About Colostrum 40% lgG:
* Optimal immune support potential
* Colostrum is a highly-concentrated source of powerful immune and growth
factors produced from mammary glands shortly after giving birth. Pure
Encapsulations Colostrum is derived from BSE-, hormone-, pesticide-, and
antibiotic-free herds providing a pure, rich source. As a nutritional
supplement, bovine colostrum provides exceptional, synergistic support.
Immunoglobins, the most abundant types of immune factors in colostrum, are
large protein molecules that include Immunoglobins G (IgG), A (IgA), E (IgE),
D (IgD), and M (IgM). Each has a specific role in natural defense, including
activation of various immune cells. IgG is found in the highest
concentration and helps to neutralize toxins. Lactoferrin is a versatile,
iron-binding protein which enhances the body's ability to utilize iron and
also stimulates immune system cells. Proline-rich Polypeptide (PRP) is a
hormone produced by the thymus gland to help balance and activate the immune
response. Lymphokines, interferons, and interleukins are proteins that
activate the functions of various immune cells. Oligosaccharides and
lysozyme help maintain a healthy intestinal membrane and promote the growth
of friendly bacteria. Studies show that other components of colostrum also
promote intestinal function. Growth factors include insulin growth factors
(IGF-1 and IGF-2) and transforming growth factors (TGF-A and TGF-B). These
growth factors, identical in composition to human growth factors, have the
potential to enhance immune cell function and to nutritionally support
healthy connective and nerve tissues in the body. Furthermore, growth
factors promote glucose and fat metabolism for fuel, support protein
synthesis, and help maintain lean muscle. This supports healthy body
composition and has demonstrated the ability to enhance speed and strength
training. Today's dairy cows produce on average four to five gallons of
colostrum in their first milking. The calf consumes one gallon of colostrum
in its first two feedings, assuring passive immunity. The excess colostrum
is not fed to the calf as it can cause intestinal upset after the first
feedings. This excess is an ideal source for use in nutritional supplements.
Pure Encapsulations Colostrum, derived from USDA and FDA certified dairy
farms in the US, is defatted and processed at low heat to preserve
nutritional activity. It is standardized to contain 40% IgG and is also a
concentrated source of lactoferrin and IGF- 1. Colostrum is a nutrient-dense
combination of immune system components and growth factors for supporting
optimal natural defense, intestinal function, connective tissue health, and
athletic potential that cannot be found elsewhere in nature.
