What is Colostrum?

Colostrum or first milk is a form of milk produced by the mammary glands of human, goat, cow and other mammals  in late pregnancy. Most species will generate colostrum within one day of giving birth.

Benefits of Colostrum

Newborn babies have very small digestive systems, and human colostrum delivers its nutrients in a very concentrated low-volume form. It has a mild laxative effect, encouraging the passing of the baby’s first stool, which is called meconium. This clears excess bilirubin, a waste product of dead red blood cells which is produced in large quantities at birth due to blood volume reduction, from the infant’s body and helps prevent jaundice.

Chemically, human colostrum is very rich in proteins, vitamin A, and sodium chloride, but contains lower amounts of carbohydrates, lipids, and potassium than normal milk. The most pertinent bioactive components in colostrum are growth factors and antimicrobial factors. The antibodies in colostrum provide passive immunity while growth factors stimulate the development of the gut. They are passed to the neonate and provide the first protection against pathogens. The passive immunity from the mother gets transferred to the newborn.

Goat Milk Colostrum is unique because it is closest to human milk. Before the development of antibiotics, colostrum was the main source of immunoglobulins used to fight infections. Now interest is once again returning to natural alternatives to antibiotics, namely, colostrum. Study showed protective effects against influenza. Colostrum also has antioxidant components, such as lactotransferrin and hemopexin, which binds free heme in the body.

Goat milk colostrum also promote muscle growth, helps build bone, nerve tissue, connective tissue, skin collagen and epithelial growth factors to slow the aging process. Some athletes have used colostrum supplementation in an attempt to improve their performance, decrease recovery time, and prevent sickness during peak performance levels.
