If you are battling with any disease or chronic illness, you can bet your immune system plays a part. Colostrum is a natural product that regulates immune function helping the body to heal itself without harmful side effects often caused by medications.
Autoimmune diseases like lupus, multiple sclerosis, fibromialgia, rheumatoid arthritis, even HIV virus can be hugely improved by the intake of colostrum. In cases of autoimmune disease, some allergen triggers a severe allergic response that in turn damages the body tissue. For example, multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects different parts of the nervous system through the destruction of the myelin sheaths, the membrane that protects the body’s nerves. This destruction produces any number of symptoms, including blurred vision, staggering gait, numbness, dizziness, slurred speech and even paralysis. In short, the results can be devastating.
The difficulty came in figuring out how to “turn off” the immune response that was causing the damage. In 1983, Polish researchers discovered a small protein chain called Polyprotein-rich Peptide (PRP) in colostrum. This immune factor was found to have the same ability to regulate the immune system as the hormones of the thymus gland. PRP is able to stimulate T-cell precursors to form helper T-cells, thereby promoting the immune system into action against pathogens. More impressive, however, in relation to autoimmune disease, is PRP’s ability to “turn-off” the immune system. It does this by telling the T-cell precursor to produce T-suppressor cells. These are the cells that slow down an overactive immune response, thereby stopping the attack on the body’s own tissue.
Colostrum is helpful for the autoimmune sufferer in many ways:
Altered immunity may be the hidden cause of arteriosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. For example, the American College of Cardiology recently reported that a common type of Chlamydia bacteria has been associated with arterial plaque formation in over 79% of patients with heart disease. Also, a recent New England Journal of Medicine article concluded that heart disease is the result of immune sensitization to cardiac antigens. In other words, once heart tissue is damaged, the immune system begins creating antibodies, which then cause more harm. Because heart disease resembles an autoimmune response in this way, colostrum PRP can help limit the severity of the disease by toning down the immune system’s attack on damaged heart tissue. In addition, the other immune factors found in colostrum can directly combat the Chlamydia bacteria. Finally, IGF-1 and growth hormone in colostrum can lower LDL-cholesterol while increasing HDL-cholesterol concentrations. Colostrum growth factors promote the repair and regeneration of heart muscle and the regeneration of new blood vessels for collateral coronary circulation.
Cancerous cells are continuously being formed and destroyed in almost every human body. The problem comes when a weakened immune system allows for cancerous cells to spread and destroy other healthy tissues. Ironically, chemotherapy, the treatment of choice for many cancers, compromises the body’s natural immune function, leaving patients susceptible to even more infection.
The 1985 Steven Rosenberg Book, Quiet Strides in the War on Cancer, first popularized the benefits of natural immune boosters in the treatment of cancer. Rosenberg had great success with cancer patients, including one complete cure, by using a treatment that flooded the body with killer immune cells, as well as chemical messengers called cytokines. Since Rosenberg’s time, the same cytokines found uniquely in colostrum (interleukins 1, 6, 10, Interferon G and Lymphokines) have been the single most researched elements in the search for the cure for cancer.
Colostral lactalbumin has been found to cause the selective death of cancer cells, leaving the surrounding non-cancerous tissue unaffected. The incredible mix of immune and growth factors in colostrum can inhibit the spread of cancer cells. And, if viruses are involved in either the initiation or the spread of cancer, colostrum could prove to be one of the best ways to prevent the disease in the first place.
Allergy symptoms occur when the immune system overreacts to the presence of a substance (an allergen) that’s not normally considered to be of danger to the body. Allergens include pollen, pet dander, dust as well as different types of foods that can cause allergic reactions in some people.
Colostrum has an ingredient called proline-rich polypeptide (PRP) which is one of the main components responsible for eliminating or improving the symptoms of allergies. The PRPs inhibit the overproduction of lymphocytes and T-cells that are triggered in an allergic reaction. They also create helper T-cells and suppressor T-cells which turn off the immune response. PRPs are highly anti-inflammatory, which helps to reduce the effects of the histamine that’s been released.
Studies show that PRP has the same ability to regulate activity of the immune system as do hormones produced by the thymus gland. It can stimulate an under active system into dealing with disease causing organisms and it can also suppress an over active system that results from autoimmune disorders and allergic reactions. This is truly remarkable built in intelligence.
BodyBoost Colostrum is beneficial for human, canine and feline consumption, so if your pet suffers from allergies you can give them BodyBoost as well.
When flu season hits people swarm to the doctor’s offices and emergency rooms. Many people believe that the flu shot is the best line of defense. According to the CDC the flu vaccine was only 36% effective this year. If you are playing defense in the NFL and stop your opponent from catching the ball 32% of the time, your team probably lost. These are not great odds. On top of not so great odds, you also get a dash of formaldehyde, a sprinkling of preservatives and a dollop of mercury! Yum uh?
Why such bad odds you ask? Well let’s hear what the CDC has to say about that…“The flu shot protects against the 3 viruses that research suggests will be most common.” Yet there are hundreds of strains of the influenza virus. So….how is that effective?
You can instead equip your immune system to be able to ward off any virus, bacteria, fungus or parasite. Your body is innately intelligent in protecting you against outside pathogens. The only reason people get sick is because their immune systems are compromised. This can be a result of a poor diet, chronic stress, medications, a lack of physical exercise, etc., etc.
Colostrum is a 100% natural supplement made by mammals for the sole purpose of building and supporting the immune system of the mammals that ingest it. When you have a healthy immune system, you don’t need to gamble on the hunches of a bunch of people who paid a lot of money for lab coats to guess what the popular strain of the year will be.
Before the development of antibiotics, colostrum was the main source of immunoglobulins used to fight infections. In fact, when Albert Sabin made his first oral vaccine against polio, the immunoglobulin he used came from bovine colostrum. As we age our immune system depletes, BodyBoost Colostrum contains antibodies to help build it to its maximum effectiveness.
