Scientific Background

Colostrum is characterized by numerous properties capable of protecting individuals from the attack of pathogens, colostrum assumption through breast-milk suction has well-established protective effects.

For several reasons human colostrum cannot be easily used and commercialized and, recently, bovine colostrum has been identified as a valid surrogate for human use, since the composition of human and bovine colostrum is very similar.

Bovine colostrum contains a high content of immunoglobulins (Ig) and growth factors and its properties are linked to its variegated composition, which includes carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, amino acids, vitamins and mineral salts. Noteworthy is the protein component, which includes IgG (G1+G2), IgA, IgM that are essential for the immune activity of bovine colostrum. Other relevant components are creatine, creatinine, lactoperoxidase and lactoferrin.

Finally, bovin colostrum can be enriched with other relevant ingredients such as vitamin C and vitamin D3 in order to enhance the natural action of colostrum.
