Colostrum is occasionally and astutely known as ‘first milk’. It is produced in mammalian mammary glands in the latest stage of pregnancy and in the first few days after birth, and is quite simply the most important meal in one’s life. It is in effect a whole food that is minuscule in size yet extremely high in vital nutrients, growth factors and antibodies essential for the early development of newborn life. All-Life Colostrum is 30% immunoglobulin G (IgG), making it approximately double the strength of typical colostrum supplements.
Colostrum is responsible for triggering no fewer than fifty biochemical processes in a newborn’s body, which will provide the life-long foundation of the growth process and the immune system. Bovine colostrum is useful for boosting immunity, preventing autoimmunity, tissue healing, and as an agent for fighting infection and disease.
Dairy cows are the only non-human animals that meet all criteria for transferring colostrum to humans since their key immunoglobulins are not species specific. Bovine colostrum is in fact far richer in immune factors than human colostrum, and it contains factors that allow it to pass through the stomach and still remain active. AOR’s All-Life Colostrum is derived from livestock raised under the best conditions and processed under the most rigorous quality control conditions, giving it the highest purity and potency.
All-Life Colostrum is collected and processed within 12 hours of calving from American pasture cows. Higher quality colostrum is extracted from cattle exposed to severe temperature changes since this results in higher immune factor production. All-Life Colostrum has been purified of all but trace quantities of lactose and is freeze dried to preserve the biological activity of its special proteins. All-Life Colostrum helps to support the immune system and immune function within the upper respiratory tract.
