“A startling discovery promises hope for Alzheimer’s sufferers and their families. In a new clinical trial, a colostrum component is found effective in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease (AD)!” John Buhmeyer, MS
Our brains change as we age, just like the rest of our body, and that is normal. Most of us notice problems with remembering certain things from time to time. Everyone has occasional memory lapses, like losing track of where you put your keys or forgetting the name of the character from a book you read last week. However, serious memory loss, confusion and other major changes in the way our minds work may be a sign that brain cells are failing, and this is something that should not be taken lightly. These more serious symptoms may be early signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease, where dementia symptoms gradually worsen over several years. The early signs of the disease may be forgetting recent events or conversations. As the disease progresses, a person with Alzheimer’s disease will develop severe memory impairment and lose the ability to carry out everyday tasks.
Memory loss – a person with Alzheimer’s may repeat statements and questions over and over. They may also forget conversations, appointments, or events. They may routinely misplace possessions, get lost in familiar places, have trouble finding the right words to identify objects, expresses thoughts, and eventually forget the names of family members.
Thinking and reasoning – for a person with Alzheimer’s, multitasking would be especially difficult. It may also be challenging to manage finances and pay bills on time. These difficulties may progress to an inability to recognize and deal with numbers.
Making decisions – the ability to make decisions and judgments in daily situations will decline over time. It may also be difficult to respond effectively to everyday problems such as food burning on the stove.
Changes in behavior – brain changes that occur in Alzheimer’s disease can affect one’s mood and could cause mood swings. This could lead to depression, irritability and aggressiveness, changes in sleeping habits, distrust in others, and even loss of inhibition.
Colostrum on Alzheimer’s
According to John Buhmeyer, MS, Proline Rich Polypeptides (PRPs), a component of colostrum, is found to improve the mental functioning of Alzheimer’s patients. Researchers at the University Medical School in Wroclaw, Poland, conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Results showed that oral administration of colostrinin, a proline-rich polypeptide (PRP) complex isolated from colostrum, improve the outcome of Alzheimer’s patients with mild to moderate dementia. 8 of the 15 AD patients treated with Colostrinin improved, while the 7 other AD patients in this group stabilized. In contrast, none of the 31 patients from the selenium or placebo groups improved. Additionally, colostrinin was found to be a remarkably safe natural supplement.
Another Research study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has raised the question of whether bacterial infections play a role in diseases such as Alzheimer’s. The study reported that certain strains of the bacterium, E. coli, can cause fibers similar to the amyloid fibers found in Alzheimer’s. These fibers accumulate in the brain and form plaque, leading to the death of neurons, loss of memory, loss of control of bodily functions and eventually death.
“Colostrum promotes the re-growth and re-colonization of beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract which helps fight harmful bacterial invaders, including E. coli. The results of a study conducted at the International Medical Center of Japan strongly suggest that the administration of bovine colostrum is effective as protection against colonization and infection by E. coli.” Source
“Scientists have determined that up to 90% of all infectious disease enters the body through the GI tract. Colostrum naturally contains a unique combination of immune and growth factors to heal the GI tract and prevent infectious agents from being absorbed into the body. Immunoglobulins (lgA, IgF, IgE and IgM), lactoferrin and other immune factors can kill, inhibit and prevent the reproduction of pathogenic invaders (infections) and protect against toxins.” Source
