Welcome to Natural Colostrum

Colostrum is a form of milk produced by the mammary glands of mammals in late pregnancy and the few days after giving birth.

Colostrum is an amazing phenomenon.
One's health can benefit from consuming colostrum on daily basis.

Colostrum contains lots of growth factors, promotes anti-aging, increase your physical strength, and promotes one's body's to recover from damage caused by age, injury and more

In this blog I gladly present you my collections of resources about this amazing substance.

How Colostrum Helps Fight Free Radicals and Down Syndrome

Free radicals are everywhere in the body. They are responsible for aging, tissue damage, and several diseases. Free radicals are organic molecules that are highly unstable. These molecules are looking for electrons to fill the empty spaces of their atoms.


So, these free radical molecules continue to float around until they successfully steal electrons. There are various molecules in the body from which they can steal these electrons. These can be any molecules that build up the body.

When they have successfully stolen electrons from body's molecules, the body's molecules became unstable and became the next free radicals. So the snow ball effect continues to roll on. If not controlled it can lead to a devastating result to the body.

So, What Produces Free Radicals ?
The simple answer is your own precious body. This is a very surprising answer. The question continues. How does the body produce free radicals ?

The body generates energy from food by conducting a process called oxidation. This process convert the food into the form of chemical potential energy, for later usage.

The irony is when the oxidation of foodstuffs takes place, it behaves like a controlled fire which liberates energy but can also let sparks fly, giving rise to potential damage. The sparks in this analogy are free electrons escaping the transport system. These unpaired electrons readily form free radical molecules which are chemically reactive and highly unstable.

But There are Other Sources Too...
These external sources include air / environmental pollution, cigarette smoke, and poisons like herbicides.

Colostrum Can Help You Fight Disturbing Free Radicals
Colostrum is a rich source of transforming growth factors (TGF) which are polypeptides that promote tissue repair, cell proliferation, and wound healing, and have anti-cancer properties. Studies show bovine Colostrum contains up to 200 times the mitogenic potency of human Colostrum.

The most interesting part is Lactoferron / Lactoferrin, it's found in Colostrum. Lactoferin is an iron binder protein and have the ability to bond excess iron ions, so, therefore, it can inhibit the growth of micro-organisans and tumors.

Lactoferron also reduces the damaging effects of free radicals, which are known to be cancer risk factors.
