What is colostrum?
Colostrum is a 100% natural product. It is the very first milk provided to all newborn mammals from their mothers. Colostrum has, by nature, a high content of proteins and a natural content of immunoglobulin G (IgG). Besides, colostrum contains carbohydrates, lipids, numerous vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.
What does colostrum do?
Colostrum is by nature developed to nourish and strengthen the newborn’s untested immune system and digestion system and protect him against infections. Colostrum is therefore vital for the survival of newborn in the first vulnerable time after birth. Colostrum adds important bioactive factors, protects the gut and contributes to activate the newborn’s immune system.
The cow produce particularly large amounts of colostrum for the calf, far more than the calf needs. Calves are born without immunologic compounds in the blood and a critically immature immune system, but they receive a complete immune system from the cow via the colostrum. The colostrum also contributes to mature the gut and gets the digestive system started. Bovine colostrum contains more than 250 different compounds, all participating in strengthening the calf and protect it against diseases. Bovine colostrum is quite similar to human colostrum in the composition, but includes higher amounts of immunoglobulins. The calf needs 4-5 litres of colostrum, which is far enough to activate it’s immune defense and secure the protection necessary against infections. The cow produces up to 15 litres, and the surplus may be collected for other purposes.
