Ultra strength Bovine Colostrum
Pure, potent and precisely processed for optimal effectiveness.
GastriCol provides all the benefits of high grade New Zealand Colostrum including important natural antibodies helping support gut immunity.
There are two types of colostrum:
- Human colostrum — This is the colostrum that is produced by mothers when their baby is still very young. It is sometimes available for purchase, but it is not the type most commonly used for colostrum supplements.
- Bovine colostrum — This is the stuff that comes from cows, and it is the type of colostrum that is used for most colostrum supplements. It contains many of the same nutrients found in human colostrum, but it has a higher fat and protein content.
Improving Gut Health
Your gut (also known as your intestinal tract) is responsible for the breakdown and absorption of food, as well as the elimination of waste products. It also detoxifies your body, and about 80% of your immune activity happens in your gut. Basically, your intestines are two of the most important organs in your entire body.
There is an immunoglobulin protein called sIgA (secretory IgA) that plays a central role in your overall health. Low sIgA levels has been linked to:
- Chronic intestinal problems
- Ulcerative colitis
- Crohn’s disease
People suffering from these diseases tend to have low levels of this important protein.
However, taking colostrum is one of the best ways to increase sIgA levels in your body. Colostrum will help to balance your immune system, reduce the inflammatory cytokines in your intestines, and even repair the damage that has already been done to your gut by the disorders listed above.
Colostrum can help to reduce leaky gut damage, repair the intestinal lining, and get your intestinal function back on track–leading to improved immune function, digestion, elimination, detoxification, and better health in general!
Boost Immune Function
Did you know that colostrum contains about 100 times the immunoglobulin proteins as regular milk does? That means that you get about 100 times the immune-fighting cells that you would from regular cow milk, boosting your immune system drastically!
Not only do you get more disease-fighting cells, but you get a lot of the antibodies and transfer factors that will “teach” your body how to recognize and fight disease more effectively. Colostrum basically works like the master key to your immune system, and it will give you all of the disease-fighting “skills” that the mother’s immune system had. It sort of coordinates the immune system, ensuring that your body can recognize threats and destroy them.
However, for those who are suffering from autoimmune disorders (specifically those in the intestines), colostrum can help to rewrite the code in your immune system so that it will be able to tell healthy body tissue apart from abnormal tissue (such as cancerous tissue or infected tissue).
This can help to reduce your body’s tendency to attack itself, reducing the severity of autoimmune disorders. It may not be the ultimate treatment, but it can help to make the autoimmune disorder a bit easier to manage.
If you have a hyperactive immune system (very common with autoimmune disorders),colostrum can help to suppress and calm it down. This will actually increase the efficiency of your immune system, and will make it easier for your body to fight the actual invaders without attacking healthy tissue.
For those with HIV/AIDS, colostrum can actually be a life-saver. Those suffering from AIDS are unable to produce the immunoglobulin proteins needed to combat microbes and pathogens, so colostrum can help their bodies to produce the necessary protective proteins. Once again, it isn’t a cure, but it can help to manage the disease.
Pretty amazing stuff, isn’t it? You’ll find that colostrum is one of the best supplements to take for your immune system. The immune-boosting benefits of colostrum are numerous, and just the fact that it will repair gut damage and improve intestinal health is reason enough for you to consider taking colostrum!
Colostrum has been proven to stimulate your immune system as well as reduce an overactive immune response (common with autoimmune disorders). It is a powerful antioxidant that can help you deal with a number of health disorders–making it a great choice for improved overall health!
