Colostrum is one of nature’s great producers of healthy nutrients and yet few people take advantage of it after the first few months of life.
Colostrum is the thin fluid produced by breastfeeding mothers(natural infant formula). It is produced in great quantities early on in breastfeeding, but the law of diminishing returns goes into effect the longer breastfeeding continues, which is a shame, in a way, because it is so beneficial for the human body.
Consider this: colostrum introduces the newborn infant to over ninety-five different compounds which balance the immune system, and also brings eight growth factors which promote normal cell growth and increased mental sharpness.
Now consider this: our gut is responsible for absorbing nutrients, and colostrum provides gut stability and nutrient absorption. In other words, colostrum is great for gut health.
And colostrum produced by cows and goats (goat milk vs cow milk) have identical structure and benefits as colostrum produced by humans, which is good news for all of us who seek better health. Today, as a supplement in either powder form or in capsules, colostrum can be found in any quality health store.
Among the health benefits of colostrum, suggested by researchers, are these areas:
- Acid reflux
- Improved athletic performance
- Brain function
- Chronic fatigue
- Digestive disorders
- Nose bleeds
Obviously, we at Mt. Capra are pretty high on colostrum, and we think our Capra Colostrum is a product worth considering. From our colostrum label:
Colostrum is the first milk produced. This special milk is low in fat, and high in carbohydrates, protein, and antibodies. It is nature’s transfer of immune factors that occurs the first two days of postpartum. CapraColostrum™ is made from our pure goat milk colostrum and comes in powder form or vegetarian V-Caps™ capsules.
When you weigh all the evidence, it is hard to deny the benefits of taking a colostrum supplement.
Side effects of taking colostrum? They are rare. Since taking this product involves a cleansing of toxins stored in cells, one might experience abdominal discomfort for a short period of time, but this is simply the body switching gears and doing what our immune system naturally does. Simply cut back on the dosage of colostrum for a few days and then resume at half the original amount. Soon your body will welcome the return to nature and settle down in a healthy routine.
