COLOSTRUM CENTRE INFORMATION TO NEW ZEALAND BOVINE COLOSTRUM SUPPLIERS

Colostrum Powder contains a combination of bioactive components to support a healthy immune system. The most valuable components in bovine colostrum include:

Immunoglobulins (Ig's). These are proteins that form an important part of the immune system. They function as antibodies and are generated by the body in response to foreign substances (antigens) such as infectious microbes. Ig's are present in the whey component of milk, human serum and other body fluids. Colostrum is a rich source of lg's and contains IgD, IgE, IgM and most predominant ones IgA and IgG. New Zealand colostrum generally has an IgG rating of between 15-20%

Lactoferrin is an iron-binding whey protein found in the milk of most mammals, it contains 703 amino acids. It is naturally occurring in body fluids i.e. tears, saliva, breast milk and the highest concentration is found in colostrum. It is also a major constituent of leukocytes, a type of white blood cell. Lactoferrin is able to bind to pathogens invading the body.

Lactoferrin is considered a multifunctional or multi-tasking protein. It appears to play several biological roles. Owing to its iron-binding properties, it appears to be the source of iron and have antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immunomodulatory activities.

Lysozyme is an enzyme, commonly referred to as the bodys own antibiotic, It is abundantly present in secretions such as, tear ducts, milk and colostrum. It has the ability to destroy cell walls of certain bacteria. It is able to catalyse the inactivation of a wide range of micro-organisms.

Lactoperoxidase is an enzyme present in colostrum. It possesses its own antimicrobial properties against gram-positive organisms and exhibits pH dependent bactericidal action against gram-negative organisms.

Growth Factors are substances made by the body that function to regulate cell division and cell survival.
The growth factors found in bovine colostrum include:
IGF 1 and 2 (insulin like growth factor)
These growth factors are the most prevalent in colostrum and the body and is key in the reproduction of our bodies cellular tissue, this assist athletes in recovery times after events as well as after injury

TGF 1 and 2 (transforming growth factor)
These growth factors play a large role in tissue repair. In particular, the digestive tract and cartilage. It also has an inhibitory role on adipocytes which are the fat storage cells which may assist in the controlling of obesity. Being an IGF-rich supplement it promotes a healthy gut through turnover of the intestinal lining, increased uptake of dietary components and increased immunological performance. Gut micro flora play a vital role in digestion, nutrient absorption and immune function. If there is an imbalance in the intestinal micro flora this may upset the digestive process and impact on the immune system, the use of Colostrum can keep your gut at optimal function.
