Colostrum is the nutrient-rich, pre-milk fluid produced by all mammals during the first few days after giving birth. It has an extremely high concentration of immunoglobulins (uniquely structured proteins that naturally contribute to healthy immune function). Colostrum keeps certain bacteria from adhering to mucus membranes.
Also contained in colostrum is something called "transfer factor," a tiny molecule that contains information about the mother's immune system. This immune information is passed on to the recipient. Because animals are exposed to many of the same "bugs" as humans, this bovine colostrum is able to boost the human immune system via the information in the transfer factor.
Colostrum has been shown to support overall immunity, the body’s natural process of wound healing, and assist in the maintenance of healthy bacterial response, in adults as well as children.
Beeyoutiful's Colostrum Transfer Factor is collected the first day after calving from U.S. pasture-fed cows that are pesticide, antibiotic, and hormone-free. Our Colostrum is guaranteed to yield 30% Immunoglobulins per capsule.
