vaccine. It contains large quantities of an antibody called secretory immunoglobulin A (IgA) which is a new substance to the newborn. Before your baby was born, he received the benefit of another antibody, called IgG, through your placenta. IgG worked through the baby’s circulatory system, but IgA protects the baby in the places most likely to come under attack from germs, namely the mucous membranes in the throat, lungs, and intestines.

Colostrum also contains high concentrations of leukocytes, protective white cells which can destroy disease-causing bacteria and viruses.

Colostrum Functions Like Human Growth Hormone to Reverse the Aging Process

Tuesday, July 14, 2009 by: Barbara L. Minton, citizen jour

(NaturalNews) Colostrum has been called the promise of life. It is the first food, in which all the immune and growth factors that insure health and vitality are transferred from the mother to the newborn. Research has shown that colostrum is the one supplement that can bring help to everyone that uses it, largely because of its ability to perform many of the functions of human growth hormone (HGH) in the body. Many scientists believe colostrum may be the most important preventative that can be consumed by a mammal. The value of colostrum has been documented in clinical observations and is supported by a large database. A team of scientists in London has now found that colostrum can prevent the death of human neurons and effectively treat Alzheimer’s patients. While this was going on, another research team was documenting that colostrum knocks out intestinal inflammation.

“In research, colostrum has demonstrated the ability to kill viral and bacteria invaders, stimulate tissue repair, stimulate fat utilization for fuel, and optimize cellular reproduction to slow aging.

“There have been no reports of anyone, anywhere, at any age getting cancer after using HGH for a year or more. Although there are theoretical reasons why HGH might promote cell division, HGH also stimulates the immune system to a level where cancer is does not occur.”

NOTOCHEMO’S CONCLUSION: Hubby did forget to take his Immune Plus for a while (wish he could remember how long) and his most recent blood test shows a drop in white blood cells – I’ve decided to take Colostrum too – I do want to research which Colostrum (Angela sells it the NZ one for $5.38 an ounce)

If someone knows about colostrum, please let me know.

Worldimagenaturals. com has not called back to let me know what their US cows are fed on.
