Although bovine colostrum has been around for a number of years, many of its true benefits are only now being recognized due to increased technology, more sophisticated testing and greater public awareness.
Colostrum is the pre-milk fluid produced by mammal mothers and is provided to their newborn immediately after birth. It is a rich cocktail of immune and growth factors, which literally gives life to mammal babies. Colostrum is not milk and not all colostrum is created equal.
The bovine colostrum (from cows) that is in the Stem Cell Worx formulation has at least twenty one times more growth and immune factors than human colostrum, and has an almost identical molecule structure to that of humans. High quality colostrum in Stem Cell Worx's dietary supplement contains more than 30% of the antibody IgG and has over 54% of protein.
The bovine colostrum in Stem Cell Worx
Intraoral Spray (that is sprayed under the tongue enabling up to 95% of its nutrients to be absorbed) is collected from controlled healthy herds within 12 hours of the mother calving.
The abundant number of vital growth factors present in the high grade bovine colostrum in Stem Cell Worx supplement are:
- Transforming Growth Factors A and B
- Epidermal-Growth Factor
- Fibroblast-Growth Factor
- Platelet-derived Growth Factor; plus
- many immune factors including immunoglobulins, peptides, cytokines.
Calves are born without any immunity to airborne disease-causing organisms therefore their mothers’ colostrum must contain a very large amount of immune, health and growth factors. As a result bovine colostrum is the richest source of colostrum available in the world.
More recently, much of the excitement about bovine colostrum has been generated by clinical studies, scientific research and testimonials. Over 6000 research papers have been released showing substantial benefits associated with consuming bovine colostrum.
Early in the 20th
century, Physician, Albert Sabin is credited with developing the first polio vaccine. He was an advocate of colostrum use and originally isolated the first anti-polio antibodies from bovine colostrum. Forty years later, Campbell and Peterson, using an orthodox vaccination production theory, developed a program whereby cows were immunized with a mixture of pathogens before the birth of their calf. The colostrum collected from these animals was referred to as immune or hyper-immunized colostrum. Research was conducted that showed hyper-immune colostrum was successful in preventing and treating pathogens capable of causing infections.
In 1992 Kummer was the first to demonstrate that colostrum from non-immunized cows could prevent gastrointestinal disease in infants. The New Zealand Dairy Industry pioneered the first commercial colostrum collection system. Hundreds of dairy farmers with more than 400 cows invested in separate stainless steel tanks and the companies developed the means by which to collect, pasteurize, dry and store colostrum.
The colostrum used in Stem Cell Worx Intraoral Spray is collected from pasture-fed cows. It is always GMO-free, the cows are hormone-treatment free, antibiotic free and BSE-free. Due to the cow’s exposure to soil bacteria these cattle have a more developed immune system and as a result the bovine colostrum produced by these cows is extremely high in nutrients. The intensely managed pasturelands result in the cows requiring no supplemental gains or artificial hormones. The bovine colostrum in the Stem Cell Worx Intraoral Spray
is collected fresh, always within 12 hours of a cow giving birth and is only spray dried so all the nutrients and goodness are retained. This colostrum is then processed immediately using high tech equipment at a U.S.A. Laboratory to ensure the nutrients are retained throughout the manufacturing process.
Growth and immune factors decline as we age, particularly IGF-1. Without a strong immune system and healthy stem cells our body becomes more prone to infections, disease and aging. High grade bovine colostrum contains many more growth factors than whey powder.
In summary, bovine colostrum is best known for:
- its abundant growth and immune factors that are scientifically proven to bind with and stimulate one's own adult stem cells from the bone marrow into the bloodstream providing many overall anti-aging and health benefits. However, it is important to note that other natural ingredients, that are present in Stem Cell Worx, are also required to utilize specific pathways that are absolutely necessary to provide a synergistic effect to provide strong and continuous proliferation of adult stem cells.
- its ability to strengthen the immune system.
- repair and renewal of muscle, skin cartilage and nerve tissue.
- increased endurance.
- increased metabolism, fat burning and the building of new lean muscle tissue.
- the best natural source of growth and immune factors that heal and protect the gut wall.
- the best natural source of antibodies to destroy and neutralize pathogens that cause illness.
Top athletes have known about the benefits of colostrum for years. Around the world recreational and professional sports people are discovering the benefits of quality bovine colostrum
for increased performance.
Bovine colostrum is one of the few health supplements that is cleared by the International Olympic Drug Committee.
